It may not be Hogwarts, but it carries a pedigree – and a palatial price tag.
The Edinburgh house where J.K. Rowling wrote four of her seven Harry Potter novels has been sold for well over $3.6 million.
The 19th-century Victorian mansion – which includes eight bedrooms, a walled garden and a detached office in the back where Rowling reportedly worked – went to an anonymous Scottish businessman, James Whitson, the real-estate agent who dealt with the property, confirms to PEOPLE.
Whitson told the Scotsman newspaper: "This was an iconic house in Edinburgh. … To be honest, it was a refreshing change to the normal house. There was a bit of magic involved, which was quite fun to deal with."
