Oakwood – Cincinnati’s most significant estate residence, built with painstaking attention to detail, by Henry Probasco, constructed over five years from 1859 to 1864 on 1.6 Acres – and listed on the National Historical Register as a superb example of Norman Romanesque style. “Oakwood” is a rare combination of “olde world” design well-suited for today’s lifestyle, and offers privacy and convenience.           

The magnificent porte cochère framed by hand-carved stone arches and columns is the first suggestion of quality, and features the original stepping stones once used for carriages. The exterior is accented with friezes of native botanicals carved in deep bas relief – which is only a hint of the beauty awaiting you inside. A terraced walk way leads through the woodlands from a charming Terrace which spans the rear of the home.  The rear exterior also boasts carved historical symbols which compliment the gardens.           

An impressive cathedral Oak door opens to a grand 40’ formal Foyer crafted in rich, warm wood tones.  Norman arches and unique capitals of unparalleled beauty, crafted by famed 19th century wood carver, Henry Fry, adorn every room entry  in this 8500 Sq.Ft., 6 bedroom  interior. Grand formal rooms are located toward the front and abound with exquisite wall and ceiling  European  influences.  The Library/Family Room is comfortable and inviting with its handsome burgundy marble fireplace, book cases, painted ceiling and carved wooden corbels – in addition to a cozy reading niche. In keeping with today’s home styles, there is a large Billiard Room with Adirondack fireplace.  One enters the 26’ Dining Room through carved Oak pocket doors under a beamed hand-painted ceiling. An intricately carved fireplace and built-in carved buffet add to the elegance of this grand room.           

A totally remodeled Kitchen, with adjoining planning room and catering workroom,  offers “miles” of  granite finishes and today’s conveniences. A grand staircase, located to the rear of the formal Foyer  and crafted over a 3-year period, boasts an elaborate balustrade with endless non-repeat botanical and geometric designs and ascends to the Rotunda, where one will find a carved minstreled balcony.  Natural daylight  streaming through towering stained glass windows illuminates your ascent.             

A spacious remodeled Master Suite, featuring European style hand-painted ceiling accented with gold leaf, features a carved marble fireplace, adjoining marble bath accented with remnants of the original Oakwood fireplaces – and a luxurious Dressing Room with custom storage spaces. A private Home Office is conveniently located on the second floor as well.                 

Everyone will love the Tower, with its circular paneled staircase, where panoramic views of the hills and valleys await you!              

Beneath the grand staircase in the Foyer is a second staircase leading down to a large temperature controlled Wine Cellar, which boasts the original herringbone patterned brick floor, and generous space for entertaining your guests at a wine tasting event.  Double Garages with convenient built-in storage for your convenience.
