Legendary hairstylist Vidal Sassoon’s midcentury Cincinnati home has hit the market for $1.25m.
Sassoon bought the Mount Adams house, which was designed by architect Carl Strauss in 1966, with his wife Ronnie in 2006 and the pair used it as their Ohio base until his death in 2012.
‘I didn’t want to change the basic bones because they are amazing,’ Ronnie Sassoon told cincinnati.com about the midcentury property, which is now on the market via Lee Robinson of Robinson Sotheby’s International Realty.
The couple modernised the 1980s kitchen, but left the floor-plan and fixtures of the 3,800 sq ft home ntact. A vast, double-height living room – which looks onto the Ohio River through floor-to-ceiling glass windows – is the centerpiece of the four-storey property.
Vidal Sassoon was an avid collector of 1970s Italian furniture and art, and the four-bedroom home is furnished in his collection. Elsewhere, interiors feature an all-white colour palette that jibes with exposed brickwork, glazing and wooden floors throughout.
