pressler house (aka rissover house) - photo © Jim Brown, Atomic Ranch


We bought this house in October of 1997.  Our only requirements were a 4 bedroom MCM house in Cincinnati Public Schools.  What we found was a large, plain MCM sitting quietly in the woods and waiting to realize its potential.  Many years and many projects later, we have succeeded in kicking it up a few notches and making the most livable family home we could imagine.  We've also gotten a little bit of publicity along the way....Cincinnati Magazine featured our house in the Feb. 2006 issue and below is a feature that ran in Housetrends Magazine in Feb. 2009.  We are also proud to announce that we are 'chapter 2' in the upcoming book, Atomic Ranch Midcentury Interiors, by Michelle Gringeri-Brown and Jim Brown set to be released on March 1, 2012.  You can pre-order a copy by clicking here.
