Heads up, Potterheads: the De Vere House, aka Harry Potter’s childhood home before he was torn apart from his parents by Lord Voldemort, is on the market for roughly 1 million pounds, or $1.3 million!
The house was featured in Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part one, where Harry’s parents were killed by You-Know-Who. Of course, those who have read the books know that the Potter residence is located in Godric’s Hollow, a wizarding village that housed the likes of Albus Dumbledore.
The six-bedroom house, in real life however, is actually located in Lavenham, Suffolk, England.
Although we know James Potter’s family to be pretty loaded — Harry’s vault in Gringotts will prove that! — as it turns out, the de Vere family, who owned the property from the 14th to the 17th century, were the richest family in England at the time after the king.
According to the listing, the house has several entertaining spaces including a reception hall, drawing room, sitting room, dining room and two kitchens. The home’s backyard also includes a garden, an outdoor dining terrace, an old stable, garden stores, and kitchen garden.
