As promised, today we’re taking a tour of this charming yellow-painted Victorian home in Columbia Tusculum, which was the first neighborhood founded in the Cincinnati area (then known as Losantiville) in the late 1700s. (To read more about it, check out yesterday’s post.)
It was on the market earlier this year and I found interior photos on the MLS site (it sold in February ’08 for $205,000). According to the Hamilton County Auditor, it was built in 1890 and has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths.
Let’s take the tour!
I’m intrigued by that door that’s way up off the ground in the kitchen. What do you suppose that is? Where does it lead?
I can’t even imagine the amount of work that would be involved with a house like this that’s over 100 years old. It looks like it needs a little updating and fresh paint (I’m not crazy about the kitchen, for one thing), but I love the bones of it–the staircase, the fireplaces, the woodwork, and all the big windows. Do you?
