Site Plan

Similar to the neighboring homes on Parkview Avenue, the Starter Home 2.0 has a driveway running along the side of the house to a single car garage at the rear of the property, conveniently accessed via a patio and rear entry.

Basement Plan

The basement is home to the major utilities for the house with the furnace, water heater, sump pump, utility sink, and washer and dryer located on this floor. It can also be easily finished to provide additional livable square footage as desired.

First Floor Plan

With a limited square footage to work with, the first floor is all about maximizing space, flexibility and flow. This is achieved through a wide open floor plan with the living, dining, and kitchen areas combined into one large volume. 9' ceilings, large windows, and an open stair help give the first floor a feeling of spaciousness as well. 

Second Floor Plan

Pleasant Ridge is regarded as one of the best neighborhoods in Cincinnati to raise a young family, but with few starter homes in the area having 3 bedrooms and even fewer having 2 full baths, many families quickly outgrow their homes. For this reason, the second floor is designed with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, including a master suite with a walk-in closet, linen closet, and master bath with double vanities and enlarged shower.
