Realty Check: Pillars of Wisdom

What a Craftsman house costs around town.

January 20171 Comment

Drive through any established Indy neighborhood and you will find beautiful examples of American Craftsman–style homes, with their abundant use of brick and wood paired with simple, sturdy design elements, like tapered columns on the front porch. And a century later, the clean lines, balanced proportions, and quality craftsmanship—hallmarks of the Arts and Crafts movement—continue to find their way into today’s new, high-end architecture. Like the look? Take your pick.
