Some of Cincinnati’s best neighborhoods offer just the right balance of city and suburban life. With fantastic dinner spots, coffee shops, and kid-friendly activities all within walking distance, Mt. Lookout is one of our longtime favorite places to find that perfect city-adjacent vibe.
This home on Nash Avenue is steps from Mt. Lookout staples like Zip’s Cafe, Mt. Lookout Tavern, and the Mt. Lookout Swim and Tennis Club. It’s on a quiet, dead-end street, but near the Square—plus, it’s in easy driving distance to Hyde Park, Walnut Hills, and downtown.
The home features four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and stands out on the street with an all-black facade accented with wood details—even the garage door is painted black. The tucked-away front door leads to an enclosed all-season room with a large window that offers a perfect spot to enjoy morning coffee year-round.
Inside, all-white walls brighten the space and contrast with the hardwood floors that add depth to the first floor. A large archway opens to the kitchen, where on-trend taupe cabinets and stainless appliances pair well with the granite countertops and neutral backsplash. There’s also a dining area with loads of light that pours into the space.
Just off the kitchen, you’ll find a family room, a cozy nook with easy access to the kitchen and a mini bar complete with a drink fridge, wine racks, and storage for glassware and booze. This recent addition to the home serves as the perfect spot for everyday use while the front room can be used for entertaining. Or forgo a double living space and create your dream home office.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are spacious, featuring hardwood floors and ceiling fans with plenty of windows to take advantage of the natural light.
The basement could use a little update, but the space the perfect opportunity for new homeowners to let their imaginations run wild. We imagine a small bar and built-in entertainment station for game nights, or maybe a an additional suite for guests.
Out back, the yard is private and shaded with matures trees and a patio perfect for a table and chairs. The expansive yard is ready for a swing set or a gathering space with a fire pit in the middle. It may only be February, but we’re already dreaming of the summer days spent in this idyllic backyard.
