7650 Deerfield Rd, Gates Mills, OH 44040 MLS# 3741075

Prime real estate, in the heart of a highly desirable Northeast Ohio community, is on the market for the first time in 50 years. With the Chagrin Valley Hunt Club bordering the property and the Chagrin River weaving through another section, this property is ideal for equestrian and nature enthusiasts.


"In terms of available property in Gates Mills, it doesn't get any better than this," said Karen Eagle, Realtor with Howard Hanna's Pepper Pike Office. "The location and size of this property make this a rare and exciting opportunity.”


About the Property


Comprised of three parcels totaling just over 20 acres, the property features a six bedroom ranch with five and one half baths. A private drive literally curves over the river (via a stone bridge) and through the woods to the sprawling ranch, nicknamed the “Crow’s Nest” for its position atop a rolling hill.


With its elevation on the hill and its position within the Village of Gates Mills, the property affords some of the best views of the Chagrin Valley in the county.

About the Home


Abundant hardwood, a full walk-out lower level, four fireplaces and several porches grace the home, which has a mid-century feel due to the home’s construction year of 1963, as well as the influences of architect, Frank Almirall and builder, Earl Roark.


Other features inside the home include:

  • A hearth room in the open kitchen and a formal dining room
  • A balcony on the entire north side of the home
  • A den with a fireplace, Murphy bed and an adjacent full bath
  • The lower level has an additional recreation area with a slate floor and six pairs of French doors opening to the spacious front yard

The home’s exterior is constructed of board and batten redwood siding and brick facade. An attached three-car garage has ample storage space above it.


Privacy, space and potential

With a mix of forested areas and open fields, the property is ripe with opportunity to access the outdoors. Horse trails throughout the property easily connect to the Chagrin Valley Hunt Club, the Chagrin River and a stone bridge, built by mason George Brown. The property also features a man-made cement bottom pond, unique species of trees planted throughout the well-maintained property and rolling landscapes.
