We love a good OTR condo, so naturally we’re swooning over this affordable one-bedroom, one-bath condo with loads of natural light and original details. “I love this condo for multiple reasons,” says listing agent Brad Acree. “The most exciting thing to me is the new owner is going to have a home downtown without breaking the budget. We rarely get housing inventory so affordable in one of the most desirable neighborhoods downtown.”
Not too far from the action, Milton Street is a popular spot up in Prospect Hill that’s just far enough away from the city without taking away from the perks of city living. Trendy bars such as Somerset are a seven-minute walk away and Liberty’s Bar and Bottle Shop is slightly closer with Nicola’s right across the street. If you’re a Bearcat fan, Clifton is just a short drive up the street. For soccer fanatics, FC Cincinnati’s TQL Stadium is within walking distance. But best of all, you’re in the middle of everything the city has to offer.
As for the home itself, the condo building was originally built in 1880 and renovated with tax abatement perks through 2028. From the street, it’s an unassuming facade with a grand wood front door and small front yard patio.
This first-floor unit is shotgun-style with the front door opening directly into the living room. An exposed-brick fireplace and dark wood floors do wonders to add depth to the otherwise white space.
In the kitchen, stainless appliances, concrete countertops, and dark cabinets create a modern look. The mini bar, set against the brick wall, could be perfect as an additional dining station, or even as a workspace.
The design elements in the bedroom flow beautifully with the rest of the home—more exposed brick, tile floors, and a window to bring in natural light. The bathroom offers loads of closet space and an in-unit washer and dryer that’s conveniently located for easy access to do laundry.
We imagine summer days spent enjoying the sunshine on the front step and evenings spent sipping cocktails on the private side patio. And if you aren’t into hanging outside, just walk a half mile to be around some of the best spots in the city “Prospect Hill will always be special to me, because it is where I bought my first home,” says Acree. “Someone is going to love their new life here.”
