Midwest Mansion, Historic "Hill Place" is on the Market , Indianapolis

It's sort of a 'stop the presses' moment if you follow historic preservation in the Midwest.  National Landmark Registered "Hill Place' is on the market and at only 750K I predict not for long. This 1850 era Italianate is one of the finest restorations in the Midwest and rare example. So next weeks Friday Fix will be a large list , I promise, but I know you would all want to know about this.

What the realtor says: "Hill Place is an outstanding early example (circa 1850) of Italianate architecture whose historic importance has been recognized by The Dept. of Interior by being listed on the National Register. Multiple brick arches support the massive structure that rises 3 floors above. Awarded Indiana Landmarks restoration award, the interiors are at once historically correct & aesthetically stimulating including the most incredible two-story library, imposing staircase and choice finishes."

Its are to see a renaissance Victorian interiors like this one and its a credit to the Kellers who meticulously restored this home over the last couple of decades. This house is labor of love and it shows

Aside from its grandeur it has the "grand library" which was artfully crafted by opening up the floor from the basement to second floor and creating a remarkable space.

This is the kind of kitchen I like to see modern and functional but not looking like a spaceship landed in an old house.

Basements in old house are often relegated to mechanicals but not here. Brick and stone are part of the interior design in the gentleman's billiard room.

Every room in this house exudes period elegance. Putting bathrooms in an 1850 era house is often a difficult proposition, this is done seamlessly here and while up to date it looks good in this house.

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 7116 square feet. It does not get any better than this!
