Two Modernist Architects Designed a Beautiful Light-Gathering Home In Columbia-Tusculum

If you love sleek, Modern architecture that feels part of its natural surroundings, you will love the home at 3049 Ononta Avenue.

Nestled in one of the Queen City’s most desirable neighborhoods, Columbia-Tusculum, this Modernist masterpiece of a house was designed by renowned Cincinnati architects Ray Roush and Carl Strauss. Roush and Strauss designed some of the most notable Modern homes in the area. This one features 2,754 square feet of living space, with three bedrooms and two and a half baths on a beautifully landscaped 8,712 square-foot lot.

The house boasts some of the best views of the city around, from both inside and outside via a large terrace overlooking the Ohio River Valley. Floor to ceiling windows and doors and skylights let in lots of light and lend the space an airy feel.

Unlike some Modernist homes that may feel cold or boxy, the interior design of this house is warm and inviting. Gorgeous carved wood doors and a naturalist color palette make it feel as if it's part of the abundant nature that surrounds it. The interior flows easily into the outdoor living spaces. A curved wood staircase winds through the home, and cathedral ceilings make for an expansive, open floor plan.

The kitchen is perfect for any home gourmand—ample counter space, plenty of storage, an island, and a double oven and wine cooler will make cooking and entertaining at home a breeze. The dining room is open and spacious and offers great views of the river.

The house has a cozy family room with a gas fireplace and built-in bookcases, making it a perfect place to Netflix and chill. An efficiently designed home office features sliding doors you can close when you’re off-duty and ready to leave work behind. And when you want to get some indoor exercise, a workout room is at the ready. The bathrooms are spa-like, the bedrooms extremely comfortable, and there is ample closet space. A two-car garage makes parking a snap.

The outdoor living space here is hard to beat, with the aforementioned terrace and a gated courtyard in the front, perfect for having your morning coffee, and dining al fresco.

Take a virtual tour of this stunning gem of a home in the gallery above. Ready to call the movers? 3049 Ononta Avenue is on the market for $995,000. For more information, check out the listing.
