Now even muggles can live at Hogwarts!

One of the locations used for filming the Harry Potter movie series, Royal Connaught Park has been converted into luxury apartments.

“The former private school was in a terrible state of repair,” Caroline Comer marketing director for London developer Comer Homes tells PEOPLE. “Most buildings were derelict and the few that were in use were not maintained very well.”

The Victorian gothic buildings—which were used in the films as Hogwarts’ Great Hall and Dumbledore’s magical office—went through five years of renovations.

“Stonemasons carefully restored and replicated the beautiful archways while glaziers set to work on the two story high stained glass windows,” says Comer. “Joiners painstakingly stripped back decades of paint to reveal exquisite wood paneling.”

But not everything has changed. The room that doubled as the Great Hall remains essentially the same and is available for use as a shared space.

The development, with homes selling from $500,000 to $3.8 million, includes 100 acres of private parkland, a swimming pool, and a health and fitness club.

“The homes they created are every bit as magical as Hogwarts itself,” says Comer.
