Realty Check: What $4M Gets You in Lizton

An indoor basketball court, two pools, and 15 bathrooms
With 29 rooms, including seven bedrooms and 15 bathrooms, this 17,327-square-foot estate in a lush, empty Lizton field could hold a sizeable portion of the Hendricks County town’s population of 488 people. Jeff Laskowski originally built the home in 1979 as a modest, 2,300-square-foot Cape Cod on a small, wooded lot. After earning a key role within his father’s company, Wood-Mizer Products, the now-retired CEO began expanding the compound, with eight major construction waves over the course of 35 years.
Although the decor needs updating, rich Indiana hardwoods (felled from the property) embellish every quarter of the castle-like structure—even the full-court gymnasium—and give the house an elevated sense of grandeur. Not to be outdone by the two-story kitchen with a suspended catwalk, the extravagant 2,000-square-foot master wing includes a stunning library fringed with ornate bookshelves as well as a conference room, gym, spa, and mini bar.
Guests can lounge by the outdoor pool in the heat of summer—or relax in the midst of winter in the expansive indoor pool, complete with lofty ceilings and striped awnings. With a 13-car garage, two theater rooms, and a spacious guest home, good luck getting family visiting for the holidays out before spring arrives.
