New Series: The Cozy Cottage: 1014 Arsenal Ave, Indianapolis,IN

Colorful, Cute and Charming
Most often people are looking for the "Grand Mansions", but with todays busy lifestyle sometimes smaller is better.  There is less maintenance and if you don't really need all that space, why have it?

Historic Photo shows how original this home is.
People don't think of Indianapolis much when it comes to Victorian Architecture but Indianapolis has some of the finest Victorian era homes in the Midwest and todays home at 1014 N Arsenal is no exception.
