Home of Winnie the Pooh Creator A.A. Milne for Sale in England
It may not be in Hundred Acre Wood, but Cotchford Farm should suffice for fans of Winnie the Pooh. Now for sale, the farmhouse in East Sussex, England is where A.A. Milne wrote the beloved children’s stories.
Originally built in the 16th century, Milne purchased the home in 1924 and moved in a year later, after much-needed repairs, with his wife Daphne and son Christopher Robin (often called Billy). His son’s stuffed animals served as the inspiration for Milne’s characters, while the farmhouse and its bucolic surroundings were the sources for his setting.
Featuring six bedrooms (with exposed wood-beam ceilings) and five bathrooms, Cotchford Farm has a modern kitchen, oak-paneled dining room, and two-level drawing room with a fireplace and wood-burning stove for cold winter nights. Located in southeast England, the 3,779 square-foot home sits on a 9.5-acre lot that’s also home to two gardens, an apple orchard, a fish pond, and a pool with a pool house close by.
With an asking price of $2.38 million, Cotchford Farm is listed with Savills. For more information, contact real estate agent Amanda Wyatt here.
