Tour Stop #11: 103 15th Street

Great views, inside and out

A pair of regal lions greets you outside this beautifully renovated 1910 house. For the current owner, who bought it 5 years ago, the interior was just right, allowing him to spend time designing the fabulous deck, patio and terraced gardens (each level has both water and fire features). The view from each level and from the upstairs bathroom and bedroom balcony stretches across Newport and downtown Cincinnati. Inside, the owner displays many interesting Cincinnati-related items, including Crosley radios, a safe from J. Baum, and a propeller designed by a Cincinnati engineering firm. Other notable accessories you will see are andirons made from 17th century cannonballs, a sign from Crosley Field and a stunning newel post lamp that came from another house on this street.
