Brandy Hall was built by Gorhendad Oldbuck in Buckland, who changed his name to "Brandybuck". It covered a low hill in Buckland and was expanded as the Brandybuck family grew. By the time of the War of the Ring, it had "three large front-doors, many side-doors, and about a hundred windows." The Gaffer referred to it as "a regular warren." It was Frodo's childhood home before he was taken in by his uncle Bilbo Baggins.
