For sale: Harry Potter's childhood home, yours for £1 million

Hannah Uttley

Calling all Harry Potter fans: if you’ve got a spare £1 million to spend then the house of your dreams could be yours.

The boy wizard’s childhood home, made famous for its appearance in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, has been put on the market for £995,000 by estate agent Carter Jonas.

Forming part of Godric’s Hollow – the home town of Albus Dumbledore – De Vere House in Lavenham, Suffolk, can be seen in part one of the last film in the Harry Potter franchise opposite a fictional graveyard with a Christmas tree in the window.

The property comes complete with significant Medieval and Tudor features throughout, including a massive timber frame, fireplaces, wall paintings and a rare stone spiral staircase with carved brick hardrail.

And the property isn’t only famous for its ties to Harry Potter, it takes its name from the De Vere family which were the second richest family in the Medieval times after the King and were responsible for creating much of Lavenham’s medieval grandeur.
