While this almost 3,600 square foot Ohio property is well known in the area, for the first time in two decades, it was actually listed for sale to the public in October of 2023. It didn't take long for someone to see the value of this place, as it sold a month later! As you can see from the photos, this home is truly a work of art.

Zillow has the property located off of Cascade Rd in Painesville, Ohio listed for $400,000 and sold for $380,000. Not a bad price for a home with such individuality. Allow us to fill you in on some special features of this property.

Ohio Sculpture House Facts and Features:

  • First off, it's five bedrooms, three bathrooms and sits on a little over a acre of wooded property.
  • It's a piece of architecture created by Wayne Trapp, and named "Chant du Cygne" meaning "Swan Song". Although, some refer to it as the Flintstone House.
  • It was designed to look like a rock formation bulging out from the earth.
  • It was built in 1970 to be a playful, organic space for a family with eight kids.
  • All hand-sculpted using foam, concrete, and wires.
  • Has many embedded features such as sleeping spaces, a ball pit for kids, and a grotto tub.

With a home this distinctive, there's no wonder why it's been featured on MTV and HGTV. When it became available to the public, sellers and neighbors were excited to see the home restored, according to News5 Cleveland.
