Neat, smaller homes in quiet neighborhoods border a tremendous forest that offers more than a recreational facility. The 2,000 acres of dense, lush woodland provide a natural environment for those who enjoy the beauty and wonders of nature. Although the majority of houses in Mt. Airy were constructed soon after World War II, they are in mint condition. Most are attractive, moderately priced, single-family designs. However, there are a number of magnificent newer homes that add an atmosphere of prestigious comfort. Considering that it's located at the highest point of land in Hamilton County, just minutes from downtown and the University of Cincinnati, with no industry and a small town atmosphere, it's easy to see why Mt. Airy is a clean, invigorating place to live.
