From the Zillow listing:


Now offering, on historic Upland Place, the Swiss Chalet. Widely publicized in books/magazines, it”s described as one of Cincinnati”s most unusual and influential dwellings. Walking through this one, eyes widen. Mesmerizing. Built like a fortress, concrete between floors, thick timbers, 3000 handmade pegs. What a renovation opportunity. Wow.
What I Love About The Home
I love everything about this house and so does everyone who walks in. Each stair in the winding staircase is a different shape, the outdoor decks are a wonderful place to unwind. Entertain inside or on the patio around the pool. A full bath is on the patio level. It is in a wonderful neighborhood with fabulous neighbors. So much serious interest in the house already. Bittersweet for us as we are sad to part with it but thrilled that people will move in and love the chalet as much as our family.
