Shakespeare purchases a new home
William Shakespeare's new house,
Stratford-upon-AvonMay: William purchases his own house, New Place, Church Lane in Stratford-upon-Avon, one of the largest properties in town. The late-fifteenth-century half-timbered home was semi-derelict, but enjoyed a frontage of 60 feet, which included 5 bay windows. Other notable features to the property were its well, 10 fireplaces, and 180-foot-long garden.
The house probably cost him around £120.00 (approximately $213.00).
