OWN A PIECE OF MARIETTA TRUE HISTORY. BE THE FIRST TO SEE THIS ENGLISH TUDOR STYLE COTTAGE HOME. Sitting back from Ohio 60 just outside Marietta,N. shrouded among trees sits a 20th century home built by William W. Mills for his wife, Betsey Mills. On the edge of what used to be hundreds of acres of land. Still remaining & for sale is 12+acres on the hilltop."It was designed by Donald P. Hart," "He was from New York City, but his family was from Marietta. He also designed the Betsey Mills Club buildings.The home's architecture stands out amid the countryside. 5 minutes from town but complete privacy. Surrounded by nature. Was built from 1910 to 1915, with the Mills family moving in soon after its completion. It was one of the first homes in the area to have electricity.From a large entryway, bright living room and glassed-in solarium, the house has upwards of 20 rooms. 5 bedrooms upstairs. '"The home was part of the old Dawes family farm. Mills was an owner of the Marietta Chair Company at one time, which is where most of the interior came from."The doors are two-faced," "There's one kind of wood on one side to match (one room) then another kind of wood on the next side (to match the woodwork in that room)." Owners parents purchased this large cottage home in the mid-1960s, and the home hasn't undergone any drastic changes; many of the original gas lights are still installed in the home. Sellers are the fourth owners and have owned it the longest.

    Fabulous! I love it all! The kitchen, while obviously not original, has at least not suffered modern upgrades and I love the detail of the blue ceiling!

    I am a Dawes decedent. William Dawes to be exact who rode with Paul Revere, only into the British. I wonder if this place belonged to distant relatives? It’s quite lovely and amazingly unchanged from when that picture was taken. I bet there is some pretty wood floors under all that carpet.

    Wow what a nice way to end my day! I hope he price discourages flippers with their penchant for white woodwork.

    Very nice! First thing I’d do is get rid of that barf/mauve colored carpet.

    Sans carpeting, it satisfies my lust for Arts and Crafts estates. I’d have a blast restoring the kitchen, with a little inspiration from this:

    I knew I would love this before I ever got to the photos. So perfect in fact that all I’d do would be pull up that carpet and polish the wood. Incredible, homey and gorgeous on the outside too. Wish I had that kind of $$. . .
