Property description
Twin Oaks Estate is a Fully Furnished Executive Office Building. In the halcyon days that preceded the crash of 1929, life was lived on a grand scale by those made wealthy by the industrial revolution. Akron’s rubber industry spawned several industrial barons whose lavish lifestyle rivaled that of the Great Gatsby. One of these industrial giants was Stacey G. Carkhuff, Secretary of Firestone Tire and Rubber Company from 1905 to 1943. Twin Oaks Estates was home to him and his family. The home was designed by the prominent New York architectural firm of Alexander Trowbridge and Frederick L. Ackerman. The two story 30 room Georgian revival home was built in 1917. The four-car garage was specially built to accommodate the family’s new Packard Phaeton. It is not clear when the Carcuff’s sold the home, but for many years afterwards it was the office of the Firestone Foundation. After that it was converted to offices for an advertising firm followed by the offices of Oldham and Oldham law firm. In 2004 the building was purchased b the owners of the sovereign chemical company. Extensive restoration and interior decorating were completed in early 2005. The corporate offices of Sovereign Chemical Company called the Estate home until June of 2017.
