|Cotchford Farm in England served as the backdrop for the Winnie the Pooh stories. |
Christopher Robin Milne, the son of Winnie the Pooh creator A.A. Milne, grew up in this quaint brick manse in the English countryside. Christopher Robin inspired the young boy of the same name in Milne's iconic children's stories and, so too did the bucolic setting of the family home serve as the backdrop.
Known as Cotchford Farm, and on the market for the first time in more than 40 years, the Grade II listed estate spans 9.5 acres of lawns, forest, and streams. The six-bedroom main house, the quintessential English country house if there ever was one, is listed for $3.22 million.
|Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones lived and died in the house after Milne. |
There's more to the Milne house than just Pooh, as it was also later owned by Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, who died on the property.
