OHD Notes
From the Toledo's Attic site: "The Italian Renaissance style of this home is well represented by its rectangular design with composite columns, brick and sandstone construction, and the carved stone and zinc panels above many of the windows. The house was designed by architect Ed Fallis and built in 1892 for John Waite, a Toledo plumbing contractor.

The interior of the house is rich with imported and rare adornments. The foyer and staircase are done in white oak. The living room woodwork is birdseye and ribbon maple. Also in the living room are excellent examples of chandeliers and sconces by Faukebach, and a hand-carved Italian mantelpiece imported from France. The coffered ceilings were imported in sections from England. Another English import is the Zuber mural in the dining room. Even though the wallpaper was damaged when a covering layer was removed, it is still considered to be museum quality. The original wood blocks used to print this paper still exist at the French manufacturer's plant.

Throughout the home are 800 pieces of cut, beveled glass, including original beveled glass doors and windows."

    I like this one. Has a feeling of almost being a hotel. But it’s hard to figure out what is where. A floorplan would be very useful.

  5. Beautiful home on the old west end. I love it! Surprised by how much of the original house is still intact. You can see a photo of the home from early 1900’s at http://www.oldwestendtoledo.com/index.php/oldwestend/collingwood-boulevard/1-collingwood/detail/36-2256-collingwood-waite-home

    Holy Toledo! What a house! Anywhere else you’d have to add a zero or two after the price! I can’t tell if the upstairs floors are covered for some reason, or if that’s water damage.

      Looks like there is a fair amount of water damage on some of the floors and walls sadly. Hope someone buys this one and gets to fixing her up quick!

    Some of the spaces in this home are quite elegant. This would be an incredible house to restore!

  8. After I was born In Toledo I was brought home from the hospital to a house on this street- Collingwood. I spent many weekends in my youth going to the Old West End Festival. The old houses in Toledo are amazing! I hope someone rescues this house and gives it the love and attention it deserves!
