Harry Potter fans can now live at Hogwarts

Take a sneak peek inside the refurbished magical School of Witchcraft and Wizardry…

Harry Potter fans with enough Knuts, Sickles and Galleons can move into their own corner of Hogwarts after the real-life school used in the films was renovated into apartments.

Royal Connaught Park in Bushey, Hertfordshire, formerly the Royal Masonic School for Boys, doubled as Hogwarts when its 1,400sq 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 Victorian Gothic stone and turreted Grade II-listed building, set in 100 acres of parkland, was constructed in 1903 and is just 20 minutes away from central London on the train.

This property is a real dream. A private leisure centre is based in the building next door, which boasts an indoor swimming pool, steam room and sauna. There are also tennis courts on site as well.

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

The main building has also been the setting for a host of other British classics including Monty Python’s Meaning Of Life, Hot Fuzz and TV shows such as EastEnders, Spooks and Midsomer Murders.

The property is available immediately on an unfurnished basis and is listed with Dey King and Haria Estate Agents.
