"Cozy homes close to everything in Oakley and Hyde Park"

Brotherton Rd. begins at the easternmost edge of Oakley and runs west where it ends at Madison Rd. It's mostly a residential street lined with cozy, single family homes and a few small apartment buildings. There are a few businesses and large multifamily complexes as well, but they are tucked away behind trees and homes, just barely visible as you drive by. A Metro bus route travels most of Brotherton Rd., making transportation access easy for those who choose not to drive.

The home styles along Brotherton Rd. are similar to nearby residences on Marburg Ave. and Wasson Rd. in the desirable Hyde Park neighborhood. They are close to everything Hyde Park has to offer, but there's a bit less money in Oakley than in Hyde Park, and it's obvious in a subtle way that's hard to describe.

Oakley isn't Hyde Park, but it's right next door. If you follow Brotherton Rd all the way from east to west, you will notice the signs of up-and-coming Hyde Park style amenities. Brotherton ends at Madison Rd., right in the heart of Oakley's growing business district. There are shops and restaurants, art galleries and entertainment. These things aren't walkable from all Brotherton Rd. addresses, but they are close to some.

Brotherton Rd. residents can find everything they need in the Oakley shopping district. There are plenty of shopping options, including Manatee Bookstore and King Arthur's Court's Toys for kids. For groceries and everything else there's a Fresh Market. Target and Sam's Club are also nearby. Courtesy Chevrolet dealership is located at the corner of Brotherton and Madison. Hyde Park Plaza and Rookwood Commons have more shopping options minutes away.

Dining and Entertainment
For dining you'll find everything from pizza to Chinese along Madison Rd in Oakley, with many more choices in nearby Hyde Park. There are bars and neighborhood cafes. Former movie houses, 20th Century and Ambassador now host live entertainment and special events.

Gym and fitness
Yogahome is a yoga studio located on Brotherton Rd.: http://yogahome.net/ .

Brotherton Rd. is minutes away from Ault and Alms Parks. The Observatory in Mt. Lookout has many programs for youth and adults. Geier Esplande, a small park located in the middle of Madison Rd., is walkabale from the west section of Brotherton and Madison Bowl five minutes away.

St. Cecelia: K-8 Catholic School is located in Oakley. There are several Cincinnati Public schools nearby in Hyde Park: Hyde Park School (Pre-1 and 3-6 for gifted children), Kilgour (k-6), Withrow University (9-12), and Clark Montessori High School (7-12).

There are a number of churches nearby. There are no medical facilities in Oakley, but Jewish Hospital Kenwood is a 15 minute drive away.
