You haven’t stumbled across an ancient Chinese palace. It is a cottage in Fletcher Place, which happens to have a very imposing craftsman gateway structure.

This wouldn’t necessarily be a problem, but the cottage is not craftsman style and predates that style completely! This gate would, however, look fantastic in front of a bungalow. The most appropriate fence would be a simple picket fence, perhaps corralling a herd of nannies.

Michael LOVES turrets, and would love to add one to his home, however, this is not the time or place to build a contemporary turret over the entrance. Despite our personal existential crises, one must try to show restraint when it comes to adding turrets higgledy-piggledy.

    this is a great example of where the Indianapolis Historical Preservation Commission is a benefit to neighborhoods and fellow homeowners. This part of Fletcher Place (actually referred to as Fletcher Place II), is not under IHPC jurisdiction, and thus, this type of travesty can happpen.

    That house is not actually in Fletcher Place. It is in the Holy Rosary/Danish Church (aka Fletcher II) side of Virginia Avenue.
