From the Zillow listing:


Wonderful opportunity to revitalize the iconic ~Conyers House~ in beautiful FT Valley as a B&B, private dwelling, or romantic country restaurant. With history dating back to 1770, this 18th century home with 21st century additions, boasts thick walls with many windows, dark stained wide plank floors, fireplaces and bathrooms in almost every room (some with claw foot tubs), 6 porches on two levels, tin roof, stone chimneys, two guest cottages, and a barn.   Most bedrooms are en-suite with private porches. The expansive dining room is over 25 feet in length with large beautiful windows, molding throughout and a classic fireplace. This room could also serve as a multi-function great room. There is a two-room commercial kitchen with beamed ceiling, two gas stoves, a large prep island, two sink areas, a commercial refrigerator, and cozy fireplace.


The fourth floor offers ample space for a library, hobby room, or bedrooms. The ground level, which once housed the kitchen in olden days, would make the perfect wine cellar and media room.   Two dependencies with tin roofs, add to the charm of this enclave. The ~Hill House~ has a combined sitting/bedroom, bathroom and covered porch.  The ~Old Spring House~ has a main floor sitting room, fireplace, large bathroom and an upstairs bedroom.   The barn is ready for horses and has an enclosed paddock and the former smokehouse provides a workshop and storage area.


Whether you sit on the porch to enjoy the Blue Ridge Mountain views, swim or fish in the Hughes River, hike Old Rag, take a short drive to the Shenandoah National Park or to the local wineries and delicious eateries, this is a location full of beauty and history. Your vision is all that is needed to enhance this historic four-story house and compound. We welcome your visit- pictures can only convey so much. The house must be experienced in person to feel its history, tradition of hospitality and country respite.
