VAULTED CUPOLA CEILING!
Beautifully glazed floors with brick lined cupola ceiling. Colonnaded walkway in background of this Paradise Valley luxury home.
CHAGRIN FALLS, OHIO
Ohio luxury home featuring one of the two tourets with spiral staircase that leads to the olympic size indoor swimming pool and tennis court. The stucco on the lower level and tourets were replaced with red brick. The upper level wood siding was completely redone along with the wood fencing on the upper deck.
The lower level, a 5,000 square foot pool room houses an olympic sized swimming pool lined with it's original 1" sq.dutch tiles. It was like uncovering a hidden treasure when we had huge wall grates covering the steam heat system professionally polished to find they were solid copper.
John D. Rockefeller who helped finance some of the Van Sweringen's enterprises was just one of the many famous visitors to this 8 acre estate.
THE BEST PART OF ALL IS THIS HOME IS BACK ON TE MARKET AND CAN BE YOURS FOR JUST UNDER $8,000,000!
BACK ON THE MARKET! THIS COULD BE YOURS!
This 55,000 square foot Georgian home, also known as Roundwood Manor, was once owned by the Van Sweringens brothers. Just a few of their many projects consisted of the building of Cleveland's famous Terminal Tower Building and owning 10% of the nations railroads.
With each of the previous owners came changes. The Stouffers family downsized the existing 54 room estate by eliminating one full wing of guest bedrooms. With Mr. and Mrs. John Fazio of Fisher Foods, came one of the many monumental tasks of central air conditioning along with general renovating.
Then four years of renovation and design, which I truly enjoyed.
PALM BEACH, FLORIDA!
The famous Woolworth Mansion on ocean front property. Three floor luxury home with marble floors, a grand circular staircase in the entry, leaded glass windows, is complete with an elevator and an underground tunnel leading to the private beach.
GORGEOUS FORMAL DRAWING ROOM!
An exquisite Waterford chandelier hanging in the drawing room of this breathtaking Georgian home in Chargrin Falls, Ohio is one of two ever made. The other one is hanging in The Smithsonian Institute. The wall to wall, one piece wool carpet was custom made and designed by Edwards Field's of New York.
What a find when we gently removed the cream color paint that covered these historic hand painted beamed ceilings in this Palm Beach Villa. Leaded glass windows overlook breathtaking views of the ocean on one side and the swimming pool on the other.
The pool house includes an intricately carved wet bar that I designed with an etched mirror for a backwall lined with glass shelves supported with wood carved pillars, all in keeping with the Italian Villa motif. French leaded glass doors on one side overlook the pool, while the opposite side of the pool house overlooks the tennis court.
The pool house also includes a bedroom, full bath, family room, wet bar and kitchen.
