The Rauh House - one of the first International-Style homes build in the United States – has been completely renovated and is available for sale by Sibcy Cline Realtors. This nationally recognized home was designed by Cincinnati architect John Becker in 1938.
The Rauh House was restored through a two-year project to its original character of openness, rectilinear lines and simplicity. Its industrial feel was a trait of the International Style and is very much appreciated with today's home decor trends.
The home was built for the family of insurance executive Frederick Rauh and the restoration was headed up by the Cincinnati Preservation Association and funded by Rauh's daughter, Emily Rauh Pulitzer (who lived in the house until she was 24.) Protective covenants are in place. Emily Rauh Pulitzer, a leader in the arts, married the grandson of famed newsman Joseph Pulitzer. She is a recipient of the National Medal of Arts from President Obama. Pulitzer desires someone to enjoy her childhood home while preserving its beauty and historic significance.
The home maintains its original footprint and floor plan of over 4,400 square feet. The residence has a larger master suite and six other bedrooms and five and one-half bathrooms. The home maintains its integrity to the International Style with white rooms and white interior decor.
Throughout the renovation, every detail of Cincinnati architect John Becker has been replicated while adding twenty-first century mechanical systems and efficiencies including geothermal energy. Restored landscaping follows the original designs of A.D. Taylor (who also designed the landscaping at the Pentagon in Washington D.C.)
