Harry Potter's 'birth house' listed at 1m pounds
London, Aug 30 (ANI): The 14th century cottage used as Harry Potter's birthplace in the boy wizard movie franchise is expected to sell for nearly 1 million pounds.
The grade I listed building called de Vere House in Lavenham, Suffolk, was used to create the fictional village of Godric's Hollow, in 'Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows Part One.'
It was featured as the birthplace of both Harry Potter and his wizarding mentor and headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, the Telegraph reported.
It was also where Harry's parents made their final stand before being slain by Lord Voldemort, immortalising the house as the backdrop where Harry received his characteristic scar.
Now, the three bedroom 14th century cottage, which includes a self catering wing, is on the market for 950,000 pounds.
Astonishingly, it has become one of the most photographed doorways in the UK, coming second only to number 10 Downing Street.
Inside, the beautiful medieval building includes a reception hall, drawing room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, laundry room, three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and an attic room.
The five star self-catering wing features a reading room, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, shower room and two double bedroom suites.
Guests who stay at the house can't resist watching clips of the famous Harry Potter movies to help make the magic feel more real.
"It's part of Godric's Hollow. The house can be seen opposite the graveyard, with a Christmas tree in the window, the lights on and music coming out of it," current owner of the house Jane Ranzetta said.
Her husband Tony Ranzetta said: "It was really quite extraordinary watching both the filming and then the end result on screen.
Historians believe that De Vere House's extraordinary past even includes a visit from King Henry VII in 1498. (ANI)
