House where J.K. Rowling wrote a few 'Harry Potter' books up for sale



 If you're interested in buying what will surely end up as a marquee stop on future literary tours, J.K. Rowling has put up for sale the house in Ediburgh, Scotland, in which she wrote several of her Harry Potter novels. It will no doubt share future significance with the fourth floor cubicle from which The Juice* writes five days a week.

Don't think Rowling's house is some meager little shack, either; It's an eight-bedroom, 18th century Victorian being sold for $3.7 million, RadarOnline says. The selling agent describes it as "an exceptional detached family house standing within a large yet discreet landscaped and walled garden." It's in some hoity toity Edinburgh neighborhood, so you won't have to worry about the neighbors.

Rowling and her family long since moved out, so don't worry about how they're doing. Word is she came into some money and was able to afford slightly larger digs.
