The facade of this 1875-built building boasts more than a dozen massive windows that lead to Juliet balconies, and intricate detailing. The one-bedroom, one-bath condo offers a large, open living space that includes the kitchen, too. Hardwood floors and an exposed brick wall give the place a historic vibe, and loads of natural light beams in through the large windows. The kitchen features granite countertops and stainless appliances and a small alcove out of the way of the main space is perfect for a home office. The bedroom features more exposed brick, plus a bathroom. “Being a half block to Fountain Square is incredible,” says listing agent Walt Gibler. “It’s in the heart of all the action [and] there is so much development going on in the direct vicinity, including but not limited to The Banks and what 3CDC is doing.” The home is across the street from The Westin and near plenty of hotspots like Paul Brown Stadium and Great American Ball Park.

With two bedrooms and one bath, this historic Bremen Lofts condo is 880 square feet, which is bigger than it sounds. By optimizing the space with a galley kitchen, the living space isn’t compromised. Hardwood floors fill the living room, which also features exposed brick. Against the wall, frosted windows section off the bedroom from the rest of the home. In the kitchen, stainless appliances, quartz countertops, and a waterfall counter desk run along one wall. The star of the home is the covered deck—a rare find in the middle of the city. Off the kitchen, walk out to the spacious deck that features plenty of room for entertaining. From the deck, you have a great view of the ArtWorks murals Emerge and Faces of Homelessness. Closets By Design planned the bedroom closet and plenty of windows bring natural light into the space. Nearby, there’s a sitting area ready to make into an office, game room, or another small bedroom. You’re steps from Washington Park in one direction and Vine Street in the other, putting you right in the center of Over-the-Rhine’s action.
