    Wow!! What a place.. Big house, big lawn, big porches… I am a fan of big rooms as well (vs a lot of small ones) and this house seems to have that as well!

    Oh nuh-uh!!! This home can’t possibly be real. It’s like the best home on the best lot in the most beautiful setting ever. Those stained glass doors are completely mind-blowing. It’s so amazing I can’t even wrap my head around it. 💕😍

    Built for a gentleman farmer named Asa Rogers Sphar (1851-1929). The Spahr family, originally Swiss, came to this county from Virginia during the Revolution and lost two of their men to Indian attacks in the 1780’s. They settled on a 500 acre tract at this location and were successful farmers.
    Asa was an only child and inherited his father’s large farm 2 years before building the house in 1887. Sphar was a noted horse and livestock breeder with national connections. He married Emily Irvine French in 1879 and they raised a son and two daughters. Em still lived here, with her daughter and grandchildren, when she passed in 1951 at 92.

    Noblesville, IN

    This is either a new listing or a new set of photos. The new shots certainly feature the property much better than the last set. Glad I clipped the front parlor fireplace from the last set though; It’s a much more detailed shot. That fireplace is truly the most beautiful thing I’ve seen In years. It is the most exquisite, Aesthetic Period gem. Together with it’s divinely carved, top-shelf quality mantle after Frank Furness; flawless, complete set of Japonisme tiles in the fire surround featuring a cherry blossom frieze, sunflowers, and stylized Koi swimming in the vase, as well as the complimentary, monochrome tiled hearth, (thank god); not to mention the original, cast iron, (probably German), scene of Bacchanal and putti: The thing is a masterpiece! It’s been my desktop for months. Lucky buyer!

    You can have a good close look at it here; (click on image for larger size);

    Posted before, new agent and photos so moved to front page, comments are above are older.

    I think the description is a typo, the build date should be 1887.

    Wow! That aerial shot of the tree lined drive is really something! I’m not usually a fan of checkerboard floors, but it’s integral to the whole design of the powder room. I’m definitely envious of the high end kitchen features. The dining room appears to have the always covetous butler’s pantry. And the link from a previous comment that shows a close-up of one the many fireplaces is definitely worth a look.

    I would park my car at the road and take a horse-drawn carriage the rest of the way to the house.

    Amazing Gem. Anyone else find the front door stained glass window to be odd? I’ve never seen one where the art glass panel is off center from the mullions. It looks wrong to me. Like an after thought. Either someone was fitting it into a door with a mullion frame of squares and ripped out the mullions on the left to fit it in, or put the mullions in after to make more light in the hall. I could be wrong but it just interesting.

        I wonder why that is. Has to be an alteration. I have seen many quirky things in books but this is a first.

    All the coved ceilings are fantastic. I also know what I want Santa to bring me for Christmas, that front door and side lights. Big and beautiful!
