The other half lives well. In fine houses with neatly kept yards, picket fences and flower gardens. You’ll find their houses in neighborhoods from Limaville to Wilmot and everywhere in between.
Then, there are the select few. They’re the envy of the other half. They live in homes you’ll see only on Sunday drives through the back roads of Lake and Jackson townships, or behind the gates of Glenmoor Country Club and Congress Lake Club.
Most of these palatial homes are owned by area doctors, lawyers and business moguls. More than two dozen Stark County houses are valued at more than $1 million by the county auditor. The most expensive is $2.3 million, a lake-house estate with seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms and seven fireplaces.
The following pages spotlight 10 of Stark County’s most exlusive homes, according to the Stark County auditor’s information.
From the stately Tudor in Congress Lake to a newly built home in Jackson Township, Stark County has quite a few gems to show off. Go ahead, take a peek.

Take a peek inside one of Stark County’s most exclusive homes and meet the owners, David and Nancy McCauley.
“This is our paradise,” said Nancy McCauley, referring to their Congress Lake home built in 1927. “It’s kind of a unique place.”
The McCauleys purchased the home in 1986, after it had sat empty for 15 years. They are just the third owners of the home.
Since then, they’ve done major renovations. In 1991, the McCauleys added a 1,900-square-foot ballroom (seen on cover), as well as some other upgrades.
“We just try to keep it original,” Nancy McCauley said. “We wanted to keep it an authentic English Tudor.”
Congress Lake is a private golf and country club located near Hartville.
