Age: 89Location: Cleveland suburbShaker Heights is an inner-ring suburb of Cleveland full of homes built in the 1910s to 1930s. This one, owned by shakerjaebs, was built in 1925. “I really love homes built in the ’20s with as much character and original details as possible,” she says. She loves her home’s original art tiles from the Moravian Tile Company and Unitile that fill the vestibule and fireplace hearth. There’s also lots of unpainted original wood — bookcases, the staircase, trim, windows and doors. “The third floor has a built-in cedar armoire that everyone refers to as Narnia,” she says. Since the family painted the exterior, replaced the cedar shake roof and painted the first floor, they don’t plan to do any projects this year.
