Get Your Bids In Because Harry Potter's House Is Up For Sale

Harry Potter's on-screen home has gone up for sale, and we suddenly feel our current homes are lacking a bit of magic, don't you?

It's been 20 years since the wizarding phenomenom hit our screens, and De Vere House is sure to make you feel extremely nostalgic, as it was the location where the young wizard's parents, James and Lily, were brutally killed by Voldemort in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part One.

The famous abode is looking for a brand new owner, and we're sure Potter fans worldwide will be bidding high to live out their wizarding dreams.

As the spot where the world's most famous wizard was given his iconic scar, we have a feeling it won't hang around for long.

In the film, the 16th Century building was based in fictional Godric's Hollow, but in real life it can be found in leafy Lavenham, Suffolk.

With six bedrooms, there's enough space to hold your very own Quidditch tournament, and find space for a 'common room' for each house - if that kind of thing tickles your Golden Snitch, of course.


Not to mention, there's most likely enough room to throw a feast fit for a king (or wizard), in the style of the Great Hall.

We have to admit we are pretty impressed by the traditional luxury of the Potter pad. The bedroom is decked out with a four-poster bed and some swanky sofa stuff.

The whole house looks epic. Just look at it...

If you're already envisioning you and your pals reenacting some of the scenes from the Pottering world, we should probably pre-warn you that it doesn't come cheap.

At a whopping £995,000, you should definitely have a good think about whether the novelty of living in a fictional dream home is worth it (who are we kidding?).

This isn't the first time the house has been on the market, though, as it was previously listed for sale at a slightly lower asking price of £950,000 in 2012.

Given the fact it's haunted by the likes of James and Lily Potter, it may come as no surprise to find the iconic home up for sale once again.

However, if you're happy to live alongside the ghosts of the wizarding past, then by all means go ahead.
