5 minutes or less to downtown Indianapolis, convention center, Lucas Oil, Lily, U of I, 8 minutes to IUPUI. My place is close to art and culture, restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities, there is always something going on! 1.5 mi from Fountain Square and one block from Garfield Park and Conservatory. Nothing is walkable from my house except for Garfield Park.
Each bedroom has a queen bed w/ memory foam mattress, the sofa is the size of a twin bed when back cushions are removed (very comfy) and I also have a queen size air mattress available upon request.
Restaurants close by:
Lunch- B's Po Boy, Pure Eatery, Santorini, WildWood Market
Dinner- BlueBeard (excellent food & drinks, a little pricier), La Margarita, Kuma's Corner (hard rock bar/restaurant with amazing burgers), Grog House, Pioneer, Thunderbird.
WildWood Market-wonderful meats/cheeses, local veggies, bread, organic/specialty items. Also a sandwich of the day (available until they are gone-often still have some at dinner time) , great "fast food" that is healthy! Soup of the day also.
CVS- corner of Shelby and Raymond
Groceries- Marsh-Albany St in Beech Grove, Target-4850 E. Southport Rd, Super Walmart 4650 S. Emerson Ave, Walmart (groceries only) 3805 S Keystone
The neighborhood is very quiet, especially at night. Every once in awhile the kids in the neighborhood will get a little noisy, but it is rare.
I am in the process of finding solid wood doors to replace the cheap ones that someone put on prior to me purchasing this property. One of the bedroom doors does not latch or lock, it does shut though. This should be fixed very soon!
According to police officers that come to our neighborhood meetings, it is the 2nd safest neighborhood in the metropolitan area. There are homeless in the area, they mind their own business and I have lived here for about 10 months now and never had any problems whatsoever, I just don't want people to be caught off guard by the fact that they are around and this is a working class neighborhood. However, they still advise not walking on streets at night that aren't well lit or leaving any items in sight in your car, we are downtown Indy:)
If I don't want to drive, Uber is super cheap and easy to Fountain Square or downtown, usually $7-10. There is also a Blue Indy stop at the end of my block where you can rent a car, there are convenient Blue Indy stops all throughout Indy.
