The Enchanting Victorian Home in Practical Magic

By Decorology @decorology_blog
I own the movie Practical Magic, I like the story, but mostly THE HOUSE.  If you haven't seen it, these pics will convince you to grab a copy and watch it ASAP. The house is truly magical.

The house, which was actually built on a platform because the site is a protected Indian burial ground, and no digging is allowed. The house is empty on the inside, and was taken down after filming. The interior was all sets in LA. Though the book takes place in New England, the house was built in San Juan Park in Washington, where the weather is better for filming.

What do you think of the house? If you've seen the movie/read the book, do you think the house was a successful interpretation of the Owen sister's sanctuary?
