Colonial Revival Home in Woodsfield

Built by Legendary MLB player "Sad Sam" Jones in 1939!

Welcome to this historic Colonial Revival home in Woodsfield, built in 1939 by “Sad Sam Jones.”  Sellers have tried as much as possible to keep a lot of the original character of the home.  Original hardwood floors throughout the home, they are still exposed upstairs. Original woodwork, original doorbell going up the stairway. Original slate roof.  Per Seller, it is still in good shape and no leaks. Original doors. And all have been well maintained over the years.

Home offers over 2900 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths.  Allow me to help you visually walk through this beautiful home.  As you enter the newer front porch designed to match the front of the house with the stone, enter into the foyer. Looking up the stairway or down the hall to the half bath. To your right and left, nice big archways. To your right, is a huge living room with a gas log fireplace.  As you will see in photos, big enough for entertaining. Look to your left from the foyer, you enter the dining room, which will take you into the kitchen. Original cabinets have been kept and painted white, with new countertop. With walls painted a soft yellow, gives you the feeling of bright, cheery feeling even on a gloomy day.  Half archway opens to a breakfast nook area with French doors that lead you out to the privacy fenced patio. To your right looking at the French doors you will see step down closet and pantry area. From breakfast nook area, looking back through the kitchen, you will see the archway leading to the hallway by the half bath.  Oh, don’t forget to check out the framed in wall spice rack and the laundry chute.  Now that we have circled back around to the half bath, we are passing the basement steps, but we will come back to that.

Let’s go up the original stairway to the bedrooms and full bath.  Once at the top of the stairway, to our left is the smaller of the three bedrooms being 12’2″ X 13’4″, turn right, then left is the full bathroom with tub/shower, linen closet also with a laundry chute and a smaller cabinet for essentials.  Once passed the bathroom, you enter the master bedroom suite that is 13’11” X 29’6″ with a half archway area for your dressing area with a walk-in closet.  Come back to the hallway and walk toward the front of the home to the third bedroom that could also be a master bedroom 11’9″ X 19’4″ offering two closets and then also the entry to the attic.

Heading up to the attic with nice wide steps, the first thing that caught my eye was the beautiful hardwood floors.  Attic has plenty of space for storage or you could finish off and make two more bedrooms.

Ok, let's head back down to main floor to go to the basement.  Across from the basement door is a coat closet, let me add, in an historic home, you are lucky to see as big of closets as this home has and especially a coat closet on the first floor.  Down to the finished basement.  Nice wide steps again. You enter the rec/family room with laminate flooring, paneled walls and a wood burning fireplace.  Over to the unfinished side of the basement offers the laundry hookups with the original soap stone sink, an updated gas forced air furnace in 2013, home does have central air, unit put in 1992.  Updated hot water heater.  Nice dry basement, with plenty of storage space.  Also has the laundry chute catch all with “Sad Sam Jones” name on it.  We aren’t finished yet; from the unfinished basement area you enter into the root cellar with shelving for canning and the breaker box with a surge protector on it.

We can walk out the basement to the back yard to the 18 X 20 garage with a second story for storage.  Then on to one big back yard, especially being in town.  A small garden area currently and an herb garden. But plenty of room for a bigger garden.  Back yard goes all the way back to a concrete slab where a barn used to set.

Home is in the village of Woodsfield with city water and sewage.  Property does have a water well from the days before city water, that is only used for gardening and flowers. Parking is on street or possibly in garage at the back of them home.  Close to many conveniences of town - hair salons, dollar stores, doctor office, banks, restaurants, courthouse, Monroe County Theatre, hardware stores, etc.
