Cobb owned the historic home. It was the first house to have electricity in Waterville.  Miss Waffle’s father, a worker on the Pumpkin Vine Trolley line, which ran at the bottom of the hill on the River Road property fell in love with her mother and courted her while making trolley runs.  He would get off & visit her while the conductor took the car into Waterville.   Mr. Cobb ran a fish hatchery down on the flats.   The home features a view of the river property and the Maumee River from all glass windows in the rear of the home.  It boasts it’s exceptionally large rooms, beautiful expansive property on the river, and serene privacy in the back of the house.  It features a huge formal living room with gas fireplace, large family room with gas fireplace (originally the formal dining room in this stately home), sunroom, informal dining room, den that could easily convert to a first floor bedroom, large deck to the pool area, hardwood floors, 4 bedrooms (or 3 bedrooms, plus dressing room), two full baths, 2 cedar lined closets, half basement, and on the second story landing a hand painted river scene mural painted over 30 years ago by a member of the Stranahan family.   Although this home boasts such history, the home has been updated over the years to keep up with all modern desires including Pella Windows, Siding, Sealed basement, Newer Furnace and ductwork, along with much more.  Call Victoria today to view this fantastic home, 419-460-5587.
