More Christmas In Northeast

Sunday, May 12, 2013

Northeast Mansions Volume 10 - 335 Gladstone Boulevard

 This home was built in 1909.  Tim and Yvonne, the current owners, are doing extensive remodeling and preservation work on the structure.   The home is furnished with items they have collected during a prolonged period  in the Middle East... including time living in Turkey.
                                    The home is fully protected by an advanced alarm system.
 After they had moved in the couple had to be away for a while and during that time a pipe broke and did extensive water damage to the home.   All that has now been repaired.

 Time and Yvonne opened their home for the Scarritt Renaissance Coffee Club on Saturday where a vast repast was laid out in the dining room and guests from the Knotty Rug Company discussed exotic carpets... the care and feeding thereof.... fascinating.   Afterward Yvonne conducted a tour of the house.

Northeast Homes Tour Part 2

 Charles B. Leach Mansion/Garfield Heights
This High Victorian Queen Anne style home was built in 1887 for lumbar baron Charles B. Leach.  
The current owners, Michael G. Ohlson, Sr. and Kent T. Dicus, purchased the house in 2003.

 Harvey A. Brower Residence
Current owners, Cisse Spragins & Sean O'Toole
 This home is Italian Renaissance Revival which was popular throughout the United States in the early part of the last century.  It was built for retired umber man Harvey A. Brower who passed away before its completion in 1910.  His widow and two daughter-both married to doctors, moved in upon it's completion.
 Walls are three courses of bricks thick-14 inches.
 The current owners are very active in the Scarritt Renaissance Neighborhood and estimate that their restorative work is about 30% complete.  The home used to have a porch on the front... and plans are for that to be restored.

 The latest part of the house to be restored is the dining room, above and below.
