Harry Potter’s childhood home is up for sale


There is great news for fans as the childhood home of Harry Potter is now on the market and up for sale.


The De Vere House, which featured in the seventh film of the series – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One – is now available to buy for nearly £1 million.


This building is the birthplace of Harry, and is the place where the young hero’s parents were murdered. It is situated in the quaint Suffolk village of Lavenham and poses as the fictional West Country village of Godric’s Hollow in the fantasy series.

The building will be short of suitors, despite its price tag, and  covers over 3,165 sq ft. including six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a stable. De Vere House will set you back £995,000.

The property is home to a beautiful garden with an outdoor terrace, also a living room and dining room fit for banquets

This is in stark contrast to the Dursley’s more modest home in Privet Drive – where Harry lived under the stairs for a time.

According to its previous owners, various shots were taken of the building and its surrounds that were then edited to create Godric’s Hollow.

The facade looks as it does in the film, therefore fans are expected to regularly flocking to the front door to catch a glimpse.

The doorway is the second most photographed one in the UK only after 10 Downing Street.

The property is currently listed on Rightmove and is being marketed by Carter Jonas where it has been described as ‘one of the most prestigious with its beautiful facade and significant period features throughout’.
