Sandidge-Walker House – College

Sandidge-Walker House is a large two-story wood-framed structure sheathed in polychrome reddish-brown brick. It has a rectangular plan and overhanging hipped roof clad in glazed green tile. A full porch extends across the front, with brick piers and cast stone balustrade. A porte-cochere wing projects from the south wall. A Missionesque dormer set centrally on the roof serves as a focal point for the composition. The house was built c. 1921 for George T. Sandidge, a cattleman. Dr. Webb Walker bought the property in 1925, residing here until 1954. The house appears to be eligible for the National Register as a work of residential design. The Walker-Sandidge House was designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1986 and Demolition Delay in 1995.
