    1936 Cabin

    Oooh welcome home!!! I do love this house-updates would not have been my choices, but what is original is wonderful. I love the windows with the circular panes of glass-dear to my heart. I do like the old lighting. I have been thinking about a 1930s pendant for the cabin kitchen table, or perhaps a bit earlier, since the old cabinet radio is from the 20s. I was looking at Ross’s website for lighting today-such amazing fun, but most too fabulous for my simple cabin, but I wanted to get in the groove.

    “Nil Desperandum” -Never Despair

    That’s what’s posted over the door for good reason. How could one ever be in despair when there is an exotic palm court with bubbling fountain, art tile (Rookwood?), and colorful art glass to cheer-up any cloudy day? It’s a mini Alhambra right in Ohio!

  4. The genius of this design is the light! The interior court is a winter haven. Winter can be long in this area and this beautiful home will truly keep its occupants from despair. Amazing and indeed a treasure. Kelly you live up to the concept of dreams every posting.

      >fab. Natural light radiating from the core.
      Just thrilling. Seems sad without plants though. I have little doubt that was the case originally. Someone PLEASE bring some life into that ENVIABLE space!

    Addison Milner takes wrong turn and ends up in Ohio but, as long as he was there, decided to design a house.
    There’s a kitchen I can live with especially the window in the breakfast nook.
    This place is perfect.

      I’m sure you meant Mizner. Probably autocorrect. Insidious technology. 😉

      The house is a flawless wonder of amazing light and spectacular design. This level of preservation of original detail is not often seen. I imagine it has always been lovingly cared for over the years, and it shows.

      The contemporary kitchen and baths fit like gloves. Well done.

      One of the best houses ever featured on OHD – IMO; though I can’t imagine anyone disagreeing. 😊

  8. Built-in stove with plenty of counter space around it. Can’t get any better than that! 🙂

    Quite the place! So much to see. I just love that cozy upstairs porch, I’d spend some sweet time there with a good book and a Long Island ice tea! I’m with Bethany on the neighborhood too, lovely spot! And lastly…What about that crazy mirror in the exercise room!! Wow!

    In my late teens/early 20s (30ish years ago!),before I became a teacher, I used to clean many big homes in Oakwood.

    Like this one, they were all equally stunning and grand. Ridgewood, the street this is on, contains many of the larger “mansions”.

    I lived in Oakwood during this time as well, in the smaller Tudors section.
    I rented one of those cute little attic/servant’s quarters rooms.
    I adored every moment.
    I also enjoyed the chance to see so many fabulous homes (works of art really!), and came to know the amazing people who owned them.

    It’s a gorgeous town, well kept, and lots of history.

      I was drooling over the Tudor next door, even with the beauty of this home. What a wonderful looking and sounding area to live. Thanks for the share.

    1910 Tudor/craftsman mix

    There are certainly a lot of similarities to the house we saw several years ago in Newton IA. It also had the leaded glass atrium and the characteristic mission use of ivy leaves in the leaded glass. Plus a belvedere just like this one. This house is simply stunning and the only thing that I would change is swapping out some of the lighting for authentic mission fixtures. This is probably one of my very favorite houses that I have ever seen. It is pretty darn perfect. Great find Kelly!!!

    If I had to live in town, I would want it to be in a home like this. This one could not be reproduced for twice its asking price. Simply fantastic.

    I just knew from looking at this house before clicking on the photos that it was going to be special. It is that and more. What a dream — enchanting doesn’t quite cover it, but it’s a start. I love — POSITIVELY LOVE — everything about it. It is one of the most fascinating and surely unique houses I’ve seen here.
