The Harry Potter films are full of memorable locations, from the Great Hall at Hogwarts to the Leaky Cauldron to the Chamber of Secrets. Thanks to the theme parks and studio tours that have grown out of the film, you can visit the constructed versions of many of these locales yourself, but some of the Potter locations are actually real places. One of those is the house where Harry spent the first months of his life, and the house where his parents — Lily and James — were murdered by Voldemort. Now, you can not only visit this place. You can buy it.

The Godric's Hollow house — located in the English village of Lavenham — was just put up for sale through agents at Carter Jonas, according to Entertainment Weekly. Known in real life as the De Vere House, it was used as a location in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1. In a very moving scene, Harry and Hermione visit the house, and Harry realizes it's the place where his parents died, a place he hasn't been back to since he was an infant. Though effects were used to make it appear partially destroyed in the film, it's still very much intact, and the historic home is now available to purchase for about $1.3 Million.


It's called the De Vere House because, from the 14th to the 17th century, it was the home of the De Vere family, who were at one point second in wealth only to the British royals.

If you're worried about getting your money's worth, you apparently shouldn't be: The house has six bedrooms, two kitchens, a sitting room, a dining room, a reception hall, and a drawing room. So, there's plenty of room for displaying all of your collectible Harry Potter wands.
