Help me if you can I’ve got to get/ back to the house at Pooh corner by one./ You’d be surprised there’s so much to be done,/ count all the bees in the hive,/ chase all the clouds from the sky./ Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh.
Author A.A. Milne’s Cotchford Farm, the setting for Milne to write the children’s stories of Christopher Robin (named after his son) and Winnie the Pooh, has come up for sale in East Sussex, England for �2,000,000 (about 3.2 million dollars).
Places in the books like the 100-acre wood, Poohsticks Bridge and Pooh Corner are all based on nearby locations. But that is not the only claim to fame of the property. In later years, musician Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones resided in the house until his death in 1969.
This is the first time in over 40 years the property has been for sale. It boasts a study, split-level drawing room, oak-paneled dining room, six bedrooms, three bathrooms and a heated pool. There are also beautiful grounds and gardens, bringing the property’s total area to 9.5 acres.
