Cincinnati Preservation Bargains: May street

It has been a long time since this home had some serious love but it is one of the few remaining Grand Homes that has not been restored or demoed by the city. Offered at ONLY 14,900.00!


2530 May Street is a tour de force of Victorian Architecture, from its grand porch to intricate detailing it screams someone "RESTORE ME". The 3 story ,6 bedroom, 2 bath house was built at a time when money was no object. It may require someone with the same mindset to save it but what a grand house you will have. This property was used as a masonic lodge since 1960 meaning many of its 1st floor rooms have been opened up and they will need to be put back. The home has a grand staircase. 3 fireplaces and is over 6000 square feet.
MLS 1233673 is offered by Walter Keegan 513-544-5726, TRANSACTION REALTY, 513-898-1744
