The Hobbit-themed treehouse in South Dakota that we just showed you is one way that you can live in a real-life version of a fantasy universe. Here's another.
A 23-year-old Londoner named Alex Lomax claims to have been shown an actual cupboard-under-the-stairs with a bed, similar (but smaller) to the one that Harry Potter lived in before he found out he was a wizard, when she responded to a listing for a £500/month "single furnished room." The residents of the house who created the listing claim to be looking for an "open-minded ... person" and that they are "not really looking for somebody that just wants to stay in their room." The only way that could be worth it is if the rooms also comes with a real-life Hagrid to whisk you away on his flying motorcycle.
