You're 100% right, this area has loads of untapped potential.

They're also about to perform a massive reconstruction of the marginal roads at the southern end of the neighborhood. Traffic is being re-routed along Western to West Blvd and the marginal road between N Marginal and Western is being completely removed and replaced with bioswale water management basins. The sidewalks are remaining so it will function as a nice little linear park with open green space at the eastern end.

The remaining roads are being rebuilt, scaled down, and gaining protected bike lanes.

This street will now end in a park which I think will be very nice: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.4699...thumbfov%3D100

I know this house is likely beyond your budget, but, for point of reference, it is only 1.3 miles from Presti's in the heart of Little Italy.

Ohio City, Tremont, maybe even Cleveland Heights.

I lived out in Twinsburg-great schools but did not get a return on the value of my home, lost money.

That's a beautiful home for only half a million, but the comments make it sound like it's not in a very good area. How accurate are they?

  • Beautiful home that will lose value every year due to the area. It would be worth a million dollars in a better zip code.
  • Everything not bolted down usually gets stolen!

  • Albeit a beautiful home it is still a huge investment in a highly questionable area. No schools of note, the ghetto knocking on the door just down the street. You can't get swept up in the house, built by Bradley and Watergate circa 1903.(whatever) That should not detract from the reality that the home will NOT retain its value, the neighborhood is done, the community is ghettoized,

I'm more familiar with the areas of Cleveland Hts. even closer to Little Italy.

Those negative comments about the linked house do surprise me, and are worth examining closely for anyone interested in purchasing the house. I constantly wonder if Cleveland Hts. has reached its nadir, and if the neighborhoods with those wonderful old houses will show appreciation in coming decades.

A problem for Cleveland Hts. is that there is a wide disparity in the quality of the housing, much more so I think than in Shaker Hts.

The impression that I get about the Cleveland Hts. school system is that very good students can thrive there, but that much of the student body is a challenge. All based on comments by posters, as I've not examined the stats for Cleveland Hts. schools closely and haven't known anybody who used the Cleveland Hts. schools in the past four decades. My age peers who went to Cleveland Hts. High School greatly enjoyed it.

My point of linking that cleveland.com "House of the Week" was to show that the Cleveland Hts. upscale neighborhood close to University Circle was not a tiny area.

They should turn it into a boardinghouse.

I understand.

I take comments like those with a grain of salt as I know people can overgeneralize an area and areas change for the better as well as for the worse. Some will just be negative.

I'm from NE Ohio and like teacherdad we have talked about living in CLE after retirement. If not full time, possibly for part of the year so I pick up on these threads from time to time.

PD real estate articles always engender the same type of negative, crime-centric, paranoid types of responses when dealing with a Cleveland or Cleveland-adjacent address and I give them minimal weight. "Everything is scary" is a useless mentality in a city. Just look at the comments on the post for that Italiante house on Clinton in Ohio City from a few months ago. The comments treated it as if everyone is being mugged constantly and it was in the middle of a war zone.

The area this house is in is nice. I spend a decent amount of time in this exact area and it's always been very pleasant. I do think areas of CH may not appreciate much further, but this specific area in question is likely going to be one that increases in value as University Circle and Little Italy continue to boom.

That home is pretty sweet. Since I do not plan to live with my kids... A smaller place is just fine, but that style home fits our tastes. We actually have a piece of furniture from my wife's side (Cinci) that is circa "George Washington era" and is some type of corner cabinet with wooden screws. I'd love to find an older place that is in very good condition, but probably 1500 sq. ft. is plenty. I'd rather have money to spend outside the home:
travel
sporting events
theatre

etc.

Thank you for sharing!
