Description

The former home of artist Henry Oliver Walker, the Walker-White House is a significant part of the history of the Cornish Artist Colony. Its modest original design was expanded with elements attributed to noted architect Charles Platt, combines a traditional New England farmhouse and an Italian villa. Purported to be the first home built in the Artist Colony, the home is approached by a long winding drive that affords total privacy and is sited at the edge of the valley overlooking the Blow Me Down Brook with majestic views to Mount Ascutney. The hip-roofed colonial offers over 5000 square feet, formal living and dining rooms and 5 bedrooms. A covered porch punctuated with doric columns and an extending pergola present the most pleasant outdoor living areas with views across the Connecticut River Valley. Renovated by the current owners in 1986, the Walker-White House presents the chance for new owners to take stewardship of an historic property in the Cornish Artist Colony.
