A three-bedroom bungalow where JRR Tolkien used to live has gone on sale with an asking price of £1 million.
Tolkien left the house to move to Oxford shortly before he died
The writer, who was raised in Birmingham, lived at the address from 1968-1972 during his retirement.
The high price tag has been put down to the Lord Of The Rings effect and it being in a "sought-after area" of Poole, Dorset.
Richard Farnes, of Goadsby estate agents, said he anticipated a high degree of interest to be shown by fans.
The author left the property to move to Oxford shortly after his wife, Edith, died and he too died the following year.
Mr Farnes told BBC News: "It's in a desirable area. It has a great view and a wooded backdrop- with the view and the history you can't put a price on it."
