The Top 19 Columbus Area Homes Sales of 2019
There were 19,081 single family homes and condos sold in Franklin County throughout last year - an almost identical number to the prior year. There were 98 sales of $1,000,000 or more in 2019 and these top 19 Franklin County Home Sales were the most expensive -ringing in at a total of over $35,000,000 - yet they represent less than 1% of the total FOUR AND A HALF BILLION DOLLARS worth of real estate that changed ownership in 2019.
Only 4 of the top 19 highest home sales in the county were in Columbus proper while 15 were in first and second ring suburbs. Of those 4 Columbus homes, 2 were in German Village, and two were downtown. There were 566 Franklin County residences that sold (or re-sold) for $1MM or more over the last decade - last year's million-dollar-plus sales represent a lopsided 17% of that number. And now, without further ado, the top 19 Franklin County Home Sales in 2019....(take a look at #17!)....
#19. $1,425,000 Jaeger Street, Columbus
Neither of this year's German Village entries were on Schiller Park - unusual not to have one in this yearly roundup. This beautiful brick home, originally built in 1889, comes in at 3794 square feet, with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths and a 4 car garage.
#18 - $1,460,000 Brandon Road New Albany
The last New Albany home on the list boasts 6,845 square feet, six bedrooms, five full and 2 half baths, and a 4 car garage all on nearly an acre lot.
#17. $1,465,000 Condo at Park's Edge
An unbelievable 3,275 square feet of living space plus over 120 square feet of balcony space with Downtown Columbus views for days. I listed this condo and had it in contract in a week with a full price backup offer as well.
I charged this seller $6,000 to list and sell the condo because at Delicious Real Estate we know how to sell homes with the best but don't believe in robbing our client's home equity.

Six bedrooms, six baths in this unassuming from the front, 8,318 square foot, south of Lane home.

#4 - $2,075,000 4th Street Downtown
Far and away my favorite sale of the year. I love this building/residence - all 17,000+ square feet of it. You can have your McMansion and I'll take the three floors of residence and first-floor-whatever-you-want.
#3 - $2,100,000 Crooked Mile Gahanna
This is less about the 2,729 square foot house than it is the almost 13 prime wooded Gahanna acres.
#2 - $2,175,000 Tremont Upper Arlington
Five bedrooms and 3.5 baths spread out over 5,700 square feet on one prime acre of UA land.
#1 $3,700,000 Lambton Park New Albany
This 7,300+ square foot home on 7+ acres in New Albany runs away with the most expensive home sold in Franklin County in 2019 at $3.7MM. With 4 bedrooms and 4.2 baths this home is adjacent to the golf course and has a 4 car garage. Did I mention that it looks lovely and is on SEVEN acres? This home was built in 2005 and yes, of course it has a pool. The taxes will set you back about $63,000/year. As far as I can tell, this would be the 3rd highest sale ever in Franklin County as found on the Columbus MLS.
*Please note that not every sale in Franklin and surrounding counties is listed or recorded on the Columbus Realtors MLS - which is the tool I use to compile this list. There may have been other, private sales that have been publicly recorded but not accessed for this post. Also note that pictures, wherever possible, were taken from the County Auditor's site and slightly edited as listing pictures and interior shots belong to the home seller and are not for public consumption.
