You can now own Harry Potter‘s childhood home in Goodric’s Hollow: a small, fictional village that is located in the south west region of England. The tiny village only consists of some houses, a few stores, and a church. There is also the graveyard that Harry and Hermione visit in 1997. Godric’s Hollow is a special place in the Harry Potter series as it is where Harry Potter himself was born. His parents inhabited a cottage within the village. Dumbledore’s family also had a home in Godric’s Hollow as well.
Harry and Hermione stumble upon Potter cottage in Godric’s Hollow during Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. The house that was used is a real house from a village called Lavenham, which is actually north of London. In medieval times, the house was supposedly owned by the De Vere family, who were known for being almost as wealthy as the royal family. However, the house has had different owners throughout the years and it’s up for sale once again.
EW has confirmed that the cottage used as Harry Potter’s childhood home in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is now up for sale. The house is on the market for $1.3 million. The home includes six bedrooms, two kitchens, and a drawing room.
There’s no news yet if the home holds anything interesting when it comes to Harry Potter memorabilia (although, the home within itself is pretty much all the memorabilia you need). The town is different than Godric’s Hollow too. There’s no graveyard with Lily and James Potters’ tombstones and there’s no Bathilda Bagshot. There is, however, a ton of history. The home was built in the 14th century, so this is much more of a historical location than anything else.
This isn’t the first Harry Potter home to be put on the market. The Dursley’s 4 Privet Drive went up for sale about a year ago. It had a hefty price tag of a bit over half a million dollars. Of course, the real house isn’t on Privet Drive and is instead located at 12 Picket Post Close in a town outside of London. The Potter cottage being sold off isn’t surprising, now that Privet Drive is gone too. Everyone’s childhood is withering away as everything that is Harry Potter is being sold off and put out for pasture. Everyone seems to be moving on, including the owners of these homes who lent their houses out for the Harry Potter series.
Harry Potter (the phenomenon) isn’t gone yet though. While Potter cottage in Godric’s Hollow might be preparing to be sold off, the magic won’t be disappearing anytime soon. Though the home should be best known for its history, its more known for its use in Harry Potter. That pretty much says it all.
