Grandeur and Classic Beauty Reign

A private lane leads to a circular brick motor court where the formal entrance of this elegant Hugh Seaver and Phillip Small designed home is located. The main level includes a cozy wood-paneled library with fireplace, a formal dining room with French doors and fireplace and a spacious and bright living room, also with a fireplace. From the living room, French doors lead to a sun room that offers sweeping views of the property. 

An expansive kitchen with hearth room and breakfast nook create an intimate space for everyday living, while the entire main level is perfect for entertaining large groups. The kitchen space also offers a functional laundry area with a laundry chute system that connects to the upper levels of the home. Adjacent to the foyer is a spacious powder room and large coat closet, perfect for receiving guests. 

Abundantly Appointed with Interesting Details and Fine Craftsmanship Throughout

"The current owners loved the historical appeal of this home," says Karen Eagle, Realtor with Howard Hanna. "Built in 1929, the home features authentic millwork, floor to ceiling windows, very wide hallways, fireplaces in most bedrooms, high ceilings and hardwood throughout the majority of the house. In addition, the home offers extensive storage on all levels." 

A beautifully crafted staircase leads to the second floor with:
  • a spacious master bedroom, flanked by two bathrooms and two dressing rooms
  • a second bedroom with private bath
  • a third bedroom with gorgeous woodwork, wood ceiling and private bath
  • two sun-drenched bedrooms that share a Jack and Jill bathroom
  • a linen room that could serve as a craft room

A third floor, which could easily be closed off, offers five additional bedrooms (formerly maids' quarters), a craft room and a bathing room.  A partially finished basement features a paneled family room and pub room with an adjacent powder room.

The property's expansive grounds include gardens, fountains, ponds and a large veranda overlooking the formal gardens. Also on the property: 
  • two guest houses/caretaker cottages, that are currently being used as income producing rentals 
  • a 10-stable barn
  • an in-ground pool 
  • a pool house with full kitchen, two full baths and large great room
  • a gas well on the property supports the entire estate
Extensively updated within the past 20 years, this home was formerly owned by the Holden Family. Katharine Holden-Thayer donated $14.1 million to the Cleveland Foundation, resulting in the Holden Arboretum, which had been a long-time vision of her late father, Albert Fairchild Holden. Her grandfather, Liberty Holden, founded the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
