Own a Piece of Sheffield History – the Matthew Webber House

While out shooting fall foliage in Sheffield on Sunday, I noticed that this house on Old Colorado Avenue was for sale. It's located on the corner of old Colorado Avenue and Lake Breeze.

The house was featured in the Summer & Fall 2013 edition of the Village Pioneer. Editor Charles E. Herdendorf, Ph.D., provided a detailed history of Lake Breeze Road in that issue.

According to the magazine, the house was apparently built in the 1880s by Matthew Webber. The "large Folk Vernacular-style farmhouse" has five bedrooms and an original fireplace. From the 1930s into the 1950s the house was owned by Michael and Rosella Bruder, who operated a dairy farm there.

Read more about the house here.

And in case you're interested, the house is listed by Virginia Lindsay, Realtor, part of "The Lindsay Team" at Keller Williams Greater Cleveland West and Sell and Rent Cleveland.
