Realty Check: Quiet, Please

Despite its popularity, Westfield can still deliver the serenity of the suburbs.

Like most of our northern communities, Westfield’s growth isn’t slowing down any time soon. Thanks to such amenities as Grand Park (the 400-acre sports complex that brings in nearly 2 million visitors per year and is home to the Colts training camp), quick access to the Monon, a “restaurant row” of independent eateries, and top-rated golf courses, it’s easy to understand the booming interest.

That doesn’t mean you have to feel crowded by neighbors. With a forested backdrop of mature trees on an acre lot, this modern Craftsman feels private and expansive. Inside, a spacious living area wows with a cathedral ceiling clad in wood planks and rustic beams. Coupled with the warmth of the stone fireplace, it’s a welcoming first impression. Off the living room, the open concept into the kitchen and dining area is ideal for parties, get-togethers, and whole-family holidays. From easily fitting more than 20 around the large kitchen island to looking out into the living room filled with loved ones, the home accommodates it all.

With six bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, and nearly 6,000 square feet of living space, there’s plenty of real estate for everyone to spread out, but thanks to top-notch outdoor features, you’ll likely end up all together. A screened-in porch offers protection from bugs in the summer, while its fireplace and TV extend its appeal through the fall. The gunite pool is surrounded by plenty of lounging territory, including a large outdoor fireplace with snug conversational seating. Lush landscaping adds to the oasis feel.

Located just a stone’s throw from the Monon, it’s easy to go on a bike ride for ice cream with the kids or take a quiet walk after dinner. With only approximately 20 other homes in this gated section of the neighborhood, you can check peace of mind off your wish list.
