affordable housing. There are some craftsman homes there right now that have totally rehabbed
and perfect for a first time home buyer. You know that area is artsy with festivals coffee shops,
farmers market and soon a fitness trail. The best way to decide which way to go, is to visit the
areas and the homes. You'll know your "home" when you are in it. Let me know if you would
like to meet me for coffee and take a look at a couple. Thanks, Marita Topmiller, 513-4652,
We asked this question just prior to moving to the area- in 2008--an update, we ended up in Emerson Heights, which is nestled between Irvington, Bosart Brown, Little Flower, Community Heights, and the like. A very lovely area indeed and you cannot beat the short commute! There are tons of neighborhood activities and also Ellengerber is a clean park, great for long walks with the pup.
Also the contruction of the homes is very solid, they have wonderful character which has been exceptionally well preserved. -- Every home in the tract is from 1910-mid 1930's! Arched doorways, plaster walls, brick bungalows, etc...
Also, Emerson Heights has now been nominated for the national register of historic places. So if you are looking for a beautiful area on the eastside, I can definitely now vouche for both Little Flower and Emerson Heights.
I also sell in Fishers and the neighborhoods are entirely different. There is an older section of Fishers that is very charming affording the ability to walk to restaurants and go to their free outdoor concerts. While I agree Fishers has many newer cookie-cutter homes it does offer the older homes as a wonderful alternative.
There are some great buys in all of those areas right now!
If you are not already working with an agent I would be happy to show you some of the areas so you
can make the right decision for your family.
If you love what the homes have to offer, don't let the fact that they are in Marion turn you away. I think you would be pleasantly surprised with the golden nuggets you would find in this hidden community. We are close to downtown which offers the arts, sports, restaurants, galleries, etc., and close to interstate access to all parts of downtown. It is obvious, I feel in Little Flower we have the best of everything without the fluff or potential high taxes that might be recognized in the Fishers area.
