New Year, New Homes Building Up

New Year, New Homes Building Up

Phase 1 construction continues at Inglenook of Zionsville!  The team is bundled up and working away on the Spruce (SOLD), Madison (SOLD), and Plumrose (AVAILABLE).  We have also begun construction on a second Spruce (AVAILABLE) on Homesite #1.  The Plumrose on Homesite #10 and the Spruce on Homesite #1 are early in the build process so there is still time for customization.  This Plumrose will be complete and move in ready for Spring 2018.  The available Spruce on Homesite #1 will follow close behind with a completion date also in Spring 2018.

Sneak peak at the Spruce

The Spruce is one of Ross Chapin’s newest cottage designs. This particular design was drawn up specifically for Inglenook of Zionsville. The expansive wrap around porch lends itself nicely to the beautifully wooded site and connected community. The porch opens up into an open great room that stretches the width of the home and includes the kitchen, dining, and living areas. Like all Inglenook designs, Ross Chapin has conscientiously divided the active areas from the passive (or more private) areas.

The first Spruce to be built will be a custom Spruce on homesite #12. We can’t wait to build this one! There are only two remaining homesites for a Spruce – homesite #1 and homesite #2. Contact us for specific information on pricing or to schedule a home plan meeting – or 317.767.9760.

Indianapolis Monthly: Pocket Neighborhoods Start To Fill Up Indy

A storybook community in Hamilton County inspires a sequel in Zionsville.

Indianapolis Monthly | May 2016

"In Carmel, gawking isn’t reserved for mansions. Inglenook, located in a relatively modest zip code near 99th Street and Westfield Boulevard, incites its share of double takes without the power of five-digit square footage. Colorful dollhouse cottages cozy together along communal greens, sidewalks lead to front stoops, and built-in flower boxes overflow on tidy porches, resembling the Florida Panhandle villages Hoosiers frequent on family vacations..."

The New Year brings a new addition to the Zionsville neighborhood – a single-story Betty! One Betty cottage home has been added to the Inglenook Zionsville neighborhood plan, housed on home site #14.

Ross Chapin's Betty Cottage Home

Meet Hunter and Spruce – Joining the Zionsville Home Line-up

Meet Hunter and Spruce – Joining the Zionsville Home Line-up

Joining the Plumrose, Madison, and Ellis for Inglenook’s Zionsville pocket neighborhood are two new home designs created by Ross Chapinthe Hunter and Spruce homes.

Hunter Cottage Home by Ross Chapin

The Hunter: A new three-bedroom option, the Hunter is comfortably spacious with architecturally angled walls and cozy custom built-ins that surprise and delight throughout the home. The architecturally angled walls provide design appeal, but also function in maximizing space in the dining and living rooms.

Here’s a sneak peak of the inside of the Hunter cottage home:

The Hunter also features two outdoor porches – one welcoming people as the main entrance into the home and the other on the opposite side of the living room, next to the kitchen. The second porch is a picture perfect spot for a grill, a couple of outdoor chairs for relaxing, or both!

Spruce Cottage Home by Ross Chapin

The Spruce: The Spruce welcomes friends and family with an expansive front porch stretching the width of the home. On a select number of homesites the porch will actually wrap around the side of the house. This enormous front porch extends the living space and creates an outdoor living experience unlike any other. Host family dinners, unwind on the front porch swing, or enjoy the sunset while sipping on sweet tea (or hot cocoa).

The porch opens into the dining, kitchen, and living rooms, which serve as the quintessential

heart of the home. Offering easy side-yard access the Spruce has a second, smaller porch or patio extending directly off of the kitchen. Rounding out the Spruce is a mainfloor master suite.   Two additional bedrooms and a third bath upstairs complete the upstairs.

The Hunter and Spruce homes have been created specifically for Inglenook’s Zionsville community! We are looking forward to bringing them to life!

Updated Home Designs for Inglenook's Zionsville Pocket Neighborhood

Updates To Our Favorite Inglenook Homes For Zionsville

We have just posted our updated and new Zionsville home designs on our website! In the line-up for Zionsville are three returning favorites and two new ones – the Plumrose, the Madison, the Ellis, the Hunter, and the Spruce.

For those of you who have toured the Plumrose, Madison, and Ellis at the Inglenook of Carmel pocket neighborhood, we’ve made a few changes we’re excited to share.

Returning Favorites:

Ross Chapin Plumrose Cottage Home

The Plumrose: A fan favorite at Inglenook of Carmel, the Plumrose is a three- or four- bedroom, two-and-a-half bath cottage-style home with beautiful vaulted bedroom ceilings, numerous large windows, and flexible design.   The flexibility in design is a unique attribute of the Plumrose. Take the second “bedroom” upstairs – make it a spacious, quiet master retreat and master bath, or a bright and cheery child’s bedroom and playroom, or a guest bedroom and office.  The possibilities are endless and the decision is yours.

Updates to the original Plumrose include the addition of a larger laundry/mudroom and a separate office area on the first floor, added height to the bathroom on the second floor, and the addition of a coat closet and pantry.

Inglenook Cottage Homes - 263

The Madison: The largest of the Inglenook cottage homes, the Madison is a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath cottage-style home. We have been working away to bring some exciting updates to the Madison! Updates include: a larger master bedroom on the main floor complete with walk-in closet and larger bath, the addition of a pantry and a coat closet, and most excitingly an option for a wrap-around porch with access to the side-yard!

The Ellis: We have blended two of our favorite cottage homes – the Ellis and Iris – to create a one-of-a-kind place to call home. The new three-bedroom Ellis now boasts a main floor master suite with walk-in closet and larger bath and a reconfigured laundry/mudroom area.   The Ellis also possesses several different options for your outdoor space – an expansive, room-sized front porch, or a cozy half-porch, a bedroom terrace or outdoor side porch.

We are nearing an official announcement to roll out the final neighborhood plan and begin accepting reservations. Single-story, two-bedroom homes will be available upon request.
