Indianapolis is famous for a myriad of reasons, not the least of which being Turn-of-the-Century Victorian homes. Considered historic treasures of the city, many of these "Painted Ladies", so named for their colorful, detailed exteriors, have been preserved and maintained for modern living. One stately Victorian mini-mansion is located at the corner of 17th and New Jersey. This home was originally built in 1872 by a carpenter who platted many of the homes in Lockerbie Square area several years after the Civil War. This is a one of a kind structure, both inside and out, in the downtown historic Herron-Morton Place neighborhood.
House was rebuilt from the studs up and is encapsulated with a thick layer of high efficiency foam. Rebuilt decks adorn the exterior.
