House Hunting? Here’s What $1,000,000 Buys You, From Downtown To The Suburbs
Searching for the perfect home isn’t always as easy as it should be.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed, especially in Columbus. The real estate market boom is still going strong, and with so many options, it’s hard to even know where to begin. Especially when you’re planning on spending 7-figures on a home.
If you’re wondering how far your $1,000,000 dollar budget will go around the city, I’ve got good news: there are so many interesting options waiting for you. Your dream home could be waiting for you below.
Neighborhood/Community: New Albany Country Club Specs: 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 6,256 square feet Price: $925,000 What we love: If country club life is for you, then this New Albany home may be just the right fit. The home is massive but the thing we love the most is the finished lower level. There’s a rec room, billiards room, wet bar, and even a space for guests.
Neighborhood/Community: German Village Specs: 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2,540 square feet Price: $899,900 What we love: This German Village gem isn’t just beautiful, it comes in underbudget. From the modern kitchen to the spacious bedroom, this home is truly spectacular. Plus it has two things that aren’t always common in German Village, plenty of off-street parking and a backyard for the pups.
Neighborhood/Community: Northwest Columbus Specs: 8 bedrooms, 4.5+ bathrooms, 3,552 square feet Price: $1,250,000 What we love: Yes, technically this home is over budget, but I couldn’t resist showing it to you anyway. Consider this the part of the house hunting show where the realtor shows the couple the house they can’t afford seemingly just to break their hearts a little. I’m sorry, but it’s too gorgeous not to. The home has beautiful views of the Scioto River and fantastic midcentury modern elements.
Neighborhood/Community: Marble Cliff Specs: 5 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2,878 square feet Price: $918,000 What we love: This classic home in Marble Cliff has a lot to love, but mostly we’re obsessed with the fantastic patio spaces. I could very easily imagine having friends over for a nice, summer evening full of good food and wine, and in my dream world, no masks!
Neighborhood/Community: Old Beechwold Specs: 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 2,738 square feet Price: $875,000 What we love: River views must be on-trend right now, and this home overlooking the Olentangy River is stunning. The home was built back in 1925 and it has a certain charm that you just can’t find in newer builds. There are multiple terraces throughout the home where you can take in the waterfront views and reconnect with nature.
Neighborhood/Community: Founders Ridge Specs: 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, 6,012 square feet Price: $950,000 What we love: This home has some incredible outdoor spaces. If you’re looking for treehouse vibes, just spend a few hours on this multi-level deck overlooking a peaceful little ravine. You’re out in nature, but close to all of your favorite amenities, like Easton and John Glenn International Airport.
Neighborhood/Community: Downtown Columbus Specs: 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2,932 square feet Price: $949,900 What we love: Want to own a little slice of history? This beautiful home is located in the historic LeVeque Tower. The views are sweeping from every window and the building has amenities like a restaurant, coffee shop, fitness center, concierge services, and more. This property also comes with a tax abatement until 2033.
