This Chic Condo In a Historic Vine Street Building Is the Perfect Home for an Urbanist

I'd be willing to bet everyone who's spent time on Vine Street eating good food, shopping local, or enjoying a drink on a sunny afternoon has thought about what it'd be like to have a permanent address above one of its many street-level businesses. However seriously they've entertained the idea, they've at least had that quick "what if" moment. It's not unusual to be in a pleasant place and consider the benefits of moving there; in fact, it'd be a little strange not to imagine the possibilities.

So, for the next several minutes, indulge that fantasy. Imagine getting that slick new print from Jack Wood Gallery and the homemade treat for your dog from Pet Wants before grabbing Eagle carry out. You return home to your pristine, quiet abode in unit #201 at the Parvis Lofts at 1415 Vine Street. Now, imagine sitting down in your modern kitchen to eat that chicken sandwich and mac & cheese (no trip to the Eagle can be without that mac, after all) before hanging up that print on the wall just above the couch. (Gasp! It's perfect!) With the chicken eaten and new wall art hung, you make your way to your private, shaded balcony overlooking the tree-lined patio below for a little fresh air while you video chat with your crew for happy hour. Your dog happily gnaws on the rawhide you got her while you chill with a glass of wine.

Now here's the fun part: you don't have to imagine it! All of that can actually be yours.

1415 Vine Street #201 offers all the benefits of living on Vine Street along with upgraded finishes, dedicated parking, both private and communal outdoor space, and other desirable amenities. The 1-bed, 1-bath, 567-square-foot condo sits within an elegant Italianate building that was constructed in 1900. Don't let the age scare you away, though—the apartment itself is anything but old fashioned.

The Parvis Lofts were 3CDC's first market-rate apartment project in OTR years ago. In 2017, the apartments were converted to condos, and #201's current owner had custom quartz countertops, unique light fixtures, and higher-end appliances installed to upgrade from the builder-grade fixtures. The result is a customized, modern home that's as beautiful as it is comfortable.

"Where do I park?" The ever-automobile-conscious Cincinnatian asks. Glad you asked. Purchasing the condo grants the owner one dedicated spot in the Washington Park Garage a block away. You can access the building from Parvis Alley through digitally locked gates on either 14th or 15th street so you don't have to walk all the way around to the front of the building, too. And with quick access to a north-bound streetcar stop two blocks south and a south-bound stop three blocks southwest, you can get anywhere around the core without even driving or walking very far.

Also, while that private balcony you imagined earlier is nice for social distancing, the European-inspired communal space shaded by numerous tall trees is equipped with ample seating and a grill. That'll be a great space to hang out in once Over-the-Rhine is Over-the-Rona. (Shoutout to OTR-based Empower Media Marketing for that excellent hashtag.)

I could talk at length about why living here is ideal for a single occupant or a romantic couple interested in an urban lifestyle on one of Cincinnati's most popular inner-city streets, but you really should see it for yourself. Above is a gallery of images that showcase the beautiful unit and everything it entails.
