Former Homearama Home Becomes Available!  First Time Since 1973….

By Dean Frank & Tim Zimmerman 

The last time this home was available was during it’s debut 44 years ago at Homerama. One of the coolest ranch homes in the Windsor Village Community, this house takes you back to a simpler time. It’s 1973. A loaf of bread costs 27 cents, gas is 65 cents a gallon and Archie Bunker continues to shock America every week during prime time.

The top selling toys are Baby AliveBaby Alive and Lawn Jarts because nothing’s more fun than changing a simulated “poopy” diaper or being stabbed by a flying dart in the safety of your own yard.

Want to make a fashion statement? Nothing commands more attention than a shiny shirt unbuttoned to your navel exposing your chest hair. Not you ladies. There’s something even better for you. How about knee high toe socks to wear with your platform clogs?

While many of the design elements of the 70’s seem dated the good ones still hold their own.This house has all of those elements.

As a realtor I see hundreds of ranch homes a year. While many have great floor plans for livability and ease of access, they can be very redundant.  This home’s generous floorplan is a refreshing alternative to the standard ranch houses of Cincinnati and Fairfield.  See the YouTube video here.

 

Aside from the obvious curb appeal, this modern home has a complete brick wrap. While a home with a full brick wrap is considered an upgrade in today’s market in 1973 it was expected. There’s plenty of outside living space as well.

This house is situated on an incredible homesite with views of an adjoining farmhouse. It’s not unusual to see the odd cow passing by. Want a little quiet time? Enjoy your Sanka in the privacy of your shady front porch while you wait for your Avon delivery. Feeling a little peaked? Why don’t you go lay out in your private courtyard and slather yourself with baby oil and iodine? It’s ok. It’s 1973 and we don’t know any better yet.  

In a time where less space seems more appealing this 1800 square foot home is the perfect size and has all of the convenience that a single floor plan can provide. The new owner will enjoy, a formal living  and dining room, and an open kitchen. The breakfast area is adjacent to a bright and cheerful family room so you can watch  Paul Dixon as your 2.5 children enjoy the nutritious benefits of Tang  The three bedrooms are all very large by today’s standards, with a private bath for the master bedroom.  Click here for the 3D tour.

Need a little more space? Put your foosball table in the basement. All of the heavy work has been done. Just come in add your design elements, and  expand your living space even more.
