This 1892 Fort Thomas Home Once Owned by a Former Civil War Colonel is For Sale

Featuring a charming covered porch, original woodwork, beautiful arched windows, custom period fixtures and soaring ceilings, the home at 1 Greene Street in Fort Thomas will transport you back in time to the era when it served as the officer’s quarters for a former Civil War soldier.

Built in 1892, the colonial-style home sits at what once was the gated entry point of the original military installation in Fort Thomas. It housed Col. Harry Clay Egbert, who fought for the Union during the Civil War and later served in the Army during the Spanish-American War and the Philippine-American War. Long past its days housing Army officers, this home is now a stunning blend of historical and modern. And with it being just steps away from Tower Park, it offers a front-row seat to the city’s parades and events.

The home has three finished levels, five bedrooms, three bathrooms and boasts an updated eat-in kitchen with a butler’s pantry. The dining room and living spaces also come with plenty of space to entertain guests – or you can move the party outside to a large patio with its wood-burning fireplace.

This home is listed for $915,000. For more information, contact Cindy Shetterly with Keller Williams. Find the original listing here.
