In the mid-eighteenth century, few Cincinnati overlooks commanded attention like Grandin Road in what is now Hyde Park. Names like Longworth, Burnet, Grosbeak, Harrison and of course Grandin once lived here in sprawling estates overlooking the Ohio River valley.
In 1892, with a generation’s passing, a new era of businessmen and entrepreneurs saw Hyde Park for its true potential and built the fine homes stretching away from the overlook, to Hyde Park Square and beyond. Their expressed goal was to create a community for Cincinnati’s wealthy. Their vision became reality with many affluent families locating there, creating arguably the finest selection of architectural styles in the region.
Moving forward more than a century, Hyde Park today has maintained itself as a premier Cincinnati community. More than ever, people seek to make it their residence, in the fine older homes, among the gaslit streets, town square and manicured landscapes. It has truly established itself as both a community of affluence and appreciating value.
Some would say that the opportunity to build and enjoy a new home in Hyde Park is just a part of history due to a lack of buildable lots. But it isn’t! There are pockets of opportunity for those with vision and the ability to seize the opportunity. One such place is 2827 Lower Grandin Road. Once it contained the highest bridge in Cincinnati, connecting Hyde Park and Mt. Lookout. Today the storied Grandin Bridge is gone. The result is a peaceful, no-outlet street with quality homes and one excellent building lot – 2827 Lower Grandin Road.
