Harry Potter's house could be yours


Harry Potter's house,  where he lived in a cupboard under the stairs, is now up for sale! 

And it could be yours for $620,000, according to CNN. That's mere change in the wizarding world. 

In the "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone," the house known as "4 Privet Drive" belongs to Vernon and Petunia Dursley, Potter's aunt and uncle. 

Potter lived in the home for 11 years after he was left on their doorstep when his parents died. 

The home is actually located at 12 Picket Post Close in the suburban town of Bracknell in Berkshire, according to CNN. That' about 25 miles west of London. 

The $620,000 home has three bedrooms, a backyard and a garage and its price is comparable to other homes in the area.

The largest of the three bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom, according to the listing on the property site Zoopla.

Zoopla also notes that there is a spacious living room that leads out to the garden.

The property has recently undergone a renovation and is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac. 

In 2003, during the height of Harry Potter craze, the house sold for $325,000, according to CNN.
