hunting valley masterpiece
1 Valley Ridge Farm, Hunting Valley 44022
This masterpiece was home to former decorative arts curator at the Cleveland Museum of Art, Henry Hawley and his partner, founder and artistic director of Art Song Festival and former head of the voice department for the Cleveland Institute of Music (CIM), George Vassos. When the time came to design it, Hawley and Vassos envisioned something that suited their lives as well has their fondness of the arts. It was not only a place for them to live, but a space to feature their extensive collection of paintings, sculptures and furniture pieces.
Hawley and Vassos enlisted renowned Cleveland architect and 1991 Cleveland Arts Prize winner, Stephen J. Bucchieri to design their home. Bucchieri earned two awards from the American Institute of Architects for this home: AIA Cleveland Honor Award, 1989 & Architects Society of Ohio AIA Honor Award, 1990. This home has also been featured in multiple publications and websites.
