Modern brownstone on site of historic church asks $725,000: House of the Week

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Fifth Church of Christ Scientist, one of the most beautiful churches in the city, stood on the corner of W. 117th and Lake Ave. for nearly 90 years. When chosen to redevelop the site, Brickhaus Partners erected 11 brownstones that are decidedly modern, yet pay homage to the church with architectural details like a brick exterior, arched windows, French doors and balconies.

One of those townhomes, completed in 2018 with 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms in nearly 2,000-sq. ft. plus a rooftop deck, recently hit the market with an asking price of $725,000.

“This home offers the ideal luxury living experience,” says Howard Hanna listing agent Aaron Powers. ” The townhome’s exterior was designed to beautifully complement the history before it while providing maximum energy efficiency toward a sustainable future. The interior was meticulously curated to present a unique modern touch on the classic traditional style of the neighborhood.”

Indeed, the owners spent an additional $125,000 in upgrades, and premium finishes and surfaces. You can see them in the custom shelving and wainscoting in the ground-level den. Head upstairs to the open-concept, light-filled main living area, with its hardwood floors, fancy light fixtures, fireplace, built-ins and balcony. The kitchen has high-end quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplash and a large island.

The glass-enclosed floating staircase leads to the master suite with en suite bathroom and walk-in closet, plus two additional bedrooms, another full bathroom and laundry room. Another staircase leads to the rooftop deck, which provides plenty of space for entertaining, not to mention stunning views of the neighborhood.

Located within walking distance of Lake Erie at Edgewater Park, shopping and restaurants, purchase of the home includes a tax abatement until 2035.
