It's a real treat to come across a well-preserved supercentenarian (that's something that's been around for , word-of-the-day lovers), and this Cincinnati Victorian home is no exception.
The palatial seven-bedroom estate was first built as a wedding present from William Proctor (co-founder of Proctor & Gamble), to his daughter Olivia. In addition to the endlessly delightful touches, from the gabled brick facade to the hunter green vintage stove, the architects made some inspired choices.
For instance, one room contains 13 types of wood, — one from each of the original 13 colonies, folklore says. Plus, there are 13 fireplaces, though only two actually work these days.
Since the home has maintained many of its original details (a claim certain Real Housewives a third of this beauty's age definitely can't make), it's earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, it's , and the owner hopes to find a buyer that will appreciate the home's past, and carry it honorably into the next 142 years.
