If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a spectacular work of modernist architecture, here’s your chance: The Weston House at 2305 Salutaris Avenue in East Walnut Hills is on the market.
Designed in 1984 and completed in 1986, the Weston House was built for Harris & Alice Weston, two of Cincinnati’s greatest arts supporters. You’ve very likely seen the Weston name around town—they were founding patrons of the Weston Art Gallery at our Aronoff Center for the Arts.
The architectural team of Carl Strauss and Ray Roush designed the home. Strauss and Roush are known for creating some of Cincinnati’s most impressive modern architecture. The Weston House was their last work together, and it is truly a masterpiece.
The home rests on a rare and beautiful wooded one-acre lot, which took the Westons more than a decade to find. The house has two levels, and more than 5,400 square feet of living space with four bedrooms, four full baths, and two half baths.
The house was built overlooking the Ohio River with sweeping valley views in nearly every room. It was designed with the idea of bringing lots of light inside, with high ceilings and multiple expanses of floor-to-ceiling windows, sliding doors, and skylights. It has an expansive living and dining area, tons of custom built-in storage, an impressive fireplace, and multiple decks.
It also boasts an elevator, a wow-worthy winding staircase, and get this—an indoor pool with hot tub, dressing rooms, and even a poolside entertaining kitchen.
Sleek, modern finishes dominate an interior that is wrapped in steel-framed stucco and glass. Beautifully finished wood floors warm up the minimalist rooms. The master bedroom features floor to ceiling windows, and pocket doors throughout the home allow for the stylish division and expansion of the rooms. The home served as a spare backdrop for the Westons’ extensive art collection and is indeed a work of art itself.
Outside you’ll find a two-car garage, beautiful courtyard, and large deck that spans the entire length of the house’s south façade.
Ready to live in a modernist dream? The Weston House is on the market for $1,347,288.
