BATH, Ohio — Nestled on an acre and a half of lush, green woods in Bath, Ohio is a super secluded three bedroom ranch.
“The house was built in 1952. It’s almost 2,200 square feet. There’s an updated kitchen, granite countertops, higher end appliances,” said listing agent Gregory Greco, with Keller Williams Realty.
The house overlooks a picturesque landscape, complete with a pond and walking trails.
It boasts both space and character.
“Perfect for entertaining. The rooms flow, this room could be a library or office space. And off of this, we have a greenhouse,” said Greco.
A perfect forest hideaway.
“In the greenhouse is an atrium with great lighting. There’s some plants, a nice finished floor, and we can walk right onto the grounds,” added Greco.
What is not immediately disclosed on the seller’s website is the home has a history.
It is the childhood home of notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
“Some people are not going to want any part of it. Some people want a part of it. But there have been families that have lived here since that happened. The home has transferred a number of times,” said Greco.
The home on West Bath Road is where Dahmer grew up and also killed his first victim.
The home is listed at $329,000.
“You have to have a pre-approval or proof of funds that you can purchase the house at the listed price if you want to come look at it. This is not a museum. This is someone’s home,” said Greco.
And it could be yours, complete with amenities galore, if you can look past the horrific history.
“It’s very cool, very laid back. It’s a nice place that feels very calm and very secluded,” added Greco.
