Attention Harry Potter Fans: ‘Number 4 Privet Drive’ Is Up for Sale
Harry Potter visited a number of locations during his adventures through the wizarding world, but the journey all started at one special site: 4 Privet Drive. Now, the real-life building that served as Harry’s childhood home in the first film is on the market, CNBC reports.
The house—made famous by its fictional address in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001)—is located about 40 miles west of London in Martins Heron, Bracknell. The online listing includes an asking price of £475,000 (or about $620,000), which is comparable to other, less-iconic properties located in the same cul-de-sac.
The three-bedroom home’s description page states it recently underwent a “complete renovation to an extremely high standard.” Notable features include a revamped alarm system, an en-suite bathroom, and a backyard garden with a large patio. (The listing makes no mention of owl-proof doors or a cupboard under the stairs).
The house has been sold a couple times since making its film debut in 2001, first in 2004 and then again in 2010. Harry Potter fans who don’t have $620,000 to put down on the original Dursley home can visit the set used in later films on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour.
