Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Fremont, Ohio

By Sablemable


Today’s home is brought to you by NPR follower, Jason, and what a house he found!  Hurray, Jason!!!!!!!!!!!!

This home is absolutely out of this world!  Located at 1516 Hayes Avenue, the house was built in 1950, has 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and has one of the most unique layouts ever.

Bolte Real Estate-Fremont has the listing and the price is only $175,000.00










Looks like the entry and main hallway (seen from the living room)  notice the little corner shelf?  I know what it’s for; do you?


The living room, going to…





the dining room



I don’t know how to describe the next room.  Is it a sitting/parlor area, a bedroom?  The window faces the street, if that helps.






The Kitchen

Not sure about the originality of those cabinets, but we can fix that!




Oh. My. God.  I had to reach for the oxygen when I saw the glass blocks and tufted booth. 



Two bedrooms




One of the bathrooms.  Yes, this is another chest clutcher.




What a home!  Don’t you agree, readers?


Let’s give Jason a salute for finding this masterpiece!

    It is really cool! I like the blue in the kitchen. Not sure about the fence in the front, seems too high. The little shelf was for the corded telephone I believe. My grandparents house has something like that. I’ll have to take a picture. I wonder if the booth material is original. Could it stay so white that long?…

    Lovely house! Perhaps the round room is a music room? I can picture a grand piano sitting in the middle of it.

    And a Chambers 90C gas range in the kitchen! I have a newly-built home, but I have that very stove in my kitchen.

    What a wonderful home—I love the kitchen and the bathroom! I checked—you know I dearly miss our old home and am not crazy about this house despite the fabulous deck—but alas, it’s a bit of a long commute to central Ohio. 😉

    Great find, Jason!

    Hm, think this ate my first comment, but that’s okay, because oh my gosh, I just realized this bathroom has the SAME FLOOR as in our old home’s bath! *tears* Definitely a beauty of a home. Forgot to say that I like the kitchenette, too. So glam! Such a shame that this is too far away from where Hubby works! Darn!

    What a beauty and most of it original and intact! I love it when houses of this era still have original baths and tile work. Is the house for sale?

    That corner shelf it probably for a telephone. We had a small inset shelf with jack along the stairway of the house I grew up in. I also have a Chambers 90C white like that one and it looks great with my white cabinets!
