Cincinnati Preservation Bargains: Second Empire Fairmount Ave

Beneath all that hideous vinyl siding beats the heart of an Elegant Second Empire lady. This house sits prominently on a corner right across from one of the largest mansions on the west side. If you look at our house you can see just what this one would could look like as they are similar and there is a very nice Second Empire right next door (west) of this one.

From the extensive stone terracing work to the detailing on this house that includes front square bays windows. several side bays etc. This house was designed to take in the views around it. This house properly restored and in a 4-5 color paint job will shine once again. Plus the added benefit of a drive in garage

MLS#1257753, this home is offered at 45,000.00 and is offered by Martin Rutland, Bee Hive Realty LLC. With some hard work converting this home back to a single family may have its greatest rewards as this property is in the up and coming Knox Hill Neighborhood. Take a look at the restoration going on around this house and you realize what an opportunity this is.
