In prosperity Golden Hill historic homes were designed primarily for Indy’s elite between 1915 and 1940. Idyllic scenery offered a break for privacy without sacrificing the convenience of downtown amenities. Representing a range of Revitalization-era architecture, the homes earned the neighborhood a place on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.

One of the first houses in the neighborhood was a Gambrel Colonial, built for James Whitcomb Riley’s nephew Edmund Eitel in 1917. In 2007, architect Jim McQuiston completely transformed the house into an elegant, state-of-the-art venue. Although it has been in the market for a number of years and now has been out of the market, Realtor Bif Ward believes the price is now reasonable and has fallen $ 1 million since it was first listed. “The right buyer will appreciate the exquisite, artistic design,” says Ward. It was awarded the American Institute of Architects Prize in 2009.

To modernize the space, McQuiston mixed lighter grains of maple and cherry wood with the cool texture of stainless steel and its coarser cousin Cor-Ten steel. McQuiston designed the impressive spiral staircase, fountain and cabinets throughout the house. The cohesion of his designs
creates a pseudo-funhouse feeling – what’s behind door number one? When you come through the front entrance, your eyes will be drawn to the beams and large windows. On the left, a guest toilet is hidden in a row of seemingly normal closet doors.

Thanks to its almost two hectare property, you will be spoiled with spectacular landscapes all year round. All you have to do is determine which room has the best view.
