We offer at public auction this custom-built home on a large lot in one of Cincinnati's most desirable and historic neighborhoods. Located on the corner of Grandin and Edwards Roads in Hyde Park, this Bedford stone ranch, of 1957 vintage, exhibits many desirable influences of Modern Design. This home needs updating and restoration.


The front door of the home is flanked by leaded Art Nouveau-style glass side lights which welcome you into an entry foyer. To the right is an oversized living room with built-in cabinetry. To the left is a large dining room with crystal chandelier. Both rooms have expansive picture windows overlooking the front lawn. There are hardwood floors throughout the home. Off the dining room is a walk-through pantry with floor-to-ceiling built-ins, convenient for entertaining. The pantry leads to the kitchen area which includes a large eat-in kitchen and a summer kitchen as well. The fully-equipped primary kitchen has ample space and includes the original chrome-trimmed cabinetry with frosted glass accents and Formica Deco-design countertops. Sliding doors afford a view of the rear, covered patio with tiled floor overlooking the backyard. The summer kitchen is off the primary kitchen and includes a Jenn-Air range, refrigerator and washer & dryer. The summer kitchen also includes floor-to-ceiling built-in drawers and cupboards and loads of additional storage space.

Off the kitchen is a large family room with wood burning fireplace. The family room includes a closet and built-in shelving as well. Sliding glass doors open from the family room to a Florida room with louvered Jalousie glass windows on three sides. The rear patio and yard are accessed from the Florida room as well as the kitchen.

An L-shaped hallway connects the bedrooms to the main living areas of the home. The hallway contains two double closets, as well as built-in drawers and cupboard space. The large master bedroom includes two double closets and a tiled full bath. A second full bath with linen closet is located along the hallway which leads to the large second bedroom, also with two double closets.

The full-sized lower level is accessed from the kitchen and includes an expansive family room with brick wall and wood burning fireplace. This room is highlighted by a bar area with mirrored back-bar, built-in cabinetry and a stainless steel bar sink. A large utility room includes a third full bath with shower, washer and dryer hookups and porcelain double laundry tubs. This area would make an ideal workshop, studio or office. The furnace room is vast and includes a shelved storage room. The lower level opens into the three-car garage.

The home has updated wiring with breaker box and a Carrier Weather-Maker furnace, as well as central AC. The major appliances stay with the home. The large, landscaped lot has become overgrown. It shows evidence of years of passionate gardening, and includes a multitude of carefully-chosen varieties of flora that continue to thrive.

Remodel and modernize this well-built, custom home or utilize the lot and its premier location and build.

We invite your interest and your participation in the auction of this unique property.
