listed house with literary and rock connection for sale
Crotchford Farm, Cotchford Lane, Hartfield, East Sussex, TN7 4DN
Guide price £2,000,000

AA Milne's House
Crotchford Farm is a delightful 16th century farmhouse nestled in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of Hartfield village with not one but two claims to fame.

This Grade II listed six bedroom home was once the home of children’s author A.A Milne and the property formed the backdrop of the tales of his son Christopher Robin, Pooh bear and all his friends. Outside, in the 10 acre grounds, there's evidence of the world famous children classic stories; nestled in the moss is a sundial with all of the Pooh characters and there's a touching statue of Christopher Robin.

The property was also once owned by Rolling Stone, Brian Jones who lived here until his death in 1969 and his presence can be seen in the panes of coloured glass he installed and a pink fluorescent light in one of the bathrooms.

Inside, the house is set over three floors and is full of character with an abundance of exposed timbers and beams, some oak frame mullioned windows, painted wooden drop latch doors, panelling, flagstone and polished brick flooring.

Outside there are mature, landscaped gardens, a heated swimming pool and a number of outbuildings. A stream runs along the southern wooded boundary and 'Pooh Sticks Bridge' is half a mile upstream for anyone interested in recreating the idyllic pooh sticks pastime.

This is a gorgeous property that is special in its own right, but two famous connections make it an undeniably unique property.
