Renting an Apartment, Condo, or House

It's easier to find a home for rent than apartment rentals in Kenwood. If you're low on options, consider checking out the nearby towns of Concorde Hills, Deer Park, Dillonvale, Madeira, or Rossmoyne for serviced apartments and premier apartments too. Real estate prices in Kenwood tend to be more expensive than most places throughout Ohio. Average rental prices are a little higher than the regional average as well.

When to Start the Home Hunt

Any time of the year is fine to start hunting for your new home, but you will probably find the most options available in spring and early summer. Keep in mind that Kenwood is a census designated place, so you'll see Cincinnati addresses on lots of Kenwood properties. It's somewhat confusing, but look at a map to confirm that you're home hunting in your desired area. There are quite a few hotels in the area as well for your family and friends to stay at when they come visit you in your new home.

How to Get Yourself Ready

As you begin to explore apartment options in the area, make sure you have all your necessary documents in order. This typically includes a copy of your ID, your credit report, bank statements, pay stubs, letter of employment, references, and any other information your landlord might ask you for. Most of the architecture here ranges from 19th century colonial homes to 1970s split-level homes and modern, contemporary construction.

Kenwood Neighborhoods

Although Kenwood feels like one big neighborhood, there are a couple different parts that you should keep in mind while looking for a place to live. The area west of Kenwood Mall is great if you're looking to be in the middle of the action. For a quieter lifestyle, Kenwood Road Hill is a top neighborhood pick.

West of Kenwood Mall: This is a very pleasant area of Kenwood that is situated in the Indian Hills School System. Although many people in the market for places for rent overlook this area, a good real estate agent will direct you this way. You may have to put up with a steady stream of mall traffic on weekends, but this neighborhood is in the middle of it all - shopping, restaurants, and medical office facilities. There are over 180 shops in the area, so this is a great place for mall lovers and people seeking entertainment. About 60 of these shops are exclusive to the Cincinnati area, so that's something to be proud about if you like to shop at local businesses.

Kenwood Road Hill: Like many cities, most of the prime real estate is found in the hills. You can sometimes find rental homes, condos for rent, duplexes for rent, and luxury apartments on Kenwood Road Hill. There's a retirement community up there too, and residents boast of excellent views of the city, cleaner air to breathe, and lower humidity.

Top Apartments

Kugler Mill Square Apartments: The apartments at 8481 Beech Avenue have one, two, and three-bedroom apartments and are located just minutes away from world-class shopping.

Living in Kenwood

From the Cincinnati area, you can easily reach Kenwood by driving northeast on Interstate-75 or Interstate-71. Love to Shop? Then keep Kenwood in mind, because this is Ohio's premier shopping destination. The Kenwood Towne Center is best described as being "upscale by Cincinnati standards," with lots of high end stores, eateries, and areas to relax. The mall in Kenwood is far from a well-kept secret, so you'll be joined by lots of other locals and visitors when you venture out to shop. Some of the most popular stores include The Apple Store, Restoration Hardware, Nordstrom, Lush, Michael Kors, The Container Store, and Dillard's.

Some of the most popular eateries are near the Kenwood Towne Center, including The Cheesecake Factory, Maggiano's, and Chipotle. However, one of the best places in the area to go for Italian food is Barresi's Italian Restaurant, which boasts of classic pasta fare and fine wines. Montgomery Inn Ribs King is a fixture in the area for good ole' fashioned barbecue ribs and potato chips.

A major regional hospital, Jewish Hospital, is also located in Kenwood. This is region's only adult blood and marrow transplant Center, a premier joint replacement center, an experienced mobile mammography program, a cholesterol and metabolism center, a weight management center, and full-spectrum of cardiovascular and emergency services.

The nearest high schools are Madeira High School at the south end and Archbishop Moeller High School at the north end. Kenwood is situated near the Ohio River, which provides lots of recreational activities for residents.

Head over to the Kenwood Theater to catch a movie of your choice or to the Kenwood Country Club to play a game of golf. Even though most everyone who lives in this neighborhood drives a car, you can easily use public transportation bus service here too. You can access Metro service along Montgomery Road, and there's a Park-and-Ride commuter lot behind Kenwood Baptist Church. People who commute to work typically only have a 15-20 minute drive each way.

Overall, Kenwood is peaceful, quiet, and enjoys a lower crime rate than other places in the area. It's also known to be a great place to raise a family or retire. Due to its easily accessible location, this place is a happy medium between downtown city and quiet suburban living. The parks in this area play a huge part in daily Kenwood life, as there are six large parks with sporting activities, garden clubs, and social projects here.
