Just listed. Original family ownership on a wooded site in rush Creek Village. I've toured this house several times and absolutely love it. Even the guest house, also designed by TVF is delightful. Priced very low so it won't last long:

Great house. I suppose the modest size has a lot to do with the price, yet I agree with you, Mod, it won't last long in the market. The guest cottage is charming. Unfortunately, there are too many fake trees in the way to get a good Google aerial view, which would help in understanding the layout.

Roderick, although trees block aerial shots, the Pepinsky family has kindly posted plans, design details with descriptions etc for both the house and guest house (called a garconniere-new term for me), here:

The main house was built for a couple and their one child in 1958 at a time when houses were much smaller.

"Garconniere" (with some diacritics) is French for "Bachelor Pad."

Thanks for the plans.

Thanks MM for the link to images of van Fossen's drawings; such documents always an instructive delight.

A literate person wrote the general description of the project and of Rush Creek Village:

"Description: Architectural and design plans for a garconniere on the grounds of the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Pepinsky in Rush Creek Village. The term garconniere refers to a small apartment or studio for an unmarried man, but in the Pepinsky's case, the structure was used as a guest room and included a dressing room, bath and small workshop. These specifications are part of a collection related to the design and construction of Harold and Pauline Pepinsky's home in Rush Creek Village, an organically-designed community located in Worthington, Ohio. The community's homes were influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian style of architecture and designed by architect Theodore van Fossen, who also planned the community. The first Rush Creek home was built in 1956 and belonged to Martha and Richard Wakefield. Richard Wakefield later became the builder of the neighborhood."
