HARRY POTTER AUTHOR J.K. ROWLING OWNS HISTORIC GEORGIAN COUNTRY ESTATE BUILT IN 1865.
Along with a house in Kensington and a villa in Edinburgh, Rowling owns a lovely estate about 90 minutes from Edinburgh in Perthshire, Scotland, with rolling hillsides, wooded glens, vast farms and dramatic mountains, the perfect setting for the next Harry Potter novel. The estate is on the banks of the River Tay near Aberfeldy. Ten years ago Rowling was a struggling single Mom on wlfare, and Harry Potter, friends and fiends, have brought her a long, long way, and deservedly so. The series has sold over 4,000,000 copies. She now ranks in the Sunday Times Rich List (Lodon) as the 12th richest woman in Britain. Forbes ranked her as the 48th most powerful celebrity of 2007. Tme Magazine named her its 2007 Person of the Year, for the social, moral and political inspiration she has given her fandom. The Potter series are the fastest selling books in history, transdlated into 65 languages, and the brand is worth $15-BB
