Cincinnati Preservation Bargain: SAVE THIS HOUSE


1665 Harrison Ave will most certainly be bulldozed by the city unless someone comes forth to save this historic Italianate Townhouse.


Although I can't see how this property doesn't meet the eligibility requirement under section 106,apparently it has been declared a nuisance and is on the city "Historic Death List".


MLS #1235750 Offered by Albert Whittich Huff Realty, (Western Hills Office ),513-574-2300.


Offered at ONLY 7500.00, this is short sale property. When was the last time you saw a two story brick Italianate Townhouse with wonderful detailing and walk our lower level, for only 7500.00. Will need the usual mechanical restoration but its a solid brick house so we know it's built well.


The "good news" this house has spectacular view of the Lick Run valley out back. That means you will have a "Million Dollar View" once Lick run creek is daylighted and the new green park is created as part of the MSD Lick Run Daylighting project. Imagine a rooftop deck overlooking that!


Do not let the city tear this great house down! Be a Preservation Hero and Save this House!!!


Do you know of a Preservation bargain? A house that needs some TLC to be restored to its former glory? If so send me the contact info and photos to victiques@hotmail.com and we may feature it here. Since this series started we have saved several properties from the clutches of slumlords and Investors and they are on their way back. Saving Cincinnati One house at a time.
