Nestled among the many historic homes that line Cleveland, Tennessee’s North Ocoee Street sits one of its most admired homes, ”Maple Shadows”. The home was constructed in 1854 and is steeped in the history and growth of Cleveland since its founding. During the Civil War, it served as a hospital. The current owners, whose family acquired the property in 1973, now wish to usher in a new chapter for this home and a hopeful restoration of one of Bradley County’s oldest historic homes. Situated on almost 2 acres, this property also offers a building opportunity with ample space to the right of the house to build another home and complement the current structure with a pool, tennis courts, or additional gardens. The home’s immediately noticeable Greek Revival columns were added in 1930 and add an immediate grandness to the predominantly Colonial architecture of the rest of the exterior.
Equally grand is the impressive foyer with an elegant staircase and a floor-to-ceiling Pier Mirror. Hardwood floors and beautiful architectural details and millwork can be found throughout the interiors. The main floor consists of a parlor and study to the right that share direct access through the door to the left of the fireplace. A powder room with a built-in ladies vanity table and Saloon doors is situated between these rooms.
The dining room, breakfast room, and kitchen span the left side of the main floor. The dining room features built-in china cabinets and shelving for ample storage and display. A door in the dining room leads through the butler’s pantry and breakfast room into the kitchen. The sunroom spans the back of the home and overlooks the circular driveway and the garage. The back door is found off of the kitchen and sunroom that opens onto the antique bricked patio and exterior covered walkway to the garage which houses a laundry room, an additional half bath, and storage room.
Once upstairs, four large bedrooms surround the spacious landing that features two paneled, built-in cedar closets. Each bedroom shares use of the two full bathrooms upstairs. All four bedrooms have ample closet space, large windows allowing for beautiful natural light throughout the day, and space for sitting areas in each. A door beneath the staircase on the main floor leads down to the cellar and the home’s mechanical systems. Beautiful maple and oak trees surround the home along with traces of the former rose garden and kitchen herb garden that spanned along the left of the house.
