For the thirteenth year I was delighted to have been a hostess during Historic Garden Week in Virginia for the Gloucester / Mathews Garden Club. It is always such a pleasure seeing old friends and making new ones. I am honored to be asked each year to assist. In Gloucester I was a Hostess in the Center Hall and Library/Office at Belvinhem Quay which featured stunning water views, glorious floral arrangements and an art collection for the ages!
Today I received a wonderful Thank You card from the Garden Club Co-Chairs for Belvinhem Quay. In case you missed anything or wish to refresh your memory on the tours you may have seen, I am attaching a PDF of the entire Historic Garden Week in Virginia Tour – Guidebook!
Selma is located in the Winchester Historict District Ge n FlyerSelma Circa 1872 is a grand and equally rare Historic Estate on 4.15 Park-like acres, in the Winchester Historic District. Selma is the most iconic home in Winchester, second only to Glen Burnie, which is now part of the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. The City of Winchester has provided a zoning letter that states that permitted uses include use as a B & B or Bed and Breakfast / Inn. This home is architecturally stunning and would make an ideal boutique Inn. Does need some TLC, although the bones of this grand home are excellent.
