Harry Potter fans can now live at Hogwarts as the film set is turned into houses
Wizard fans can now live at Hogwarts, as the large house that was part of the school in several Harry Potter films is transformed into houses available for purchase. Eagle-eyed fans will recognize the housing estate’s dining hall, Royal Connaught Park, as the Great Hall of Hogwarts thanks to its presence in the first three films of the beloved franchise.
Located in Bushey, the Big House was originally established as the new home of the Royal Masonic School for Boys in 1900 with over 800 pupils attending the school in 1939. The school closed in 1977 due to low attendance and became the United States International University before achieving stardom in several films.
No longer where fictional young wizards used to sit to feast, the iconic Great Hall is now the dining hall for residents, who can live in the 300 houses constructed around the building by property developer The Comer Group . Fans now have the incredible chance to live out their childhood dreams of living at Hogwarts – but at a price, with houses starting at £610,000 for a two-bedroom apartment.
The gated development has a gym, swimming pool, tennis club and 100 acres of parkland that residents can enjoy inside the iconic grounds. Homes are now being advertised for purchase on the quaint magical development which has been described by The Comer Group as ‘the epitome of contemporary luxury in perfect harmony with Victorian splendor’.
