Pocket Neighborhoods Start To Fill Up Indy

A storybook community in Hamilton County inspires a sequel in Zionsville.

Indianapolis Monthly | May 2016

Inglenook, located in a relatively modest zip code near 99th Street and Westfield Boulevard, incites its share of double takes without the power of five-digit square footage.

Only 5 Home Sites Still Available At Inglenook of Carmel

In the first three months of 2014 Inglenook happily welcomed several new families into the Inglenook community! With the sales of the final Betty Sue, a custom-built Iris, Ellis, Plumrose, and the model Ellis, Inglenook’s cozy, little neighborhood is filling up.


Five home sites are still available on the west side of Maple Drive – #13, 20, 23, 26, and 27.  Homes sites #13 and #20 are currently under construction – an Iris with a full front porch and a Madrona respectively.  The Iris, Ross Chapin’s latest cottage home design, was built specifically for Inglenook and is a meld between the Ellis and the Madison.  This Iris will be completed and move-in ready in July.   The completion of the Madrona is hot on the heels of the Iris with finishing touches being put on in the months of August and September.  The final three open home sites will house another Iris and two Plumrose homes!

Stop on by, see the new construction, and experience the growing community!  Inglenook’s sales office is open Wednesday-Friday, 1-5PM and Saturday-Sunday, 1-4PM.  To schedule a private tour please email us at or contact us at 317.767.9760.

Neighborhood Porch Party


Thanks to all who came out to help celebrate Mardi Gras at Inglenook!  We had a wonderful time visiting with friends new and old.  The day was kicked off with the inaugural Krewe of Inglenook parade complete with a grand marshal, band, and a float!




The weather is warming up and houses are going up at Inglenook!  Basements have been dug for home sites #5, 6, and 7 – a custom-built extended Ellis, Iris, and the final Betty Sue respectively.  The East Side neighborhood construction is wrapping up with finishing touches being put on the sold Betty Sue and first ever Iris!


A wintery warm welcome to our newest Inglenook Family – Bambi and Noah – who moved in last month!


The Coho on home site #14 has recently sold, leaving one final home site available for a Coho.  If you’re interested in a Coho be sure to stop by soon and talk to Casey, our builder, or Amanda!

Home site #22 has also recently been reserved for a custom-built Plumrose.  This particular Inglenook family is changing up the home’s layout a bit to better fit their needs.  They’ll work hand-in-hand with Casey, our builder, and our architects from Ross Chapin Architects to complete their dream plan.

“Pocket” Making Debut

CARMEL, IN – Inglenook, a new “pocket” neighborhood, is under development on Carmel’s southside.
