Realty Check: Want Your Own Park In McCordsville?
A Hancock County estate that encompasses 13 acres, a beach-entrance pond for both swimming and fishing, and polished landscaping stonework surrounding a near-7,000-square-foot house is seeking outdoor-loving homeowners.
As you enter the property, past the gate and down a long, interlocking-stone driveway, a 10-foot-tall water fountain (reminiscent of Mexico’s Chichén Itzá step pyramid) encircled with bright green bushes greets you at the roundabout. Across the lawn, an arched rail bridge leads to an idyllic gazebo and walking path resting over a pond stocked with bluegill, catfish, bass, and carp. The shaded retreat has a built-in 36-inch gourmet gas grill and seating area.
Rusty-hued crushed gravel, rustic-cut stones, drifts of wispy grasses, and curved paths help mediate the starkness of the smooth and polished concrete paths. The vast and level land yearns for weekends filled with rounds of badminton, soccer, and croquet. For the homesteaders and home bakers: The property’s edge is dotted with fruit trees bearing nectarines and berries.
If ever you were to tire of basking in the outdoor beauty, the home shows that it was built to the scale of the land, with six bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a three-car garage, and a spacious outbuilding. The interior finishes include oodles of wood trim, built-ins, and arched doorways.
Though the north-Hancock location is too far east for many, keep in mind it’s within 10 minutes of both Geist Reservoir and the Indianapolis Regional Airport. After all, the outbuilding is big enough to store a bay boat. And wouldn’t it be amazing to view your expansive property from a single-engine Cessna plane?
