exterior front after major hardscaping project in 2016 and NEW CONCRETE DRIVEWAY!! 

We bought this house in October of 1997.  Our only requirements were a 4 bedroom MCM house in Cincinnati Public Schools.  It took us 3 years of looking, and what we found was a large, plain MCM sitting quietly in the woods and waiting to realize its potential.  Many years and many, many projects later, we have succeeded in kicking it up a few notches and making the most livable family home we could have imagined.  It has truly been a labor of love.  We've also gotten a little bit of publicity along the way....Cincinnati Magazine featured our house in the Feb. 2006 issue and below is a feature that ran in Housetrends Magazine in Feb. 2009.  The house AND our family was featured in BEST Magazine in 2011. We were also featured in the book, Atomic Ranch Midcentury Interiors, by Michelle Gringeri-Brown and Jim Brown published in 2012.  

But we did not stop after the magazine and book photos were published.  We have continued the project and embarked on a major exterior hardscaping undertaking - The Pressler House Project - in 2016, the house's 60th anniversary. With the mastermind design skills of architect Chris Magee, we brought the exterior spaces of this house up to the level of the interior.  And created a lot of exterior living and entertaining spaces in the process. What are we most proud of?  That we preserved and enhanced this MCM for generations to come.
