Check out the listings for some of the homes in Mentor this week:
8776 Headlands Road: OK, this one isn't going to be for everybody.
After all, a $1.2 million price tag is going to exclude some people.
But, if you have the money, this home has a lot of special features -- starting with 250 feet of frontage on Lake Erie.
The 7-acre lot also provides some privacy.
The 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom main house is 2,742 square feet has an in-law suite, an enclosed porch and other distinctive touches.
There's also a 68-by-32 foot out building that can be used as horse barn. (It's currently used as a hobby shop.)
Check out the photos on the online listing. If nothing else, it's nice to dream.
9353 Kings Hollow Court: Just because you can't afford a million dollar home doesn't mean that you have to live in deprivation.
This 3-bed 3 1/2-bath ranch has a cool finished basement with a wet bar, a screened-in porch with a large deck, a wood-burning fireplace, a walk-in pantry and other cozy luxuries.
8051 Hackberry Drive: This 3-bed, 2 1/2-bath has a lot of unique flourishes that you won't find in a McMansion.
Perhaps, the most striking exterior feature is a lovely mult-tiered deck.
The kitchen includes granite tops, maple cabinetry, center island, custom cooktop and a range hood. The master bedroom has an adjoining glamour bath, his/her closets, skylights, a soaking tub and double shower stall.
And did I mention there are fireplaces in both the kitchen and the great room?
The 2-car garage has a workshop attached to the rear.
7397 Ohio Street: Just because you want a fireplace or a multi-tiered deck doesn't mean you have to spend more than $200,000.
This 4-bed, 2 1/2-bath offers a master bedroom with a private balcony, a two-level deck and a family room with a brick fireplace; and the seller is asking for $175,000.
The property also has a 2-car garage and a fenced-in yard with a garden and a shed.
4854 Brooksdale Road: The asking price was recently reduced on this 4-bed, 1-bath Cape Cod to $106,000.
It has a big eat-in kitchen, formal living room, dining room, 2-car garage and could be right for you.
5682 Chagrin Drive: Buying a foreclosure is always a bit of a gamble but those gambles can pay off, especially when the buy-in is low.
The seller is only asking for $39,900 for this 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom ranch house.
It's a Fannie May property and can be bought with as little as 3 percent down.
