Historic Home Sales

At Cincinnati Historic Homes, we are more than just architecture enthusiasts. We are real estate agents who pride ourselves on expertly guiding our clients through the process of buying and selling historic homes, navigating historic protections, exceptional building materials and practices, and special property maintenance needs, we have been there for the sale of some of the Greater Cincinnati area’s most unique gems. We would like to introduce you to some of Cincinnati Historic Homes’ greatest success stories.

  • The Herschede Mansion

  • a colorful decor scheme

    The decor of the Historic Enger Mansion was a turn-off for buyers on the market, considering the more understated and neutral trends in home decor.

    Despite the red carpet, the grand staircase has a timeless appeal.

  • priceless details

3886 READING ROAD – This stunning stone home in North Avondale, known as the Herschede Mansion, was on the market for ten years. After 5 other real estate agents tried to sell this home, our team came in as the final and successful listing agent. We were able to find a buyer for this home who didn’t mind its location, condition, or very colorful decor. Notably, under our time as listing agents, this property was featured on The Week in an Ohio Mansions round-up.

  • Roudebush Farm

  • Green Glazed Brick Gem

3937 ROSE HILL AVENUE – This green glazed brick beauty sits prominently at the entrance to North Avondale’s Rose Hill Historic District failed to sell with the previous agent. Adam’s experience with 203k loans and historic renovation projects allowed the team to intelligently market the property with full renovation bids and renovation financing to guide the buyers confidently through the transaction, removing much of the guess work and worry that comes along with the purchase of a historic fixer-upper.

  • 7222 Gracely Ave.

7222 GRACELY AVENUE – This home sold in less than 30 days despite the frequent feedback that it was priced at nearly 3x the average sale price in the neighborhood and needing major restoration. We marketed this home with renovation bids and renovation loan financing lined up for another successful sale.

  • The King Mansion

1720 EAST KING ROAD – Now sold, this historic landmark took less than 2 weeks to go under contract with a historic easement deed restriction. Our recent post and blog article on the property reached thousands of readers.

  • A Middletown Stand-Out

3551 SOUTH MAIN STREET – Now sold, this historic house in Middletown provided some interesting obstacles. The building stood out in a rust belt community with few comparable properties.

  • Greek Revival with a River View

3586 RIVER ROAD – A gorgeous antebellum house with views of the river.  This home is one of the few examples of Greek Revival architecture in Southwest Ohio and has garnered national and local attention. Due to its challenging location, it remains on the market.

  • the gorham worth house

2316 Auburncrest Ave – This pending listing in the heart of Mt. Auburn is a historic oasis. Surrounded by lower priced properties, this home sets an exception for its neighborhood. Our buyers’ agent successfully found the buyers of this home at the February open house.

  • A Charmer with Acreage

2088 Lindale Nicholsville Rd – The Aaron Fagin house was added to the national register of historic places. While this home isn’t as grand as the mansions in our portfolio, it is considered a very important example of early 19th century rural dwelling. Despite later additions, it remains very cottage-like in feel. Agricultural easements made this property more difficult to fit with a new owner. Despite (or perhaps because of) its uniqueness, it sold in just 23 days.
