The Country Life: A stone Victorian, 228 N Eliason Rd, Centerville IN

It's been a while since we have had a "The Country Life" feature and we are looking but great homes with land are getting harder to find, but we think we found a good one today.

This is  foreclosure priced at only99K and strikes us as a bargain since it was on the market pre foreclosure at 189K . This home is on 1.89 acres and is near Centerville. Centerville Indiana is a great town on I-40 and is about 1/2 way between Indianapolis IN and Columbus OH. Its a great town with lots of antique shops and is just a few minutes to Richmond IN.

This is a late Victorian in a modified Queen Anne style and we love the turreted front porch. You will note this is a stone house and that's unusual but not uncommon in the country where the fire departments were some distance away.

The interior is beginning to lean towards the craftsman and Edwardian styles as one can tell by the staircase.

There is a very nice mantle with tile surround in the entry and we can't help but thing there are probably some nice hardwood floors under that carpet, and look at those pocket doors!

The kitchen appears to be recent and is serviceable as it.

It would not be Indiana with out a basketball hoop in front of the garage.

This huge barn looks sound and could possible be converted into a great home or maybe a place for an antique car collection or even an off the beaten path antique shop.

Good schools in the county too, this would be a great place to call home in retirement or a great place to raise a family. More info: 228 N Eliason Rd
