STEP BACK IN TIME
Experience the charm of the past in a home that will take you into the future. This enchanting home pre-dates the founding of Hyde Park in the 1890s, when a group of prominent Cincinnati businessmen—known as the Mornington syndicate—set out to create a community for the city's leading families. At the time, the now vibrant Hyde Park was rural farmland dotted by orchards and criss-crossed by dirt roads and horse cart paths. The home likely served originally as an orchard keeper's cottage.
Dubbed Mornington Cottage by the current homeowners, the home has been lovingly cared for and expanded over its 150+ year history to include central air conditioning, a full kitchen, a first-floor full bath, and a two-car garage.
With a primary bedroom and full bath located on the first floor, the home offers easy single-floor living. Additional living space is found on the second floor, while the unfinished basement with stone wall construction provides utility and storage areas.
The home's location—between Monteith and Duncan Avenues and just steps from local landmark Carl's Deli—is unbeatable. Hyde Park Square shopping, dining, entertainment, churches and schools are just moments away.
The house has not been on the market in decades, having passed between family members since the 1960s—making its current availability a rare opportunity to own a beloved piece of Hyde Park history.
