      My husband and I toured this house a few years ago when it was for sale. But the relative of the owner decided to not sell and fix it. Had slot of damage in side. But beautiful even with damage. We wanted this house so much. But I have now moved to Florida. Who ever buys please keep the beauty and it’s old charm.

    • Hi Folks!

      My husband and I bought the house in 2018. We are both historians and plan to spend our time restoring the house! It needs A LOT of work and it will probably take us 20 years (unless we win the lottery, lol), but we are all about restoration, NO changes. Of all things that need to be fixed, the landscaping has been just completely ignored. I want to dress the grand old lady in finery again! I will try to keep you all updated.

        I don’t know what it is about this home, but I am captivated by it. It’s totally different from any home I’ve ever owned, but I push aside the Colonials, the Victorian painted ladies, the Craftsman and so many, many more, as I come to this page and scrutinize every picture over & over again. In fact, I have taken a few of the pictures of the home and digitally enhanced them with very satisfying results. I would love to see any work that has been done on the house. I’m so glad someone with a heart and vision for the home purchased it, preserving a true treasure, and with so few modernistic, streamlined homes in existence in the US, the significance and preservation of this home grows more essential each day.
        PLEASE show us your progress at your earliest possible convenience. Thank you gigantically and in advance for sharing.

      True that John. Most of these houses don’t really work functionally, but this one sure as ____ does – and with verve to spare! Wow. My only question is – w h a t is this doing in Muncie??? This is not your average Art / Hollywood Moderne house, and I would suspect either a designer / architect or designer and architect conceived it. It is very high style; nothing plain Jane here. It’s a miracle it hasn’t been drastically altered over the years. I have never seen exactly that sort of enameled steel cabinetry before, and it is SMOKIN HOT! Jeez. This house needs a devotee or it’s DOOMED!

      PERFECT place for my all-time favorite, (aesthetically), range, the 1936 Magic Chef 1400, “Mrs. Moderne”;

          I grew up in the shadow of this house. I’m 51, and always remember the house being painted bright white with no other colors. I’m not sure how such an Art Deco house SHOULD be painted, but bright white doesn’t suit it, because the brick detailing is hidden. An “old woman” lived there all during my youth. She rarely left the house, and rarely had maintenance done on it! My parents said that she had no money left. I’m glad it survived her neglect.

            I would paint the house in nautical hues. Aqua teal dark navy accents.
            It reminds me of an oceanliner! I just love it! I bet it once was on many acres alone. The rear steps had to of gone out to gardens I’m sure. The front entrance should be a semi-circle driveway, again with acreage and gardens. I’m glad there is a park out front at least.

            1
          • Kieran McCarty says: 8 comments

            All White is typical for many, many streamline moderne houses like this. Any accents should, as Lori Hughes suggested, be nautical — navy blue, not aqua or teal (unless you’re in Miami).

        I wonder what the Muncie neighbors thought when they first saw this bit of 1930’s Hollywood glamour constructed among their Colonial and Tudor Revival homes. I just noticed the rare unoffensive front elevation garage door, perfect for the Delahaye 135 I’d need to go along with the style.

        I did stumble across this 1927 beauty just up the street when looking around the neighborhood… http://cms.bsu.edu/academics/centersandinstitutes/virginiaballcenter/ourhouse/historicimages

        the enamel cabinetry and picture windows with thin muntins remind me of Lustron homes (that came later, different style, different time, more modest size and use).

      • I own the house now and I am a professional historian, so I have put together a lot of history on the place. The house was built by T.G. Wilkinson who handled investments for the Ball Brothers (as in canning jars). They were some of the only people to have money in the Depression. Wilkinson and his wife wanted to make a fabulous statement. I am pretty sure that the reason virtually all of the house is in its original state is because of how it was built: it’s made of poured concrete, steel beams, cinder block, with a brick facade AND plaster walls! The place is a fortress and we have already found out just how hard it is to get in to the walls. My guess is that no one wanted the huge expense to change anything!

