The House

First… some historical pics from 1982 when I bought the house. (The house is easier to see without some of the current landscaping.)

1982 – The basic house and detached-garage (both with aluminum siding) look basically the same.
Landscaping has changed. That white rectangle below the front-porch is the door to opening to the coal-chute. You can access it — and also a fruit-cellar under the left-side of the porch — from the basement.
1982 – about a mile walk to town. (15-minutes.)
This is the only house on the street with a garage. Only a few have off-street parking.
Upstairs WINDOWS on the right side of the house: Office, Bathroom, Guest Bedroom.
Smaller Windows Below: Basement area, dining room.
Note that there is access to the unusable, insulated “attic area” through the square window above the front porch.

It’s just a few blocks from the bike-path. Within walking-distance of Seaman’s grocery, Miller’s Chicken, the Ohio University Credit Union branch on S. Shafer Street, the fairgrounds, and the hospital. City bus-stop is 2 blocks away. Westside Elementary School is 2 blocks away.
ARTS/West is 2 short-blocks away. A great location with off-street parking.
This 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom house is perfect for a single person, single-parent, or small family.
1982 – back-porch has since been replaced with a deck approx 10′ wide x 6′ deep. with an entrance from the kitchen door. New wooden deck surface installed 11/20.

Below the garage is a shed (with 2 windows — one on the back, another on the right side)
Shed has a concrete floor (about half the size of the garage as it’s built into a bank.)
