HILLS AND DALES — It’s not unusual to find exclusive housing available in one of the region’s smallest high-end communities.

Right now one of the village’s more prominent properties remains on the block.

The home of former U.S. ambassador to Germany, W.R. “Tim” Timken Jr., is listed at $3.2 million with DeHoff Realtor Joanna Belden.

Timken has owned his property since the late 1960s. An indoor swimming pool was added to the original 7,500-square-foot Tudor Revival house during the 1970s, then in 2009 there was an expansion and remodel. The house is 14,000 square feet with nine bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.

There are about 110 houses in the Hills and Dales. Mayor Mark Samolczyk said several properties — sometimes as many as a dozen — might be listed with realty agencies at one time.

The community has older housing but remains attractive to buyers.

“It’s a beautiful area,” Samolczyk said of the community of about 220 residents. “With older homes, you have to find the right person.”

The improvements at the Timken residence were featured in a Cleveland Plain Dealer article published in 2013. “Architecturally this house is a masterpiece,” Belden said of the Timken residence.

Belden said finding a buyer who appreciates the history and artistic intent of the house can be a challenge.

While the Internet makes it possible to market a house worldwide, she anticipates someone from the region, possibly with ties to Hills and Dales or Stark County, will eventually buy the property.
