From the Zillow listing:

 

The old time charm of this farmhouse is undeniable. The original home was built pre civil war. The story is a Doctor lived here and would take in wounded soldiers, women and children abandoned in war. Later this home was occupied by the Reeves family rich in history in this county as well. It has since been a bed and breakfast and a winery. It is truly a place to step back in time and welcome all who pass by. This home offers 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The Master walks out on to its very own screen porch providing a place to relax and listen to the mountain stream. This home has hardwood floors thru out and some pretty amazing trim detail. Just being in this house, sitting or swinging on one of the beautiful porches while looking out at the mountains is vacation. This is a Must see!   Tax records for this house is 1919 ( that’s when it was added on )
