Tanglewood is a historic home well situated amid more than two lush acres 15 minutes from downtown Cincinnati. Originally built as a country villa, the home has been designed and remodeled by Cincinnati’s famed architects, Samuel Hannaford, James W McLaughlin and John Scudder Adkins with great attention to detail. Today, it is a fine Colonial Revival home of 6,800sq, with an imposing Tuscan porch and appears as it was last remodeled in 1924 with sympathetic conservation and preservation underway as modern conveniences are added. A period elevator runs from the basement to the third floor and a widow’s walk above offers a panoramic view down the valley to Cincinnati. The interior is generously and comfortably furnished by antiques and curios collected from world travels by three generations of the family that calls it home. The first floor offers 11ft high ceilings and large French doors that create an open flow of rooms from the library (there are more than 5,000 volumes throughout the home), living room, solarium, entrance hall and dining room. The dining room (18’x24’) features the rare ‘El Dorado’ French scenic landscape wallpaper by Zuber and a full butler’s pantry beyond. With 14 spacious rooms in all, there are many unique features. The lawns are in the style of an English landscape garden; very natural and organic and are at their prime in early spring. It includes gently rolling lawns leading from house to woodland, shrubberies with long graveled walks through bamboo and a pawpaw patch, mature trees, sweeping planted beds, and picturesque garden architecture that encourages exploration of its park-like setting to find a quiet nook for reading on one of the more than 20 garden benches tucked away to frame a view. A circular drive leads around the house and leads to the four car carriage house with a chauffeur's room. A decorative stamped concrete patio wraps around the back of the home. Ample parking is available on the property, as well as on street. Additional photos are available of this one of a kind home that can accommodate many different venues.
