It is a line that so many people know so well: "Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much." This is the opening line to "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" and it introduces readers to the place where we meet Harry Potter.

If you have $620,000 to spend, the house might be yours.

In the movies and books, the home belongs to the evil aunt and uncle of Harry, Vernon and Petunia Dursley. Potter spends 11 years of his life there, living in a cupboard under the stairs after he was left on their doorstep as a baby.

In the real world, the address is 12 Picket Post Close. It is in a quiet suburban town in Berkshire, about 25 miles west of London.

The three bedroom home has a backyard and a garage. It is on sale for $620,000, which is a comparable price to similar properties in the area. It might seem expensive, but it is in a location where property costs have soared, according to CNN.

It was last sold for 249,000 pounds in 2003 ($325,000), at the height of global Harry Potter mania.

The inside doesn't look much like it did in the movie, having been modernized by the latest tenant.
