Harry's not-so-happy home up for sale Harry's not-so-happy home up for sale

The famous Harry Potter series, which has been an international craze since 29th June 1997 when the first book was published, this week sees its wizard’s house going up for sale by Sterling Estate Agents. 4 Privet drive is up with a selling price of £650,000, even for its first time on the market since 2012. This is much higher than the predicted selling price set in December 2013 at £501,725. At the moment number 4 is housing the Hussain family, who are big fans of Harry Potter but hadn't realised the significance of the address when they first bought the house. Their son was reading the popular series at the time and he was the first one who acknowledged that it was Harry Potter’s house. After a while, the Hussain family were receiving letters to Privet Drive attempting to talk to Harry. The house is situated very close to the Warner Bros studios, so the Hussain's occasionally let family and friends take a picture of their house before visiting the Watford attraction.     We asked a  Sterling Estate agent whether there is more interest in 4 Privet Drive than other houses in Leavesden. He said “not really actually, we don’t have many houses in Leavesden so there aren’t very many people who realise that it is there”. Even though it is such a famous setting, this house is not very well known because most people think that it doesn’t exist in real life.
