1920 Cleveland Heights mansion asks $1.4M: House of the Week

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — Designed by New York-based architect Linn Kinne in the early 20th century, the mansion at 3145 N. Park Blvd. has seen its share of history. The home

was once owned by Case Western Reserve University, which used it as its president’s residence. “It has certainly hosted countless events,” says Howard Hanna’s Geoffrey

Hoffman, who has the property listed at $1.4 million. The architecture is a mix of colonial revival and arts-and-crafts styles with Italian and French influences, he says

while noting the property’s unique concrete stucco exterior and decorative tile inlays. “There’s a circular drive, portico, gorgeous gardens and even a hidden tennis court.

With so many beautiful features it’s hard to pick a favorite,” Hoffman says. “Mine is the colonnade fountain and dramatic tiered garden with stone walls and stairs.” The

interior is equally impressive, boasting grand spaces and a perfect flow for both entertaining and everyday living. “It’s both a showpiece and a comfortable place to live,”

he adds. “The magnificent main hallway with dual staircase is simply dreamy.” The home sits on nearly two acres of land, making it one of the largest private residential

lots in Cleveland Heights. It has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms (five full) in nearly 7,200 sq. ft. of living space plus a 400-sq. ft. finished basement and a coach house

with an apartment over a three-car garage.
