Cincinnati Preservation Bargains: 2551 Homestead

Maybe you would love to live in an old house but years of restoration just are not your cup of tea. If that is the case 2551 Homestead in Westwood may just be your dream home.


All over Cincinnati are very early homes. At first glance the causal observer might mistake this for  1920's Dutch colonial. However it is a much earlier house. Probably built as a simple "L" house this now grand home had several thoughtful additions over the years and now is almost 2700 square feet of comfortable living and entertaining space on a  99x195 foot lot

MLS#1248492 offered by Bruce Ibold 513-245-1266 for only 60,000.00.

This home features great woodwork , three fireplaces, a great period bathroom with clawfoot tub and many more details. This is a home you can comfortably live in and merely redecorate to suit your taste. 8 rooms, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and a two car garage.

One of the neighbors has a rather extensive history let me know and I will forward that info of the house if you are interested.

Do you know of a preservation bargain? A home that just needs your love to make it shine again and save it from the clutches of some slumlord or investor type? If so contact me at victiques@gmail.com and we may feature it here. Since we began this series we have united several homes with caring new owners. Saving Cincinnati, One house at a a time
