Buying a lifestyle. In 1906 on a warm summer day a prominent Cleveland family was boarding the Eastern Ohio Traction interurban to spend for a few days in their newly built Greek revival retreat in a New England style countryside recently developed by the Maple Leaf Land Company. That lifestyle exists today in the unique location of this house whose owners have maintained and adapted it to the present in a manner that retains the true character and respect of its historical past. The house is insulated from a quiet road, frequented more by people walking and bicycles than automobiles, by a small swath of woods. The woods directly across the road from the house still contains the road bed of the interurban. The most noticeable characteristic of this location is the silence, accentuated by the wind in the leaves. Notwithstanding, the remote character of its location, it is minutes from major grocery stores, a hospital and other services. Similarly, quick access to the 271 expressway makes trips to Cuyahoga Valley National Park, downtown Cleveland, Hopkins Airport, the West Side of Cleveland and Eastern counties easy and quick. Yet, ease of access to all these modern conveniences does not detract from the fact that returning home is returning to the best elements of a historical past. The slower pace of life, the proximity to nature and the distinguishing features of this house that make it inherently unique, not superficially different.
