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 reported to be the first steel-frame home in town, with concerete in floor joists, 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 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, now serving as a mud-room/side-entry foyer. An updated modern kitchen has plenty of room for gourmet cooking and family meals, opening 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 with a brand new boiler, 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!
