Welcome to 814 E Main Street, Bellevue, Ohio – where timeless elegance meets modern comfort! Nestled on a tree-lined street, this enchanting home embodies the spirit of 1937, a year etched in history. The home boasts a “rear” entrance along Main Street and opens across the living room to grand main front entrance opening to a wide swath of green yard space that beckons one to remove your shoes and tiptoe through the lush grass.
Stepping through the welcoming front door, you're transported to an era of craftsmanship and community. An elegant main foyer, with high ceilings and a superb rounded staircase, gives one a sense of style that would take your breath away.
This monument to the craftsmanship of all that is 1937 boasts all the character you'd expect from its vintage construction. From the intricate crown moldings reminiscent of the debut of the Hindenburg airship, to the hardwood floors that mirror the bustling opening of the Golden Gate Bridge. The living room's fireplace whispers stories of the year Amelia Earhart vanished during her flight – a reminder of the courage that shaped the times.
The kitchen seamlessly blends old-world charm with modern convenience, offering a space where you can create culinary delights while reflecting on the year of the first 'Of Mice and Men' publication. Beautiful backlit glass front cabinets above the working cabinets create a mystique in the kitchen that begs gastronomic delights be created.
The dining room's elegance harks back to the time when the world marveled at Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, as it was first released in 1937 – the year the home was completed. If the original crystal chandelier hanging over the dining room table could talk, it would relish in stories of parties, gatherings, and family mischief – the current owner was lambasted at age 3 for swinging from the chandelier! Built-in corner display cabinets are the embellishment of the grandeur found throughout the home.
Climbing the sumptuous curved main staircase to the upstairs, the bedrooms embrace you with the charm of days gone by, as you uncover tales of resilience from the same year as the infamous Hindenburg disaster. A short walk down a hallway from the main second floor landing is a long-lost luxury – the maid’s quarters. Useful today as a wonderful guest suite or in-law suite, it adds charm to the house with its own private staircase from the main floor.
Outside, a huge lawn fills the picturesque landscape, bordered by towering deciduous oaks and maples and the towering pine trees fill in the spaces. Hidden treasures await, as a family fireplace is hidden in the woods, as well as a gated stone fountain with a quaint seating area! This outdoor space truly is a revelation in today’s hectic paced world, a place where relaxation and nature calm the soul.
