A previous commercial for-sale listing for the entire West Bend Winery indicated this property is the 26 acres of that tract west of the road (although it gave a price of just $1.195 million). That’s where Google Maps shows 5400 Williams Road.
    • Listing: The property includes a horse barn, another house (2,400 square feet) and a potential site for an additional home.
    • “Owners have made a residence of what use to be an events center and restaurant, much more space to add additional bedrooms and baths, should one choose to expand this space. This property is also listed as commercial.”

    • District NRHP nomination: “The hip roof on this boxy two-story frame house has a gabled extension over a slightly projecting front wing, creating the hip-and-gable form that was popular in the 1910s (the county date is 1906 although a date between 1910 and 1915 is more likely).

    • District NRHP nomination: “Story-and-a-half Period Cottage of weatherboard-sided frame construction with a steep composite-shingled side-gable roof. The roof is broken up by a steep-pitched front gable and a shed dormer. The front entry, under the front gable, has a heavy classical surround and a wood panel door. The front south corner of the house is a glassed-in porch.
    • “To the south side, a one-story, two-bay, side-gabled addition is connected by a small, recessed, glassed-in hyphen so that the wing almost appears to be a separate building. It has a parged foundation and may date to around 1980.

  • Note: It’s a ’60s brick ranch, but it’s worth looking at for how it integrates the carport into the design of the house. So many carports are afterthoughts, tacked on, cheaply built and not a visual asset. Mid-Century Modern houses tend to incorporate them well into the overall design, but its unusual to see one so well designed in a brick ranch.

A brick end chimney on the north elevation and an interior chimney at the ell’s center serve the house. Both chimney stacks have been reconstructed.
    • “William F. Walker (1859-1942), known as Frank, purchased 1.96 acres from Charles A. and Maggie M. Hartman on August 22, 1907 for $350.00. The acreage was north of Lonnie Horne’s store and south of the Hartmans’ farm. Mr. Walker soon constructed the house at what is now 2000 Farmington Road, as Davie County property record cards state that the dwelling was completed in 1913.
    • “The 1920 Federal Census enumerates sixty-one-year-old William F. Walker at this location (between the Lonnie Horne and John James households). At that time, Mr. Walker’s household consisted of his wife Emma C. and their children Evola (19), Kenneth P. (16), and Mildred F. (8). …
