A landmark historic property just steps from the Portage Country Club in Akron, Ohio has been reduced to $3.95 million. The palatial French-styled residence was designed by nationally known Boston architect Charles R. Greco in 1927 for Harvey S. Firestone Jr., son of the founder of the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company, and his wife, Elizabeth. According to The Devil Strip, current owners, Samuel and Judith DiPaola, purchased the property in 1992 before restoring and improving the grounds. The original Louis XVI interiors were restored and include ornate crystal chandeliers, panelled walls, antique marble fireplaces and delicately detailed gilded overmantel mirrors. There’s nearly 14,000 square feet of space with seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a dramatic entry hall with grand staircase and second floor guest quarters. Sotheby’s noted that the original 1.9 acre property has been expanded to 3.29 acres with 933-feet of frontage on Twin Oaks Road. The property hit the market in early-2019 for $8.65 million. It’s on the market for $3.95 million with Ross Lauria of Street Sotheby’s International Realty.
