Preservation Personals: A Quaint Tudor in Oberlin, Ohio

  • By: Rebecca Gale

To buy or not to buy: that is the question. If you've ever wanted a home that can transport you to Shakespearean England (minus the bubonic plague and chamber pots), I might be your Romeo! Built in 1932, I am a Tudor Revival-style house in Oberlin, Ohio.

I’m just steps from the Oberlin Arboretum as well as golf courses and a Frank Lloyd Wright house museum … What more could you want in a neighborhood? I’m also a short walk from the campus of Oberlin College, one of the nation's first co-educational liberal arts colleges, and the city’s downtown area.

My exterior has beautiful historic features like half timbering, patterned brick, and diamond-pane windows that lend me a charming Old World feel.

Cozy period details inside like inglenook seating, exposed wooden ceiling beams, arched doorways, and Art Deco-style light fixtures provide a wonderful setting for you to unwind. Grained oak and maple parquet flooring complement my artful paneled wood doors and unique wooden banisters.

My sunroom features French doors and beautiful floor-to-ceiling, wood-framed windows. A modern eat-in kitchen opens up to my beautiful backyard, complete with a sandstone patio and lush gardens.

Five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, along with a mud room, den, and office provide plenty of space and are crowned with additional historic details like built-in shelves, radiators, and half-timbering. Half-timbering inside the third-floor bedroom creates a wonderful, otherworldly atmosphere that makes Tudor-style houses like me so alluring. My finished basement has a laundry room, a cozy wood-paneled multipurpose room, and a wine cellar.
