Channel your inner New Yorker in this stylish top-floor condo with views of downtown Cincinnati. Built in the early 1900s, the building was once home to the H. Neuer Glass Company, according to listing agent Shelby Neumann. In fact, during construction of the 11-unit condo building, now called the Glass House Lofts, old glass pieces were repurposed into sculptures displayed in the lobby.
This two-floor condo unit includes all the signature elements of an urban loft—exposed brick, exposed ducts, high ceilings, and a spiral staircase. Both floors have exterior doors that open directly in front of the elevator, no need to strategize how to get a mattress up the spiral staircase! The first floor features the living room and kitchen. Two large windows bring plenty of natural light into the space. The kitchen’s Kelly green cabinets pop against the white brick walls, stainless appliances, and wood plank feature wall. Opposite the cabinet wall, there’s space for a small sofa and seating area, and the second room on this floor, which would make a great office, studio, or workout room.
On the second level, the bedroom is larger than a typical loft-style apartment and more private, too. “The separation between living and sleeping quarters is a unique feature for a one bedroom condo,” says Neumann. “[Often] you’ll find that the bedroom and living room are separated by a partial wall. This design allows for a bit more privacy for those days when you forgot to make your bed.” Loads of light shines in through the windows, and a doorless walk-in closet allows for plenty of organization space. More exposed brick lines the upstairs bath, which has built-in shelving and drawers for storage, plus a glass-enclosed shower.
Aside from the individual unit, the building offers perks too. Like the contemporary lobby with seating and tables. There’s a community rooftop with entertaining space, and in the lower level of the building, there are locked wine cabinets and a tasting room for residents. Another amenity Cincinnatians can get behind, a secure enclosed garage—walking to the car in the cold is no longer miserable! But you’re also in the Pendleton neighborhood, just steps away from popular hotspots like Urbana Cafe and Boomtown Biscuits and a short walk from OTR.
