The Beyond the Curb series gives you an insider’s view of some of the coolest residential and commercial properties in the river cities. We feature a variety of properties: apartments, condos, historic mansions and single-family residences throughout NKY’s eclectic urban neighborhoods. We even include in-progress rehabs to let you see how gorgeous exteriors can be saved and remade inside to fit your modern lifestyle. Our goal is to encourage urban living in NKY.

You will also experience the benefits of the urban lifestyle, as you discover convenient amenities, local businesses and the strong sense of community that exists in Northern Kentucky’s river cities. You’ll also see the pride and dedication local residents have toward their communities – as neighbors turn out to volunteer in all of our featured properties!

Beyond the Curb offers something for everyone, from young professionals and families to empty nesters, as well as those interested in historic preservation, interior design, and most importantly:  URBAN LIVING!
