Idyllic is the word this home’s listing agent, Kelly Gibbs, uses to describe Mariemont; with kids walking to school, green parks, and a cluster of great restaurants and businesses downtown, we couldn’t agree more. The seeds were planted when Mary Emery officially founded the carefully planned community back in 1923. Over time, Mariemont has taken on a personality all its own as a tight-knit neighborhood with a charm unique to Cincinnati.
Unfortunately, Emery’s vision of the Village being accessible to all income brackets is fading, especially south of Wooster Pike, where homes can hover near the million dollar mark. That’s why we’re excited to see more interest in reviving houses like this 1940 bungalow just northwest of Wooster and Plainville Road. You can tell the place is special from the front porch, featuring a purple painted door and stained beadboard ceiling. Inside, quartz kitchen counters, glass subway tiles, and beautifully re-done baths are all hallmarks of a professional renovator who “doesn’t skimp on finishes,” Gibbs says. Our favorite spaces in the home by far include the addition off the kitchen (with on-trend patterned tile floor) and the bonus loft space upstairs.
The home will appeal to a wide variety of buyers, Gibbs says, noting that while empty nesters might appreciate the first floor bedrooms, young families might like having two additional bedrooms upstairs for kids. Any way you slice it, the home is a great reason to consider buying in Mariemont without breaking the bank.
