    WOW… I mean – the house itself, and it’s super choice site and location, are very, VERY enviable.
    Knightstown is a bit far out of the city to be considered a bedroom community; but it aint that far; and for this house, and extra 20 minutes to your commute should be very doable to someone in metro Indy looking for just such a remarkable place. These days, that extra distance is an existential plus anyway: and Knightstown is a clean, quiet, safe community.

    The sad bit here (IMO) is the +or- 1900 Colonial Revival re-do of all the fireplaces! Oooof. Someone is going to have to spend a few pretty pennies to restore the marble, Italianate mantles and their iron work grate inserts which belong there. And the lighting fixtures: and all of that PAINT. Sigh… It will take money and effort; but the house itself is nearly pristine, and AB FAB; so yeah, WORTH IT! Heheheh. Wish I had the $$$ to make it all happen.

    What a bonus that you will have such RAD vintage kitchen and bathrooms! Steam heat!!

    Oh God – WANT!

    This is the kind of house that just makes me go bonkers. And as usual, you couldn’t even begin to build this house for the asking price. Meanwhile people will spend multiple times this much for a lick-and-stick McMansion. I hope and pray this house gets owners who will understand what they’ve got and what this house could be. I wish it was me!!

    That white tile bath is a jaw-dropper. The whole house is exquisite.
