Looking back over the years, it’s hard to believe how much Homearama has grown since it began in 1962. Today, it’s Cincinnati’s premier event for the latest and greatest in home design.
Homearama: The early years
The very first Homearama was held in the Millbrook development located in Finneytown. The event featured plenty of mid-century modern style homes. Back then, the style was contemporary and fresh. Now, they’re just as timeless and sought after, as they represent some of the best MCM architecture in Cincinnati.
The next few Homearama events were also held in neighborhoods in northern Cincinnati, including Forest Park, Colerain Township, Greenhills and Springfield Township.
In 1967, Homearama made its way to Blue Ash, and then to Delhi Township and Monfort Heights. From then on, housing developments from nearly every part of Cincinnati and the surrounding area – from Evendale to Loveland to Montgomery were featured.
In the most recent years, Homearama has expanded its reach even farther. The event has also showcased a huge variety of custom homes – from traditional to modern.
For example, in 2019, Homearama featured nine fully decorated and landscaped homes in Kensington, a premier home community located in Deerfield Township. Developed by Erbeck Development Company, Ltd., Kensington offers homes by established home builders including Classic Living Homes.
In 2023, and keeping with Cincinnati Homearama’s ability to always keep the event new and exciting, they are holding their first “Urban Edition” in Newport Kentucky’s Martin’s Gate. Visitors will tour fresh contemporary homes with panoramic views of the Cincinnati skyline and discover the latest design trends in luxury single-family homes and posh townhomes. From integrated private garages to stunning rooftops, spa baths and gourmet kitchens, these homes have it all.
Looking to Homearama 2024
Next year’s Homearama returns to the beautiful countryside that surrounds the Cincinnati area, with homes at The Reserves at Stone Pillars Farm, developed by Klosterman Farm Land Development. This gorgeous community in Goshen features 27 lots – each on more than an acre to create your dream home.
The community also features three miles of walking and horse trails and pastures. In fact, there’s also an equestrian center, and a stable where you can board horses. It’s perfect for horse owners, or for anyone who wants to live in a home surrounded by nature, yet still close to everything the city has to offer.
So, get ready for Homearamas 2023 and 2024. Like in previous events, the coming two Homearamas will be a must for anyone interested in architecture, interior and outdoor design, and especially for anyone looking to build a new custom home.
