3003 Euclid Heights Boulevard

This home is a loving work-in-progress. The current owners, who purchased the house three years ago, admit to being “preservation activists.” They are passionate about restoring and maintaining turn-of-the-century buildings in Cleveland Heights. In fact, their reason for buying this particular house was its age.
Dedicated tour-goers will be fascinated to see what goes into a complete renovation of a 100-year-old home. The current owners have agreed to put this house on the tour so that people can see the restoration in progress. The completely finished home will be on the tour again in 2006.

Consisting of an eclectic mix of antiques and various collections, the furnishings in this home are a nod toward the Victorian era, a slight head-bob toward the Colonial and a wink of the Arts and Crafts movement.

The first thing you will notice is the gorgeous porch. It has been completely redone to capture the original look, including the rafter tails and pier lights. This addition gives the porch an Arts and Crafts look.

Most of the woodwork throughout the home is original. The wood which had to be replaced has been recycled from other homes.

The first bedroom at the top of the stairs has not been remodeled to give a before and after look. The bedroom and sitting room at the front of the house (also on the second floor) have both been completed and feature warm, rich, Victorian era colors and furnishings.

Look closely at the fireplace in the second floor sitting room. The mantle had been removed and placed in the foyer of the home. The current owners discovered this change. They took the mantle out of the foyer and returned it to its original location.

The second floor bathroom has been completely redone in turn of the century style. All of the tile was completely redone (I watched it go in!) And, the bathroom cabinetry was built by the current owner.
At press time, much of the first floor was unfinished. When completed, the first floor will feature coffered ceilings. There will also be many changes in the kitchen, front parlor and first floor sitting room to look forward to in 2006, don’t miss it!


Watch For:

  • Hand painted detail on front porch
  • Ceilings in first floor hall – will be coffered in 2006
