'Harry Potter' Author J.K. Rowling to Build Own Hagrid's Hut?
The Western Daily Press reported that, like Hagrid's gamekeeper hut, the new, circular structure will open to the front, and have a stone bench and slate roof. It will be situated on the edge of a forest on Rowling's 19th century, 162-acre Killiechassie Estate, located on the upper reaches of Scotland's River Tay.
The building application was recently approved by a planning council that stipulated that no trees can be damaged or cut down during construction.
In 2012, Rowling sold another home that she owned in Scotland, a sprawling eight-bedroom Victorian house -- also constructed of stone -- in the capital of Edinburgh, where she lived with her husband and children while writing many of the Potter books.
It reportedly sold in three weeks after being listed for $3.7 million.
