Delaware County Houses: History Can Be Yours

31 Aug , 2021  

By 1808Delaware

We don’t know about you, but we here at 1808Delaware are fond of occasional window-shopping… of houses. Delaware County is, of course, home to a rich variety of houses of all types, prices, and sizes. From time to time, almost all of them become available on the market for interested buyers.

That’s the basis for a series here on 1808Delaware called “Delaware County Houses.” With each post, we share a sampling of what is now on the market that fits a particular description. We have no connection with any property or realtor represented.

Today we are looking at “History Can Be Yours.” These period residential properties exude quality and character. Click on any to be taken to a listing site, where additional photos can be viewed. More…

CBRE has been awarded the listing assignment by the City of Westerville for two land parcels that represent the final developable tracts of land within the successful Westar development in Delaware County.
