Home of the Month Announcement
The July 2022 Home of the Month, sponsored by the Marietta Board of REALTORS®,
is this home located at…
814 Clement Avenue in Belpre
The Marietta Board of REALTORS® would like to congratulate
Charles and Loretta Striblin
The Striblin’s purchased their home located at 814 Clement Ave. in 2005 when they decided they wanted to live closer to the city. A big factor for them was being able to have a double lot and that’s exactly what they found. Though the home was in rough shape when they purchased it, Charles and Loretta had a dream of bringing it back to life. 814 Clement Ave. was a small 24 x 26 house built in 1939 that had a dirt floor basement, a fuse box with only two fuses for the entire house, no AC, and only stoves for heat. Now the house has over 1700 sq ft with the additions that were built on and new… well… EVERYTHING inside and out. Over the years many people have asked Loretta which contractor she hired to do the work and her response shocked many people. She responds “ All of the credit belongs to my husband Charles, my brother-in-law and sister (Lawrence and Barbara Kelly) and me. A lot of people don’t believe me when I tell them that, but it’s true. We have put in a lot of work and it was definitely worth it”. Loretta has definitely earned the right to kick her feet up, sitting in her screened in porch she has nicknamed the “Florida room”, and accept this award for being the home of the month. Congratulations again!
