A Neighborhood With Green Space

A Neighborhood With Green Space

This week we laid down grass in the pocket of six homes on the west side of Maple Drive. While this may not seem like a big event to some, the grassy green space is a big distinction that sets Inglenook apart from the run-of-the-mill suburban communities.

Inglenook’s grassy green belts serve as the heart of the community, acting as an anchor for the cottage homes, a place for neighbors and friends to mingle, and a traffic-free play-space for children (and dogs).

Beauty and fun aside, the green space also serves a functional safety role in the neighborhood. By design, big front porches, oversized windows, and active living spaces in the homes overlook the greens. This simple layout provides an added layer of security for the community, or as our architect Ross Chapin says, “it puts eyes on the commons”. Homes and neighbors look out for one another as a member of the Inglenook community.

So next time you stop by be sure to admire the grassy green for more than just it’s pretty face.

The Inglenook sales office is open Wednesday-Friday, 1-5PM and Saturday-Sunday, 1-4PM. To schedule a private tour please email us at inglenookcarmel@gmail.com or call us at 317.767.9760. Check out the remaining 4 home sites on our Neighborhood Plan.

Four Differences A Pocket Neighborhood Brings

Four Differences A Pocket Neighborhood Brings

Pocket neighborhoods are not your typical neighborhoods. The difference is apparent the moment you drive into one. There’s a quality and magic that exudes from their residents and a warm welcome from their neighborhood design. But what brings about that warm and fuzzy feeling?   It’s a simple recipe that’s, well, magical. Here are four magic beans from that very recipe:

  1. Welcoming green spaces and flower-lined walkways warmly greet visitors and friends. A breath of fresh air compared to the norm – ordinary garages and clunky driveways.

  2. Beyond the grassy greens, sprawling porches extend welcoming hands to the front door. Porches play an essential role in pocket neighborhood life bringing the inside out and providing a social space to relax and mingle with neighbors and friends.

  3. Instead of hundreds of big block homes cloned up and down a street, pocket neighborhoods feature comfortable cottage-style homes nestled around green spaces. Each home is unique down to the exterior paint color and cottage name.

  4. In today’s age neighbors are often just people you live near. By design, pocket neighborhoods foster relationships. Whether it’s walking your dog or simply sitting on the front porch, you’ll quickly find that these small daily interactions with your neighbors bring you closer together and build lasting relationships.

If these beans sounds like your kind of recipe, our pocket neighborhood might be the perfect fit for you.  

To experience the magic first-hand stop by for a private tour. Our sales office is open Wednesday-Friday, 1-5PM and Saturday-Sunday, 1-4PM. To schedule a private tour please contact us at inglenookcarmel@gmail.com or via phone at 317.767.9760.

Car-Free And Carefree Community

Car-Free And Carefree Community

Driving into Inglenook’s pocket neighborhood you’ll immediately notice that this isn’t your typical Carmel neighborhood!  The differences go beyond Inglenook’s cottage-style homes and big front porches to the physical design of the neighborhood itself.

Unlike most neighborhoods, Inglenook was designed for pedestrians, not cars. In place of wide, busy streets where cars buzz past, Inglenook has placed a quiet narrow street with guest parking along the outskirts.  Guests are warmly welcomed into the community with pedestrian friendly walkways and lush green spaces wrapped with native flowers instead of oversized garage doors.

Designing a neighborhood for families rather than cars cuts down on traffic and noise and heightens neighborhood safety for kids, pets, and adults.  Being car-free and carefree is just another little thing that sets Inglenook a part from the rest.

The next time you drive through a neighborhood take a minute to observe more than the house; be sure to look at the entirety of the neighborhood and all that it has to offer.

To schedule a private tour at Inglenook email us at inglenookcarmel@gmail.com or call us at 317.767.9760.  The Sales Office is open Wednesday-Friday, 2-6PM and Saturday-Sunday, 1-4PM.

The Perfect Sized New Home

The Perfect Sized New Home

In the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the first bed is too big, the second is too small, but the third is just right.  The same can be said when shopping for homes.  Too big of a home can leave you feeling secluded and overwhelmed with a “honey-do list” a mile long.  If the home is too small, you’re left feeling cramped and eye-to-eye with your neighbors.  Finding the perfect home that’s just the right size—not too big, not too small—blends the benefits of a single-family home (privacy, gardens, and storage) with the convenience of community living (minimal maintenance and instant friends).  Our pocket neighborhood is just that—an instant community that brings neighbors together naturally, balances personal and social space, and offers custom home designs to fit your family.

Unlike most Carmel developments with hundreds of houses, Inglenook’s pocket neighborhood features a sensible number of twenty-seven households, nestled together in groups of three to eight.  Keeping the number of houses low and situating them together around communal green spaces fosters a sense of community and daily interaction amongst residents.  Residents become more than neighbors; they look after one another as friends.

The community green space serves as a public space for neighbors to mingle, kids to play, and pets to romp.  Yet homeowners maintain their privacy through the placement of several natural barriers between public space and private property—a pedestrian-friendly sidewalk, native gardens, a low fence, residents’ personal garden beds, and finally the room-sized, covered front porches.  As you move closer and closer to the home, each layer of space moves from communal to personal.

Several design elements within Inglenook’s cottage homes also help preserve the privacy of each resident.  Using a term our architect, Ross Chapin, refers to as “nesting,” the “open” side of one house faces the “closed” side of the next.  While the number of windows is plentiful and their size is grand, “nesting” the homes together gives residents an added layer of privacy.  Furthermore, each home is designed so that the living spaces (living, kitchen, and dining) are located in the front of the home overlooking the community green space.  The private spaces (bedrooms, bathrooms, and offices) are located in rear and on the second floor of the home to ensure added privacy and restful naps.

If you’re feeling a bit like Goldilocks, stop by and see what Inglenook has to offer—it might be just right for you and yours.
