This Historic OTR Bank is Now a Hip Home with Rooftop Patio — and It's For Sale

Situated on Over-the-Rhine's bustling Main Street, this historic property was built in 1853 and has been host to several businesses over its nearly a century-and-a-half of life. When it was initially built, the building's facade sported Italianate architecture similar to other properties along the street. According to the current homeowner, it was first a goldsmith and jewelry store, then a parasol shop, church and a poster gallery. The building was eventually converted into Buckeye Savings and Loan in 1931, during which Art Deco limestone panels were added to the front of the building, and a Warner Elevator was installed. The current owners purchased the property in 2012, which had been an "empty shell" for over 20 years. The building has since been renovated into a 3 bedroom/2.5 bathroom urban abode, featuring exposed brick, an updated kitchen, one-car garage and a rooftop patio with spectacular views of the neighborhood and city (perfect for parade-watching). And the aforementioned original elevator from 1931. Located at 1302 Main St., the home is priced at $779,000 and is tax-abated. Showings will be available starting Sept. 26. Reach out to listing agent Walt Gibler for more info about the property.
