Today we’re taking a look at the fourth home on the Indianapolis Home-a-Rama house tour. This one was a little surprising. It had a kind of traditional Tudor look to it on the outside, but then it didn’t feel very Tudor-like when we stepped inside. It was built by Henderson Homes and decorated by Barbara Hage and Greg Garcia of John Kirk Furniture Galleries. The builder says he wanted the home to feature “classic Meridian Street elements and charm” (Meridian Street is famous in Indianapolis for its beautiful old homes–you can see my post with photos of them here). The designers say they wanted the decor “to portray a well-traveled family.”
It’s on the market for about $1.5 million, making it one of the least expensive homes on the tour. It has 5 bedrooms, 7 baths, and sits on a little over an acre. (The MLS listing has more information here.)
Take a look around and see what you think!
See what I mean? I bet you were surprised by some of the decorating, weren’t you? It wasn’t at all what I expected.
When we got there, no one was at the door to greet us, so we let ourselves in. Most of the lights were off, and it was very quiet (you can see in some of the photos it was a little dark). I think whoever volunteered to be at the home that afternoon must’ve been running late (or they were around someplace and we just didn’t run into them). If there hadn’t been a crowd of other people there, we would’ve thought we had wandered into a private home!
What do you think of this Tudor-inspired home? Based on the comments you’ve left for the first three homes on the tour, I have a feeling you’ll have plenty of opinions about this one, too!

We will not have a Hooked on Fridays blog party tomorrow because of the Home-a-Rama series this week–and because I’ll be on my way to Nashville for the BlissDom blogging conference. Hooked on Fridays will return next week, however, and so will I!
