January Real Estate: Luxury in the Heart of Oglebay

Lots of folks in the Wheeling area like to refer to Oglebay Park as “the jewel of the city!” Those same folks love to spend leisure time with their friends and family in the park all year round. And now, Kennen & Kennen Realtors is presenting a unique opportunity to purchase a new listing located right in the heart of Oglebay Park!
The history of this property began when it was built in 1938, but tragically the home suffered a fire in 2017. It has since been rebuilt into an amazing new contemporary two-story home. The property is conveniently located on Route 88, which is a major factor in why it’s so special. An opportunity to purchase a new, but secluded home in the heart of Oglebay Park is rare.
As you can see, the original home that was built on this property in 1938 looks quite different than the current home that was rebuilt in 2017. Now, this home boasts modern amenities and has plenty of room for a growing family or for those that like to entertain.
This home is especially attractive to those who enjoy year-round outdoor recreation. In the winter months, the ski slopes are just across the street, and in the warmer months, you are just a stone’s throw from the Arnold Palmer golf course, the outdoor pool at Crispin Center,  and the Oglebay Tennis Center. Whether the home is purchased as a get-away treat, or for year-round living, it will certainly bring years of outdoor fun and enjoyment.
If you’ve never been to Oglebay Park, it would benefit you to know that it has a long tradition that begin over 100 years ago, as the summer estate of Earl W. Oglebay. The picturesque beauty of Oglebay’s property has now expanded to include 2,000 acres of year-round recreational activities and exceptional overnight accommodations amid the Park’s natural beauty. Today, Oglebay Park is studied by planners worldwide as the only self-supporting public municipal park in operation in the United States. It stands as a successful tribute to Earl W. Oglebay, a notable achievement of the Wheeling Park Commission, and a credit to the many benefactors and organizations involved in its growth.
