Architectural and Historical Information
The John Edward Bell Shutt House and its outbuildings represent an unblemished example of rural life at the turn of the century in Davie County. The house is comprised of two separate frame houses built by prominent local farmer J.E.B. Shutt and his wife, Floriona Jane Sink Shutt. The original one-and-a-half story timber frame house was built in 1885, and as the Shutt farm and business ventures grew and prospered, the larger three-bay-wide weatherboard story-and-a-half house was added in 1905. They are connected by a breezeway which provides wonderful air circulation throughout the house.
The home also features a stylish unpainted wood staircase, vintage farm sink, wide plank walls, and a separate screened porch — perfect for enjoying relaxing evenings outdoors. The house will need updates for today’s living, but the layout lends itself ideally for an intergenerational family living, and the land allows for a family, specialty farm or small winery to complement the almost dozen wineries within twelve-mile radius of the property.
Davie County is the kind of place where families still spend time together, neighbors are still neighborly and entrepreneurs still chase dreams. Though largely rural, Davie County is developing a growing suburban population who are attracted to our superior quality of life, low cost of living, top-rated school system and community college, and state-of-the-art medical facilities, all within close proximity to surrounding cities including Winston-Salem, High Point and Greensboro.
