The Colony in Rossford is celebrating 100 years and we are taking a peek at the first home in the Colony— owned since 1995 by Pat and Jim Appold. The home, built in 1916 for George Rheinfrank, a noted architect in the area, has had three other previous owners.

The all brick home overlooks the Maumee River with a panoramic view from several  patios and a gazebo. The home’s brick exterior remains as it was built with  modifications to enclose a porch and change the garage area.

The inside of the home has been changed over the years enlarging the kitchen, family areas and adding a dramatic stone enclosure with an indoor pool, used for family parties. Most rooms feature a lovely water view.

The entry features period wallpaper and the home’s traditional furnishings, marble insets, rich wood paneling and tile, is as compelling today as it was 100 years ago.  The dramatic black dining room features a most unusual and eye-catching dining table enhanced by a unique seating arrangement.

While it may be celebrating its centennial celebration, the home in the Colony is a testament to good architecture and exemplary construction.
