There is a lot of history that reaches back with this very interesting property.  This stone structure was built in 1871.  This is historically known as the Jacob Sperry Tanyard House.  It is unknown if Mr. Sperry actually occupied the structure as his home also. In the early days the house was also referred to as “Ross Castle” (ross referring to the rough bark used in the tanning process). The house sits adjacent to the Town Run.  This corner of E Cork & S Kent is comprised of two separate lots, totaling about 150 x 100, or .30 acre. The property is currently zoned HR1, but has the potential to rezone to business zoning (check with the City of Winchester for uses). The exterior of the home is limestone. There is a metal roof over most of the structure. The exterior remains in excellent condition. The interior could use total rehab, including plumbing and electrical.  There are a couple of large rooms on each level.  There is a full bath upstairs, and ½ bath on the main level.  Ideally the property would be converted to office use.  The kitchen is “makeshift”. The home in its current condition is not suitable for occupancy. There is a basement below, as well as storage space under 1 end of the house.  The location does require flood insurance.  This is a beautiful building.  The location is unique to downtown Winchester. Total square footage above grade is 1827 sq.ft.   The floors are wood throughout. There is stairs to a bedroom off the landing as well as a bedroom overtop the livingroom.  The livingroom below is quite spacious.  Heating is natural gas. The condition of that system is unknown. Take a look at this one for great future potential.  The MLS# is WI8731738.   The price is $224,900. Directions to the property: Downtown Winchester, at the corner of S. Cork St. and S Kent St.  The physical address is 204 S Kent St., Winchester, VA 22601     There is a Cedar Creek Real Estate sign posted.
