This house was, formerly, a temporary residence of Horace Slughorn's. During his time on the run from the Death Eaters in the mid-1990s, Slughorn abandoned his house and went into a secluded lifestyle, moving from one Muggle house to the next, taking along some of his furniture (his grand piano, in the very least). Ambrosius Flume used to send a hamper of crystallised pineapple to Slughorn's house each birthday, as a thank to him for in Ambrosius' school years introducing him to Ciceron Harkiss, who gave Flume his first job.
Behind the scenes
- In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince the line about the house is only seen on the original script due to a mistake that said that Flume send Slughorn a hamper of chocolate each birthday. It was cut out because it contradicts the novel in which Slughorn likes crystallised pineapple, and if kept in the film it would ruin later events seen in a memory of Slughorn's in which Tom Riddle gave crystallised pineapple to Slughorn during a Slug Club dinner.
