Harry Potter's House at Privet Drive Up for Sale

You could live in the home Harry Potter grew up in and hated.


The real-world home that was used as the Privet Drive set for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is now up for sale. Located in Berkshire, England, the three-bedroom house is listed at £475,000 ($619,500).

In the books, the Dursley home is located at 4 Privet Drive, in the village of Little Whinging, Surrey, which is not a real place. In reality, the home can be found at 12 Picket Post Close in Martins Heron, Bracknell in Berkshire.

If you scroll through the images in the gallery at the listing page, you'll notice the home has a modern style and looks nothing like what was shown in the movie (via EW).

According to the BBC, the home's owner was approached by Warner Bros. in 2000 to use the building for the movie, which came out in 2001. The home was morphed into how the Dursleys would have had it and shooting took place over two weeks. Set designers didn't need to build a cupboard under the stairs, as the home already had one.

Harry Potter lived with his aunt Petunia, uncle Vernon, and cousin Dudley at 4 Privet Drive because they were his only living relatives after Voldemort killed his parents. A number of notable things happened during Harry's stay at the house, including that time he blew up aunt Marge.
