    This is one I would love to get my hands on with a bucket of money by my side. It may look like just a small cabin that has seen better days but this is something that could really be a showplace with an excruciatingly, historically accurate renovation.

    I enjoy looking at this cabin exactly as it is because I can imagine the life that went on in it 250 years ago. I can imagine myself the woman of the house cooking in that fireplace and making this a home for my family.

    Please, someone buy this gem to restore, not renovate. Please no granite counters, plastic windows, fake flooring, or siding.

    It’s wonderful that this survived the subdivision. Known as Fort Colvin and built before 1751, when the structure was shown on a survey map as the Spring House of Thomas Marquis. It was possibly a log structure originally and rebuilt in stone after that date. “Fort” comes from settler’s having to fortify their homes against attack by natives, probably not an issue these days.

      Nope, according to city-data Winchester has slightly less than average crime. 🙂

      Depending on your budget you could have a (tastefully integrated) wing added for a kitchen, bath and computer/media room and leave the rest of the place mostly intact without stressing where to retrofit plumbing, HVAC and wires. What a gem!
      Kudos for the owners who kept it original.

    Be still my heart! I would totally restore and then live as a homesteader. What an amazing home.

    Wow, I like the older more ornate styles like the Queen Anne’s and the Italianate’s but this is beautiful! What a showplace this one could be. It looks to be incredibly well preserved considering too.

    My heart stopped when I saw the inside of this home. You hardly see many houses this rustic, primitive and original. Oh, to have the money and time…
