    It’s time to visit Gringotts, as Harry Potter’s home at 4 Privet Drive is officially up for sale.

    Famously known as the house where Harry Potter was raised by Vernon and Petunia Dursley, tormented by Dudley Dursley and forced to live in the cupboard under the stairs, the property in Bracknell is currently on the market for a reasonable £475,000.

    The house was used during the filming of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, but due to logistical problems was replicated for the remaining seven films. It has since becoming arguably one of the most famous houses worldwide and even features in the Warner Bros Harry Potter studio tour.

    The property was last sold in May 2010 for £290,000, after the previous owner put the house on the market in the hope of making an added profit thanks to its magical associations.

    According to Chancellors estate agents, ’situated in a quiet col-de-sac location, this detached property has recently undergone complete renovation to an extremely high standard.’ It’s also ideal for commuters, based just 0.2 miles way from Martins Heron railway station.

    The downstairs boasts a large reception room, kitchen and dining space as well as a bathroom and the infamous cupboard under the stairs. Buyers will also have a spacious garden, featuring a large patio. Upstairs you’ll find a family bathroom and three bedrooms, including a master bedroom with an en-suite.

    If you ask us we’d say it’s already worth the money merely for the unlimited access to selfies in Harry’s old sleeping grounds alone.
