House. 1913; late 20th

665 Walnut Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Two-story frame Craftsman house with weatherboard siding and an asphalt-shingle hip roof. The unusual engaged south-side porch has round wooden pillars and a pergola-like extension on the front. An exterior chimney constructed or faced with rock has stepped shoulders. Other features include a modern front one-story sunroom with a pergola-like extension, a one-story side shed wing with round-arched windows (recycled from an earlier sunroom), a two-story rear wing with a porch on the first story and a room above with casement windows in a peaked surround, a peaked louvered vent in a rear gable, and 6/1 windows. A terraced garden steps down to a stone retaining wall across the front of the lot. A coastal Virginia lumberman named Forester is said to have been the home's original owner. Later it belonged to the Branaman family. Marian Eckenrode, who with her husband Jim is the present owner, put in the front garden. (Marian Eckenrode)
