Sandusky villa description

The Milan Villa is a very unique, private, 4 story stone structure. This 10,000 square foot destination wedding venue has slate and wood floors, 3 fireplaces, and very large rooms. The villa sits on 26 acres amidst 200+ acres of rolling hills, forest, and our own river, with an interesting dam and stone pump house. Many private nature paths and a vineyard. A large several acre parking area great for camping. The kitchen features a 62' Wolf stove, 2-drawer refrigerator, and granite counters. There is a separate butlers pantry with a high volume ice maker, large Subzero refrigerator, and second dishwasher. We have a large living room, dining room, library, sunroom, and upstairs ballroom. Many crystal chandelier, high quality artwork, and six foot grand piano. This property is in the woods. If wildlife and lack of cable TV and high speed internet bother you, the Villa is not for you.

The villa is available most weekdays and on weekends when we are not having weddings. We are a birders paradise with songbirds, hawks, and great blue herons. We also have many mammals, including deer, fox, and coyote. Photographers rent our villa for photo shoots. You must see to believe. This is a perfect venue for parties and family reunions. We have many and varied nature trails and unique gardens. The local back country roads are a bicycle enthusiasts paradise.

Most people do not want to leave the property. However, there are many interesting things in the local region. We are one hour from downtown Cleveland. We are about 4 miles off the Ohio turnpike. Catch an Indians, Cavs, or Browns game. Cleveland Heights, Severance Hall and University Circle are about 90 minutes drive. The Cleveland Zoo and Rain Forest are world-class, and about 75 minutes away. Both the Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University Medical Centers are about 90 minutes away. The airport is one hour to the baggage claim.

Oberlin is about 30 minutes with more annual concerts than days in the year. Many other fun events are going on all summer in this beautiful college town, also famous as an important underground railroad stop. Milan is birthplace to Thomas Edison, and the perfect 'sleepy midwest town'. Expect large parades on patriotic holidays. A museum complex downtown features Edison's birthplace and the Edna Roe Newton Museum, a tribute to the original owners of the Villa with many original pieces and pictures of what was then the Newton Estate.
