"What is this place?"
"Safehouse?"
"Let's hope."
Thor, Tony Stark and Clint Barton[src]

Clint Barton's Homestead is a farmhouse owned by Clint Barton in Missouri. The residence is implied to be very isolated from civilization and located off-the-grid. Combined with Barton's family being kept off the records, this enables him and his wife, Laura Barton, to peacefully live and raise their children here while keeping out of the public eye.

History

Off the Records

"Fury helped me set this up when I joined. He kept it off S.H.I.E.L.D.’s files."
Clint Barton[src]

When Clint Barton was recruited into S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury made sure his family's existence would be kept secret, setting up the farmhouse as a secure, isolated place where they could live in safety, located in Missouri. Its inhabitants include Barton, his wife Laura, and his two children, Cooper and Lila. The only other person to know of this arrangement was Barton's partner and best friend, Natasha Romanoff.[1]

After the Avengers' loss to Ultron, nightmares from Scarlet Witch, and an outbreak of the Hulk, Clint Barton decided to take the team to his home, where they could lay low and collect themselves. Clint landed the Quinjet outside the house, which the team thought was a safe house, as they made their way towards it.

When they entered, they discovered Clint being greeted by Laura, who was revealed as his wife that they were not aware of. Following this surprise, Cooper and Lila appeared, and Clint hugged his family, while everyone but Natasha Romanoff stood there, shocked. As Clint and Romanoff reunited with the family, Thor exited the house and went off to go find answers for the visions he saw earlier. The Avengers then got changed and each went and did their own thing.

Clint Barton reunites with Laura Barton

Clint talked with his wife, informing her of what had been happening with the team and Ultron, having been the only one not to be affected by Scarlet Witch. They also discussed Romanoff and Bruce Banner's relationship, as well as Clint's place on the Avengers. Clint then went to do some woodworking with his children outside.

As Banner got out of the shower, he found Romanoff waiting in the other room. The two revealed to each other their darkness within them, both seeing themselves as monsters. They then discussed being together and leaving everything behind. However, Banner explained to Romanoff that he could not have a normal life, not like Clint, as he gestured to the home environment.

Steve Rogers and Tony Stark argue

Meanwhile, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers went to chop wood outside as they recovered, where they discussed the future of the team after Scarlet Witch showed them something about their past, future, or dark side. When they started arguing, they were interrupted by Laura who asked if Stark could fix their tractor, so he left Rogers to help her.

That night, Fury talked with the Avengers, discussing the ongoing events, and how the Avengers needed to act to achieve victory. They were able to realize Ultron's plan, and the team headed out to stop him. Clint promised Laura that this would be his final mission, and the flew away in the Quinjet.

Clint Barton returns home to his family

After Ultron's defeat, Barton retired from the Avengers and went to be with his family, now with a new member being born shortly after.[1] When Clint went to assist Captain America in 2016 and was imprisoned and eventually freed from the Raft[2], Clint decided to make a deal with the government to be put under house arrest, so he could be with his family, rather than a prison.[3]

However, he was brought back to the present seconds before he could.[4]
