Harry Potter’s birthplace is still up for sale


If you want to own a piece of Harry Potter history, you’ll want to look at Lavenham, Suffolk. Harry Potter’s birthplace remains up for sale. It’ll only set you back £1 million.

Harry Potter’s birthplace has been up for sale for more than a year. That is, the house that was used to film the character’s birthplace. Lavenham’s De Vere House in Suffolk was used as the Potter family home, which housed the horrible deaths of James and Lily Potter, leaving Harry an orphan.

The house will set you back £950,000, which is down from the £995,000 price tag it originally had when it went up for sale last summer. While that is out of reach for many, the price tag reflects both the Harry Potter connection and the house that is rich in history.

De Vere House, also known as Oxford House over the years, is one of the oldest houses in Britain. It’s in a part of the country that has many beautiful period homes, all now listed. This means there are some limitations on what can and can’t be done to the houses, both inside and out, and often makes them harder to sell.

However, there is something out there for everyone. In this case, it requires a custodian. Having someone who is a Potterhead could also certainly be beneficial. After all, we’re going to care for Harry Potter’s birthplace, right?

The timber-frame fireplace is still intact, along with the beautiful stone staircase. It’s a shame it hasn’t found the perfect buyer just yet.
