Somewhere around Harrison Ohio perhaps. The commute won't be nearly as bad as dealing with 71/75 traffic. Or maybe consider N. Kentucky. But then you will get hammered with commute times.

I hate to be debby downer, but a rural area 30 minutes from the middle of Cincinnati just isn't going to happen.

The desire for rural living close to job centers is the reason that suburbs exist.

However, it does get rural much faster if you head west or south into Kentucky.

Good point. Something will have to be sacrificed. Either a longer commute or OP will need to settle for something less rural.

35 minutes will get you to very rural Clermont County from downtown via US 52. The areas to check out would include New Richmond, Monroe Township, Moscow, Washington Township.

I don't drive Columbia Parkway regularly, but I can't imagine it won't back up during rush hour. It might be 30 mins to Moscow normally, but is it really about that during peak travel times?

You're talking about working in the most central location in the city as possible. If you're looking for a rural FEEL there are plenty of places within the city that are tucked away from other people. The hills do a great job of carving out little enclaves. If you're looking to avoid city taxes or something like that, you probably won't have any luck.
What do you need in a rural property? Acreage? Darkness? Quiet at night?

I had not considered rush hour traffic, yes, 15 minutes more at least should be tacked on to/from Moscow during rush hour and that would be mainly spent getting out of Downtown. The best route would not be Columbia Pkwy. 471 S to 275N, then the New Richmond exit onto US 52 to Moscow is a very straight shot.

3200 Vine street is in the Clifton area. Some where along I-74 near I-275 or Rt 50 near Cleves. Im not sure about the school system in those area's.

If you are talking the Clifton area, you are talking 35 to 45 minutes mininum for anything resembling rural. Not knocking South Bend, but it is not Cincinnati. Also the further you go out toward the rural areas the more limited your rental selections will be. Good luck in your pursuit, as you will need it.

What about Miamitown? That seems pretty rural, but with easy access to Uptown.
