Harry Potter's '4 Privet Drive' up for sale

Harry Potter fans now have a chance to own a piece of Potter's childhood.

The home known as "4 Privet Drive" in the Harry Potter film series is up for sale in the U.K.

The three bedroom home, which is actually located at 12 Picket Post Close, in Bracknell, is on the market for £475,000, or almost $620,000.

In the series, Harry Potter, who was orphaned after an evil wizard killed his parents, is forced to live with his aunt and uncle, the Dursleys at 4 Privet Drive.

In 2000, Warner Brothers reached out to the homeowners and requested permission to transform the house into the Dursley's home for filming, BBC reported.

The owners complied, and the home was transformed into the Dursley's "4 Privet Drive."

Real Estate agent Paul Bosanko told the BBC the property has received massive attention since it was listed.

"When we first launched the property four days ago, we did not mention the Harry Potter connection, but this morning it's been pretty evident that the world is interested in this property, and there is an awful lot of hype,” Bosanko told the BBC.