          To gloriana1603, My name is Phillip and I have a 6 1/2 page history of the home written 3-12-1984 by Richard and Melinda Douglass who lived in the house in the 80’s. Most of the history that they wrote comes from the Wilkinson daughter by phone as she lived in CO. They, the Douglass’s remodeled the kitchen during the time they lived there but used the original cabinets and re-configured them in their remodel. I was interested in the property in 2010. I talked to Mr. Douglass and he sent me the history they wrote. I’m sure you’d be interested in it, if you don’t already have it. A student at Ball State also did a paper about the house and I think you can find the paper on-line from Ball State.

          There was an identical house…but a little larger…built in Richmond, VA, but it’s been replaced by a McMansion. (The Wilkinson’s were originally from Richmond) If you’d like me to send the history to you, my e-mail (I hope putting my e-mail here is not against the guidelines) is clasyk@yahoo.com

            Clayskl, I’m from Richmond and am moving back there soon. Do you know where the house was located? Are there any photos online that you know of?

            • clasyklclasykl says: 49 comments

              Hi Bethster, The address is 8855 River Road, Richmond, VA. As I said, it’s gone. You can see what is there via Google Earth. There are 3 photos of the Richmond house, and for gloriana1603, many photos of exterior and interior of Wilkinson House taken in 1936 plus later photos after it was sandblasted…worst thing you can do to a brick house, in my opinion. All this info is from Drawings and Documents Archive, College of Architecture and Planning, Ball State University and the document is titled: Selected Images Concerning The Career of Leslie F Ayres. Pages 17 to 23 has the info on Wilkinson House and three photos of Richmond house, AKA Jones House, (page 22) with a drawing of Jones’ Richmond House on page 23.

                Thanks for the info, Claskyl. I can see what’s there now on Google Maps. 🙁 I’m surprised it was out on River Road. That was practically in the country back then. (I was imagining it being in North Side, since so many houses of that era are there.)

                • clasyklclasykl says: 49 comments

                  When I looked up the Richmond address in circa 2010. the current house was under construction. The circular drive was a part of the Jones house, not the new house. I just went to Google Earth again and clicked on the 1994 date and I got a fuzzy aerial view but you can see the outline of the Jones house and see the circular drive. Apparently, what the Wilkinson’s wanted was a traditional colonial pillared home as you’d find in the south. I’m sure that’s why there are 2-story columns holding up the porch…that was Ayres colonial rendition. My first thought when seeing the Muncie home, was that it was a transitional design. Now that I know what they wanted, the columns make sense. I’ve never seen an art moderne (aka streamline moderne) home with 2-story columns before.

  4. I am in love! That kitchen! *swoons*

    This is amazing. It looks like something from 1930’s California and deserves to be in a cocktail table book for architecture and design. Nothing too terrible has been done to the interior so I hope nobody destroys it. The curved door leading into the built-in cocktail bar in the dining room is a cool touch. When I was a kid growing up in the 70s, mid-size cities like Muncie still had the economic power to create unique/glamorous homes like these. Not anymore. It’s all about huge cities now, which is shame, because something cool has been lost.

    The house was designed for investor Theodore Wilkinson by architect Leslie F. Ayres (1906-1952). Ayres worked as an architectural renderer (his pencil and watercolor work is wonderful), and built a good practice in Indianapolis before his early death. The interiors of the house in 1936 are amazing!

    In picture 9, is that tower thing a sculpture, or a permanent part of the house?
    Super coolest house ever! Here in Boulder County, you could add at least a million dollars to the price, and it would sell in a week.

    I found a few Flickr pictures pre renovation. The lower kitchen cabinets were black and the room with the fish scale louvered blinds was originally a porch. I’d roll both back. Lastly, the sculpture on the lighted column at the top of the stairs was added by the current owners. An easy fix.

    • VictoriaRuta says: 2 comments

      HI! When did you live there? How depressed was the town? I really love the house and would not live there myself so I need to know these things. Its only one hour and 15 min from Indianapolis so that seems like a reasonable commute for someone? Or even (gasp) students?

