This grand old home known as “Cobble Court” sits on 9 rolling acres. It has 9 bedrooms and 8 baths, and it’s on the market for $8.7 million. It was built in 1933 to look like a French Norman country estate and definitely looks European. Surprisingly, though, it’s not really French–it’s right here in Ohio, just a few miles away from my house (no, we don’t all live like this in the Buckeye State, I’m sorry to say).
I already showed you the grand staircase with the red carpet (Staircases That Would Make Scarlett Swoon). Now here, as promised, are pictures from the rest of the house.
This looks like many of the rambling old homes we saw when we were in England a few years ago.
Here’s the hall (above) with a glimpse of the red staircase that you already saw here.
This fireplace is almost as big as the one in Citizen Kane (another movie I should’ve added to my list of favorites in the post about Houses on the Big Screen). Among other things, it says “Cobble Court 1933″ in the stone.
This great hall made my jaw drop. Who knew there were people living like this a few blocks from my humble abode?
Here’s the view of the other end of the hall. I love the bookshelves and balcony.
And finally, here’s the view from that balcony. Look at those floor-to-ceiling bookshelves! The whole place is pretty spectacular.
