  • Great info on the roots of Winchester. Though not everything inside is original to the house, the staff makes a point to tell you which ones are. Lovely look at history. I hope one day we're allowed to go the second upstairs. I'm never satisfied looking at these old and gorgeous landmarks.
  • Beautiful home!
