W.K. Walton built this home circa 1919. Walton planted four acres of avocados and eventually established one of the first commercial avocado nurseries in south Dade. This wood frame, stucco covered residence is designed in the style of an English cottage and is not typical of other houses built during the same period in rural south Dade. Its most outstanding feature is the large gable roof, which imitates the thatch roof typical of English cottages. The Blanco family purchased the home in 1985 and are responsible for its restoration and rare plant garden. Hurricane Andrew did very little damage to the structure.
