Midwest Mansions: The Vonnegut House
Today on Midwest Mansions we feature The Vonnegut House. This 6496 Sq foot French Revival Mansion is in Historic Meridian Park. A National Historic District to the North of the Indianapolis Downtown. The Mansion sits on a bout 6/10th of an acre and features a four Car carriage house.
What the realtor Says: Built CA 1921, the Vonnegut House is an outstanding example of French Revival Architecture uniquely located on a double Meridian Park lot that is equidistant to Downtown and Broad Ripple (less than a block from St Richards)! Spread over 4K sq ft, this residence retains most of its period charm and top quality historical details including carved limestone fireplaces, built-ins, natural woodwork, French doors and a stunning entry that welcomes you to the cozy living spaces. The original natural wood kitchen has been cleverly updated with stylish stainless appliances, granite counters and a custom tile back splash. The level of finish rivals that of most Meridian St mansions on quiet Pennsylvania Street. The home's relationship to the large lot is very ahead of its time with several sets of French doors leading to the gardens.
We like the classic lines of the home and the French feel. Mansions like this are getting increasingly harder to find at this price 450,000.00
