Ever fantasised about spending 11 years of your life sleeping in The Cupboard Under the Stairs, 4 Privet Drive, Little Whinging, Surrey… and then receiving an owl-delivered letter inviting you to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry ONLY to later discover that you are the famous child who survived the death curse of the world’s most powerful evil wizard and will have to spend the next 7 years of your life battling against a painful scar, flying on a broomstick, destroying cursed tiaras (sorry, diadems) and becoming one of the biggest global franchises?
Weeeeell that isn’t going to happen. But the Dursley’s House on ‘Privet Drive’ (its real location is in Berkshire) is up for sale for just under half a million pounds. Sounds cheap to a Londoner and even cheaper to a Potter fan, am I right? This 3-bedroom detached house in Bracknell has gone on sale for £475,000 with Chancellors estate agents. It was only used to shoot for the first movie – a replica was made for the following films, which can now be found at the Harry Potter Studio Tour in Watford.
