As you enter this century home, you will appreciate the beauty and elegance of one of Summit County's historical gems. From the architectural design and detail, the large red barn, and engraved entrance stone of one of this home's first occupants, this house welcomes you from the past. The wide plank, wood floors have been lovingly restored in the kitchen, formal dining room, hall, and entrance foyer. The kitchen has been remodeled with newer cabinets, farmer sink, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The spacious living room has floor to ceiling windows that bring in plenty of natural light, and a beautiful fireplace that can warm a winter's evening. The family room features a utility bar, built in cabinets and book shelves for an abundance of storage. The sun room, right off the family room, is a lovely three season retreat. As you climb the stair to the second floor, you will admire the beautifully crafted hand railing. The three bedrooms are ample sized and are situated off the main upstairs hall detailed with nooks and crannies. The home is in need of some TLC, but it is priced to sell on this 2+ acre lot, with possibilities that are endless. This home has the original pump house, smoke house and good sized out building. The home is being sold as is.

    Wow, I love it, even still has a step for getting on a wagon, or stage coach!

    Is that a steeple on the old pump house? Was it wind powered once upon a time? Or am I just seeing things?

      I was wondering that too. Looks like a steeple plopped down in a tornado. Just a wee bit out of proportion to the rest of the building. Also, what is that concrete U-shaped thing featured in one of the pictures?

      Yeah … what IS that? I can’t tell if it is attached to the roof of the small structure or behind it, like a windmill. Kind of weird. The rest of the place is quite fetching!

      That has to be the smoke house smokestack.

      The pump house structure looks similar to the first oil well in Pennsylvania. Maybe it wasn’t a water pump house? Or more likely, maybe early oil wells took their design from water or salt brine wells.

        I think it may have had a windmill on it. Could’ve been used as a pump, but they built a structure around it. And yeah, WTH is that weird concrete thing and why o why would an agent take a photo of that and not explain it in the description????

    “As is.” Wonder why?

  4. This house is even more charming in person! I have driven past it for many years as I used to live in Fairlawn. It’s on a busy road, but sits high up off the street. It’s surrounded by beautiful mature trees and is literally 5 minutes away from everything a person could need. I can’t believe I have moved away and it is now for sale! I drooled over this darling house for so many years! It’s a really great area with so many things to see and do. Thank you for posting it, so we could see the photos. I still love it!

    This is really a lovely home. I’m not usually fan of old wallpaper, but this looks good. Bonus points for no big screen TV in evidence. My guess is that the “as is” qualifier may be reflect that this is an estate sale and the heirs want to sell the property quickly and move on. Just a guess.

    Lovely house, and so welcoming! I’d put up new curtains, slipcover a few things and call it mine!

    Absolutely perfect

    apparently the later posters didn’t read the second poster. Sue correctly identified what the rest of you call “that concrete thing” as a carriage step and it’s probably granite or some local stone.
    i was curious what a “farmers sink” was having grown up on a farm in a Federal house. This ain’t it. our sinks were cast iron that you were constantly wiping dry or they rusted. and then in the 50’s we changed to the best sinks ever. one side is a normal kitchen sink but the other side is 18″ deep which on a farm is perfect for washing large lots of veggies or small children in. (old farms traditionally don’t have bathrooms just sinks and outhouses)
    i really like those little narrow second floor windows esp in the bedroom with the fireplace cut down to match. a much better solution than cutting a dormer in the roof and much cleaner looking plus not so leak prone.
