Property description

'Forever House' is owned by 4th-generation Lakesiders who resurrected the former Richards House Annex into a cozy year-round getaway.

Outside, some of the largest porch space in Lakeside awaits you, with full upstairs and downstairs wrap-around outdoor living space.

The first floor features an open floor plan with Kitchen, Dining Room and Living Room as well as office, half bath and full laundry room. There is a bedroom on the first floor with a single bed.

On the second floor is a generously-sized master suite with walk-in closet, over-sized tiled shower and double vanity. This bedroom opens up onto the upstairs front porch. Also on the second floor is a single bedroom (opening onto second floor porch) and double bedroom, along with a full bath featuring clawfoot tub and shower.

The third floor is an open floor plan with a queen bed and two twins along with a full bathroom.

The entire house features dual-zone air conditioning and natural gas/forced air heat. The home was completely gutted and remodeled in 2008, but we retained the charm of the original interior doors and hardwood floors while adding all-new windows, appliances, electrical and more - the best of both worlds!

Forever House is located 2 blocks from Lake Erie and the Lakeside dock. Within easy walking distance are multiple parks with playgrounds, scenic lakefront walks, shopping (season), dining (year-round), tennis courts (seasonal), miniature golf (seasonal), basketball courts, shuffleboard courts and much, much more.

PLEASE NOTE: When staying at Forever House during the summer months, generally Memorial Day through Labor Day, you will be required to buy passes to enter Lakeside for all people 12 years and up. Details are available here: http://www.lakesideohio.com/passes

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We love Lakeside, and spend as much time there as we can. Sarah grew up there every summer, and we have family all over town that we love to come spend time with. We spend a couple weeks a year ourselves in this house, so we know that it will feel like home to you too!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
"Forever House" is a rarity in Lakeside, with all the amenities like central air, spacious living spaces, huge porches and more. We've tried to combine the best of vintage charm with all the modern conveniences. An added benefit is the location - you'll be within 2 blocks of Lake Erie, Hoover Auditorium, Central Park, restaurants, shops, and most of the action in Lakeside.
