For over 100 years the homes of Hyde Park, in Cincinnati, Ohio have stood shoulder-to-shoulder on their gaslit streets. Over the years, homes in the community have appreciated quite a bit making it even today a destination for people seeking a quality lifestyle in an old-style suburban setting.
Today many of the homes that were built in the early 1900’s and earlier have become very difficult to maintain. Slate roofs, cloth wiring, poor insulation, drafty windows, cast iron pipes and clay drains, to name a few of the issues.
It can be a stressful time for streets that haven’t known change in a century. But today, custom home builders, like Classic Living Homes are embracing the opportunity (and challemge) to work with local communities and residents to find equitable solutions through raising old-stock housing and replacing it with architecturally relevant homes that comform to their predicessor home and those surrounding it.
The new home owners get the best of both worlds – walkability, a quality place top call home, and proximity to the urban core of Cincinnati. Plus there are tax considerations that can be favorable too from local government.
Surrounding homeowners, though they may have some dificulty with a change in landscape, will most likely see appreciating home values because of the new construction.
A perfect example of this has occured on Delta Avenue in Hyde Park. A century old structure was very outdated and was raised to make way for a new one that we believe embellishes the homes on upper Delta near Erie Avenue. You be the judge.
