Peek Inside This Tricked-Out Newport Home, Once Owned By A Reds Pitcher

Our little slice of the world looks pretty good, doesn’t it? Especially from the rooftop deck of this stunning Mansion Hill property in Newport, which was once owned by former Reds pitcher Francisco Cordero.

Looking through the gallery, that view is the first thing you notice. The second thing you notice is the home’s impressive interior design, which gets the most out of its 6,600-square-foot canvas. And by "interior design," I don’t just mean furnishings, though they certainly add a note of lavishness to the palate. Because even if you strip away that lavishness, you’re still left with a beautiful home, rich in details, contours, and recesses.

You’re also left with a home that flows incredibly well, thanks to the open layout on each of its floors. With that in mind, let’s start at the top and work our way down.


Every level of 7 Camryn Court hosts stunning views, but the rooftop deck’s panoramic cityscape is the clear winner. If you’re a proud Cincinnatian, it’s the kind of view that’ll make you go weak in the knees.

Pull yourself away from the gorgeous view of the downtown skyline, and you'll find the rooftop space has all the essentials—a gas fireplace, a jacuzzi, and a covered patio with a television. Whether you’re hosting a get-together or just want to let the day melt away with a relaxing soak, this is the perfect spot.


Walk inside from the patio and you’ll discover a large recreation room with a custom-carved glass bar. This is the room for that billiards table, dart board, or arcade game. You might also hang your finest television here, because this is where you’ll be watching ESPN, Netflix, and (let’s be honest) the Food Network.

The house has an elevator so you can navigate its five levels with ease. But if you don’t have to, there’s little reason to bypass the staircase, which features one of the most impressive designs we’ve ever seen. Its custom ironwork railings and Brazilian cherry treads and risers are suspended in a curved stairwell with a copper “living” wall designed by Gary Lord.

The staircase enhances the home’s open layout. It connects, for example, the recreation room on the top level with the living room and kitchen just below it, such that all three rooms feel as if they might be part of the same story. And speaking of which


The kitchen at 7 Camryn Court is clean, contemporary, and utterly breathtaking. It features European-style frameless cabinets by Crystal, Cambria quartz waterfall counters, a 48” Viking Pro stove with a custom hood, and slate floors. Every turn in the custom designed kitchen, with its intriguing curves and angles, is visually pleasing.

The kitchen flows into a dining area distinguished by its coffered ceiling. The dining area then flows into the aforementioned living room to create one sumptuous open space. It’s pretty amazing.
