Location: Westerville, Ohio
The Skinny: Several homes in the northeastern Columbus suburb of Westerville, Ohio, were stations on the Underground Railroad. One of them, an updated five-bedroom with a spiffy columned facade, some beautiful mounted panels rescued from the LeVeque Tower, a Jeffersonian-looking dome topped with a skylight, and a 1930s schoolhouse outfitted for guest accommodations, was put on the market just the other day.
The oldest sections, which were built in 1830, according to the marketing material, have a healthy amount of exposed brick that’s since been balanced out by large windows and glass doors in the rear of the home. Much of the yellow pine and walnut woodwork is original, and there’s vintage tiling in a few of the bathrooms. With a pool and an expansive brick patio, facing out on a about five acres with “mature trees & landscaping,” this handsome historic hodgepodge is priced at $1.25M.
