It’s time to show you the actual houses that were on the North Avondale Home Tour last weekend. This 1937 Normandy Manor, known as The Levine House, will be our first stop.
The Levine House was built during the Great Depression. The Normandy Manor, or Norman Revival style, is less common in Cincinnati than the Tudor Revival, but the two share details like the hipped slate roof and the semi-circular Norman tower in front. There are diamond-pane casements in the tower and front bay window, and the front door is beneath a dramatic arch (shown below).
Cincinnati Magazine provided a supplement that featured photos of the interior of the Levine House. Since I wasn’t allowed to snap any myself, I scanned them for you to give you an idea of what we found inside:
Stay tuned–I’ll show you more photos from the house tour later today of the first luxury apartment building in the Cincinnati area, built in the 1920s.
