Back in the day, the corner of Hamilton and Bruce avenues in Northside was known as Millionaires’ Corner. The homes on that corner belonged to the four wealthiest men in Cincinnati, three being Andrew Jergens, his brother, Herman, and Charles Geilfus, who were the owners of the Andrew Jergens Soap Company (you may just know it today simply as “Jergens”).
Today, only Herman Jergens' mansion remains at 4354 Hamilton Ave. The estate along with its surviving carriage house sits on just over half an acre just across the street from Jergens Park, and it’s now for sale.
The main house has been featured in home tours and magazines, according to the listing, and features stunning stained-glass windows, ornate fireplaces – the dining room’s fireplace mantel was crafted by Cincinnati Art Carvers, whose work can also be found at the Cincinnati Art Museum – and other original finishes.
The home also comes with six to nine bedrooms, depending on the use of the rooms on the third floor, a gourmet kitchen and a butler’s pantry. Outside, you’ll find the gorgeous grounds that will remind you of an English garden, complete with a boxwood garden, cobblestone pathways, fountains and meticulously cared-for landscaping.
The estate’s carriage house has also been thoroughly modernized with its stylish kitchen, open-concept living space and spa-like bathrooms. It also comes with mixed-use zoning.The home is for sale at $1.25 million. For more information, contact Kate Bridgman with KB Real Estate/Comey & Shepherd Realtors. Find the original listing here.
