There's plenty of great suburbs in Cincinnati, but one of the most unique corners of the city is Indian Hill. We're not only real estate experts in this area, but we also have two long-time residents and alumni on our team - Mike Hines and Laura Wogen, who know all there is to know about this beautiful community.
In this blog, we'll give you first-hand knowledge into why we love Indian Hill! But first, watch our video below!
1. The Beautiful Rural & Serene Setting
You'll know when you're driving down an Indian Hill street. With the winding tree lined roads, spacious lots and charming vibe, it's no wonder why so many vie for this neighborhood!
This feeling is created specifically by a few key factors such as the 1, 3 & 5 acre zoning rule, the fact that you won't see any commercial properties in Indian Hill, and in the Village of Indian Hill, 99.0% of the population owns their homes, while approximately only 1.0% rent. Check out the History of the Village of Indian Hill Green Area Trust from the Green Areas Advisory Committee Here.
