The De Vere House

£1 Million Harry Potter House Won’t Sell and It’s Not Because of the Price

It ain’t a secret that Potterheads would love to live in the world of magic. Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, Hagrid’s Hut; any magic location is where it’s at for you witches and wizards. And how could I forget the home where Harry was born that made an appearance in The Deathly Hallows: Part One? Now it seems you could buy that house, if you have one million dollars and a whole lot of patience.

The beautiful medieval style home has been on the market for over six months and the Harry Potter fandom is to blame. Located in Lavenham, Suffolk (Godrick’s Hollow to magic folk), this home tends to draw the eyes of tourists and eager fans. Caroline Edwards of Carter Jonas Agents tells The Sun the struggle of the sale.
 
 
Whenever you drive through Lavenham you always see tourists taking selfies there… It could be a reason why it is taking a little time to sell it – something with that amount of fame attached to it is a bit of an anomaly… There are a lot of very passionate Harry Potter fans out there.

 

However, it’s not just the lingering crowds that’s putting off some buyers. “Another reason that it might not be selling is that it is heavily timber framed and a lot of people might not like that feature as it is so unique.” The De Vere House just doesn’t look quite like a contemporary home. Ornate stone carvings and deep rich woods are not everyone’s taste. Check out the interior:

This house looks rich because it was built for the rich, specifically the 12th Earl of Oxford John De Vere. Sounds really cool, if you can take living in the second most photographed house in Britain. I’ve seen this happen from movies like The Amityville Horror and The Goonies where the main house in the films were oversaturated with fans in real life. Now add this Harry Potter house to the list. Until someone buys it, it’s simply a breeding ground for fans and magic.
