If I were you, I would look around Maineville in Warren Country. There are some nice homes for sale out through there. Maineville itself is a small town, but you can be on 71 in about 10-15 minutes, depending how far out you live.

You might also think about looking around the Wilmington area. It's a nice community in its own right and you should be able to find a country home out there. It's in Clinton county.

Also, you might try Waynesville, north of Lebanon. It's also it's own community surrounded by rural countryside. It's also quite close to Lebanon, a larger town.

Another thing you might try is looking along state route 123 between Lebanon and Morrow in Warren County. This would give you an idea of the area, how long the commute would be, and you could scout out homes for sale along the way. This is how my parents found their current home. they drove the main state routes in the rural areas to get a feel for the area and then scouted out the for sale signs and made calls to go see the ones they liked(they checked them out on the Internet, too). They wound up buying one that is outside Blanchester, OH on a very quiet country road. They have an acre and our surrounded by fields but are only 10 mins from the grocery, bank, CVS, etc. It takes about one hour to get to downtown cincy from their house. They love it out there!

Thanks in advance.
Try up river from downtown out route 52 towards New Richmond. It's rural and 30 minutes from downtown.

I live in Oxford ( 27 miles from Cincinnati) and I would love to sell you my home. I don't have a
realtor so we are willing to consider a reasonable offer. I have a web site athttp://www.ohiotraveler.com/SIX-BEDROOM-COUNTRY-HOME-&-ESTATE-NEAR-CINCINNATI-FOR-SALE.htm
