Number 4 Privet Drive for sale near Leavesden Studios

When the Hussain family bought Number 4 Privet Drive, they didn’t realize the significance of the address. It was their son Zaine, who was reading the books at the time, who excitedly informed them that it was Harry Potter’s house! Now the house is back up for sale, available to anyone who wishes to live at this special location.

The house was built on a private road in Leavesden in 2012, near the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. Note that no filming was done at this house. The Dursley house used in Philosopher’s Stone was actually a house in Bracknell on Picket Post Close, and for the remaining movies, a set was built at Leavesden Studios.

Both the Hussain children, Zaine, 15, and Mariyah, 10, are huge fans of Harry Potter and often invite their friends to take pictures and visit the Studio Tour. However, the private road does not appear on any maps, and not many people know that it’s there. Sounds like some other magical buildings we could name!

Of selling the house, Mrs. Hussain said, “My kids are so sad to be leaving, but it’s really nice to be able to say that we once lived here. It’s been a very special time.”
