Sure, you may have your favorite purple sweater, maybe even a phone case, but would you paint your house’s trim in this bold hue? The beige-and-purple color scheme adds a little whimsy to the exterior, striking the right note in historic Columbia-Tusculum. But this three-bedroom charmer, built in 2013, features much more than a colorful facade.
On this street where houses are packed in tight, builders and owners know how to use their vertical space. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home on Sachem features 9-foot ceilings, and just keeps going up. The covered balcony view of the city means you don’t even need to leave home to have the best dinner seat in the house. Though this is a newer build, it echoes details found in restored houses in this area, like those high ceilings. Outside, the details really do matter.
“The home has a beautifully landscaped yard, and gorgeous river and city views,” says Sibcy Cline agent Julie K. Back. Window boxes full of vibrant flowers are the icing on the cake.
The main living space features a much-desired open floor plan that extends from the dining space, through the cream kitchen, and ends with a sitting room with spectacular coffered ceilings. Multiple rooms in the house could make the perfect study, including a creatively carved out smaller space next to the patio door, and a larger, tiled upstairs room with a view that might have you working less than you intended.
This house has all the older home vibes, but it’s actually just eight years old, with the built-in modern technology to prove it. The heating system is geothermal, there’s an oversized three-car garage that’s climate controlled, and an underground irrigation system keeps the landscaping fresh. The new owners can go ahead and donate their snow shovel, as the heated driveway keeps things from getting too slick. Between all that and the beautiful, massive trees of Alms Park backed right up against the lawn, this home has us looking up—literally and figuratively—to Cincinnati’s beauty.
