The Most Modern New Build In Cincinnati Is Also The House Of Our Dreams

If this is a peek into the future of Cincinnati’s luxury infill market, sign us up.

The home at 943 Monastery Street in Mount Adams isn’t complete yet. But when it is, it’ll be just the second passive house in Cincinnati. Passive houses produce exceptionally low carbon footprints, thanks to their advanced heating and cooling systems. (Go green, folks. It’s time.)

It’ll also be one of the most modern homes on the market. That’s thanks to Bronzie Design + Build (the builder) and Fold & Form (the architecture firm on record). Both Bronzie and Fold & Form are on the forefront of innovative home design, and they’re putting all the bells and whistles into 943 Monastery. In addition to being ecologically sound, it’ll be sleek, gorgeous, and decked out with the highest of high-end finishes.

And it’ll have a basement.

Yes, that warrants its own paragraph. Because basements aren’t just uncommon on Mt. Adams’ hillsides, they’re nearly nonexistent. And 943 Monastery's basement will be large (1,600 sq. ft. to be exact).

Just like the rest of the house. I mean, it has to be cool considering it’s taken us this long to mention where the house sits in proximity to (booming, bustling, thriving, renaissance-ing) Downtown Cincinnati. Well, it’s close. So close you could probably hit a driving iron onto the casino (and a three wood into that lovely Mangat Plastic Surgery ad). ...Even if that’s not technically what the rooftop deck is supposed to be for.

Here’s the rest of the info:

  • 3 beds
  • 3 full baths, 1 half-bath
  • 2-car garage
  • LEED Platinum Certified, meaning the owner will receive a 15-year tax abatement.
  • Passive House Certified (it merits repeating)
  • An elevator
  • Expansive rooftop deck with sweeping views of Mt. Auburn, OTR, and Downtown Cincinnati
  • High-end finishes: 7" white oak planks throughout, custom cabinetry, marble or caesarstone counters, top-of-the-line appliances, custom lighting



Have at it if you’ve got the goods.
