Hertfordshire mansion Royal Connaught Park, the setting for Hogwarts’ Great Hall (featured in the first three Harry Potter films), has been converted into luxury flats, townhouses and detached homes.
The Victorian Gothic mansions's tower was Dumbledore’s office in The Order of the Phoenix and its buildings and grounds were also used as backdrop in several scenes.
Here's the Great Hall in The Prisoner of Azkaban:
While Dumbledore’s office now forms part of one of the townhouses, the 1,400 square-foot dining room has been left largely unchanged and is available for residents to use.
Potter party in the Great Hall, anyone?
Royal Connaught Park was constructed in 1903 and was the Royal Masonic School for Boys until 1977. Since then it has been a location for over 400 films and television programmes, including St. Trinian’s, Starter for Ten, Hot Fuzz, EastEnders, Spooks and Silent Witness.
Which is why it may look familiar…
In 2009 restoration specialist Comer Homes began developing the property as a luxury residential complex and it’s now in the final phase of the mammoth project. When finished it will have 380 apartments and houses set in 100 acres of parkland.
A little different to Harry and co's dormitories, huh?
And we don't think they had access to this either:
So far 28 homes have been put up for sale, with prices ranging from £649,000 to £2.8 million. Wonder if a certain Ms. Rowling will be putting her name down for one?
