Your next home could be at the birthplace of property rights.

A gated community of 59 luxury homes in Surrey, England has hit the market, located on the site where King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215, according to Mansion Global. The development spans 57 acres across the village of Englefield Green and Runnymede, the riverside site where King John agreed to the Magna Carta terms with a group of rebel barons.

The Magna Carta is widely considered to be one of the founding documents of modern democracy and established that no one, monarchs included, is above the law, and that people’s rights include not having their property taken away.

The luxury project is now known as Magna Carta Park, and the first homes to hit the market range from about $1 million to $4 million. Knight Frank and Savills are co-marketing the properties, according to Mansion Global.

Developers are working on 23 more homes and 10 townhouses, and homes will range in size from one to five bedrooms. [Mansion Global] – Eddie Small
