Cincinnati Preservation Bargain: Queen City Ave Second Empire

Classic Brick Second Empire in great location
Are you a visionary? Maybe you have that Urban Pioneer spirit? If so, 1676 Queen City Ave may be your dream home. This property sits across the street from the proposed Lick Run daylighting project which means you will have a new green space park right across the street and a  new rebuilt Queen City Ave with nice sidewalks and landscaping. Get in now and you will be sitting pretty with your new rooftop deck overlooking the new park.

Currently a three unit multi family this building would make an excellent conversion to a grand single family townhouse or perhaps a condominium conversion. You might even be ale to do a mixed use commercial residential. Not only is there parking at the rear of the building (room to build a garage, but the property includes a side lot that currently has a billboard on it that could be your private walled "secret garden". This building has a lot of possibilities. This street is set for big changes and this is a key property.

Architecturally its very impressive. Brick Second Empire mansard roof with an impressively detailed second story bay window that will have an commanding view of the new park. Offered at only 30,000.00 this is an excellent value for the square footage! MLS#1243485 Offered by Carole Hendy, Poychronion Group Realtors 513-574-7005.
