Harry Potter-inspired Diagon Alley apartment for sale and it even has a hidden room

A Harry Potter-themed apartment with a hidden room has been on the market for £ 210,000.

The one-bed property, located in the heart of Edinburgh‘s Grassmarket, was previously used as a short-term vacation rental for the millions of visitors who flock to Victoria Street each year – believed to have inspired JK Rowling’s Diagon Alley.

Located just minutes from Edinburgh’s main attractions, the apartment is prime real estate, adjacent to several of the cafes where the author wrote the first chapters of the book franchise.

Owners will also have Edinburgh Castle on their doorstep, which would have served as inspiration for Hogwarts.

There are a lot of magical features

The front door of the apartment opens into a hallway which contains a secret storage space disguised by a long mirror (which looks like the one in the hall on request).

The impressive-sized living space and modern kitchen-diner provide plenty of natural light, and some wallpapers fans of the franchise will recognize are similar to those in the magical photos hung in the halls of Hogwarts.

A woodland-themed bedroom, tucked behind a fantastically hidden library door, helps make it seem like you’re in the Forbidden Forest – although there are luckily no giant spiders named Aragog in sight.

A compact bathroom, with a double shower and rustic copper flooring, gives the newly renovated apartment a warm and eclectic feel that any Weasley would be proud of.

Other features on the block include a wizard’s chest, references to Gringott Bank, ancient books, and a Diagon Alley sign.

Despite its bustling location, the property’s newly installed double-glazed and slim-framed windows with handmade shutters are sure to keep out loud moaning myrtles or dementor-like drafts.

While the apartment was previously available for rent on Airbnb and was a hit with fans, it is now available for purchase.
