Tucked away on 1.7 acres in Richmond Heights, this brick estate offers seclusion with its lush surroundings. Wake up every morning inside the renovated and expanded master suite, then throw back the curtains on the wall of windows to let in natural light. Move from the master bath, with a walk-in frosted glass shower and soaking tub, to the custom dressing room to ready yourself for the day. During your day of leisure, you can take to the tennis court for a little friendly competition or lounge poolside. Hunt up snacks in the swank kitchen, but never stress about a messy outdoor-to-indoor transition, with laundry rooms available on each floor. While your suits are drying, spend time warming up in the hearth room beside the modern floor-to-ceiling fireplace. Finally, settle in with the family and enjoy a movie or favorite show on a projection screen found in the lower-level family room.

This 5-bedroom, 4 full-bathroom and 1 half-bathroom home in Richmond Heights is listed for $1.25 million.
