This striking Tudor style home is an Oberlin landmark located on a beautiful street, close to the local arboretum, trails, golf course and within walking distance to town and campus. It is also the first steel-frame home in town, with sturdy and insulated lathe and plaster walls, thus making it, according to a local historian, “a tight, fireproof, soundproof structure, cool in summer and economical in winter.” A small front porch with gothic arches provides a sheltered entry into the front foyer, which opens into a spacious living room with inglenook seating, and a delightful adjacent sun-room. A den/study on the opposite side of the home leads into the old kitchen which now serves as a mud-room and a side entry foyer. The new and modern eat-in kitchen has plenty of room for gourmet cooking and family gatherings, and opens onto an outdoor sandstone dining patio and a peaceful garden. The second floor houses four bedrooms and two baths, while the third floor has a fifth bedroom and a full bath. The full-height basement houses laundry facilities, utilities room, a wine cellar, and a large multi-purpose room with exposed ceilings beams. Distinctive architectural features include steep multi-gabled roofs, half-timbering, prominent chimney, tall and narrow mullioned casement windows, patterned brick, arched doorways and warm and cozy interiors with grained oak and maple parquet flooring throughout. This home is a must-see – schedule your tour today!
