<p>Harry Potter fans can go on a magical city break of their&nbsp;dreams after a homeowner turned her terraced house into a wizard-themed Airbnb.</p><p>Hannah Chapman, 29, spent three months renovating the £232,000 two-bed property in York with an interior featuring levitating candles, a potion cabinet, and a cauldron.</p><p>From £198 a night, visitors can sleep in a set of bunk beds, just like those in Hogwarts boarding houses, which are large enough to fit adults.</p><p>And Harry Potter fans may find the bathroom has a distinctly “Slytherin” feel, with green tiling and a metallic snake weaving its way up the sink.</p><p>For the warm summer evenings, guests can also retire to the courtyard, where there is a chiminea fire pit to sit around and tell spooky stories.</p><p>Hannah, who spent £40,000 converting the house, said it offers guests an “escape from reality”.</p><p>She said: "Some people might find it a little spooky if they come to stay, but the house generally gives a warm and comfortable feel. </p><p>“There’s no dark magic. We’ve only got friendly love potions in there – so nothing bad.</p><p>“And if you’re a Harry Potter fan in particular, or if you like that sort of thing, then you’ll just find it very cosy.”</p><p>The designer had ambitions to embark on the project several years ago after spending her childhood consumed by magical stories - from Hocus Pocus to Harry Potter.</p><p>And when she finally got her hands on the keys to the late 1800s property in York, she stripped it back to reveal its “beautiful” original features.</p><p>Hannah said some guests might find the property a little “spooky” but added there was no “dark magic” to be found in the gothic styled terrace.</p><p>Hannah moved to York in her 20s to study at Northern College of Costume, and had later hatched a plan to one day create a magic-themed home.</p><p>Harry Potter fans will also delight at the snug, located just below the staircase, which is equipped with its own potion cabinet and a cauldron.</p><p>She said: “I’ve always grown up with Harry Potter, Hocus Pocus, The Adams Family, and I’ve always been interested in the magical side of things. </p><p>“And I just wanted to create something unique that reflected York quite well, because the city has quite a lot of history, and lots to do with Witchcraft as well.<br></p><p>“Nearly everything – 85 per cent of the contents of the property – was sourced from charity shops, recycling centres, eBay, and Facebook marketing groups.”<br></p>
