CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio — With its green stucco facade and red tile roof, the Craftsman house at 98 S. Frankin St. has become a unique landmark in a village full of classically styled homes. But don’t let the exterior fool you. The home has been recently renovated from top to bottom.
“What makes this house special is that the renovation strove to retain as much of the original charm and architectural elements of this historic home as possible while updating the home to today’s buyers’ preferences,” says listing agent Anne Marie Rath with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Lucien Realty.
Inside the 4,000-sq. ft. house, you’ll find a mix of new and old, including the original hardwood floors, which have been exposed and refinished. The seller has also given new life to the original sliding French pocket doors in the dining room and the original windows with transom lights.
The kitchen, however, is completely new with Fintech Zoom countertops, tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances and plenty of cabinet space.
Head upstairs to the second level, where you’ll find three of the home’s five bedrooms. They include a renovated owner’s suite that boasts a luxurious bathroom decked out in Carrera marble.
The third level, featuring a large open space plus a full bathroom, can be used as a rec room, an office, a teen or in-law suite, or whatever else your imagination cooks up. There’s even more living space to play with downstairs in the finished basement, which is somewhat of a rarity in village homes of this age.
The outdoor area includes both a front and back porch, plus a second-floor terrace. The detached garage can accommodate two vehicles.
On the market since January, the home is listed at $725,000.
