Unique Hobbit Home For Sale In Wisconsin- A Rare Treat
« on: May 27, 2019, 12:16:38 PM »

By Mayukh Saha / Truth Theory

If you are an eco-buyer and also a fan of Tolkien, then this is the perfect house for you. At $285,000, this completely unique, eco-friendly,  bermed, earth-sheltered home is a catch for you. This was built by two professors, Emogene Nelson, and Pat Clark, in 1972, during the moment of tensions related to the energy crisis. They constructed it because they believed that going underground would save resources and money.

While the furnace at this 2000 plus square feet home is always kept at around 60-degree Fahrenheit, it is still extremely comfortable. Named the Clark Nelson home after its first occupants, this two bedrooms, two bathroom house hasnít had any upgrades in the last 30 years- the period of time the second owner owned it. Yet,  Dale Antiel, of Edina Realty believes that if listed in 2019, the price would be well within the range of $325,000 and $350000.

The greater fool theory is alive & well  :icon_mrgreen:

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Help me understand why this listing demonstrates anything about the "greater fool theory." A bermed, earth-sheltered home seems like a really good idea, especially if you want to manage energy costs. I had actually spent some tome looking at domed structures for precisely this reason. So whence the snark?
