About The Summit in Brecksville
The Summit is a private enclave of six custom-built luxury estates in Brecksville, Ohio. Homes are nestled around the cul-de-sac street of Summit Circle with 1+ acre lots offering wonderful woodland views and privacy. Homes in The Summit were built by Gillespie Homes and Petros Homes from 1996-2008.
These homes offer 5,100 to 10,000 square feet with 3-5 bedrooms and 3.5-5.5 bathrooms.
Homes on Summit Circle are exquisitely appointed with quality craftsmanship and premium finishes throughout including open floorplans, dramatic two-story foyers with open staircases, hardwood flooring, limestone and marble tile flooring, custom ceilings, two-story/vaulted great rooms with fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows, butler’s pantry, formal dining rooms and living rooms, private dens with built-ins, large laundry rooms with utility tubs. Granite or quartz kitchens feature an oversized island, tile backsplash, breakfast bar seating, walk-in pantry, top-of-the-line appliances, dinette area, and morning/hearth room. First or second-floor owner’s suites include a sitting area, fireplace, walk-in closets, and spa-like baths with custom tiled walk-in showers, soaking tubs, dual vanities, and enclosed lavatories. Finished lower levels are coveted walk-outs complete with media rooms, kitchens/kitchenettes, bars, wine cellars, and exercise rooms. Homes offer 2 to 4 car attached side-entry garages.
Large homesites range from 1.02 to 2.04 acres and each is heavily wooded and private for your own serene park-like setting. Backyards include professional landscaping with paver retention walls, water features, firepits/fireplaces, verandas, and custom patios and/or decks.
Even the land surrounding this development is heavily wooded. Directly north of this development is a roughly 10-acre parcel of forested common land owned by the neighboring community of Chippewa Hills. The land bordering The Summit directly west and northwest is a forested area behind the Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School football field.
On the right side of the entrance is a stacked stone and masonry sign. Each side of the street has large landscape beds with mature broadleafs, pines, and landscape stones. Landscaping continues up the hill to the cul-de-sac, providing privacy from the main road.
Several homes around Summit Circle have landscaping and brick retention walls that extend to the cul-de-sac, making for a gorgeous entry.
There are curbs on both sides of the street, but no sidewalks.
Homeowner’s Association (HOA fees) are approximately $119 monthly.
This neighborhood is serviced by the Brecksville–Broadview Heights City School District, which is consistently rated as one of the best school districts in the state.
