149 Goethe Street Is The Perfect Home For Those Who Like Sweeping Views & A Fresh Remodel

Had you walked by 149 Goethe Street in Mt. Auburn a year ago, you probably wouldn’t have noticed it.

Now? Yeah, you definitely would. (Do yourself a favor and check out this video.)

Built in 1881, the home is one of those architecturally refined masterpieces – a fact recognized by Ben Fry of Fry Holdings, which purchased, gutted, and rehabbed the property in 2015.


The house is split into two separate condos, one comprising the ground and second floors, the other the third and fourth. Both units have open layouts, modern amenities, and gorgeous views of the city. Yet Fry Holdings preserved enough from the original home to create interesting juxtapositions of old and new, as in rooms where lustrous fixtures sit beside exposed, weathered brick.

  • Unit #1 (second and third floors) is a 3-bed, 2.5-bath condo.
  • Unit #2 (ground floor and lower level) is a 2-bed, 2.5-bath condo.

The most impressive thing about the homes is their location. Mt. Auburn is one of Cincinnati’s most underrated neighborhoods, but people are beginning to pay attention due to the attractive homes and its proximity to Downtown, OTR, Clifton, and Mt. Adams.

Cool, up-and-coming neighborhood? Freshly remodeled? Awesome views? The two condos at 149 Goethe Street have it all.


... for $419,000 (Unit 1) or $389,900 (Unit 2).

Note: Unit 1 is actually pending.
