This is What You Can Get For a Million–ish Dollars on the East Side


1146 Herschel Ave., Mt. Lookout, $975,000

A five-bedroom house minutes from downtown is a reasonable request in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. But this home, built in 1925, goes above and beyond. For just south of $1 million, you’ll also get a three-car garage, a huge walk-in master closet, a whopping six bathrooms (four full; two partial), and a finished attic suite. Plus, that whole three-story Colonial thing has mad Betty Draper cred.

925 Edwards Rd., Hyde Park, $999,000

This newly renovated three-bedroom Hyde Park Ranch is a more contemporary construction (1962), and so features many of the architectural elements that we’ve come to associate with the mid-century era: Most of the action is on a single floor, so the rooms often seamlessly flow into each other, and there are prominent wall-sized windows throughout the home. After that, however, you’ll find that this is a traditional-style house through and through. And with a two-car garage, three and 1/2 baths, and a spacious landscaped yard with detached greenhouse, it’s a comfy place to set up house.

2884 Grandin Rd., Hyde Park, $899,000 (price reduced from $925,000)

The deal just keeps getting sweeter for this huge and unique five-bedroom home. Built in 1970, it features quirky-cool design elements like a sunken seating area; floor-to-ceiling field stone fireplaces; ornate front doors; interior walkways, balconies, and a spiral staircase; and a woodsy color palette of deep brown, cork, and brick red (except the updated kitchen, which is a study in cool, clean grey). And that mature Japanese maple out front is worth a visit alone.
