Designed by famed Roy G. Firestone who designed some of the beautiful Akron, Ohio homes. I love the roofline on this one! Needs some updating, but it could be a stunner! Really like all of the built in drawers in the bedrooms. Six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 3,000 square feet. Located on one acre. $199,00
