This 1839 stone home, barn, and wagon shed are on 11.5 acres in Carrollton, Ohio, just a few miles north of the historic downtown district of this county seat. The property is situated on the western side of gently rolling hills, which are covered by woods and farmland. Constructed of solid stone (date and names inscribed in stones over the front door), hand-hewn timbers and capped by a slate roof, this home has been preserved and was tastefully renovated in 2003. It is officially classified as a regional interpretation of the Greek Revival style, but it clearly also has a lot of characteristics of Federal-style homes. It features two full modern baths, a new high-efficiency LP furnace, whole-house air conditioning, and city water. The home has a walk-out basement. The home has a large country kitchen with custom cabinets made from walnut cut on the property, a spacious living room, a large family room with exposed stone walls, a mud room and laundry room, and two large bedrooms upstairs (one with a fireplace), with potential for converting a downstairs room into a third bedroom. The entire home has three fireplaces and two wood stoves. One of the stoves is on the 15’ x 30’ screened-in porch, which features a cathedral ceiling. The home has hardwood floors throughout and beautiful woodwork. The detached 2-car garage is relatively new; it has a stone foundation and a large walk-up second story that could easily be finished. The property also has a large picnic pavilion.
The award-winning bank barn, circa 1825, has been called one of the best examples of a Schweitzer Scribe-Rule barn in the state, and it was described as being in “almost pristine” condition by an Ohio barn expert. It was awarded “Barn of the Year” for preservation in 2018. Its timbers are all hand-hewn, and it features gunstock posts; posts and beams are matched with Roman numerals. It has a threshing floor, hay mows, granary rooms, and a lower level for animals. It was resided and reroofed with appropriate materials in 2003. It could be used for animals or storage, and would make an amazing party center, shop, or home.
This property is just over an hour from Pittsburgh International Airport and 45 minutes from Akron-Canton Airport. All gas and oil rights will be reserved and do not transfer.
