If you enjoy a funky twist of modern and rustic, you'll appreciate this unique space. The Architect was inspired by the 130-year-old building materials discovered during renovation, incorporating these into the design in creative ways.
Enter a stairwell that hearkens to the mysterious Croatian ruins that the hosts traveled to in 2014, lit by an antique fixture with a warm yellow LED glow. The transition is replete with custom artwork from travels that connect 1890s Indy to 1400s Dubrovnik. In the upstairs hall, explore this building's history with a "Truth Wall," where the Architect peeled back the layers, created a deconstructed & intimate experience with how old walls were built, seeing plaster from the inside, repurposing colorful lathe onto the threshold, and highlighting a vestigial strip of gold wallpaper that was completely hidden pre-reno.
Step through the threshold into a bright & airy open space! We hope you'll enjoy the little details, like original cedar wood used to separate spaces, an exposed brick chimney, repurposed lathe used as trim, and a sliding barn door made from an old door we discovered in the attic! We have poured our hearts into personally restoring this neglected property into a unique and beautiful home. Inside, the rustic elements contrast with clean, modern decor.
Enjoy restored hardwood floors, spacious living space, 2 bedrooms, and an large balcony with a view of the Indy skyline! The main bedroom has a queen bed that sleeps two with a firm Swedish mattress. The second bedroom is small, with a full murphy bed that folds up when not in use (best for just a couple of nights.)There is also a bonus ottoman that can fold out into a single, memory foam bed. This option can be made available when adding a 5th person, but please note that it does lack the privacy of the other two bedrooms.
The best part is the completely new bathroom! It features slate tile, modern vanity, dual-flush toilet, and a large, custom-built shower with dual shower heads- it's also perfect for a romantic getaway!
The upstairs unit of this duplex is 100% private, with a separate entry on the shared front porch. You'll have tons of room to spread out and make yourself at home with an open kitchen, private bathroom, and spacious bedroom and living room.
Free parking both out back (accessed via alley) & on street in front.
Other things to note
There are some dogs in the neighborhood, so please be aware that you may hear dogs barking at times. (We have earplugs if needed, too).
Parking out front can fill up, but there is parking around back off the alley. Please enter through the front door.
