Madeira: Attracting a Village
— Young buyers join the neighborhood at Camargo Ridge, upscale community linking Indian Hill to Madeira, potentially the fastest-selling project in Robert Lucke Group history
— Urban Living meets country charm: Younger buyers embracing old-school features. Robert Lucke Group offering homes starting at $650,000, up to $3 million.
[CITY OF MADEIRA, Ohio ~ October 7, 2016] Reflecting a national trend of younger, Millennial-aged home buyers drifting a tad further from the urban core, the city of Madeira has emerged – specifically, the Camargo Ridge development bordering Indian Hill – as a new hot spot for the next generation.
“Madeira is made for Millenials,” says Joe Linz, vice president and partner at Star ONE Realtors Inc., the marketing agent working in tandem with the builder of Camargo Ridge, Robert Lucke Group. Camargo Ridge was recently featured in The Cincinnati Business Courier.
“You don’t always have buyers in their 30s moving into a neighborhood with an entrance price of $650,000, but Camargo Ridge is not your everyday community, which is reflected in the incredible demand that we’ve seen for our lots,” Linz said.
At the third-generation Robert Lucke Group – building homes throughout Greater Cincinnati for more than a half-century – Camargo Ridge could end up being the fastest-selling community in the company’s history, dating back to 1953.
“We were looking for something that was closer to the old neighborhood feel, that village concept, which is why we started looking at Madeira in the first place. Camargo Ridge gave us that feeling immediately,” said Chris D., a Camargo Ridge buyer along with his wife, Linda D. (last names withheld to protect privacy).
“There aren’t many places left in Cincinnati where you can still get that, but this is one of them.”
Camargo Ridge from The Robert Lucke Group: Midway Between the Flight from Suburbia to Downtown
“We came from suburbia, a 250-home neighborhood in Mason, and that was great, as was Mason, but we were just looking for something different now,” Linda D. added.
“When we first stumbled across Camargo Ridge, it was just a hillside and some trees, but credit the Robert Lucke Group and Star ONE for doing such a great job of visualizing what this could be,” said John C., another Camargo Ridge buyer, along with his wife, Shelly B. (last name also withheld, per privacy concerns).
“Working with the Robert Lucke Group has taken, what is considered to be a nightmare for most people, building your own custom home, but for us, it was an absolute joy to work with Scott (Lucke) and his people,” John C. continued.
“When most people hear you’re building a home, the first thing they say is, ‘Oh, I feel so sorry for you.’ But we found that to be the exact opposite,” said John C.
“Their contractors were highly professional. There was such incredible coordination throughout the building process. From the first day, to the day they handed us the keys, they were a well-oiled machine, with activity it seems every single day. They kept us informed and updated throughout the entire process. The Robert Lucke Group never lost sight of making us part of the process, and remember that we were the homeowners, and they wanted us to feel absolutely wonderful about our new home,” John C. said.
Custom Homes from The Robert Lucke Group starting at $650,000
Located a few miles from Kenwood and Interstate 71 – as well as providing excellent access to Madison Road and the rest of East Side Cincinnati – Robert Lucke Group and Star ONE are offering custom homes starting at $650,000, to upwards of $3 million.
“Older buyers will always be looking to downsize, and we’re had a tremendous reception from that segment of the market, but it does appear that we’re seeing more Millennials looking for this product,” Linz says.
IN CONCLUSION: FROM THE BUYER
“I would put builders in three categories,” concluded Chris D.
“There are some builders, about whom you hear nothing but negative.
“There are many, many others about whom you’ll hear both good and bad.
“It’s the very rare few that I would put in the category of the Robert Lucke Group, which is, all you ever hear about that company and their people is good.”

THE COMMONS AT MANHATTAN HARBOUR:
LUXURY, SINGLE-FAMILY RIVERFRONT LIVING ON OHIO RIVER WATERFRONT
Spring 2014 home season delivers the rarest in all of Cincinnati real estate:
Single-Family, Detached, Riverfront Living. On the Waterfront: The Commons.
Riverfront Luxury Living with Your Own Garage – Yard – Patio – Deck – Basement.
[DAYTON, Ky. ~ May 23, 2014] Life on the waterfront in Cincinnati – and any city or town, really, with a riverfront/waterfront view or property, for that matter – is a romantic journey and lifestyle, a return to roots, prime location(s), urbanism, and a more nature-friendly society and community.
Luxury living along the Cincinnati waterfront hits a new high-water mark with the Spring 2014 introduction of The Commons at Manhattan Harbour, an exquisite line of million-dollar, single-family homes from custom homebuilder Walker Homes and Robinson Sotheby’s International Realty in Dayton, Ky., a partnership hatched at a local HOMEARAMA event.
“Lee (Robinson, owner of Robinson Sotheby’s) and I met at a HOMEARAMA, where Walker Homes was building, and we both agreed we’d like to figure something out where we could work together on something similar,” said Brent Walker, owner and president of the second-generation Cincinnati custom homebuilder (www.walkerhomes.com), based in Loveland.
With The Commons at Manhattan Harbour, located along a lush bend of the Ohio River just upriver from Cincinnati, Walker Homes and Robinson Sotheby’s (www.robinsonsir.com) are creating that rarest of all Cincinnati real estate products: single-family, detached homes with their own yards, garages, basements, patios and decks, “from which you can almost dangle your feet in the Ohio River,” said Robinson.
“There are beautiful, breathing waterfront properties all along the Cincinnati waterfront, from The Ascent in Covington to SouthShore in Newport, just to name a few,” said Robinson, a specialist in the high-end Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky housing game.
Robinson merged his local company a few years back with the ultimate brand in luxury real estate, Sotheby’s Real Estate of New York.
– Ranging from 3,100 to 4,500 SF in five concept plans, emphasizing huge windows and glass;
– With prices starting at $949,000 and ranging up to $1.4 million or more;
– Including 2- and 3-car garages, covered porch, basements, Master Suites on 1st or 2nd floor;
– On lots measuring 60 feet x 150 feet, backing up to the Ohio River waterline;
– Offering the best views of Mt. Adams and Downtown Cincinnati, from Northern Kentucky;
– Featuring private offices, formal dining rooms, hearth rooms, and 2nd-floor balconies.
One home has already been sold; construction of the second home will likely begin next month, or July, for a spec design home, offering residents five designs from the master schematic.
Riverfront Housing at Historic NKy. Bend in the Ohio River
Developer David Imboden of DCI Properties has been preparing the $400 million Manhattan Harbour, known by the locals as Manhattan Bathing Beach, since 2005.
Adding Robinson Sotheby’s International Realty in Hyde Park adds “a high-end level of professionalism, excellence and successful service” for the uber-elite housing stock at Manhattan Harbour, Imboden said.
“Riverfront is riverfront. It’s not riverside, or riverview, or some rivertown,” added Robinson, who joined the Manhattan Harbour team last month, “and that’s what truly makes Manhattan Harbour unique.
“David’s been a successful part of Cincinnati’s East End development, right across the river, so he knows the market,” Robinson said.
Robinson recently closed a string of deals for waterfront property on the Ohio side, Corbin Park, in the $750,000 range.
“What we’ve seen along the Ohio River waterfront, in terms of the high-end housing market, has almost exclusively been condominium development. And they have been successful,” said Robinson.
“Go another five blocks from one of those, and a homeowner can have a single-family home instead of condo, and to many people that’s a huge benefit who want to own their own home.”
“People want to park their own car, in their own garage, and walk into their own home, not to some common area to get to their mailbox, to get to an elevator, that’s down the hall or through the lobby,” Robinson added.
