A ‘Harry Potter’ superfan designed a luxury apartment that will make you feel like you’re at Hogwarts — take a look inside

  • Canongate Luxury Apartment, located in Edinburgh, Scotland, pays homage to the magical world of “Harry Potter.”
  • Created by superfan Yue Gao, the apartment features a Gryffindor-inspired master bedroom and living room, along with a second bedroom that looks like a carriage from the Hogwarts Express.
  • The apartment also includes a fully stocked kitchen and beautiful bathroom.
  • Visitors will even find two pieces of furniture that once belonged to J.K. Rowling.

Fans hoping to relive the magic of the “Harry Potter” series may want to start in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The city, which famously inspired J.K. Rowling to start writing about the Boy Who Lived, is now home to an apartment that looks like it was plucked straight out of Hogwarts.

Created by “Harry Potter” superfan Yue Gao, Canongate Luxury Apartment features a Gryffindor-inspired master bedroom and a second bedroom that looks like a carriage from the Hogwarts Express. The apartment even includes a few pieces of furniture that once belonged to Rowling herself. 

Gao, who travels the world collecting unique “pieces of history,” told South West News Service (SWNS) that she “put [her] heart into” restoring the historic building over the course of seven months. 

“I didn’t want to turn it into a cheap copy of the film, so it’s more like an homage from a huge fan rather than [a] copy of the movie,” she said to SWNS. “I think this house holds collected memories of a whole generation of people who grew up watching Harry Potter.”

Take a look inside the magical apartment below.

In the master bedroom, visitors will find a king-size four-poster bed with custom hanging red-and-gold curtains, inspired by Gryffindor’s iconic house colors.

The living room pays homage to the Gryffindor common room at Hogwarts. It features a rustic stone wall, a fireplace, and a double sofa bed.

The apartment includes a mirror that once belonged to J.K. Rowling. “She wanted to recycle her old hand railings so they cut them into a mirror frame,” Gao told SWNS.

The apartment also has an antique desk that Gao acquired from a furniture restorer, whose son attended the same school as Rowling’s daughter.

As visitors walk through the hallways, they’ll notice the wallpaper is covered in framed portraits and photos, similar to the moving pictures on the walls at Hogwarts.

The cozy second bedroom was designed to feel like a carriage from the Hogwarts Express.

Visitors don’t even have to leave the apartment for meals. The kitchen comes with a washer-dryer, refrigerator, microwave, kettle, toaster, Nespresso coffee machine, electric/gas ovens, and basic kitchen utensils.
