Cincinnati Preservation Bargains: Rosemont in Price Hill

Have you kept that New Years Resolution that you would  really "do something" to save the Architectural history of Cincinnati and be a better 'hands on' Preservationist?
Under that vinyl is a great Victorian house!

Well the foreclosure crisis and investors walking away may now give you your chance, because banks are almost 'giving away" houses. can you say 2349.00? That is NOT A TYPO! This house is assessed by the auditor at over 97K. There is no excuse here folks, great house, incredible price.

This once charming two story "L" Victorian cottage, has suffered the indignity of being converted to THREE apartments, but its still standing, is interesting with its corner entry and has some decent bones left that this really would be a charming house when restored on not a bad block in Price Hill,1005 Rosemont.  There is already some restoration activity in the area already and of course Price Hill Will is pouring a lot of dollars into Price Hill.
The tile work shows what a nice house this once was, it can be again!

This home sits on a 75x150 foot  corner lot , Imagine this with the  vinyl gone and a four color preservation paint job,  a picket fence, window boxes, and a 'cottage garden' with brick walks! The MLS number is 1253040, Key Realty Group.Instant equity here and you will be doing your part to bring back a great neighborhood. Better hurry, I can't imagine this lasting for long!

Do you know of a "Preservation Bargain"? An old house that just needs a preservation minded owner with some vision to save it? If so, please let us know at victiques@gmail.com and we may feature it here. Since we began this series a couple of years ago we have saved homes that might be in a landfill right now were it not for Preservationists like yourself stepping up and saving a piece of Cincinnati history. Saving Cincinnati, One house at a time!

It's me again!

I can date it back to the Brunner family who were florists from 1880 census and city directories when Rosemont Avenue was call "Vaughan Road". They still show up in the city directories until at least 1942 at 1007-17 Rosemont Ave.
