Mary and Scott Smith bought a condo inside a newly renovated building on 7th and Greenup streets intending to use it as an investment property.
But they fell in love with it and decided to downsize, selling their larger house and making the condo their new home.
The space was featured in season three of Beyond the Curb: River City Living, which began in 2020 as a pandemic alternative to the Catalytic Fund’s in-person urban living tours.
The episode highlights the renovation of the Covington property in the historic Licking Riverside neighborhood. Orleans Development first changed the property into four condos from two townhomes: Two of the condos have a first and second floor; the second two condos are on the third floor.
The condo showcases original features such as the entryway, stained glass windows, and fireplaces with carved mantels.
Jill Morenz, who hosts the show, said one cool thing about the new season is that they are highlighting the neighborhoods surrounding the homes they feature.
“We wanted to highlight some of the cool restaurants, coffee shops and parks along the river cities, so we added brief visits to favorite hangouts suggested by the property owners,” Morenz said.
