This 5-bedroom, 4-full and 1-half bathroom home in Richmond Heights is listed for $1.595 million.

This 3-story Arts and Crafts manse in the historic Hampton Park neighborhood is truly one-of-a-kind. Listed on the Historic Registry, the residence has been re-imagined to have an atmosphere like that of a European auberge. The outside of the home is almost as fabulous as the inside, thanks to the brick walls, patios, walkways, lily pond, gardens, fountain and pool. The outdoor barbecue area has an additional fireplace for S’mores on chilly nights, and—through a covered arbor of wisteria—adjoins the pool house, with a common area, kitchen, bathroom and 3-car garage. Enter the home through the vestibule foyer, which opens to the gently-gilded formal living and dining rooms. You’ll love hosting weekend brunches for family and friends in the kitchen, hearth and breakfast area, next to the paneled and beamed great room. Stunning details such as ivory walls, French doors, picture moldings and large fireplaces add sophistication to the space.
