New Development Captures Neighborhood Charm With Modern "Green Homes"

Brad Olinger and his team of architects, designers and contractors at Sterling Homes are known for blending style and function while focusing on cost and environmental efficiency. One of Olinger’s keys to success has been the philosophy that there’s an appropriate way to build modern, custom-built homes while maintaining a neighborhood’s character and history. It is with that philosophy in mind that Sterling Homes has begun construction on its latest luxury home development, Parkland View. These seven individually designed, high-end, attached, single-family homes will be a beautiful addition to Linwood Avenue in Mount Lookout, one of Cincinnati’s most beloved, charming and thriving tree-lined neighborhoods.

The architectural design and finish of these homes will allow for a seamless fit with the spirit and style of nearby Mount Lookout Square, while catering to the needs of today’s homebuyer. "Parkland View promises convenient, walkable, upscale neighborhood living, nestled between Ault Park and Alms Park," says Olinger, founder and hands-on builder at Sterling Homes. He describes Parkland View as an extension of Mount Lookout Square’s lively business district, and just a few minutes from Hyde Park Square.

Parkland View offers a unique opportunity to homebuyers interested in a custom-built, low-maintenance home with luxury amenities, including open floor plans, private rear patio and rooftop terrace, optional elevator and coveted garage parking. It is rare to find all of these features in a community-minded neighborhood close to schools, restaurants, boutiques and other local businesses. Olinger’s history of delivering gorgeous design, modern function and perfect fit for the neighborhood while adhering to sustainable building practices continues at Parkland View.

Sustainability: Benefits and Cost Savings

Olinger believes strongly in building sustainable, high-performance, cost-saving homes, and he has been a key player in the "green" housing market since 2011. "Building high performance homes really helps create healthier lifestyles, reduces waste and provides cost savings for our homeowners," Olinger says. The homes at Parkland View will qualify for the prestigious Gold-level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, representing one of the highest levels of building standards in energy efficiency. This certification qualifies the homeowners for the City of Cincinnati’s CRA property tax abatement.

Some of the key areas measured by LEED are water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation in design. By utilizing high-quality materials and sustainable building practices such as low VOC paints, radon-resistant construction, and placing a high priority on indoor air quality, Olinger says, Sterling Homes is able to position homeowners for long-term financial savings and a better shot at a healthy future.

Sterling Homes is located at 347 Stanley Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45226. For more information on the Parkland View development, call 513.659.5361 or email For more information regarding Sterling Homes in general, visit
