Why Ted Davenport chose Winchester
After living near Chicago, St. Louis, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Cincinnati, We purchased this property to get back to our Hoosier roots near the Whitewater River valley. Both Ted and Debbie were born in Richmond just 25 minutes south of the property. Winchester is a great little town brimming with family values, lots of churches, nearby shopping, and close to our family.

This home has something for everyone!. The older folks can sit by the living room fire or on the patio and have great conversation while the kids enjoy the pool or the theater/game room.

Outdoor area for family games was very impressive. Played volleyball, badminton, chipped golf balls. Also large fire pit was nice for evening singing, s’mores and more. Indoor pool was great. Kitchen and dining facilities were great. Only drawback was although there are 7 baths most are upstairs in private bedrooms. The one most used on the main level is very small. Family all had a great time.
Wonderful house for a big family reunion. The large yard, huge dining room and indoor pool were a hit. We roasted marshmallows and ate s'mores every night around the outdoor fire pit.
Perfect place for a family reunion
2 washer and dryers. Long dinner table accommodated all of the adults.
Kids enjoyed the pool and the yard.

This was our first stay at this amazing property! Our family reunion of 25 fit perfectly into the bedrooms with room to spare. We enjoyed the beautiful grounds (room to run, play volley ball, badminton), hung out on the patio, and splashed around in the unique indoor pool. Its been a long time since we have all fit around one table so the giant dining room was a special treat! We were not ready to leave when the time came--always a sign of a great reunion.
This home is beautiful and perfect for a large family reunion. We had 18 adults and 8 children and everyone had very comfortable sleeping arrangements. Ted, the property owner was beyond accommodating with our requests and always responded immediately. The pool was a HUGE amenity and our children spent a lot of time there. Also, we could all sit around the dining room table, which Grandma loved! We will definitely be back and strongly recommend this property.
Thanks to this family for a GREAT review.
The weekend that this family enjoyed at our property was quite rainy yet all had a good time with the indoor pool, game room, and other amenities.
