J.K. Rowling Lists Farmhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland, for $3.7 Million (House of the Day)

JK Rowling lists Scottish farmhouse home

J.K. Rowling's farmhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland, may have been the place where she found inspiration to write many of her wildly popular "Harry Potter" novels, but since that chapter of her life is over, she won't be needing the house anymore.

Rowling has put the monstrous eight-bedroom Victorian estate on the market for $3.7 million. She already owns another house in the city (along with other properties in Scotland and London), so it shouldn't be a problem for her to create a "Casual Vacancy" in the manse.

According to the listing, the home is "an exceptional detached family house standing within a large yet discreet landscaped and walled garden." The 6,847-square-foot home, built around 1880, has been redesigned to contain modern fixtures while retaining its period features. The property also boasts a detached split-level office complete with kitchen and shower room, a summer house, "various outhouses" and a double garage.

Unfortunately, as noted by Curbed, the home contains zero secret passageways or magic rooms. We'd like to think that Curbed just hasn't found them yet.

James Whitson of Rettie has the listing.
