This 149-year-old Victorian in old Milford just may be one of our favorite listings this year. Seldom are historic homes this well cared for, this well updated, and this, well, picturesque. In fact, this house just may have it all—a pristine, decorative wrought iron fence and front gate; a picture-perfect wraparound front porch; a new custom, period-appropriate kitchen chock full of high-end appliances; four original fireplaces; a four-season sunroom, where an old screened porch once sat; a custom cherry wood bar with a refrigerator and icemaker; chandeliers in multiple bedrooms and the master bath; and a spacious third-floor bonus space currently staged as an office. Outside, it also has a picture-perfect yard and paver patio, too, plus an outdoor kitchen, sleek fire pit, and quaint detached two-and-a-half car garage.
The home’s history, per the listing brochure, dates back to the turn of the 20th century, when it was likely built by Edward Roe Glascock and his wife, Indiana “Anna” Everson. It then stayed in the Glascock family for more than 100 years, until 2009. Milford itself was once a mill town, built along the banks of the Little Miami River; in 1982, it officially became a city. Today, thanks to major revitalization efforts, a booming business district, and easy access to both the Little Miami Bike Trail and Valley View Nature Preserve, it’s one of greater Cincinnati’s most appealing small-town gems.
