It is a place full of magic that it is now possible to acquire : the cottage of the Potter, where is born, Harry, is for sale for one million euros. And unlike the building of the saga of J. K. Rowling, the house is clearly visible including for mere mortals.
“In this place, on the night of 31 October 1981, Lily and James Potter lost their lives. Their son, Harry, remains the only wizard who ever survived the curse of Death. This house, invisible to the eyes of the Muggle, has been left in its ruined state as a monument to the memory of Potter and to recall the violence that has torn this family“. The sign planted in front of the house is gloomy. But for all the fans of the movies, the cottage of the Potter is also the place where their favorite hero has seen the light of day. A good reason for them to acquire.

So much so that the real property which served as the setting for the film Harry Potter and the Deathly hallows, is not at all in ruins, but all dapper instead. Unlike the fiction, it is not located in Godric”s Hollow but to Lavenham, a delightful little town to the east of Cambridge. To become owner of this beautiful building, it will be necessary all the same to spend€ 1.1 Million. But at this price, as defined in the estate agency Carter Jonas, you have a beautiful medieval building of Tudor style, with facades of half-timbered, massive fireplace and the many nooks and crannies. The two wings house, in fact, a large lounge, a dining room, five bedrooms, an attic and… two kitchens. The icing on the cake, the back overlooks a lush green garden of over 1,600 m2 on turf so british.
- Buy the childhood home of Harry Potter
In the past year, it is the agency Chancellors, which proposed to another house of the saga, that of the adoptive family to Harry Potter, the so-called “4 Privet Drive”. More modest, this house, of which the most famous piece is the closet under the stairs, was on sale for half the price of the cottage of the Potter, 552.000 €. The question is therefore the following : what amount would it pay to buy… the school of Hogwarts with his internship, his banquet hall and his countless secret rooms ? Mystery.
