Two of Cincinnati’s most popular east side neighborhoods, Hyde Park and Oakley, are spacious havens for urbanites looking to settle down and stretch out. We found five great options, from a sweet three-bedroom cottage to a sprawling Grandin Road stunner:
1. 2867 Observatory Ave., Hyde Park, $799,000
Located on one of Hyde Park’s main streets, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom home has rustic details throughout. The 2,798 square-foot space includes an outdoor fireplace and an uber-fancy master suite (um, hello, sitting room and private balcony).
2. 3879 Drakewood Dr., Oakley, $379,900
A short walk to Oakley favorites like the 20th Century Theater and Sleepy Bee Café, this three-bedroom Oakley home is tucked away for privacy but still in the center of entertainment and activities. Look for a cozy porch, a grand kitchen with glass cabinets, and a finished basement with a wet bar.
3. 3742 Woodland Ave., Oakley, $414,900
This four-bedroom home is the perfect blend of old and new. Stained glass windows and intricate wood details give it an old-timey touch while white countertops and cabinets and built-in stainless steel appliances bring the kitchen into the 21st century.
4. 3590 Monteith Ave., Hyde Park, $396,000
This cute, cottage-style three-bedroom home is like a storybook house that you’d actually want to live in. The quaint kitchen has ceiling-height cream cabinets that show off handy built-in appliances. Large entryways open up to each room throughout the house giving the space an open-but-cozy feel.
5. 2848 Grandin Rd., Hyde Park, $699,000
A spa? Count us in! Located on Hyde Park’s most coveted street, this impressive home features an open floor plan, a screened-in porch, and a huge back patio that practically demands a BBQ. Oh, and that spa we were talking about. Don’t miss the fabulous walk-in closet. Shopping spree not included.
