Property Description
This fine, 2-story Queen Anne house has many original interior features, a solid assessment of the house, and a view of the Brushy Mountains! The Winkler House is poised to be an integral part of the revitalization of downtown Wilkesboro. While the house has seen many modifications over the years, the essential integrity and character of its interior features remain, including a fine staircase and several detailed fireplace mantels.

From the feasibility study prepared by Maurer Architecture:

“The W. Carter Winkler House stands at the corner of Bridge and South Street in downtown Wilkesboro, North Carolina. The house was built in 1892 by William Carter Winkler (1858 – 1939) and his wife Mary Louisa Bower (1866 – 1928), and is situated on a hill one block from the Wilkes County Courthouse (built 1902). The location of the house is an indication of the prominence of the Winkler family as well as the significance of the house in the landscape of downtown Wilkesboro.

The original house has been altered several times over the course of its history, but much of the character-defining architecture remains today. The house was built in a restrained Queen Anne style featuring steep gabled roofs, drop-lap siding (also known as German siding), large bay windows, elaborately detailed front and side doors, and a wide L-shaped front porch. The front portion of the house was built on dry stacked-stone piers, and the middle and rear sections were built on brick foundation walls which enclose the basement level.

It is thought to be the first house in Wilkes County to feature indoor plumbing, and the original brick spring-fed cistern with plaster lining can still be seen in the basement today. The location of the original well is currently marked by a square concrete pad, but it once would have been covered by an independent well-house structure. Today the well is enclosed under later house additions, but it originally stood behind the house where the brick cistern was covered by a rear porch, protecting the clean drinking water from the intrusion of rainwater.

One of the most unique features of the original house is the presence of a basement kitchen. The original brick foundation walls were plastered, indicating that the space was used for food preparation and storage. The original basement fireplace (also plastered) would have been used for cooking, and it remains today below the center hall of the house. The chimney was removed during early renovations, but it once ran along the wall which separates the northern rooms from the stairs, and out through the prominent front gable. Today, patches in the original wood floors indicate the location of the chimney penetrations.”

A copy of the feasibility study, which includes detailed information about rehab needs, will be made available upon request to prospective buyers.

 
Additional Notes
The charming town of Wilkesboro is known worldwide for MerleFest, a diverse roots-music festival dedicated to the memory of Merle Watson, son of of the late legendary Doc Watson. Wilkesboro and Wilkes County also offer a wide variety of activities for everyone, from mountain biking to wine tasting at the local vineyards and many events in between, including the Wilkesboro Open Air Market, the Carolina in the Fall Music & Food Festival, and the Brushy Mountain Apple Festival. This charming mountain town is undergoing a major Downtown Revitalization Project, with plans for a new Open Air Market space, a kid-friendly splash pad and concert space. Wilkesboro is about an hour west of Winston-Salem, about an hour from Lake Norman, and 30 miles to Boone. Nearby outdoor activities abound, including hiking along the Blue Ridge and to waterfalls, natural springs, kayaking, fishing and more.
