"The Country Place": 143 E Church St, New Vienna, Ohio

A classic textbook example of Gothic architecture
We know that a lot of you would like to just get away from it all, the congestion and crime of the city. Or maybe you long for second home a Victorian in a small town or in the country where you can decompress and enjoy a slower pace with your kids. This recurring series, "The Country Place" explores Victorian homes with some space or land where you can enjoy that experience.

This house is larger than it looks with 8 rooms
This home needs restoration but is architecturally stunning. Gothic revival homes that are not covered in vinyl and had their porches lopped off are rare indeed.

3BR, 1.5B two story historical home! Front & side covered porches! Original staircase & wood trim! Inlayed hardwood floors, transom windows, 9ft ceilings! Claw foot tub! Tall shade trees! New Vienna is a quant small town filled with Victorian homes in  Southeast Ohio.

Original interior shutters on second floor bedroom
While we wish there were more photos we can see that the second floor has its original shutters on the bay window. The lower bay will need restoration but you have model to work from. The exterior detailing on this house would shine with proper paint job.

Large lot perfect for formal gardens or that organic garden
The kicker? This house sitting on a huge lot is priced at ONLY 14,900 and you are about an hour to Cincinnati or Columbus OH in case you need your occasional city fix.

We do not think this will last long before someone snaps it up. More info: 143 E Church
