Cincinnati’s Hyde Park neighborhood has a long and proud tradition of older, beautiful homes in park-like settings. However, one of the most unique buildings in Hyde Park is the Cincinnati Mushroom House.
It’s not for sale right now, but you can still drive by and marvel at this unique home. Located at 3331 Erie Ave, the mushroom house was created by architecture professor Terry Brown. He spent fourteen years modifying his home using warped shingles. The oddly shaped windows are inset with stained glass. The shingles round out from the windows, making it look as though the home grew up around the windows. The inside is equally interesting, but since it is privately owned, you can take a peek here.
Hyde Park is a beautiful neighborhood. It’s a great place to live since you’ll find retail shops and restaurants within walking distance. If you like ice cream, make sure to stop by Graeter’s Ice Cream. It is worth moving to Cincinnati just for their ice cream.
Hyde Park Square
Hyde Park Square is the heart of the district. Here you’ll find small specialized shops for one-of-a-kind shopping. The restaurants tend to be small and unique. No matter what you have a taste for – ethnic, bbq, pubs, bagels and more — you’ll find it here. The square also hosts local events. Come for a visit on October 1 for the Hyde Park Art. You find fine arts in practically every medium created by local artists from Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
