A Harry Potter-inspired flat in the heart of Scotland’s capital has hit the market for £315,000.
The two bedroom property is located in the Canongate area of Edinburgh and only just went up for sale yesterday.
Set in the city where author JK Rowling began writing the hit fantasy novels, the unique flat is filled to the brim with enchanting décor.
The master bedroom has been fitted out like a Gryffindor dorm room, complete with a four-poster bed and candles that appear like they’re floating.
The rare property also boasts a second smaller double bedroom that has been decorated like a carriage from the Hogwarts Express.
A cozy-looking living room is decked out similar to the Gryffindor common room, while the hallway is covered in portrait wallpaper.
The kitchen carries on the theme with a mural featuring a Dumbledore-like figure, a dragon and a tree that resembles the magical Whomping Willow plant from the books.
A white owl resembling Harry’s trusty pet, Hedwig, has also been hung up on the wall in a final node to the fictional series.
Keys and various other wizardly items are featured throughout the magical home which was decorated by Harry Potter fan and owner Yue Gao.
Estate agent Aberdein Considine listed the property yesterday for offers over £315,000, saying: “This magical, rare and unique third floor flat is sure to leave you spellbound.
“Beautifully upgraded and decorated by a renowned interior designer, this property’s magical theme is truly bewitching.
“The attention to detail of this stunning home will only be fully appreciated upon internal inspection and the property is ideally to be sold fully furnished and as seen.
“The theme of the flat is evident as soon as you walk through the front door with stylish wallpaper and furnishings which set the scene for the remainder of the property.
“There are three cupboards within the hallway providing excellent storage.
“The main bedroom also has two front facing windows along with a full wall of full height drapes, cupboard with hanging rail and a striking four poster bed.
“Bedroom two has been designed to replicate a train cabin with a built-in bed and built-in cupboard.”
Social media users were impressed with the property when the agent teased several images earlier this month.
Carrie-ann Holland said: “Found our next home.
“Wonder if there’s a cupboard under the stairs for the wee boy?”
Sarah Davidson said: “Cancel the new house, this is what you want.”
Laura Jaffray said: “Is it Harry Potter’s actual house?”
And Victoria Slater added: “Accio magical apartment.
“I need this in my life.”
Harry Potter is a series of seven fantasy novels which were written by JK Rowling.
The first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was released in June 1997 and followed the lives of Harry himself and his friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
Rowling made the Elephant House Cafe in Edinburgh famous after it was revealed that she wrote the first book there in 1995 and 1996.
Harry Potter was turned into a movie series in 2001, which ended in 2011.
Since then there have been two spin-off movies in the Fantastic Beasts series.
The books have sold more than 400 million copies worldwide and been translated into more than 60 languages.
