But Green’s The Color Of Spring…And I Think That’s What I Want To Be
February 5, 2013
Anyone familiar with Rose Hill Avenue in the historic neighborhood of North Avondale—lined with gaslights, mature trees, and gorgeous mansions built at the turn of the century—knows the “green brick house”.
Actually, it’s green enameled brick tile. The tile, cutting edge for its time, was often used in the early 20th century for the light-wells of the first skyscrapers, and the interiors of industrial plants. The address is 3937 Rose Hill Avenue. And it is currently in the market for a new steward, with a list price of $299,000.
Built in 1907, it was home to pork-packer Charles E. Roth and designed by Architect Anthony Kunz, Jr., who trained with the Cincinnati firm G. & A. Brink.

I grew up with this house. It was once the house of the U.S. Olympic boxing team’s coach, whose daughter I went to grade school with. It also has some tragic recent history. It’s a beautiful house.
