CPA’s 2016 spring house tour focused on Mt. Airy, featuring several homes, including the grand Cote Bonneville built in 1902. This historic home and Cincinnati treasure was at the heart of the former Raeburn Estate and has never before been open for public tour. It features a circular tower, octagonal turret as well as a carriage house.
Cote Bonneville is at the heart of the Raeburn subdivision tucked away off Colerain Avenue. This subdivision was developed in three stages from the 1920s to the 2010s.
Also featured on the tour was the Faber House, inspired by one of the homes in the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair. It was built in 1946 for Stuart Faber, the son of Herbert Faber who was the second owner of Cote Bonneville, and features a distinctive brick design. The Wright House is a modern, architect-designed “green” residence built in 2011 which achieved LEED Gold certification. The Kaneshiro House is an Asian-inspired California contemporary home built in 1985 with a private entry courtyard.
