 Located on Chambers Road in [[Walton]], the Robert Chambers House was constructed in 1914 and represents stylistic and structural innovation in a rural house of the early 20th century. ​ It is a frame residence of rectilinear form, under a cross-gabled roof of stamped metal shingles. ​ A roof gable is centered on the facade. Extending across the front is an open porch with Tuscan columns. ​ The house rests on a poured concrete foundation, said to be one of the first in the county; because of technological limitations,​ it was poured in three sections. ​ An English timber-frame barn stands on the property.  ​ Located on Chambers Road in [[Walton]], the Robert Chambers House was constructed in 1914 and represents stylistic and structural innovation in a rural house of the early 20th century. ​ It is a frame residence of rectilinear form, under a cross-gabled roof of stamped metal shingles. ​ A roof gable is centered on the facade.
