The Corners At Crystal Lake Apartments are located on Reynolda Rd at the location of the former Richard Davis Estate. Richard Davis was a brother to Egbert L. Davis, Sr, who built his country estate, Sunnynoll Farm, a couple of blocks south of this location at the corner of Reynolda and Polo Rds.

The Richard Davis family had the Davis department store. There were also two lakes behind the house that stood on this property and Mr Davis built a swimming pool and dance hall between the two lakes that catered to the wealthy and affluent in the early years, then later became a favorite unique swimming pool for all of Winston-Salem to enjoy. It closed in the mid 1970's and was sold to build the apartment complex. The lakes, gazebo, and terraces are still intact today.
