REDUCED!!! 270 E. College $250,000 5 bd, 3 full/1 half bath 3298 sq ft!

Rare opportunity to own a piece of Oberlin's history with the Richards house built in 1911. This fantastic 5 bd, 3 full, 1 half bath was home to Mary & Erwin Richards who were missionaries in Africa for many years. At close to 3300 sq. ft. the home was designed to be large enough so that Mary could rent rooms to students to supplement her income after Erwin passed. A large foyer is flanked by the DR with stunning built ins to the right and a warm and inviting LR to the left. The home offers a 1st floor Master with full BA & gorgeous built ins unlike anything you have seen! The kitchen boasts tons of cupboard space & a 3 season porch just off of it! Upstairs you will find 4 bd...the current owners use one as a wonderful library. This floor also boasts another Master with its own bath and the other full bath on this floor has a new shower installed. The 3rd floor has a half bath and 3 more bd just waiting to complete a fantastic teen suite or extra space for a growing family! Gorgeous wood floors throughout! The detail of the built ins and woodwork in this home are extraordinary! Notice above each bedroom door are the names of cities the original owners traveled to in Africa. Outside you will find an edible landscape in both front and backyards! New boiler 2014 and new H2O tank 2012. Great location! Walking distance to campus, bike trail and downtown!
