Williams House

-A A +A
1927, William Lawrence Bottomley; Charles Gillette, landscape architect. 4207 Sulgrave Rd. Not visible from the street

At the same time Virginia House and Agecroft were being reconstructed, Bottomley received a commission from E. Randolph Williams for this Georgian Revival house. The design is based on Westover, though Bottomley added and subtracted skillfully: it is five bays wide instead of seven, and recessed stucco panels on the entrance facade punctuate each bay. A stringcourse runs just below the second-story windows, and an elegantly designed door frame is derived from Palladio.
