Cincinnati is made up of 52 different neighborhoods, each with its own unique vibe. What we like most about Pleasant Ridge is that it really is one of those rare places where people of all walks of life have been coexisting peacefully for decades. Nowhere is that more evident than in its home stock, which spans from multi-families to post-WWII bungalow-style starter homes and dozens of massive old mansions, too.
A great example of the neighborhood’s architectural diversity can be found on Grand Vista Avenue, a street most people know for its sprawling old estates situated on oversized lots. But tucked into the middle of all that, and holding its own thanks to an appealing tudor-style design, is this 1931 home with a charming burnt orange front door.
The home’s curb appeal draws buyers in (it’s hard not to love that stone-and-brick facade or plaster-and-lathe second story with scalloped wood trim), but once inside, they may be more impressed with how big this home lives, complete with four bedrooms and two and a half baths. Add in a sunny family room and a fully updated kitchen with cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, and it’s safe to say this place is living proof a home doesn’t have to be massive to be “Grand.”
