Historic Real Estate

Introducing the J.M. Bell House, listed on the Ohio Historic Inventory as RIC-0368-11.
“It’s all about Character! Built in 1880 this historical home is one of the few Victorian homes that have NOT been ruined by remodeling! This wonderful house is elegant, comfortable & inviting, with a lot of timeless character. You can have your office here, while the rentals pay your mortgage PLUS generate additional income.
All three kitchens and bathrooms are remodeled. 3 fireplaces, 2 with gas lines. This home holds the integrity of the original Victorian design with thoughtful upgrades. Most rooms have wood floors and high ceilings. Lots of closets & storage throughout the house and basement.
The rear apartment was added in 1955, and designed by an architect who studied under Frank Lloyd Wright… an influence you can see, including a signature Frank Loyd Wright limestone fireplace, and lots of built-in storage. The huge kitchen has an exceptional amount of storage, and stainless steel appliances. The 1955 Westinghouse stainless steel wall oven, an original from the Mansfield plant, still works better than new ovens! New carpet.
The upstairs apartment also has wood floors, fireplace, walk-in closet, remodeled kitchen and a large covered balcony for relaxing.
The 6-car garage has oversized 8.5’w x 8’h doors and an inside truck loading bay with garage door into carriage house. The original carriage house, adjacent to the garage, is a large 2-story storage space, possible to be upgraded as another apartment.
The house has a nearly-new full-house sprinkler system, which will substantially lower your insurance rates.
