J.K. Rowling to Build Private Hogwarts Replica Playground For Her Kids

By Elizabeth Lancaster @lizzydl

Potterheads everywhere are about to get very jealous of some little kids.

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling is building a private Hogwarts playground for her kids. As the creator of this intricate world, Rowling’s 40-foot adventure playground is sure to not only include all sorts of sophisticated details, but hold design much nearer and dearer to her vision of Hogwarts.

The playground replication of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry will be built in the backyard of her Edinburgh, Scotland, castle mansion for a whopping $232,919. But being worth a reported $869.5 million herself, this venture won’t exactly break the bank.

Fortunately for Rowling and her children, the project does not seem to be an inconvenience for neighbors even though it is so large that Rowling needed a planning permit for construction. The author is, unsurprisingly, very well-liked in the neighborhood, with one neighbor telling MailOnline (via Contact Music), “Nobody around here is going to make a fuss about the tree houses for her children. It’s her cash, she can do what she wants with it.”

Each of Rowling’s two children will get their own two-story tree house, which are being custom built by luxury tree house makers Blue Forest UK.

We didn’t know it could get better than the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but boy were we wrong!
