An impressive mansion dubbed a “mini Hogwarts” for its resemblance to the Harry Potter wizarding school is on the market in Bristol for £2.7 million. With leafy grounds, a library, turrets and a Great Hall, this Grade II listed property could be a dream home for Potter fans.
The grand 9 bedroom, 8 reception room country estate named Barrow Court has a rich history too. After the dissolution of the monasteries in 1536, King Henry VIII granted the property to John Drew of Bristol.
Even for non-Potter fans, Barrow Court is filled with impressive period features like decorative friezes, ornate fireplaces, graceful plasterwork and a Jacobean staircase. The formal Great Hall boasts a Corinthian pillar fireplace with a coat of arms.
For hardcore Potterheads, the Great Hall would be perfect for themed parties and feasts. While on the outskirts of Bristol, Barrow Court is near a charming village green and pubs. Though listed at £2.7 million, there is an annual service fee of over £16,000 as it is leasehold. Still, this “mini Hogwarts” would be a magical dream home for any Harry Potter fan.
However, for die-hard Potter fans, the property’s Great Hall would be ideal for themed gatherings (imagine candle-lit dinners and long tables of food).
Barrow Court is located on the outskirts of Bristol, 6.5 miles from the city centre, although it has a nice village green and two pubs nearby.
It’s also worth pointing out that while the home is up for £2.7million, it is leasehold – which means there’s an annual service fee of £16,654.
