    I really love this house. The built-ins are gorgeous, but then everything else about this home is so lovely, too. Just imagine being able to have that library in one’s own home! If anyone sees a house like this for sale at any time near Nashville/Murfreesboro, TN area, I’d buy it in a heartbeat!

    Neat house & my favorite style. That library alone… wow! Plus a breakfast nook, lovely fp, leaded glass for the built-ins, large linen cupboards… ??

    Such a jewel. I’d love to polish it.

    I too, wouldn’t mind a shot at this one. How very pretty, spacious and comfortable looking. Love the built-ins. This could be a stunner…

    The elegant living room and dining room are formal yet inviting — but the piece de resistance is that library. What a beautiful room! Although I also love the little vestibule and of course that wonderful tile bath. Not to mention the breakfast nook. Other than removing what looks like acoustic ceiling tile in a couple rooms, and switching out the flooring and counters in the kitchen for something a little more 1920s-looking, there’s not much I would change!

      I agree, Daughter of George, that library is where I would be all the time. All that wood in the house is to die for. It has such a warm, welcoming feel to it. Outside of updating appliances, I wouldn’t change that kitchen. I don’t think I would change anything in that house. It has such a homey feel.

      It’s the plaster that is sagging that makes it look like ceiling tile

    What a gorgeous house! It’s a shame that it’s SO close to the surrounding houses – I thought back then, they would have given each house a bit more yard space between.

    I just can’t help but focus on the year it was built… and wonder. Did the family who built this lose it the following year in the crash? That would have been heartbreaking. I’m sure there are many stories in this house.

      I was reading about this home, it’s actually two streets over from me, the owner didn’t lose it in the crash, he died from old age in the 50′ or 60’s at the nearby hospital and then the house was sold. The house sits on a “lot and a half”, the house right beside it has the same sized lot, but the rest apparently just sit on one lot. It is definitely too close to the neighbors though, from the master bedroom and master bath, you can see directly into their windows and backyard.

    Wow, those built ins are fab! I wonder what the floors look like under that carpet.

    • FuzzySlippers says: 4 comments

      Floors under the carpet are lovely wood, very well taken care of, throughout the main floor at least. The second floor is a different story, the owners at the time decided to paint the hardwood a very interesting shade of red, in a few of the rooms.

    I am in love with this Beautiful Home! Wherever is Mansfield, Ohio? Looks like it needs very little work here. Houses seem a little close, other than this, no car mplaints. Lovely woodwork through out. Betsy Crocker. 5/3/17

    My folks grew up in Mansfield, Ohio. It’s a lovely town with rolling hills, nice parks, and pretty neighborhoods. They moved to central Ohio to raise their family, but they always talked about going back. This beautiful house would have been built when my dad was just a toddler.

    Frank A. Klohs (1884-1940), a son of German immigrants, was a machinist and factory supervisor whose family was the first to own this home. In the 1930 Census, Frank was here with wife Mamie 41, and children Edna 12, Dorothy 9, and baby Frank 2 months old, also father-in-law August Boesch 67.

    I agree with all the compliments, and with some backdating of decor and a few fixtures, the house could easily feel like 1928 again. The mostly original baths thrill me more than the later kitchen bothers me.
