Hi all - I am moving to Cincinnati in a month and have been trying to research apartments online, but have had limited success. I am looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom, something upscale, can pay $1000-$1500/month. I would like to be walking distance to one of the squares.

So far I have found the Drexel in Oakley, but that's about it. Any suggestions of other buildings or property managers?

The Drexel at Oakley pretty much stands alone in the area, and it's a nice option. I guarantee you can find apartments or houses for the price you want to pay, but many of these are going to be one off type situations. It's an area that doesn't lend itself (space-wise) to hold many large apartment complexes, let alone upscale ones. My advice is contact a local realtor with some connections to a rental agency and they can point out some options.

Default Any luck?

Hi-

I'm going to be Relocating to Cincinnati and wanted to know if you had any luck with your search for an apartment in Hyde Park/Oakley/Mt Lookout ? My search criteria are pretty much exactly the same as yours and I was hoping you might be able to give me some advice.

Thanks in advance!

Jess

Jess, you will have no trouble in that price range. You can look around HP Square, But I would start On Madison Road and head east. There are probably 50 places to live in your price range between Grandin Road and Madison and Masidon and Edwards.

Same process for Erie from Madison to HP Country Club.

One of the fellows here moved to Chestnut Station and said he was satisfied with it. Its at Ashworth and Erie. Its walkable to East HP (where there are plenty of spots of entertainment and Ault PArk (the nicest park in Cincinnati).

So good luck to you.

Drexel is the main upscale, new construction apartment complex. The Drexel at Oakley Apartments. There's also Brookstone Village, near Crossroads in Oakley. Luxury Apartments in Cincinnati | Brookstone Village Apartments

If you want a smaller, older apartment building (vs. complex), there are more choices. Grandin Properties has some lovely buildings on and near Hyde Park Square. Grandin Properties- Greater Cincinnati Apartments and Corporate Suites - 513.871.7110. There's also Paradrome Properties: Index.

Then there are houses that have been divided into apartments and rented directly by the owners, so you'll find these the old-fashioned way: craigslist.

Brookstone may not be what it was 15 years ago. Beware the apartment complex that has to put an obnoxious flashing sign board outside to attract tenants.

Just a word of advice....before you go shelling out that kind of money for a place in a complex, do yourself a favor and look at the places in the privately owned 2 family buildings dotting the Hyde Park/Oakley/Mt. Lookout area. You'll have to look on Craigslist, or the Enquirer classifieds to find them. Or maybe drive around the area. I once looked at a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor of a two-family home on one of the side streets off of Markbreit (Millsbrae? Eileen? I don't recall which of those two it was) - and it was phenomenal. The building was rather nondescript from the outside, but the apartment was amazing. Original woodwork (stained, not painted), brick walls in the eat-in kitchen, stained glass windows, unique layout with a sun room, clawfoot tub in the bath, etc. Back then it was about $575 a month, but that was years ago. The same place today could easily rent for $900-$1000 a month.

Yea, I started to dump on those complexes too. I'd never live in either one. Yuck.

But, I put my advice up there and each to his own. And the OP started with interest in it. So be it.
