Cincy Modern Masterpiece ‘Weston House’ Is For Sale, and it Has an Indoor Pool


The home of influential art collectors and philanthropists the late Alice and Harris Weston is for sale.

The Weston name is well-known in the Cincinnati arts community, permanently leaving their legacy on establishments like the Weston Art Gallery, a contemporary permanent gallery at the Cincinnati Art Museum, and as committee members at the Contemporary Art Center. In addition to their contributions to the arts and their own collections, Alice Weston was also an artist and photographer herself.

The home (2305 Salutaris Ave.) was completed in 1986 by esteemed Cincinnati architects Carl Strauss and Ray Roush as their last joint commission before retirement and is one of the greatest examples of modernist housing in Cincinnati.

The Westons dreamed of building a contemporary home with river views — and after waiting close to a decade for the right lot, they set their sites on a one-acre property with stunning, panoramic views of the Ohio River, tucked away at the end of Salutaris Avenue in East Walnut Hills.

"Mrs. Weston said that they chose to have a house designed that took full advantage of its river view site over consideration of displaying their collections. Visiting the home one could say they achieved both," reads a press release from Cincinnati Modern.

Spanning over 5,400-square-feet, the home features four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms and boasts walls of windows, pouring light into the first level's open floor plan, studded with built-ins. The skylit kitchen offers plenty of storage and entertainment opportunities, and a massive window overlooking the lower-level indoor pool atrium.

The home is an undeniable masterpiece, designed for true lovers of art.

The home is priced at $1,347,288 and the listing will go live on Jan. 29.
