The fantastical property has also invited comparisons to Middle Earth.

After attempts to turn it into a brewery failed, the property dubbed Minneapolis' "Hogwarts House" is back on the market.

Brass Foundry Brewing Company had applied for a brewery and taproom license for 247 10th Ave. S. in downtown Minneapolis, in the shadows of U.S. Bank Stadium.

But the Star Tribune reports that it's scrapped that plan and is now seeking premises in Minnetonka, forcing its owner, the musician and restaurateur Jeff Arundel, to put it back on the market for a cool $2.995 million.

The house looks like it's from an alternate reality or movie set, and you can see every nook and cranny in this slideshow from Spacecrafting.

A cross between Harry Potter and Middle Earth

The property has been compared to a cross between The Lord of the Rings and Hogwarts from Harry Potter.

The house, which was built in 1911, has a Middle Earth motif that includes Gothic arches, elaborate staircases, massive fireplaces and stained glass. Take a virtual tour of the property here.

The house is nearly 4,500 square feet, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and a gated courtyard.

And it wouldn't be weird for the house to become something else. It was once a blacksmith shop and a mechanic's garage.

The house was last sold in 2002 for $1.1 million, according to Hennepin County Property Tax Records.