      • Harleysmom says: 116 comments

        It was in the early 90’s so it was awhile ago, so I’m not that familiar with what it’s like now. I commute about over an hour and half everyday (each way) into the San Francisco Bay area which can be very tiring but the traffic is pretty bad so I guess it’s really a matter of what you can put up with. Weather would be more of a consideration in IN than here. I love the Indianapolis area and am considering retiring there someday.

    Don’t forget that Ball State University has a top rated architecture program and that Borg Warner Gear, Ball Corp, and a few dozen other manufacturers had a massive presence there at one time. I’m sure a forward thinking industrialist built this home.

  31. Joseph says: 21 comments

    Reminds me of the movie “Mr & Mrs. Bridge” when they go to the party at a modernist house.

    Is Muncie depressed, or just a reasonably priced place to live? The neighborhood seems very nice, and the proximity to hospital would make it seem attractive to professional people employed there.

  39. Laurie W. says: 1747 comments

    This is one of the — if not THE — most fabulous houses you’ve ever provided us, Kelly! What a tour de force. I’m grateful to everyone who dug out photos & info on it too — enjoyed it all. There’s nothing about it not to love, especially as originally built & furnished — the light-as-air iron railing in front is simply perfect, as is the screening of the front door, not to mention my most favorite chandelier of my life in the front hall! It is astonishing that a house this unique has gone through 80 years and a foreclosure auction & retained as much of its originality as it has; what’s been removed could fairly easily be replaced if it is lucky enough to receive the history-loving owners it deserves. Kudos to the present occupants for loving it!

      Hello dear Rosewater, and thank you for thinking of me!

      I have actually been in a swoon since I clicked onto OHD for my daily fix, and saw this beauty!

      My second thought (the first of course being that this is one of the most beautiful modernes ever) — was that I had seen the house before. (In photos.)

      And indeed, I had been in touch with the owner about Art Deco architecture a couple years ago. Not sure if he is still the current owner, but I received a swift, courteous and helpful reply to my email.

      This is indeed a wonderful house!

    I think I saw Joan Crawford’s shadow in the kitchen.

    Fabulous house! It makes me want a cigarette and I don’t even smoke. So sorry our Modernistic house in Lawrenceburg got torn down to make way for yet another strip mall that never got built……….Hope the new owners keep it in such fantastic shape as the current owners have.

      Julles, I Googled Streamline Moderne and the short form def. was helpful. I wasn’t entirely aware of the subtle differences either. That contrasted with the specific example of “Regency / Hollywood Moderne Jim provided in reply to me above might do the trick. I’d say the house Cora posted, (also linked above), would fit the def. of “streamlined”. Cheers!

    I saw this place and instantly thought of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot because 75% of the houses on that show were of this style. Just stunning!!

    Good idea to paint this to bring out it true style.I might have to go and see this one myself,reminds me of my childhood homes on Miami Beach and I guess Muncie might make a good town to live in.Love that Kitchen and the bar,stairs,lighting just about everything!!

    Going on my favorites list for sure. This house is a stunner.

    Well. One set of neighbors wasn’t impressed. It literally is within a rock throw of the Kitselman mansion. I work at BSU. This is still a decent neighborhood for Muncie.

    This house is AMAZING, need a cpl of beach towels to catch the drool. Wish i could pick it up and move it here to SLC.

    Wonderful house! So playful. Like out of an Hercule Poirot mystery episode. This should be on the National Historic Register of Historic Places for its architectural uniqueness. Don’t change a thing please and hire a preservation architect for any renovations!

    That is just gorgeous. I’m happy in my craftsman, but this house is amazing.

    The Vitrolite tile in the bathroom is fantastic!! Wonder if (given the time frame of the house) if this was in the kitchen as well.

    That would make me consider moving to Muncie! Love the looks!

    My mom grew up in this house. And my aunt went on a date with David Letterman. He picked her up here.

      Wow! It’s so cool when people with personal connections to the homes post here. Do you have any stories from your mom about the house? (Or from your aunt about Dave? 😀 )
