Some houses have so much personality that they speak for themselves, and this 60s-era home in Delhi barely has to raise its voice to get you to notice its distinctive style.

Even at first glance, the three-bedroom home’s minimalist exterior distinguishes it from its colonial and ranch-style neighbors. Inside, these same muted colors and geometric shapes are the lifeblood of the house. White exposed brick, geometric wood details, and black accents pop up around every corner, and the levels are connected by a set of eye-catching wooden stairs, the spiral staircase’s cooler younger cousin.

Beamed cathedral ceilings make each bedroom feel like a spacious getaway, and the master’s private balcony adds an extra bit of luxury. The wraparound deck facing your own slice of West Side greenery makes this home the perfect place to impress your holier-than-thou East Side friends. And if you are that friend, maybe this home will turn your head toward the other side of I-75. The proximity to Western Hills Country Club might sweeten the deal.

If the unique design features aren’t enough of a draw, consider the home’s place in local media history. The inaugural owner was none other than Jerry Thomas of WKRC, who, at the time of his 2006 retirement, was a local on-air personality longer than any other Cincinnati radio host.

With a home like this one, you can let the walls (and cathedral ceilings) do the talking.
