Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson have splashed out on homes in New York, the UK and the Alps, investing more than a third of their combined wealth in property.
The three have spent £24.5m of their collective £85m on luxury properties in recent years, according to analysis by property website PrimeLocation.com. But with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II breaking box office records – it raked in $480m worldwide in the opening weekend alone , according to Screen Daily – they could soon have more cash to spend.
Radcliffe, 21, has an £11.2m property portfolio, including three New York addresses. He has a £3.5m penthouse in TriBeCa, overlooking the Hudson river; a £4m townhouse in Greenwich Village, which he is renovating; and a £3m apartment in SoHo's Mercer Street, which he rents out for £3,000 a week. He also bought a £730,000 flat near his parents' home in Fulham.
Meanwhile, 22-year-old co-star Grint, aka Ron Weasley, has stayed close to his home village of Watton-at-Stone. He has been building a property portfolio in Hertfordshire, with a £5.4m manor set in 22 acres of grounds, a £3.35m house plus another £495,000 detached property – all mortgage-free.
