Before going to Hogwarts, Harry lived at 4 Privet Drive with his mean auntie and uncle and his awful cousin Dudley. Forced to live under the stairs, the house advert does in deed mention the famous cupboard but simply refers to it as “the cloakroom. The lovely home situated near Reading comes with three bedrooms, a large living room and a south-facing garden complete with a patio and grass area. The listing from Chancellors estate agents states that the home is “situated in a quiet cul-de-sac location” and has “recently undergone complete renovation to an extremely high standard”.
The house was picked back in 2011 out of hundreds of homes around the UK to be the Dursley’s home in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Due to logistical problems, the house actually only ever featured in the one film - but the whole street was recreated in a studio for later films.
Filming for the magical franchise also took place in Bracknell’s Swinley Forest, as a 10-year-old boy discovered back in 2009 when he found a call sheet for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows while taking his dogs for a walk!
