The lucky buyer of this spacious two-story Hyde Park home will save a fortune on energy bills, thanks to three energy-efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems—not bad for a 30-plus-year-old house that’s almost 8,000 square feet.
Originally built in 1986, the home’s current owners oversaw the addition of two garage bays and an attached guest suite above featuring an elevator, private entrance access, and a full bath with a walk-in shower. Modern touches are seen throughout the five-bedroom, six-bathroom house, which sits less than a mile from Hyde Park Square and the Cincinnati Country Club, including three fireplaces, wood and tile flooring, quartz and granite counters, vaulted ceilings, and security and sprinkler systems.
Our favorite parts? We’re head over heels for the large, yet cozy–feeling dining room with floor-to-ceiling stacked windows and a stone accent wall (not the only accent wall like this in the house!). We’re also big fans of the home’s open floor plan, each room flowing naturally into the next, and the grand kitchen, filled with Thermador appliances and even a built-in coffee and espresso maker.
Outside, a 2,000-square-foot open-air patio bordered by greenery provides a private outdoor retreat, and a stone staircase leads to Edwards Road. Oh, and did we mention the driveway is heated from the street to the front door with an automatic precipitation sensor? That’s sure to make a difference during Cincinnati’s harsh winters.
