Property description

This house is a midcentury gem with a great Clintonville location. Set amid a treed neighborhood, it feels more like a country retreat than a city home.

But the house is just 2 miles from Ohio State University, 7 miles from Downtown Columbus.

Or pop onto Rt. 315 or I-71 to zip Downtown to the Franklin Park Conservatory; the Ohio Statehouse; the convention center; and the Ohio, Southern or Palace theaters.

It would be a great base if you are coming to Columbus for summer activities -- the Jazz and Ribs Fest, Red White and Boom!, the Columbus Zoo and more.

For fun, the house is also near Crew Stadium, where visitors could take in a soccer match. It's also just a few miles from the state fairgrounds, the Ohio Expo Center.

The house is also very close to the Wexner Medical Center and its various parts, including the James Cancer Hospital.

It is also near another of Columbus' stellar hospitals, Riverside Methodist Hospital and the McConnell Heart Hospital.

The location is close to Short North activities such as the Gallery Hop and also the convention center.

The house is close to two major bus routes as well as the bike path that follows the Olentangy River north to Worthington or south to Downtown.

At the house, depending on the time of year, you may see red-shouldered hawks; red foxes; barred owls; or a small group of deer that visit regularly to munch the hostas. Squirrels are regulars.

In fall and spring, expert bird-watchers are likely to hear the varied calls of migrating species.

The house is a three-bedroom ranch with gleaming hardwood floors and quirky retro paneling in the dining area.

The dining area is decorated with a restored Heywood Wakefield whale-bone table.

The fully equipped kitchen includes the usual appliances: stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, microwave.

A full set of pots and pans and dishes will allow visitors to cook healthful -- or not so healthful -- meals while in town.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, two closets and an attached bath.

The second bedroom has two twin beds and two closets as well.

The third bedroom is set up as an office with a comfy Aeron chair and a modern desk.

In warm weather, guests may lounge on the back patio near a small pond complete with a stellar Japanese maple.

The house has Wi-Fi but no TV. (Repeat, no TV.)

Cellphone reception can be spotty in the neighborhood.

We love both children and pets, but this house is unsuitable for either. It is not childproofed, and there are many ways for a dog or cat to get into trouble.

Guests staying 5 days or more pay the $145 rate for all nights. The weekend rate applies only on shorter stays. No parties, please.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

Why the Owner Chose Clintonville, Columbus, OH, USA:
Our neighborhood is truly unusual, a ravine within a city that is primarily flat. We have a beech maple forest that attracts a host of animals, yet we are in the middle of a vibrant part of the inner core of Columbus.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house offers the best of both worlds. We have all the conveniences of city life but you'll feel like you are in a serene country getaway.
