Pooh Bear's Creator & A Rock Star Slept (& Died) Here!
We're kicking off Friday with a home that's historic in both literature and rock and roll: Cotchford Farm, the English country home that inspired A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh books and, later, where the Rolling Stones' Brian Jones lived and died. Milne bought the 9.5 acre East Sussex property in 1925 and much of the books' famous locations like Poohsticks Bridge and Pooh Corner are based on nearby sites. Brian Jones moved here in 1968 and drowned in the pool following a night of drinking and drugging in July of 1969. Located about an hour from London, the 6 bed/3 bath home has a wealth of vintage details like exposed timbers, beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplace, polished brick floors, and oak paneling. The $3.1 million price tag includes the infamous pool, plus patios, terraces, formal gardens, and tiered lawns. Truly lovely. For more info/pics, go here
