From the Zillow listing:


Reminiscent of English cottage architecture, this unique home truly embodies the Van Sweringens’ vision for Shaker Heights. This picturesque stone clad dwelling is set on a serene winding street. The charm of the stone columns, and walkways is matched by the equally captivating interior. As if from another time, and another place, the home is filled with gorgeous details befitting a Tudor castle. First floor living areas radiate from the entrance foyer with slate slab flooring and it is heavily trimmed with solid oak. Off of the foyer is the living room with oak cabinetry featuring a stone fireplace nook with prominent hammered metal hood over the hearth. Access to an enclosed private rear porch is through a Dutch door off of the living room. Keeping with the Tudor style are the custom crafted solid wood doors with fitting hardware and the diamond patterned leaded casement windows found throughout the home. An oak staircase leads to the second floor. The Old World theme is carried forward into the spacious main bedroom suite with a fireplace and beamed ceilings. Adjacent to the main bedroom is a Carrara glass tiled bathroom. Two more bedrooms are located on the level as well as another full bath featuring the Carrara glass tile. Off of the rear bedroom is a very private balcony. The third floor has another bedroom and full bath. Someone with vision will enjoy rejuvenating this lovely property. Buyer to assume violations including roof replacement.
