4709 Hogwarts Castle is a Harry Potter set released in 2001. This set is the first version of Hogwarts released. As it is the first Harry Potter castle, in many ways it has set the standard for all the future Hogwarts releases. It introduced the roof tiles in Sand Green, and the Sand Green turrets have become a symbol of Hogwarts architecture.

Comprised of the Great Hall, Grand Staircase Tower, Owlery Tower, a gatehouse, a rowboat, owls in brown, grey, white, and black, a rat, and a bat, this version of the castle is based on its appearance in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The nine minifigures included are Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Draco Malfoy, Hagrid, Professor Dumbledore, Professor Snape, Peeves, and a Knight.

Description

The Castle

The castle is is made of up interconnecting towers. These are the Great Hall, the Owlery Tower, and Grand Staircase Tower. Also included is the gatehouse.

Gatehouse

The gatehouse is a tower on a rocky outcrop that the first years ride through on the Black Lake in rowboats when they arrive at the school.

Gryffindor Tower

The Gryffindor Tower top floor is a poseable telescope for studying astronomy and a blue book (with a transparent spell tile inside). The next floor down in a box with two potions on it that is lifted up when the lever from the floor below is pulled. The floor below has a revolving entrance to the Gryffindor common room with a stickered portrait of the Fat Lady. As mentioned above, there is a lever on this floor that pulls a chain that opens the box on the floor above. In the Gryffindor common room, there is a Knight with a sword and oval-shaped Gryffindor Shield which can be turned to reveal a jewel.There is also a balcony connected to the common room. The floor below (which can be reached by a spiral staircase) is the Restricted Section of the library.

Owlery Tower

The bottom floor of the owlery tower has a rotating fire place. The top of the tower is removable and two owls can be perched.

Great Hall

The Great Hall is the biggest single room in this set, but contains only one table and Dumbledore's seat (which can be lifted up to reveal a secret compartment), and a fireplace. It has a hinged chimney breast that reveals Peeves, and a crystal ball in the rafters and a messanine level for minifigures. Noticeably, the roof is plastic-laminated paper. The ceiling is decorated with a double-sided Gryffindor or a Slytherin banner, the player can switch between the two in order to recreate the End-of-Term Feast from the first film. There are goblets and a letter delievered by owl on the table and lion-shaped bricks for the architecture of the hall.
