Harry Potter's childhood home in Godric's Hollow is up for sale

You'll need a whole lot of muggle money to buy it

You've watched all the Harry Potter films so many times, you feel like your family practically belongs in the wizarding world – but seeing as most of us can't even afford to buy a doll's house these days, could you actually afford to live there?

Well, Harry Potter's home is up for sale – no, not the cupboard under the stairs, or Dudley's old room, but the house in Godric's Hollow where The Chosen One was born.

Back on the market, the De Vere House was famously used in the Harry Potter films to create Godric's Hollow, the home town of Albus Dumbledore and birth place of Harry, where his parents James and Lily were killed by He Who Must Not Be Named.

And the price is another thing that must not be named, because this Grade I listed building, located in Suffolk, England, and visited in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will knock you back a whopping £995,000 ($1,292,714). Dumbledore only knows how much that is in galleons, sickles and knuts.

The description on the estate agent's website says: "De Vere House is an outstanding Grade I listed property steeped in history and, more recently, made famous for its appearance in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

"Even though Lavenham is synonymous with fine timber-framed houses, De Vere House stands out as one of the most prestigious with its beautiful façade and significant period features throughout.

"The façade is jettied with exposed timbers, brick nogging (herringbone design), leaded mullions and ornate carved timbers. The front door of De Vere House is one of its most notable features and appears in numerous guide books and Treasures of Britain.

It continues: "Forming part of Godric's Hollow, De Vere House can be seen opposite a fictional graveyard with a Christmas tree in the window, with lights on and music emanating. Deservedly, De Vere House proudly stands as one of Lavenham's most prized properties to this day".
