This unique home is so charming townspeople took to calling it "The Pretty House." Before that, it was widely known as "The Castor House". It was the childhood home of Annie Castor Glenn, wife of Marine Corps pilot, astronaut and U.S. Senator John H. Glenn Jr. The house was designed in the distinctive Spanish Bungalow style by Annie's father, Dr. Homer Castor, prominent local dentist who had an outstanding eye for architecture. Annie passed away at age 100 in May 2020. The love story of John and Annie Glenn, who met as children, is legendary. She was born in Columbus and the family moved to New Concord in 1923. This house was built in 1927 and the current residents are the fourth owners. They have meticulously and respectfully restored and renovated the home, which today is a breathtaking showplace right down to its original hardwood floors and many original hardware bits and pieces. It sits on a lovely lot of an acre-and-a-third with an attractively-designed fish pond. The 3-bdrm house has gas heat and a new central air conditioning system. In the kitchen are all the expected amenities and space, along with granite countertops and ample cabinets. There is much storage space throughout the house and attic, which circumvents the entire top floor. The dry basement has plenty of room for workshops or crafter space. This home exudes the rare combination of both beauty and history and is move-in ready. Welcome home to "The Pretty House"!
