Today, we feature the house at 1814 Walker Avenue. This three bedroom, two bathroom house was built in 1925. It is located on the Westover Terrace/Aycock Street end of Walker. It is near the land that the prominent Greensboro pomologist and Quaker, John Van Lindley, developed at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.
On the sunny day, last Friday, when we drove by the home, the lemon-zest, yellow door stopped us in our tracks; and then, the angles and other geometric shapes caught our attention. The clear, lapis blue sky makes the bright yellow door pop. The door invites you to visit and there is no doubt where one enters! While only 1050 square feet, it looks bigger from the road.
We're thinking other houses in the neighborhood should choose a fruity, citrus-y color for their front doors-- a nod to the pomologist who once filled the area with great greenery and fruit. Pomegranate red, mango orange, grapefruit yellow, lime green... can you imagine? Warning, if you live is the above chipper house, you can never be in a bad mood!
