Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Maumee, Ohio

By RetroRuth

Thank you to redheadrevamp on Instagram for sharing this house and making me aware of it’s marvelous bathroom.


This home is located at 903 Key Street, in Maumee, Ohio. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and is approximately 2500 square feet. It was built in in 1949 and the asking price is $139,000. It is listed by NORIS MLS, and you can see the current listing here on Zillow. From the listing:

Spacious brick home with enclosed front porch, rear covered porch with partial fenced yard. Eat-in-kitchen, fireplace in LR & bedroom/den. Large rooms. Additional living quarters or 4th bedroom – MIL suite which features efficiency kitchen with full bath & private entrance with access to house makes for multi use area. Pictures were taken prior to painting.

So, positives are that the glorious pink bathroom is untouched. Also, the fun exterior and the family room. That family room fireplace is really nice. The living room fireplace was painted, but at least is still there. Most of the original kitchen cabinets are there too, so those could be restored. And hopefully they just moved the cabinets they cut out to the garage or something and they didn’t get rid of them. Overall, this wouldn’t be too bad of a restore! You would need some new windows, though. Thanks again to redheadrevamp for sharing this one!

    I love it. And so affordable! With the money saved on that reasonable mortgage, the kitchen could be restored to the glorious ’40s. The archways from room to room are wonderful, too, as are the closets with drawers underneath. How sensible is that? I’d use the MIL suite for a paying tenant and — VOILA! — more money to invest in the house. Of course, the pink bathroom is to die for.

    I would love to know what kind of light fixtures were in the bedrooms. I know ceiling fans are practical, yet for the past 30 or so years a treasure trove of interesting ceiling lights have been lost due to ceiling fans — mostly Victorian-looking fans!

    A lot of off-the-shelf big box remuddling choices in light fixtures, countertops, and floors, but thank heaven that glorious bath and kitchen cabinets are untouched. It looks like the mantel has recessed lights, the better to light up your chalkware figurines.
    You’re right about the windows. Those metal windows suck the heat right out of the house.

    Charming house. The bathroom is beautiful, but that style sink on a cabinet doesn’t quite look right; did anyone else notice? I’m so glad they didn’t go too crazy with the gray paint. These old houses look so dreary when they try to “update” them in gray when they have so much charm to offer a buyer. A very sweet house and so affordable.

      Yes I did. Not too attractive. It looks like the sink is probably correct and original. It would have been open underneath on legs. It has been boxed in to create a vanity for storage. Needs to be removed and allow the sink to stand on its own!

    If this home got some love, it could be restored to its original glory.
