Fans of Harry Potter finally have the opportunity to move into his childhood house. No, not Gryffindor Tower, but 4 Privet Drive where Harry spent much of his childhood with his Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia Dursley and their son, Dudley. The family home that was used as the Dursleys’ residence in Harry Potter has been put up for sale, complete with courtyard, three bedrooms and a storage room under the stairs of course that was once Harry’s room.
There is one big and important difference between the actual home and the one in the film. In the film, the house is located at 4 Privet Drive, village of Little Whinging, in the county of Surrey, but in real life, the house can be found at 12 Picket Post Close in Martins Heron, Bracknell. Filming at the house only took place for the first movie in the series, after which a Privet Drive set was built to depict Harry’s childhood home in the films.
While moving into Gryffindor Tower still requires a letter of acceptance from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, for this house you just need £475,000 ($620,000). Perhaps it would be more realistic to wait for the owl to appear with that letter?
