Daily Dream Home: Selma


Selma, circa 1872, is an exquisitely appointed historic mansion with a commanding presence on Amherst Street in Historic Winchester, Va. Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, Glen Burnie and other notable properties nearby.

Set on 4.15 lush green acres. A zoning letter states the iconic property can be used as a bed and breakfast inn.

Built by Judge Edmund Pendleton, in the Second Empire Style, the home features original Black Walnut doors, grand staircase and unique heart pine/black walnut floors.

The grand center hall is awe inspiring as is the staircase that rises from the center hall to the second floor and beyond.

The grand ballroom must be seen for its sheer size and exquisite moldings. It has been the site of many Queen’s Balls and many other Apple Blossom Festival Events throughout the generations. Lucille Ball was here, as was Adam West and many other dignitaries, entertainers and celebrities. The home features prominently in Winchester history.

This property is listed for $1.8 million with Howard Hanna William E. Wood and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
