Here in Cincinnati, the land of seven hills, there’s pretty much nothing better than finding a beautiful home perched atop a hill that overlooks the Ohio River.
But perhaps a good view isn’t enough to get you going. Maybe you’re more inclined to drool over something with a little historical significance to it. Like, maybe you'd be interested in 2501 Grandin Road in Hyde Park, otherwise known as The Corbett House.
It was once the residence of Ralph & Patricia Corbett, well known Cincinnati public figures. Ralph was the founder of NuTone, and he and his wife spent the remaining years of their lives developing the Corbett Foundation. Within the last 60 years, the foundation has given over $70 million dollars to arts and education in Cincinnati. That's a pretty significant chunk of change and worth a few pages in local history books.
If hilltops and history aren’t enough to impress you, then maybe the fact that the home was designed by John deKoven Hill, a student of famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, might do it.
Beyond the view, history, and architectural significance, this beautiful home offers an ahead-of-its-time open-concept layout, unique metalworking throughout the interior & exterior, and a contemporary style that feels like 1962 Beverly Hills.
Alright, wipe the drool from your chin and check out the hard facts:
- Four bedrooms
- Five full bathrooms & one half bath
- Located on 3.13 acres
- 58 years old
- A three-car garage
- A patio, porch, and in-ground pool
- It's totally for sale
You’re drooling again, but who could blame you? There’s something about a stately view, an even more stately home, and an in-ground pool that just puts people in a trance. Well, snap out of it and check out the pictures for more HGTV-worthy home goodness.
