I'm with Goyguy. GLendale (The Village of Glendale, Ohio) is likely to be more what you are looking for. And Wyoming, right next door, is worth a look to. Advantages of both:

1. Short commute to Sharonville
2. Old (for US) houses, on large lots with big trees
3. Real community feel
4. We're where people come to walk and run over their lunch times
5. Community activities
6. More international flavor than in many other neighborhoods
7. You don't have to drive through shopping mall traffic to get to either one.
8. Real estate prices (esp against the pound) = you cen get good house for the money

I am from Houston, but i worked in Cincinnati for about 7 months several years ago. My office was in Forest Park, and i stayed in Sharonville. My favorite place in all of Cincinnati was Glendale. It had a great small village type feel with beautiful older homes on large lots with many mature trees. My favorite Cincinnati restaurant was the Iron Horse in Glendale. Houston is my home, but if i were to move to Cincinnati (a very nice city by the way), I would try to move to Glendale.

Default Hyde Park, E. Hyde Park, Mt. Lookout

Somebody else mentioned Hyde Park and I'd give it a look before you settle in. It has the walkable neighborhoods with shops, restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs (look up Hap's pub on Erie st. in particular) that you were looking for, as well as a wide variety of housing options. Of all the places I've lived in Cincinnati, it and Mt. Lookout were the most likely to have people out and walking around in all seasons, making it seem much more of a community. The drive to Sharonville will be a bit longer than if you live in the northern suburbs of Cincy, but my wife and I and many of our friends commuted to Blue Ash and rarely had any complaints about the drive. I agree that Glendale and Mariemont have merit as options, but to have an area that you really enjoy to walk around after dinner or on weekends, check out Hyde Park and East Hyde Park and Mt. Lookout.
