Why We Love It
1. It's Iconic. Built in 1922, it seems like every person in Grove City has walked, ridden a bike, or driven by this home at some point. When word got out that we were listing this house, the overwhelming response was that everyone knew exactly what we were talking about. Whether their family member used to live there, they spent the night with a childhood friend, or they saw it as they were going to Twin Towers or Windsor Park... the fact is that everyone seems to remember it once they've seen it. Maybe it's the architecture, maybe it's because it sits on a hill, or maybe it's the huge yard... but something about this home is special.
2. Location. I can imagine coming home in the evenings, sitting out back, and listening to the sounds of laughter, the umpires calling balls and strikes, the roars of the crowd when their favorite little short stop hits one over the fence! The ambient sounds and white noise from a little league game are as American as apple pie. So much so, that I believe John Fogerty, Alabama, and Bruce Springsteen have all written songs about it! And it's all happening just beyond your huge backyard. Windsor Park is home to the official “Little League”, a popular spot for baseball tournaments around the state, and recently became home to “Buddy Ball” (baseball for special needs children). You can always find Windsor Park from the landmark baseball water tower. Downtown Grove City is also within walking distance.
3. Charm. The thing people love about these older houses versus the newer ones is the charm a character. You don’t see architectural features such as wide trim on the floors, molding around the windows and neat built-ins. The character of this home has been well preserved. Whoever buys this house is going to have so much fun “making it their own”.
What You Need To Know
This home sits on a large corner lot with a double parcel equaling about .32 of an acre. In an established Grove City neighborhood that backs to Windsor Park, the curb appeal of this home is quite charming. It looks like an old farmhouse, with a covered front porch that has doors in the front and out the back to the detached garage. There are mature shrubs in front for privacy, if you would like to look out, they could easily be removed and you could have a wonderful view. This would be a perfect place to decorate and even extend your living area. As you enter the home, notice the doors and windows, they give you an nice inkling of what you will see on the inside!
As you enter the home, you will find a modern grayish paint color, paired with the thick white trim around the floors & windows... set against parquet floors. The arch doorways are inviting throughout the home. I have seen modern day builders try to mock this architectural design but you can always tell the difference between the new and old.
The living area is large and leaves plenty of options for arrangements. A fireplace is the focal point of the room and adds a lovely decorative element to it. Transitioning to the dining room, you will love the 3 windows that allow tons of natural lighting and make the space feel more open. There is also half bathroom and two storage closets off the dining room.
The kitchen is large and has stainless steel appliances (that includes a dishwasher). I love the built in pantry/spice cabinet that it has! Off the kitchen is another covered porch area. These Sellers used it for storage, but it could also be yet another sitting space.
Upstairs you will find 3 large bedrooms all with nice size closets. I have been in many older houses, where the closet space was compromised in order to have larger rooms. Thankfully that is not the case here.
The basement is clean, the roof and HVAC have all been replaced in the last ten years, and the hot water tank is less than two years old.
The backyard is huge and has a nice space if you wanted to have a backyard kickball game, sit around a fire pit, or jump on a trampoline. There are tons of mature trees along the lot line to give you privacy from the street and park. A sidewalk leads you to the two car detached garage to hide your cars from Ohio's snow.
Not only are you close to Windsor Park, but you are also in walking distance or a nice bike ride to Grove City’s Historical Town Center, which includes tons of shopping, food, and history... and is currently undergoing another rebirth of development.
