Property Description
Historic “Merrill House” is one of the most unique homes in Monroe County, designed by one of America's renowned architects. In 1928, thefounding dean of IU's School of Music commissioned NY-based Beaux-Arts architect Ernest Flagg to design a limestone house; the result was aremarkable 3000-sq-ft residence that comforts and inspires those within its 16-inch thick walls. The expansive great room, with red oak beamssupporting a cathedral ceiling filled with dormer sky light windows, is at once a grand entertainment space and an intimate family room. Flagg's use ofGreek proportions creates superior acoustic properties. A beautiful bronze, copper, and brass fireplace hood radiates a warm intimacy from one end ofthe room; at the opposite end is a spacious dining area under a hand-wrought candelabra. The updated kitchen (2006) tempts chefs and guests alikewith its cheerful enameled, imported Lacanche range (five gas burners, separate gas and electric ovens). Three bedrooms and two baths are on themain level; one bedroom with an external entrance is currently used as an office (with custom-made red-oak dual desk and bookshelves), anotherfeatures an inviting fireplace. The second story is a private master suite: a large bedroom with vaulted ceiling and dormer skylights, fireplace, closets,cedar storage closet, roof access door, and bath. Perhaps most wonderful of all -- the house is built around an utterly private, central court yard andgarden, visible only from most rooms in the house. Gazing up at the recently restored (2013) Vermont slate and copper roof and turret, this calm oasisoffers a distinctly Old World ambiance. This one-of-a-kind home is located at the top of the Vinegar Hill historic district neighborhood, on a .26 acre lot,with a fenced back yard, within walking distance of Indiana University, Bryan Park, downtown Bloomington, restaurants, schools. See attached for moreon this rare opportunity.
