Harry Potter fans are in for a magical treat as 4 Privet Drive – the home of Harry’s Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley Dursley in the famous films – has gone up for sale.

The home in Picket Post Close, Martins Heron – better known as the fictional 4 Privet Drive – is up for sale for £475,000 ($849,00 NZD)

Back in 2001, the house was picked out of hundreds around the UK to be the Dursleys' home in the very first film, .

However, logistical problems meant the actual house only ever featured in one of the films but the street was recreated in a studio for the later films including the final installments of the series Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows.

It’s not cheap, but as well as a small piece of Hollywood history you also get a completely refurbished home. The owners have done the whole thing up and are now hoping to sell. The house is being marketed by Chancellors in Bracknell.

So for your near half-a-million quid you get three bedrooms, a big family bathroom, a newly laid drive and a landscaped back garden with a large patio, reports.

The house in Bracknell wasn't the only location in the area used in the movie. Filming also took place at Swinley Forest.

Despite attempts to keep filming secret, 10-year-old Reuben Shields-Allen found a call sheet for ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' while out walking his dogs with his parents near the Look Out in June 2009.
