A Historic Home in North Bend with Ties to President William Henry Harrison is Now On the Market


A rare historic property recently entered the market in North Bend, Ohio.

Located about 25 minutes west of downtown, the Aston Oaks English Manor is situated on land once owned by the United States' ninth president, William Henry Harrison. The property was sold to famed horticulturist Dr. John Aston Warder in 1885 by the former president's widow and the home completed construction in 1872.

The eight-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath manor was built using timber from oak, maple and cherry trees from the property and features abundant natural stone work and beautiful landscaping. It sits on over two acres of land.

The home has nine unique fireplaces — one in each room — a hand-carved staircase, original hardwood floors and hand-crafted door knobs throughout. The foyer features a mosaic which was designed by an Italian artist and brought over from France.

The home features panoramic views of the Ohio River from the second and third floor, east-facing rooms.

The land offers a stone Carriage House, which includes a bedroom, full bath and family room.

According to the listing, the historic manor is home to the state of Ohio's largest English oak tree.

The property is on the National Register of Historic Places and is currently zoned as a bed and breakfast.
