About Diane Armstrong

After twenty years of growing up on a South Dakota ranch I followed my family to Australia where all but two of us still reside. I came to Cleveland in 1972, so Cleveland has been my home for most of my life and I have grown to love it.

I immediately fell in love with the gorgeous homes here. That love affair has never wavered and I worked full time as an interior designer for many years while fixing up my own old homes. I've always enjoyed gardening and creating wonderful comfortable places for people to live. Now I live next door to my wonderful West Saint James property in it's "twin house".

Diane Armstrong purchased this house in 2007

Why Diane Armstrong chose Cleveland Heights

I love this walking neighborhood, so when I was looking for a house here I initially was looking for a single family home for myself but they were all so very large! So what a grand idea to buy two "smaller" homes and rent one of them. So I've been renting since I bought the house and only this year I decided furnish one half and rent as a short stay.

What makes this house unique

This house feels elegant yet comfortable "farmhouse-urban-cottage." It was love at first sight!

The best place to stay in Cleveland

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a wonderful area of Cleveland. It was perfect for our family, dogs etc. Central to all of the museums, WRU, Art and Music Institutes, and minutes to downtown and the Cleveland Clinic. Our host was gracious and accommodating. The kitchen is a chef’s delight.

We will recommend this home to anyone traveling to Cleveland.

Excellent

  • 4 of 5

The house was great!! Excellent location, well stocked with just about everything you will need. Our only regret was we just did not have enough time to enjoy the home. Diane was wonderful. This was so far the cleanest VRBO we have stayed in. Thanks for sharing your home.

Great location, great house.

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, well laid out and had all the amenities we were looking for. The beds were comfortable and the property was well maintained. It was in a great neighborhood and very walkable to resturaunts and other attractions. I would stay here again.

Attractive and comfortable for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for Case Western Reserve graduation! The house - inside and out - was beautiful, comfortable, and flexible for our multi-generational family of 8. We walked 1.4 miles to campus through quiet, architecturally-interesting neighborhood. Diane provided thoughtful touches, and she was available for a couple of inconsequential issues. We were so happy that we stayed here!

Spacious and cozy home in a Gorgeous Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long New Years weekend at Rachels home with friends and family. The home is in a beautiful neighborhood built in the 1920's. We spent mornings drinking coffee and watching the snow come down in this idyllic setting. Our dogs enjoyed getting to go out and roam the fenced in yard for short trips during the very cold weather. We would have loved to walk the neighborhood but temps were single digits and below 0. The home itself is very tastefully decorated, cozy and super clean. The kitchen was incredibly functional, well appointed, and updated. The location can't be beat, seated a mile or two from Little Italy, Shaker, and Beachwood. If you are in town for events in University Circle this is a great place to call home as well. Just 4 miles from downtown Cleveland and all the city has to offer.
