Spacious Home in America's Heartland

Three bedroom, 1 1/2 bath home located on the North Side of Indianapolis, Indiana with large, private backyard in quiet and safe neighborhood. Indianapolis (the "Circle City") is the the 13th-largest city and is home to the Indianapolis 500, Brickyard 400, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), Butler University, Marian University, the world's largest Children's Museum, the Monon Trail, Indiana Caverns, Eiteljorg Museum, Indiana State Museum, Lake Michigan, and so much more. We live very centrally, just 20 minutes from downtown.

Indianapolis is one of the largest cities in the U.S. and is located in the Midwest--an area in the center of the U.S. known for it's generosity, warmth, kindness, and hard work ethic. Residents from Indiana are called "Hoosiers" and we are proud to be known for our "Hoosier Hospitality!"

Easy access to downtown, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Meridian Kessler, Broad Ripple, Carmel, and more. Close to the cities of Chicago (3 hours), Cincinatti (1 1/2 hours), Louisville (2 hours), St. Louis (3 hours 45 minutes), Detroit (4 hours), Milwaukee (4 hours) and others. We have 2 dogs but will board both of them during an exchange, and they will not be present. You could have access to our Honda Civic Hybrid (seats 4 comfortably, although there are five seatbelts).

For guests, we have a list of places to go, restaurants to try, and things to do, complete with dates for events, and addresses. All are welcome in our home!

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Indianapolis Airport - 21.9 miles (30 minutes)

Our neighborhood is called Delaware Trails, a neighborhood with families of all ages. It's very quiet, and people are often walking their dogs, exercising, and children are occasionally out riding their bikes. We love our neighborhood because it is close to SO MUCH in our city! Within 30 minutes of us are several award-winning restaurants, beautiful parks, museums, trails, historic neighborhoods, and more. Indianapolis is a great place to raise children. Just north of us is Carmel, a community that is nationally known for being one of the most active family communities in America. We are also very close to historic Meridian Street and the historic neighborhoods of Meridian Kessler, Butler-Tarkington, and others.

About Our Family

My husband and I were both born in Indiana, both love to travel, spend time with friends, and especially, especially, cook and try new restaurants! :) We have one son, Theodore, our little Love. We have two small dogs, but we always kennel them when we go on vacation because they are escape artists! We love them dearly, too. We have lots of family in Indianapolis who would be very happy to meet you and share a meal!

Lifestyle

My husband and I are active and pretty busy! We love our location because we can be anywhere within 20 minutes--Carmel or Geist to see family, downtown to go out to eat, Broad Ripple to go to the farmer's market, or just around our neighborhood to relax and enjoy our neighbors. We have a 1 1/2 and 3 1/2 year old...they keep us busy! Marian loves to cook, garden, read and Reid loves to play one of his many (5 and counting...) guitars and learn about history. We love to travel (of course), go out to eat, and just have fun in general! Both of our families live within 35 minutes of us, and see them each weekly.
