JK Rowling's Edinburgh house sells for more than USD 3.6m
JK Rowling's house in Edinburgh, where she wrote four of the seven Harry Potter novels, has been sold for well above 3.6 million dollars.
According to People magazine, the house was sold for more than the asking after only three weeks on the market, the New York Daily News reported.
Rettie and Co., a Scottish real estate company, have confirmed the sale of the home to an anonymous Scottish businessman.
The 47-year-old author bought the Victorian home in 1999 and lived there for 10 years with her husband, Neil, and three children before moving to a 17th-century mansion, according to the Daily Mail.
The home has eight bedrooms and landscaped gardens.
Rowling originally owned only the top part of the home, but bought the rest of it and converted it into a single-family home after the Harry Potter series became a hit.
