If it’s not enough to just visit the locations from the ‘Harry Potter' movies, now you can live in one.
Royal Connaught Park in Bushey, Hertfordshire, UK, which served as the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry’s Great Hall, is now being turned into luxury apartments. The first 28 units have already gone on sale, with prices ranging from around $990,000 to around $4 million.
“We’ve tried to retain as much of [the original] character as possible. The outside of the main building is the same, and we’ve retained a lot of the internal features too — the original staircases, windows, some original flooring, fireplaces and exposed roof beams. Basically, as much as we can,” the property’s owners have said of the renovation.
The dining hall will also remain as it was in the “Harry Potter” films and will be available for tenants to use for parties. There will also be townhouses available in the tower, used as part of Dumbledore’s office in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.”
In addition to the “Harry Potter” franchise, Royal Connaught Park was featured in “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” and “Monty Python’s Meaning of Life,” among other productions.
Would you want to live on this historic property, if you could afford it?
