Harry Potter fans have been dreaming of this day for years: the chance to live in Hogwarts! The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was shot in several locations. But this building – Royal Connaught Park – also known as the Great Hall, is now a luxury apartment complex. Why have a custom built home when you could live here?
All about the building
Royal Connaught Park was featured in the first three movies in the Harry Potter franchise, according to Digital Trends. The tower was part of Professor Dumbledore’s office in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
According to Digital Trends, the construction was once built in 1903 east of England. It was formally known as the Royal Masonic School for Boys.
Now, it’s a luxury apartment complex and it needs owners to fill the units! There are 28 apartments, detached homes and townhouses, all costing between $996,961 and over $4M.
What owners can expect to see inside
Caroline Comer of Comer Homes told The Daily Mail that they tried to retain much of that character as possible. “The outside of the main building is the same, and we’ve retained a lot of internal features too – the original staircases, windows, some original flooring, fireplaces and exposed roof beams,” she said in an interview.
The dining hall may be rented out for weddings and functions, reports Digital Trends.
Here’s a sneak peek of what the interior looks like:
If you (realistically) don’t live in a fantasy land and cannot move to England to live in what’s formally known at Hogwarts, why not build your own home and incorporate similar features? Working with a custom home builder is a great way to get the exact home you want without exhausting your search in the real estate market.
To choose a custom home builder for your home project, read through customer reviews, look at image galleries, and read articles about them! These tools will help you make an informed decision on who to hire.
