Located in Westerville, Ohio, about 25 minutes north of Columbus, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home boasts a lot of midcentury charm. The 1961 listing sits on almost 6 acres on a private lake in Westerville’s Rolling Ridge neighborhood, with forest and water views.
While the home needs some work, it could be simply stunning with the right touch. Designed by Milwaukee architect John Randal McDonald, the nature-focused house features vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, and original hardwood floors complement an extensive use of exposed stone. No fewer than five gas and wood fireplaces make the 4,463-square-foot house feel cozy, and the kitchen features pass-throughs to the large open dining room and living areas.
Built-in cabinets and original bathroom fixtures are ready for a refresh, and the bedrooms also boast large windows with views into the forest. A wraparound deck makes indoor-outdoor entertaining a cinch, and other amenities include a boat dock, two carport spaces, and a storage shed.
If you’ve been looking for a restoration project, 4518 Ravine Drive is on the market now for $600,000.
