719 Philadelphia Street

This jewel box of a house is a charming Victorian with strategic updates that make it very livable for today. At some point in its 130 years, it had been split into a two-family, with the exterior door to the second floor apartment entering into what is now a lovely bathroom. The reworked first floor has positioned the kitchen as the centerpiece and given it a playful cement tile backsplash and fun lighting. There are three sitting areas in the home, allowing for different activities to take place, including reading, TV watching and game playing. The subtly different moods the owners have created in each of these spaces make the home truly live bigger than you would guess. The charming details, such as the owners’ blue and white china collection and blueprints of their former house in Ft. Mitchell, make it a very personal and welcoming home.
