From the Zillow listing:


“Valley Stream Farm” – Grab a piece a Winchester history and make it your own! This property (also known as the Colville-Jones house) is one of the oldest in the county dating back to 1760. The original log house has since been covered with stucco and raised to have two levels, and since then it has been combined with other additions that have been added over the years. The size and the flow of the house is remarkable considering its age…the character and the charm of the house remains perfectly in tact! Features like a classic Winchester knife edge stacked mantle and a spectacular 3-level central staircase are one-of-a-kind and you won’t want to miss! The exterior of the home is just as charming and inviting as the interior, complete with a full and functioning outdoor bathroom, a large 3-car detached garage with plenty of overhead storage, an additional detached 2 car garage with adjacent machine shed, plenty of garden space with a garden shed, and a brick spring house that has had brick renovations over the years. Even better, you have the Stonebrook Racquet and Fitness Center just next door for family entertainment! The seller acknowledges there’s some cosmetic work that needs updating and improvements, so the home is being strictly sold As-Is to any buyer. Buyers can consider and research registering for a “historic landmark designation” and pursue tax credits for repairs and renovations. You may be the perfect buyer for this home! Make an appointment to see it for yourself – won’t last long!
