My charming home was selected for the 2012 Historic home tour! It was also featured in a two- page spread in the Indy Star! You’ll love my place as it is an original bungalow/cottage that Broad Ripple is known for. It was completed before the start of World War II and still retains many of its beautiful and original features. When you approach my home, you will see the darling cottage-style home enclosed by mature landscape and cozy front porch surrounded by a white picket fence.
When you enter, you will be greeted by the original Indiana limestone fireplace, original hardwoods, repurposed original kitchen cabinets, sweet dining room, full bathroom with it’s original tile and two great size bedrooms. I have tried to maintain the integrity of the original home; only adding my artistic touch!
I like to call my downstairs a private bed and breakfast! This is a rare treasure in Broad Ripple! The entrance to the space is right off of the kitchen. As you walk down the stairs, you will be comforted with a spacious family room complete with a fireplace and a custom built bar made by yours truly. The large bedroom has brand new carpet, a beautiful hand made wood wall and smart TV. The half bath and laundry room are connected for your convenience. You will have all the amenities you need from a mini refrigerator, bar sink, microwave and coffee maker.
My favorite part of my home is what I call, “The Sanctuary.” You will find the ultimate outdoor courtyard experience right in my private backyard. It is all about relaxation and beauty, groomed with gorgeous and colorful landscape! It has a hand-crafted peaceful water fountain embedded in a stonewall structure, a luxurious fire pit accompanied by 6 comfortable chairs. This space also includes an al fresco outdoor dining space beneath an intricately-built and mindfully-lit pergola. Adjacent, four hanging basket swings are suspended for your ultimate relaxation experience.
My home is located in one of the most hip and happening cultural districts of Indianapolis, the Broad Ripple Village. It is an eclectic neighborhood with award winning independent restaurants, boutique-style shopping, family friendly parks, fun nightlife and steps from the Monon Trail, an 18 mile trail popular for walking and bicycling.
My home is wonderful for anyone; family with kids, business travelers and groups!
