Magnificent 3.5 acre Lakefront Estate! Built in an era when craftsmanship, extravagance, luxury and entertaining were the focus of Cleveland society. As you approach this architectural masterpiece you are greeted by the hand forged iron gate accompanied by the gatehouse complete with kitchen, living space, 2 bedrooms and 1 bath of it’s own. You can envision the grandeur and decadence of social life in Cleveland at the turn of the century,  as you travel along the circular drive, take in the grounds and view this Brick Tudor that overlooks Lake Erie.  Your introduction to  this stunning mansion begins with the over-sized, hand carved door that opens into the grand entry hall with incredible beamed ceiling, paneled walls of tiger oak and walnut, teak floors with decorative inlay, intricate hand carved moldings and grand double staircase showcasing more of the amazing craftsmanship and carvings. The main floor was designed for elaborate entertaining in mind.  The Dining room with unique and beautiful molded ceilings, grand fireplace and original sconces and lighting can easily accommodate 20-30 guests and comes complete with butlers pantry equipped to service royalty. When the dinner party is complete, open the elaborate leaded glass french doors to the observatory with floor to ceiling leaded glass windows or linger in the living room, den or atrium, all with the same period details and luxurious finishes.  The kitchen has been modernized to service today’s needs but blends perfectly with the charm and character of the home.
