Harrison House has been hosting guests as a bed and breakfast for 30 years. But due to COVID-19, the owner of the property is asking for help from the community to help save the business.
A GoFundMe has been set up to help the bed & breakfast with expenses, but the gorgeous Queen Anne-style home has already been listed for sale. Coming in at just under 4,000 square feet, the property could easily continue operating as a bed & breakfast or be converted into a spacious home.
The home was built in 1890 by Amos Soloman, an architect and banker living in Columbus. Over the next 100 years, the property would change hands and be called home by a variety of tenants, until 1990 when it officially became known as the Harrison House Bed & Breakfast.
Right now, the decor and design of the home are distinctly Victorian. It’s a bit of a time capsule, but don’t let the commitment to wallpaper turn you off. Throughout the property, you’ll find charming details like original hardwood floors, cut glass windows, and more. The home is presented by Ken Wightman with Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices American Realty Center and is currently listed for $799,900.
Let’s get in there and take a closer look.
When you first walk in, you’ll probably find yourself wondering if you’ve accidentally hopped through some timey-wimey portal back to the late 19th century.
But don’t worry. You’re still in 2020 (if that’s helpful) and you’ve actually just entered an awesome bed and breakfast.
Whether your dream would be keeping the b&b business going or transforming the property into a home, one thing you won’t be lacking is space.
There’s plenty of room in the kitchen to cook a big meal for friends, family, or guests.
Speaking of guests… the property has 7 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, including a first-floor owner’s suite.
While it’s likely that anyone buying the property will want to make some upgrades, you have to admit that this place has incredible bones, and rich history that’s worth saving.
Located in Harrison West, the home is close to all of many favorite Columbus activites, restaurants, and bars.
