    Cadiz, OH

    If I’m not mistaken, this house has been on and off the market for several years. The exterior is very unassuming but the interior is impressive with fine period millwork and other details. Four bedroom house here for the modest asking price. Looks like it may have started out as a Stick Style or “Modern Gothic” style house originally.

    As mentioned in the state SHAARD documentation:
    “Notable for nice Queen Anne surface textures & details despite condition. Not many 2 story Queen Anne houses in Bloomfield as nice as this one.”
    So it’s officially “nice”, not just hearsay on the internet.

    The home of Marcus Hughes Shryer (1816-1900), merchant and banker.
    “As a citizen, Capt. SHRYER was enterprising and law-abiding. No man ever did more for the up building of Bloomfield and Greene County than he. He was always ready to help and encourage any laudable undertaking. He stood for all that is good and noble and pure in man.”

      I hate disagreeing with the experts (as in the writer of that report) but I see more Stick than Queen here. With the vertical and horizontal stick work. I know some Queen’s had horizontal but the overall form of the home with the overhanging eaves puts it in the Stick category, IMO. Street view even shows it a bit better, under both the front and porch gable are pick fence patterns. There are even brace supports under the eaves.

        The SHAARD entry says the style is Queen Anne, Stick/Eastlake. The description didn’t add to the obvious, or what John had already said above. I just copied the “nice” snippet because I thought it was amusing.

        The house is shown on a local 1879 map, so I think the date is correct.

    Whatever you all call it, I call it my little Midwestern dream home. There’s very little I’d change about it, just needs a little elbow grease. “sigh” someday maybe.

    I had the pleasure of living in the home in the early 1990’s when I was in elementary school. I love everything about this house except for the creepy basement and the attic space. My parents rented it and it unfortunately sold and we had to move. I have never gotten to go back. I wish I had gone when it was a B and B. Then I saw it for sale under 100,000 and it made me sick. I wanted to buy it so bad!! No way I could afford to turn it into what it needs to be. I hope to visit one day.
