This 115-Year-Old Bratenahl Mansion Once Owned by a Famed Cleveland Architect is Now a Million-Dollar Fixer-Upper


If you've always wanted to live close to the water and are looking for a project to restore a once great house, and you happen to have a spare $1,100,000 laying around, we've found the perfect home (9619 Lake Shore Boulevard) for you. While the exterior of the home remains grand and stately, the inside clearly needs some love.

The home previously belonged to famed Cleveland architect Richard Fleischman, who passed away earlier this year, and his wife Helen, who passed in 2013. Fleischman was the winner of numerous architectural awards throughout his storied career and he and his wife hosted over 30 fundraisers at their grand Bratenahl estate.
