Tuckerman School Districts Make The Grade

Looking for a great home in one of Central Ohio's best school districts?

"Public schools and districts in Ohio this year received letter grades -- A through F -- based on students' success last year.  The revamped report-card system is, in some ways, more complex than in previous years.  The state won't issue overall grades until 2015.  Until then (this) is what the state uses to determine a school's grade: Achievement, Graduation, Value-Added Features, Gap Closing." --The Dispatch, Friday August 23, 2013.  Please enjoy the glowing report details on the Olentangy, Bexley, Gahanna-Jefferson, and New Albany-Plain school districts within this post.

The Yorkshire

Exclusively at the New Albany Country Club

I beleive this is our finest floorplan within the category of homes featuring a first floor master suite.  What makes it unique is the combination of a completely Georgian country home exterior with a floorplan built for entertainment and family living.  Its layout and flow does not quite approach those of strict utility; quite the contrary, its conveniences are added bonuses, tastefully complementing an already stately home.  Consider, for example, the powder room off of the drop zone adjacent to the garage.  The outdoor courtyard that empties off of the breakfast and great room.  The private staircase, in lieu of a grand stair hall.  The coat, linen, and walk-in-closets.  This is a home for the good life in 2013.  Continued...

Mindful Maintenance #3: Fall Checklist

We should say 'mind-fall' maintenance.

This autumn, and it feels like autumn today, you can easily avoid home maintenance headaches that inevitably would have erupted in emergencies right before Saturday kickoff.  This episode of The Tuckerman Home Group's Mindful Maintenance series covers gutters, furnaces, weather-stripping, sprinklers, chimneys, and basic safety.

There's a reason Les Wexner chose to build the second largest mansion in Ohio on Kitzmiller Road. 

Browse nearby property listings on Trulia and find a high-ranked location across many categories as well as glowing descriptions of homes for sale like "...nestled in park-like acres," "Enjoy scenic views of a sparkling creek," as well as "Star gaze from 3 acres with mature trees and gorgeous setting."  However, we enjoy this down-to-earth description from a joyride/motorcycle blog that also hints at why this area just outside Columbus also offers peace of mind and a sense of security.  Its all about living in the country with the convenience of city-living:

Kitzmiller starts at a bar with good drink specials and ends at a pizza joint with good pies. The road is in great condition with some 90 degree turns and lots of trees. Be careful of the speeds cause the law is watching. This road goes through a horse farm, golf course and the homestead of the CEO of Victoria Secrets.

Central OH Housing Red Hot

Better than any other Ohio city or region

So prices are up but more importantly sale volume is way up and days on the market are way down.Condominium sales, as mentioned in the article below are also way up in May.  Anecdotally, I overheard a property investor and a property manager lament the fact that there are no good rentals to be had, or none to be had without a bidding war from the Short North, to Dublin, to Westerville.

Looking for a brand-new home at the prestigious New Albany Country Club?

Well we have you covered.  3540 Eyre Hall Pass is a 4 bedroom 3 1/2 bath 5-level home.  Its floorplan is ideal for entertaining friends and family yet herein we highlight several features that put a focus on raising kids and making the most of downtime.

4: The number of Parades of which we participated in the last 8 years...

Edit: June 25, 2013 I guess we make it an every other year affair.  That allows us to join our clients and neighbors as guests and simply enjoy the showcasing of the latest beuilding trends and fads.   We have proudly participated in parades in 2006, 2008, 2010, and built the Parade Foundation House for charity in 2011.  Those links are to albums on our website, but if you prefer, you can view the albums on Houzz.com/Tuckerman.  Now, down to the numbers, our breakdown of this year's Parade of Homes.

Rising Prices in the USA Today

Big City Average: Home Prices Up 9.3%

While this USA Today story covers developments nationwide, several aspects pertain here in Central Ohio.  The highlights: Case-Schiller study shows prices up 9.3% from February 2012; Tight supply of homes is driving force in higher prices; Prices remain 29% below the peak in 2006.  We can add that for a builder of fine new homes, increased prices for lumber, finishes, and labor have begun to trickle down to the consumer.  While not a significant component of higher prices, Ohio residential codes were updated at the beginning of the year and mandate better quality homes.

Walking Around the Village

Love Where You Live!

One of the most underrated evening activities is walking to your favorite restaurant. Okay, maybe not your favorite restaurant in the entire world, but being able to lace up and walk to something -- be it a restaurant, park, or community event is overlooked as an important part of "the good life."  Check out the Village!  The Village at Hannah Farms that is.  It is not only strategically located at the corner of Gahanna and New Albany, but it also is connected via a pedestrian path to real destinations unlike some of its isolated competitor developments. The picture gallery within highlights some amazing features of this well-planned 'neighborhood' like the truly scenic walk to Hannah Park and nearby restaurants.

The History of New Albany

Our supplement to a Business First article featuring Craig...

Read CBF full article within.  From 1856-1980 the population of New Albany fluxuated modestly between 50 and 414 people.  In those times the great industry of the area was the New Albany Lumber Mill - originally Wilkins Mill - or fishing in the headwaters of the Rocky Fork Creek (To satisfy a nostalgic longing we are eagerly hunting photographs of this timeperiod).  How did the community go from a sleepy Hamlet to a population of almost 8,000 with some of the best schools in Ohio in three decades?  Columbus Business First interviewed Craig Tuckerman while discovering just that. 

One homebuilder continues to mine residential gold in New Albany. Craig Tuckerman, president of Tuckerman Home Group, said he continues to build new homes in New Albany for several reasons. First, new construction and buying continue to garner attention, encouraging him to purchase viable lots. Tuckerman has built more than 30 homes in New Albany, and recently purchased 11 empty lots “because we have faith the buyers are there,” he said. His company is “busy as we have ever been in New Albany,” and he expects that trend to continue. He has heard “a lot of optimism,” including from potential buyers, so said he will continue to build there.
