Often referred to as an "undiscovered gem" among Cincinnati's historic neighborhoods, North Avondale offers a rich stock of historic architecture, from modest bungalows to sprawling mansions. Initially laid out in the 1890's as a residential subdivision just 3.5 miles from downtown, the stately homes in North Avondale represent a variety of architectural styles, including English Medieval, Tudor Renaissance, Greek Revival, English Cottage Revival and Italian Renaissance. Residents range from doctors and lawyers, to symphony conductors, to politicians and professors, to anything in between, but all share a unique love for the urban neighborhood and the wooded oasis it provides.
Diversity also runs rich in North Avondale, while more and more families with children have been moving in as people discover all that the neighborhood has to offer. In addition, the recently reconstructed North Avondale Montessori School is one of the more successful elementary schools in the city, complimented by the private New School Montessori program just down the street. Combine this with the Avon Woods Nature Preserve and the Clinton Hills Swim Club, and it's hard to believe that North Avondale will remain an "undiscovered gem" for much longer.
