‘Cave House’ Goes Up for Sale in Concord: See 31 Photos of the Property

Listing agent Jacqueline Ward tells 3News the property, which is 145 feet long, has been featured on MTV and HGTV throughout the years.

The “Cave House” went on the market two weeks ago.

Ward also provided the following history of the property:

Chant Du Gygne, Ohio’s own organically designed, live in sculpture, resides on Cascade Rd. in Concord. The structure is the intermixing of the vision for art to be lived in by Sculptor Wayne Trapp, and the Charles W. Clear family’s desire to find the perfect home for their 8 children.

Construction began on the first observed Earth Day, April 22nd 1970 and was completed by the end of that summer with the help of 20 art students being carefully supervised by Mr. Trapp himself. All hand picked after Mr. Trapp ran a help wanted advertisement in the local paper for “Sculptor building a sculpture house needs male and female workers, awareness and sensitivity desired, head put togethers types preferred, $25/week, bed and bread provided.” From that ad 72 applicants were interviewed and the building crew was fully staffed.

The structure itself is metal framing, expanding insulation, cement, and paint. The “guest house” on the property was where the final process of the build was honed before the main structure was started.

Wayne Trapp was self-described as a Visionary Realist. He already was nationally recognized for his work and widely collected internationally prior to setting the vision of Chant Du Gygne in motion. A structure and sculpture in one, with no corners, natural light, and resting peacefully with the land to which it was erected on. There were no specific blueprints for the project, instead the 10 individual rooms and countless quirky features were the daily whim of Mr. Trapp, carried out by his dedicated crew of like minded visionaries.
