This stately Colonial Revival, Roundwood Manor, was completed in 1928 and sits on more than 7 verdant acres in Hunting Valley, Ohio, just 20 minutes from Cleveland city center. The Van Sweringen brothers, prosperous developers of well-known Shaker Heights, Ohio, commissioned noted architect Philip Small to create this enduring country estate, with tennis court and 60-foot indoor mosaic tile swimming pool, complete with his and hers dressing rooms -- all still in use and enjoyed today. Enter from the elegant columned portico into the grand three-story skylighted central hall. This leads to a two-story living room with vaulted cathedral ceiling with hand-hewn beams. French doors open to the garden. The first floor provides other rooms for entertaining on a grand scale, including the formal dining room and the more informal wood paneled family room. The home also offers intimate cozy spaces for family and friends to simply relax, such as the warm inviting Dickens library, the wood-paneled bar or the airy sunroom. On the second floor, the expansive owner's suite with fireplace and sitting room provides two bathrooms and two dressing rooms. For comfort, each room in the house, including the additional 4 main bedrooms and 4 guest bedrooms in the guest wing has its own thermostat to control the heat and central air conditioning. Throughout, the woodworking, moldings, ceilings, paneling and 9 working fireplaces are themselves works of art, featured in such publications as Architectural Digest and Country Life of America. The lush treed and landscaped setting offers ample privacy on what was once a 600-acre working farm, now the prestigious Daisy Hill enclave, with its signature white fencing. This home is yours to occupy and enjoy as you write a new chapter to its compelling history. Note that the home provides the potential for the owner to rent one or more complete suites of rooms in the separate wings of the home. The income would very likely offset taxes and much of the annual upkeep of the home. Additionally, tax incentives could well be available due to the historic nature of the home.
