This three-story Victorian with a wide front porch is the kind of house I brake for when I’m driving through a neighborhood. Built in the 1860s, it’s on the market for $729,000 in Terrace Park, a scenic village known for its beautiful older homes in Ohio–take a look!
I’d spend my summers on this porch. Love it.
The house seems to have great bones, and it doesn’t look as “fussy” as some Victorians tend to be. Wouldn’t it be fun to decorate?
There are 6 bedrooms and 3 baths.
I grew up in a neighborhood full of old houses and a lot of them had second-story “sleeping porches” like this one–and I always wished we had one, too.
The third floor:
I got to go on a neighborhood home tour in Terrace Park a few years ago and a tour guide told us that the servants often lived on the top floors of houses like this. She said, “Just imagine how warm it got up there in the middle of summer without air conditioning or, in some cases, windows that opened.”
The kitchen has been updated but still looks like it belongs in an older home. I’m always relieved when I see one like this that hasn’t been modernized with acres of granite countertops and stainless steel.
