If you’ve been searching for a house with a touch of magic, this one will be hard to beat.

Better known as 4 Privet Drive, Little Whinging, this iconic home from the first Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, has been put on the market for £475,000 ($822,000) in Bracknell in the United Kingdom.

Easily recognised by Harry Potter fans worldwide, this house was chosen by the film’s producers in 2001 to be the Dursley’s house, where Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter lived with his cruel Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley Dursley and was forced to sleep in the cupboard under stars, complete with a camp bed and spiders.

Any potential buyers can rest assured they won’t have to sleep in such cramped conditions as Harry.

The recently renovated home has three bedrooms, a bathroom, an ensuite to the master bedroom, a sizable living area (made famous by the letter scene where hundreds of Hogwarts letters whiz around the room), a spacious garden with a patio, a very familiar entryway and arguably the coolest under-stair storage cupboard in the world.

Although this home was used in the filming of the first Harry Potter movie, all Dursley house scenes in the subsequent seven films were shot on set at the Warner Bros studios in London.

The house was last sold for £290,000 in May 2010, with the current owners now hoping to conjure a tidy profit from its links to the Harry Potter film.
