Selma – 514 Amherst Street, Winchester, VA.

Selma is a graciously captivating manor house that exudes a silk like elegance on the outside and a stately warmth within.  I believe in this wondrous and spectacular home! Throughout the generations, she has been the site of grand balls, galas, weddings, fundraisers and fabulous fourth of July picnics.  Dignitaries, Celebrities, Family and Friends have reveled in her captivating charm.  This exquisite and iconic home is set on 4.15 scenic acres, overlooking Amherst Street, in the Winchester Historic District.   Convenient to Virginia’s Horse and Wine Country, Washington, D.C. and a short walk to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley and Glen Burnie.

If only walls could talk, what stories they could tell!  Contact Karin Andrews at 804-445-5500 with Howard Hanna / William E. Wood and Associates, to arrange your showing of this exquisite historic icon, located in Winchester’s famed historic district.
