Don Leary and Becky Fuhrman fell in love with a grand home in Rossford built in 1938. The house had great assets but the traffic flow was inefficient and the interior was in disarray. They saw huge potential and spent several years turning it into an Art Deco wonderland. A new floor plan, utilizing the existing garage and turning it into the kitchen, opened up the area and allowed for a spacious dining and great room, perfect for their annual Kentucky Derby party. They enlarged the home with a second floor wing featuring a gallery for Don and added a delightful screened in porch off the master bedroom where they can enjoy the river scenery. The decorating is a combination of transitional and contemporary and is gracious and sophisticated. Unique objects d’art and furniture present a well designed picture. The exterior of the home is Art Deco at its best with clean lines and rounded windows. The eye-catching street number and landscaping finish this striking home.
