Minutes from downtown and renovated from top-to-bottom, this 1900 home features plenty of updates and great outdoor space. With a navy exterior and cedar accents, its on-trend curb appeal is amplified by the open, spacious front porch. It’s a welcoming ambience—potted plants, comfy furniture, and outdoor ceiling fan (great for keeping bugs at bay) all come together to create a space where you want to rest a while. The current owners love spending time on the porch with their children, relaxing and chatting with the neighbors. During the home’s renovation, it was important for the owners to keep some of its Victorian qualities, and they made sure the wraparound porch was preserved.
Inside, 3,700 square feet of living space encompasses four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. The open kitchen allows for casual seating at the island and flows into the formal dining area for additional entertaining space. “We spent the most time in the three years of rehab making sure that this area stood out the most to our guests and met the needs of our family. It is our belief that the kitchen is the heart of a home,” the owners say. Other family-friendly features include a second-floor laundry room and spacious third-floor hangout area. Outside, the possibilities are endless with a large carriage house that comes equipped with its own HVAC and water heater.

Completely renovated by ARHI Building and Remodeling, the house has been redesigned for modern, luxurious living. Any update you can think of was probably done—from removing knob and tube wiring to creating two additional bathrooms (it originally only had one). The home was jacked up to remove a wall, floor joists were taken out, and a recessed beam was installed to allow the addition of French doors that open onto the back deck. New specialty lighting creates a relaxed environment in the evenings. The kitchen was a favorite feature for ARHI owner Keith Payne—he designed it with inspiration Café du Monde in New Orleans. “As one walks through and experiences the kitchen, the detail of the glossy subway tile with varying pencil accents help to convey a French culinary feel and setting,” he says. The home clocks in at 2,400 square feet, with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms and a finished basement that includes dedicated office space. A spacious backyard and two-car garage round out the exterior offerings.

Inside, the floorplan was reimagined for open-concept, modern living. Ceilings rising 12-and-a-half feet make the rooms feel airy and expansive on the main level. Exposed brick above the fireplace retains a hint of cozy Old World feel. “The gas fireplace in the living room is perfect for romantic evenings on those cold Indiana nights,” the owners say. The entryway with an original staircase conveys the same feeling. With 3,600 square feet of living space, the home offers three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master suite boasts a marble bathroom—complete with luxurious soaking tub—and a designer walk-in closet. Throughout the house, all the rooms blend contemporary and period design. Ideal for entertaining, the sleek gray kitchen boasts high-end appliances, quartz countertops, and ample storage.
