You Can Now Live In Real Life Hogwarts Where The Movies Were Filmed

It's time to raid your Gringotts account. A luxury flat has been made available to rent in the real-life school where the Harry Potter films were filmed - but it's going to set you back a fair few knuts, sickles and galleons.

An ad for the refurbished-flats-cum-magical-school-of-witchcraft-and-wizardry was recently posted on Right Move, outlining that those with enough cash saved up can move into their own corner of Hogwarts.

The Grade II-listed, Victorian Gothic building is set in 100 acres of parkland and is located just twenty minutes away from central London on the train. And get this: it has turrets.

Here's what the ad says : "Royal Connaught Park in Bushey, Hertfordshire, formerly the Royal Masonic School for Boys, doubled as Hogwarts when its 1,400 sq ft dining hall was used as the Great Hall in the first three Potter films.

"But the building has since been transformed into flats, with this modern two-bedroom apartment available for rent for £2,200 per calendar month."

"The flat also comes complete with two allocated parking spaces, double glazed windows, underfloor heating, a 24-hour concierge and a shuttle service to the Watford Junction and Bushey stations."

It's no bargain, but as well as being part of Potter lore it also boasts a private leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, steam room and sauna - and there are tennis courts on site as well.

So let's triangulate where the property was actually featured in the films: "The tower at Royal Connaught Park was Dumbledore's famous round office in the fifth movie, The Order Of The Phoenix, while residents can also rent out the Great Hall for weddings and other private events," the listing explained.
