(Realtor.com)

Elijah Wood's Austin home goes on the market.

It may not be The Shire, but Elijah Wood is selling the next best thing: his 130-year-old classic Victorian home in Austin.


The "Lord of the Rings" actor, famous for his role as Frodo Baggins, is selling his former home for $1.85 million. Wood bought the house for $1.075 million back in 2012 and has since made a great deal of upgrades to the three-story home.

The house, located at 608 W. Mary St., features luxury amenities like a clawfoot bathtub, marble countertops, hand-carved trim and banisters, a guesthouse and a large front porch, perfect for watching Texas' famous sunsets.

The 3,285-square-foot home has four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, two living rooms and a third story that overlooks the Austin skyline.

The listing is held by Blake Taylor of Taylor Real Estate.
