A Trendy Townhome in Over-the-Rhine

Like a speakeasy, this OTR townhome is unassuming from the front but hip and trendy on the inside.

The facade doesn’t do this Over-the-Rhine townhome justice, but that just adds to its overall charm. It’s almost like a speakeasy, unassuming from the front but hip and trendy on the inside. Exposed brick and original hardwood floors are common in OTR homes, but this townhome’s giant kitchen is far from typical. Picture a six-burner Wolf range on an oversized island that seats seven, a drink bar, open shelving, and an unreal amount of counter space. “The kitchen is one of the nicest that I’ve seen in OTR,” says listing agent Bill Draznik. “This is a fabulous home to entertain in.”

While the kitchen is the star of the home, the rest is just as impressive. The kitchen opens up into a living room that offers additional entertaining space, and on the other side, a dining area featuring a cool chandelier illuminated by vintage light bulbs. Take the sleek staircase to the second floor to find an open office (that could also serve as a movie or family room) with tons of natural lighting and one of two spacious bedrooms. Atypical of city living, each of the home’s bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms are quite large, especially the master suite located on the third floor. The master bathroom is especially dreamy, with a double shower, a soaking tub, and heated floors. Both full bathrooms also feature a double vanity for extra elbow room in the morning.

Another rare amenity of OTR homes is a spacious outdoor entertaining area. This townhome offers not one but two outdoor spaces—a decent-size patio off the first floor and a massive deck (with plenty of room for patio furniture) off the second. Add some string lights and your fall family grill outs just got a whole lot cuter. Don’t feel like cooking or grilling out? Findlay Market, Washington Park, and a handful of other restaurants and bars sit within walking distance. We suggest walking around the corner and up West Liberty Street to Forty Thieves, a walk-up window that serves Mediterranean street food and is connected to cocktail bar Holiday Spirits.
