Nestled into a wooded hillside of Cincinnati, Ohio the existing dwelling survived although adjacent residences ended up demolished to make room for large mansions in this fascinating community.
Its best asset lay tucked behind the entrance doorway, exactly where panoramic views of the city and river unfolded to the unsuspecting customer.
In excess of time the home experienced an insensitive addition, improperly executed ‘improvements’, and around 60 yrs of exposure to Cincinnati weather.
Immediately after intensive redevelopment of the prepare, the property was stripped to the exterior studs revealing the essential quantity of the exterior shell.

Horizontal and vertical mullions ended up eliminated from the glass wall in the main dwelling room.

Each individual area, content, and depth was meticulously designed to produce a house that was quintessentially mid-century and quintessentially fashionable.

An indoor-outside life style is embraced with the substantial second-story deck and outdoor kitchen area and eating space, a swimming pool, and lounging areas.
