Million-dollar houses are back for Homearama’s 2013 show, thanks to an improving economy.
For the first time in the 51-year history of the new home show, all six houses on display have been sold. Buyers paid between $850,000 and $1.3 million for the homes in the Carriage Hill community in Liberty Township.

Thursday, show sponsor Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati invited the media for a preview of the 400-acre community that’s surrounded by lakes, woods and walking paths. Sponsors also announced that the 2014 Homearama will be built at Carriage Hill as well.
The 2013 show, which opens Saturday and runs through July 28, includes styles from a one-level ranch to two-story French Tudor.
“This year’s show features a dramatic sunken home theater, an indoor basketball court, a spectacular home library, stunning architecture including a 16-foot turret and cupola, trendy outdoor living spaces and themed bedrooms,” said Dan Dressman, executive director of the Home Builders Association. “This year’s Homearama will definitely be one to remember and one not to miss.”
