There are certain neighborhoods in Cincinnati where it’s really fun to ogle homes; Glendale is one such place. Case in point: this five-bedroom colonial estate home with a fancy Hollywood-style split staircase. Check out the dining room, too, with built-in china cabinets, chair rails, dentilmolding, and enough space to comfortably seat ten (or more) people. The home also has a beautiful galley-style kitchen with a lofted, beamed ceiling and brick backsplash, plus a master suite with its own fireplace and two “his and hers” master baths. Situated on one acre, the home features a three-car garage and screened-in back patio as well.
Many Cincinnatians know Glendale best for its 43-year-old Grand Finale restaurant (home to some pretty tasty crepes and desserts). But many Queen City residents aren’t familiar with Glendale’s storied past: It was founded in 1851 by a group of businessmen looking to build summer homes and was incorporated into a village four years later; in 1976, it became the first historic National Landmark in Ohio; and, in the 1940s, businessman Thomas Carruthers III relocated two pairs of Michigan-born black squirrels to Glendale, whose many descendants can be seen running free throughout the village today.
