Known as the "Swan Residence," this wonderful Victorian timepiece has been cared for throughout the years, which shows in its detail, condition, and charm. Beautiful woodwork throughout the first-floor formal living room and dining room, right down to the open kitchen with built-in china cabinet and butler's pantry. Go back in time in the full, second-floor bathroom, where all fixtures are authentic to the period. A new, rear addition has a huge, warm utility room/office area. Outside there are two porches -- a wonderful, relaxing wraparound with peninsula on the front, and a smaller side porch for grilling and entertaining off the kitchen. There's also a detached garage/workshop, and a two-story barn that is currently being used as a recreation and hot tub room. A driveway goes around the property, which abuts open fields and pastures that were part of the original Swan property. Without a doubt, this is one of the finest parcels on Parker Street, if not all of downtown Winchester.
