The SpaceLuxurious, spacious, and very comfortable with a newer queen size bed along with being very quiet, safe, private should make a stay in this home as nice or better than the best hotels......
...short of the turn-down service. :-)
The house is convenient to all things in Cincinnati;
a ten/fifteen minute drive or less to virtually everything in Cincinnati.
The bus stop is a one minute walk away;
if need be.
It was a two family home;
a microwave, baking/toaster oven,
along with a refrigerator make it a living area more like
an apartment than any hotel room.
High ceilings, crown molding, ceiling fans, central air,
along with a back-up, additional, window unit air conditioner
for the warmest summer months that make the downstairs
cooler than the upstairs in this older home add to making
for a more luxurious experience.
High thread count sheets. Lots of choice in pillows.
A peaceful overlook of a very private backyard garden with nothing but flowering perennials, a re-circulating creek, waterfall, and pond gives the sound of water running if the window is opened.
A view of greenery and flowering plants,
Spring through Fall,
through the two windows that overlook the backyard garden in the bedroom and through a large, picture, window at the backend of the bathroom add to the sense of privacy, quiet, and beauty.
A Jacuzzi spa tub with water jets is against the bathroom's back
wall with a large picture window over-looking the garden.
A large, domed, skylight above the tub gives a view of the day or night sky in the remodeled, tiled, shower in black and white with bidet
along with a multiple wall and ceiling lights including a
built-in ceiling heat lamp for the feeling of extra warmth in the winter months.
You have your own, private, entrance to the second floor.
A chandelier and large, antique, stain glass window graces
the stairway on your way upstairs. The large chandelier
and nine foot window makes for a well-lit stairway/entryway. Guest AccessYou have your own, private, entrance to the apartment.

Spring Grove Village is rising in value.
The house is a three minute walk
a one minute drive from the second largest cemetery in the country,
inside city limits,
next to Arlington in DC.
The 733 acre area is a significant value for anyone who likes to get out and walk, run, explore and/or enjoy outdoor events.
The cemetery is viewed as a park and used as a park with regular events, tram tours, free outdoor movies, segway tours,
day and night nature tours,
concerts, owl nights, and much more.
The 733 acre area is, also, an arboretum with a nature preserve attached.
There are 16 large ponds with geese and two swans in the largest pond with fountains gushing water 30 feet into the air continuously,
large man made waterfall, and wooden walkways over parts of the ponds. Johnny Appleseed's bronze, true to life and size,
statue stands in symbol of America's many apple trees.
An area with a civil war cannon is dedicated to the civil war era.
Many mausoleums, old, gothic style church building, rolling hills,
labeled trees, bushes, and plants.
(URL HIDDEN) has it's own built-in calender of events.
It's worth viewing the site if you'd like to get out
for a walk during your stay.
37 miles of road used for walking and bike riding with 733 acres of well-tended perennial, flowering, plants, trees and bushes with large annual displays every year.
Most of the cities greenhouses, with retail shopping,
are in this neighborhood;
three of them in a row and a ten minute walk from the house. I know them well, of course, with the backyard perennial garden calling for new editions every year since 91
- a perennial plant, bush and vine garden around the re-circulating, backyard creek, waterfall and pond.
We are close to downtown via an entrance to I-75 just five minutes away.
It is centrally and most conveniently located.
We have a community, neighborhood, shared vegetable garden for those who want to participate.
Eight minutes from the University of Cincinnati with all the interests and offerings of a large college along with Xavier University being on the other side of the neighborhood about ten minutes away.
Close to many city parks and over-looks of the city.

There is a new park (10 minutes away) downtown:
just outside of Cincinnati's Music Hall
(home to our world-renowned orchestra, the opera and ballet)
is brand new;
offering live music, free outdoor movies,
'live' jazz and bluegrass every Thursday and Friday,
lots of green space, waterpark, walkways, public/free exercise:
free yoga and free salsa lessons.
There is parking underneath the park. Getting AroundIt seems like I've answered:
Convenient to everything.
Most all of Cincinnati is within 10 minutes; including the river.
The bus stop, going in both directions, is a minute walk from the door.
I may be available to pick you up at the airport and/or take you back; including showing you around town if you would so choose,
running some errands, a day of shopping?
- things of that sort. I enjoy getting out
and enjoying the events, festivals, art and music shows, concerts and restaurants in Cincinnati.
May be available to give a ride.
Uber is everywhere along with existing taxi companies. Other Things to NoteIf you are bringing someone else into my home
I need to know in advance.
Generally, I prefer to have it as a rule
that no one else comes in my home.
You are 15 minutes from downtown,
10 minutes from the University of Cincinnati,
10 minutes from Xavier University,
1 minute drive and a five minute walk from one of the largest inner city arboretums in the country with 37 miles of single lane road, 733 acres with many ponds filled with geese and ducks, waterfalls, and fountains.
8 minutes to the zoo
10 minutes from The Aronoff theater, Know Theater and The Playhouse in Eden Park.
10 minutes or less to 10 parks with overlooks of the city; as Cincinnati, like Rome, is built on seven hills.
8 minutes to the Natural History museum and the Lindner surround sound Omnimax theater inside the museum. It is the old
Union Terminal; the former train station hub of Cincinnati. That's quite the building which houses a children's museum as well.
15 minutes to the new Banks on the River with the Reds stadium and Bengals stadium on either side....including a large, new, outdoor music amphitheater.
Cincinnati is in the midst of a long awaited revival of downtown with many new restaurants that have outdoor, open-air, seating along the downtown sidewalks.
You can easily research this major resurgence as being one of the most thorough renewals
of the city's downtown area in the country;
including a new streetcar system nearing it's completion, now.
You can tell; I do like this city.
The city that reminds me most of Cincinnati is San Francisco
