You can now buy the real 'Harry Potter' Privet Drive house

Consider this the ultimate collectible for Harry Potter fans.

The real life house used as the setting for 4 Privet Drive in the first Potter film has come on the market in Martins Heron in Berkshire, England.

The actual address is known as Picket Post Close - which, to be fair, sounds equally Potterian as Privet Drive - and was used as the home of Harry's vile Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia Dursley, as well as their obnoxious son Dudley.

Orphan Harry, of course, lived in a tiny cupboard under the stairs in the house - that is, until he discovers his wizarding destiny and sets off for Hogwarts.

The house only featured in the debut Potter film, Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone, and then a specially-built replica was built in a movie studio for the remaining films.

It's currently listed on the site of real estate agent Chancellors, and is described as being "situated in a quiet cul-de-sac location, this detached property has recently undergone complete renovation to an extremely high standard".

Notably, it's listed as having three bedrooms and a cloakroom - which is presumably Harry's old room.

It has been totally renovated and modernised, and you can check out its full spec here.
