Panicky search for a cat-friendly apartment in Santa Barbara turned up some amusing things, like an "apartment" that's very clearly a garage with a rug on the floor (sheesh!) and ... a "Hobbit House". I am very sad that the hobbit house is $5000/month and not in the right area to bike to work, but .. text and pictures saved for posterity/amusement:

Imaginative and multi-storied, this unique property is truly a “work of art”. Fondly referred to as “The Whale” or “The Hobbit House” it features 2 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths on several levels in the main house and a separate 1 bedroom loft with its own bath adjacent a large room that could be used in a variety of ways. A central elevator offers an alternative to the interior stairways. Custom fireplaces, a spa, and built-in couch are only a few of the additional features in this home. Completely secluded and surrounded by undulating walls, there is a lap pool and inner courtyard, in addition to the front entry patio. The home is available now for $5,000 per month, and includes pool service, elevator service and gardening. For more information about this unique property please contact REDACTED.

Hooray for eccentric house design. If only we could warp time and space to get this fountain nearby...
