The street in Bracknell was turned into Privet Drive

To Potter fans, Privet Drive is the most famous street in the world.

It's where Harry Potter grew up and has to spend his holidays from Hogwarts with the despicable Dursleys.

And now one lucky fan could end up living there - well, sort of.

Philosopher's Stone

The real house used to film at number four Privet Drive in the first Potter movie is up for sale.

It's really a street in Bracknell, Berkshire in south-east England.

Film crews took over the street for a while in 2001 while they filmed Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone there.

Owls

The street was filled with cameras, owls, wizards - you name it!

But now the owner of the real 'Privet Drive' house wants to sell it.

It's on the market for 250,000 and will be auctioned on July 22.
