HER Real Living in the news with listing of the area’s oldest home

Gideon Hart Homestead, Westerville, Built in 1820

Those interested in history, or just fascinated by some of the beauty that comes with historical woodwork would be pleased to hear that HER Real Living’s latest listings include one of the oldest homes in the area. So old that when it was built Jefferson was president, slavery was law, and The Civil War was still far in the future.

Gothic Revival Home, New Albany, built in 1825

Listed on the National Historic Site as the oldest home in Westerville. Beautifully restored and updated. The Gideon Hart home includes the original 5 Inch plank Ash hardwood floors and Lush landscaping with enormous old trees. The Gideon Hart Home and HER’s listing of the Gothic revival home in New Albany were recently featured in an article in The Columbus Dispatch about the more than 20 homes for sale in Central Ohio built before 1840.

The Gothic Revival New Albany home started as a one-room schoolhouse erected around 1825. The home was expanded, probably in the middle of the 19th century, in a Gothic revival style.

The interest in these homes that draws press like The Dispatch as well as potential buyers lies in their history and the authenticity that comes with it. HER Real Living’s Marylin Vutech -“It does have all the beautiful upgrades you would see in a new build, but the spaces are still those you’d find in an old house, such as no walk-in closets. These aren’t generic spaces like you’d find in a new four-bedroom, 21/2-bath home.”
