Cool Spaces: 1926 Cleveland Heights home on Heights Heritage Home and Garden Tour (photos, video)
This Colonial Revival home will be featured during the 39th Annual Heights Heritage Home and Garden Tour on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 17-18. A preview party, which includes an early peek inside the homes on the tour, is 6 p.m. to midnight at Ensemble Theatre on Sept. 17. Watch video CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio -- James Graham and husband David Dusek were content. They had just fixed up a 1903 summer house in Glenville and couldn't dream of taking on another complex and challenging renovation project. On a lark, they attended an open house for a house for sale in Cleveland Heights. They decided the house was nice, but nothing special. So Dusek went on a real estate website and found a 1926 Cleveland Heights home on Fairmount Boulevard with a grand staircase and wood-paneled foyer.  "As soon as I walked in, I said it could be a 'wow' house," Graham recalled. But were they ready to tackle yet another historic, yet problematic home, one that needed even more time and money than the Glenville house? The answer was yes. This Colonial Revival home will be featured during the 39th Annual Heights Heritage Home and Garden Tour in Cleveland Heights on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 17-18. A preview party, which includes an early peek inside the homes on the tour, is from 6 p.m. to midnight at Ensemble Theatre on Sept. 17. The self-guided tour of seven homes and three gardens, sponsored by the Heights Community Congress, is from noon to 6 p.m. on Sept. 18. The couple, who got married this month, is eager to share the story of how they saved their crumbling house. Graham and Dusek consider themselves preservationists and wanted to update the home while staying true to its architectural roots. Graham, 50, is an executive vice president at Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. Dusek, who declined to give his age, serves on the board of Verb Ballet and the boards of other nonprofit organizations. The three-story home -- 8,000 square feet with three bedrooms and 31/2 baths -- wasn't vacant but little maintenance had been done in recent years. Renovations took about four years to complete. The couple bought the home in 2011 and moved into the third-floor guest suite while work was completed in the rest of the house. When they ran a bath, water poured through the living room ceiling. "The plumbing was rotted through," Graham recalled. Plumbing, wiring and roofing had to be dealt with first. Two master craftsmen spent six months restoring the original green tile roof with replacement tiles found, after a long search, at a St. Louis salvage yard. IF YOU GO The 2016 Annual Heights Heritage Home & Garden Tour What: Preview party and tour of seven homes and three gardens. When: Preview Party, Saturday, Sept. 17, 6 p.m. to midnight. Home and Garden Tour, noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18. Where: Preview Party is at Ensemble Theatre, 2843 Washington Blvd. Cleveland Heights. You will receive a map when you purchase a tour ticket. Tickets: $125 for Preview Party (includes an early-bird tour of homes and admission to Sunday's home and garden tour.) Tickets for the home and garden tour are $20 through Sunday, Sept. 11 and $25 after Sept. 11. You will receive a map when you purchase your ticket. Heights Congress website: www.heightscongress.org. Once the roof was secure, the kitchen and other rooms could be updated. Workmen reconfigured the space in the cramped kitchen by tearing out a built-in refrigerator, laundry room and closet to let the kitchen flow into the former servants' eating area. Space-gobbling radiators were replaced by heated floors. The kitchen's new French doors lead to a tropical-themed garden where banana trees, the night-blooming sacred datura, philodendron, hosta and black-eyed Susans are surrounded by a winding stone walkway. "We wanted the garden to be informal and relaxed," Dusek said. The formal dining room is large enough to accommodate a custom 10-seat dining table. The room's large windows have wide, charmingly painted cornices that are original to the house. "They are an important architectural feature; we're glad they didn't get thrown out along the way," Dusek said about the cornices. Custom furniture covered with European fabrics, a baby grand piano and artwork purchased near and far are combined in the tasteful living room. The room includes a few visual surprises, such as chairs covered in faux crocodile skin and a ceiling painted to look like the sky. An arrangement of glass blown fruit, resting on a table between matching sofas, was a present from Graham to Dusek. "It feels elegant and gracious," Dusek said, in describing the living room. The dazzling entry hall is where this home delivers a "wow" experience. Rich mahogany paneling surrounds a grand staircase that leads to a landing, where the staircase splits into two and continues to the second floor. Crystal chandeliers are anchored by embellished ceiling medallions. Graham pointed out the organ keyboard in an entry hall alcove, and explained that the organ pipes on the landing are just decorative. The sound comes from hundreds of real organ pipes concealed in a separate room. The stairwell walls are decorated by hand-painted murals of flamingos and other tropical birds, palm trees and flowers, reflecting the couple's love for the tropics. On the second floor, the doors between the bedroom, bath, dressing room and sun porch originally didn't line up, making the space feel chopped up. Renovations realigned the doors so that when they are all open, you can see from one end of the house to the other. Stepping out on the third floor porch, Dusek surveyed his neighbors' immaculate lawns and a nearby home where an addition is going up. He's sure that investing in his soon-to-be century home was the right decision. "People are investing in Cleveland Heights and having a beautiful lifestyle," Dusek said.
