Nantucket-Style Home in Indianapolis

Posted on April 2, 2009. Filed under: House Tours | Tags: , , , , , |

This home was featured at the Indianapolis Home-a-Rama that I went to recently, but despite the Midwestern location, it had a nice beachy vibe. The 6 bedroom, 8,000 square foot showhome built by Executive Homes had a stained-cedar shake exterior with stone and white trim. Builders Pete Gray and Jeff Keck worked with designer Michele Boggs of MB Designs to create “the essence of Nantucket living.”

A cozy sitting room off the master bedroom:

In the master bath, there are windows over the sinks where mirrors usually would be:

The hearth room off the kitchen has a barrel-vaulted ceiling:

I’m not sure how well it translates into these photos, but this house felt very light, bright, and happy. Designer Michele Boggs says that the home’s Nantucket style and abundance of windows inspired her “to decorate in a simple palette of green, white, and brown, bringing the outside in.”

To take the full tour of this home, go to Hooked on Houses, where you can also see the other 4 homes featured in the Indianapolis Homearama.
