JK Rowling’s property is on the market
It’s been a busy month for JK Rowling; not only has she just released her first adult book, The Casual Vacancy, but she has also put her eight bedroom home on the market.
The famous author wrote many of the Harry Potter books in the Edinburgh property that is now up for sale for £2.25million.
The family home, which she shared with her husband and three children until 2009, comes complete with two kitchens, a library and plenty of period features including flagstone floors, fireplaces and sash windows. Rowling’s former home also boasts an extensive security system and electronic gates – to keep out the eyes of those hard-core Harry Potter fans.
The stone house is surrounded by a landscaped garden and features a separate split-level summer house/office with its own kitchen, double bedroom and sitting room – perhaps where Rowling dreamed up young Harry’s future adventures?
