Crossing Larchmere from Fine Points, we're going to double back on the other side of the street. In the first block, in the middle of a strip of shops, you'll see Thriftique
, a second-hand store that's always worth a peak inside. There's lots of junk -- old furniture, lava lamps, bean bag chairs, etc. -- but sometimes you'll find an overlooked treasure. I've found hard-to-find books, vintage piano music and notecards, and interesting glassware there. There's a little be of everything.
Leaving Thriftique, you'll see a new building of townhouses about a block away. That's Larchmere Court
. The recently completed building features three-story town homes with roof-top run decks, complete with a view of downtown Cleveland. They also have ground-level garages, balconies overlooking the street, and corner units feature ground level retail space -- perfect for working at home. What's more, the building includes a 100 percent 10-year tax abatement. All this in the middle of the fun shopping and dining found on Larchmere Boulevard.
