The village of Glendale was incorporated in 1855 by a group of Cincinnati businessmen looking to build summer retreats. Today, it’s one of the city’s more charming suburbs, abundant with historic homes on spacious lots. Here are three listings that might pique your interest:
This 114-year-old Dutch Colonial–style home is within walking distance to Glendale’s quaint Village Square. It’s also got major curb appeal thanks to a broad front staircase and cozy porch. Inside, perks include a spacious and open first floor, plus a massive, spa-style master bath upstairs.
Looking for something stately but newer? Check out this five-bedroom, 2007 home with a checkerboard tile front entry hall, fully remodeled kitchen, and spacious master retreat. We’re fans of the home’s in-ground pool, too, which has its own garage-slash-pool house, complete with summer striped awnings.
This 108-year-old house falls squarely in the “dream home” category. A double front hall staircase, pristine parquet floors, coffered wood beam ceilings, leaded glass transom windows, and a wood-paneled bar all add to the charm. Even better? The adorable guest cottage, featuring a massive stone fireplace, a vaulted great room ceiling, and fire-engine red kitchen cabinets.
