A Roundup of Northside Renos

Designer details and preserved historic elements are bringing old homes back to life.

A renaissance of home renovation is taking over Cincinnati neighborhoods. From Deer Park flips like this one to dedicated rehabbers like Q102’s Tim Timmerman and team, we’re swooning over all the revitalized homes across the tri-state, including these three Northside projects that are currently on the market.

This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath foursquare balances historic elements with modern updates. Original details—the glass panel front door, the original staircase, fireplaces, and preserved leaded and stained glass windows—serve as focal points. The dining-slash-living room opens up into an all-white, eat-in kitchen filled with natural light from the windows on the first floor. Stainless appliances and matte black hardware contrass the sleek white cabinets and backsplash. Upstairs, the spacious master boasts a black-tiled bath and glass-enclosed shower. Outside, the front porch has the perfect space for a table and chairs. Around back the fenced-in patio offers a private oasis, and an original detached garage could become a mini studio.

Looking for a home with an open floor plan? This is it! The first floor flows from living to dining to kitchen area with an original fireplace and hardwood floors throughout. Similar to the home on Florida Ave., the kitchen is crisp white with natural wood shelving, quartz countertops, and an Edison bulb-style fixture above the island. The hidden staircase in the kitchen leads you upstairs, where another stair takes you to the third floor. The three bedrooms and four baths maximize every inch of space, and include fancy tiles and stylish vanities. The backyard is smaller, but there’s plenty of room for a grill and patio set, and it comes with a rare perk for Northside—a two-car garage. “This is a perfect layout for an AirBnb,” says listing agent and designer Alicia Stoughton. “All bedrooms have their own attached bath.”

Just blocks from the heart of Northside, this reno hides great updates behind its unassuming facade. The open first floor is partially divided by an exposed brick fireplace, living room in front, kitchen behind. That kitchen is massive, with enough room for friends to gather while you work. The sink anchors the island, and drawers and cabinets deliver plenty of storage space. The second floor has a modern farmhouse vibe, with barn-style sliding doors and more of that exposed brick fireplace. Another surprise perk: The laundry room is upstairs. But even more important for potential homeowners, the home’s behind-the-scenes details are brand new too. New HVAC, water heater, plumbing, windows, front and back doors, and recently sealed roof. Outside, a double-decker porch gives the master bedroom a balcony and a covered space off the kitchen. The nice sized yard is ready for both entertaining and family fun.
