When I’m house hunting with most husband/wife couple’s, it’s usually the woman who makes the buying decisions. That’s great but on this Fathers Day, I’d like to give Dad’s some options. Whether they’re married, single, or “in a relationship”, Dad’s need to feel like their needs are taken care of too. Here are 6 homes in Central Ohio that Dad has been dying to see!
Has ~2000 square feet and 3BR/2BA This one is for the complex Dad…the one who enjoys the peace and serenity of 4 acres of land but also wants to be close to all that the downtown/city lifestyle has to offer. It has a 2 car attached garage and an outbuilding suited for 4+ Cars, which would be a cool workshop…or an covered batting cage/indoor soccer for all of Dad’s “troops”! The floorplan even allows for a Mother-in law suite…for the Dad who truly embraces his family too. What a DAD!

This house backs up to the Westerville bike path for the active Pop…and comes with nearly 2 acres of land as well. It comes equipped with not one but two ponds AND a 3 car garage! But wait, there’s more…there is also a “workshop” (ie. “man cave”) above the garage for the guy who needs his space (and what guy doesn’t sometimes). All of this for only $248,000!

There are so many cool condos downtown but when this cute…oops, I mean very masculine and rugged (there are cement floors) loft space WITH a tax abatement, I knew this was the place for the hip dad with a tight budget to enjoy the hustle and bustle of downtown and still be able to ENJOY the fine dining, sports teams, nightlife, coffee shops, etc. that downtown has to offer. The $169,900 price tag gets you not one but TWO bedrooms on the 7th floor of the Exchange Urban Lofts building. Views of the city and a close proximity to it all too. Walk or Bike to the new Scioto Mile and Columbus Commons!

For the Dad who likes water, this home right on the banks of the Scioto River in Dublin comes equipped with access to a boat dock…and a koi pond. The Master suite opens out to a private deck with a hot tub that views that Scioto River, which is a lovely place to de-stress after a long day of parenting. There is a walkout basement that includes surround sound speakers that every man will enjoy. Other nice features to save Dad some time & energy are an irrigation system and an electric dumbwaiter (who doesn’t love a dumbwaiter?!)…and it’s located in a gated, Dublin community.

This condo in Dublin’s Lakes at Ballantrae community is for the Dad who doesn’t feel like cutting grass anymore but still wants to enjoy the relaxing effects of nature. The stocked pond is seen from the kitchen, master bedroom, great room, & 3 seasons room. Surround sound system in the basements “man cave” make watching sports games or “gaming” a much more enjoyable experience. There’s also a pool table for those nights when Dad gets a little competitive…and a 1/2 mile down the road is the Scioto country club for when the real competitive urges strike!

#6 – “Big Screen Dad”
This Ranch home on a private street in the 43235 has over 3500 square feet of pure awesomeness for Dad. Have your friends over to watch the next boxing match in the professionally designed home theater. Grilling out on the huge deck out back is no chore when you’re looking over the wooded ravine that encompasses the yard. Serve dinner to your family in the 3 seasons room!
