This is a RARE opportunity to own one of the last few remaining Italianate Style Historic homes in the city! It displays the architectural detailing characteristic of that style e.g. bracketed cornice, window hoods, bays, etc. and maintains a very high degree of architectural integrity. It is arguably the most intact high-style residential example of the Italianate style in the city, and is the only outstanding-rated Italianate residence per the 2011 inventory per Indiana Landmarks Assoc. The home rests on a large .5 ac lot and affords potential views of the Ohio River. You are just minutes from Historic Downtown''s restaurants, boutiques, and venues. This home is truly one of a kind, so call today for a tour! Serious buyers only, no showings will be permitted without a loan pre-approval letter or proof of cash statement. This home is listed as a Historic Home.... Indiana Landmarks must approve all offers and may take up to 30 days for approval. Room size and sqft are approx.

    This poor house.

    This is the third time it’s been on OHD and each time it just gets more pitiful.

    I want to hug the house.

    Sadly, this one’s been in a holding pattern for many years. Indiana Landmarks bought and stabilized the house, and sold it to “experienced historic house flippers” in 2015. Looks like they cleaned up a little, replaced a bit of siding, and ripped out lots of plaster. At least they’re not looking to make much profit on their $115k purchase.

      I hope they preserved and saved the lincrusta panels from the 2014 photos, somany people don’t realize that lincrusta can be removed and reused if you are very careful. I love this property, I hope someone saves it

    This one breaks my heart. The most optimistic thing I see is the collection of chandeliers beside the fireplace, waiting for the renovation completion so they can be rehung. Good luck.

    What is it that makes it so tempting for people who have no idea what they’re doing to start stripping all the plaster? Where do these people get the idea that that’s a thing you do when rehabbing an old property?

      I’ve asked that question thousands of times Hoyt C. It’s sorta like when we bought our current home, 1936 Tudor with fantastic original thick cedar clapboards. The first thing out of the realtor’s mouth was, you can always put on new siding.

      What else can you do when you take off the 70s paneling and the plaster just falls off the walls?
      I’m asking because that is the situation I am currently in.

    I love houses that look like wedding cake! This beauty deserves to be restored to its former glory, which still shines through.

    It’s a STILL a beauty — just needs lots of lovin’, imagination and money to recapture it!

    I wish I had the cash to restore this house. Talk about gorgeous, even in its present condition! Off to check the hubby’s lottery ticket from Friday night! ?

      I’m glad someone else said that. I remembered this one from being posted before, and as I scrolled through the pictures I kind of fell in love with it all over again. It needs a lot – A LOT – of work, but I think she is worth it.

    Who Wants to give me an insane amount of money and a plane ticket to Indiana? I would love to fix her up again. So beautiful even in her horrible state, how can people let this happen? I pray someone saves this one and restores her back to her original glory soon. What a waste.
