You might not have known this but Cincinnati has one of the best examples of Italianate architecture in the United States. Over-the Rhine, Prospect Hill and the East End all feature this style of house built primarily by German-American immigrants that lived in the densely populated areas. Across the river Newport and Covington also feature many Italianate homes.
They are known for their overhanging eaves with cornices or brackets sometimes in pairs and decorative projecting window heads and curved window caps. Often they also have recessed doorways.
Is this your house style? Talk a walk on Main street in OTR or on Milton in Prospect Hill and you will see many examples of this wonderful style.
