Between Mariemont and Old Milford, just east of Indian Hill, lies Terrace Park, a peaceful, close-knit community. For those that might overlook the natural beauty here, we rounded up three (very different) homes that are currently on the market.
This charming cottage on a tree-lined street welcomes you in with well-kept landscaping. Current owner Brian Holliday and his wife Missy purchased the home in 2013, but Brian’s history with the home goes way back: His grandparents owned it and it’s where his mother grew up. It changed hands several times in between, but the Hollidays knew they wanted to raise their four children in the home. “We loved the fact that a window that was part of the home when my husband visited as a young child was still part of the house,” says Missy. “It was moved from one area of the kitchen to another, [but] it was an amazing ‘find’ to see that it has been cherished over the years and remains a part of the home.” Inside, there’s hardwood throughout the first floor. The kitchen boasts stainless appliances, granite countertops, and a beverage center. Other notable elements include the master bath with a clawfoot soaking tub and double vanity, a finished lower level that can serve as a family room, and a two-car garage with a fully renovated movie room and bar—with a bar top that spells out Terrace Park in pennies.
Resembling a home you’d find in the Hamptons from the outside, this four-bedroom with three full and two half baths sits on a large, shady corner lot. Inside, it features hardwood floors throughout. In the family room, the focal point is the large marble fireplace with wood detailing. The eat-in kitchen offers stainless-steel appliances, crisp white cabinets, granite countertops, and a large window above the sink for a view out back. Perhaps the best spot in the house is the window-lined solarium—a perfect spot for morning coffee.
Looking for something a little bit more modern? You might think a home built in 1885 wouldn’t suit you, but this newly renovated modern farmhouse looks like a new build. The brand new, all white kitchen is filled with loads of natural light and features stainless appliances, an eat-in counter, and shiplap, a detail that also shows up elsewhere in the home. Next to the kitchen there’s a unique corner with a wet bar, cabinets for storage, and beverage fridge, plus an L-shaped bar where guests can mingle. Preserved elements like exposed brick and hardwood floors pair well with modern updates including sliding barn doors to the master and a retreat for a master bath. Also in the master, a dreamy walk-in closet offers plenty of shelving and organization. Outside, the backyard features a platform deck with potential for a secluded and relaxing space. Even the detatched two-car garage got an update to match the home’s new style!
