Here is a true “statement home” located in historic Delphi, Indiana. Located in Delphi’s “South Hill” neighborhood, this home is three blocks from the elementary school, 15 minute walk to the high school, and Riley Park is two blocks away and can be accessed from the property using the “Ox Path” (in the 1800’s farmer brought their grain to the Red Mill on Deer Creek using the Ox Path). The original home was built in the early 1860’s by a farmer named Robinson and was lost through foreclosure in the late 1890’s. The local banking family took ownership and performed significant renovation in the style of the day. It has been known locally as a “Bowen” house and is one of three “Bowen” houses remaining in the community. The current owner bought the property in 1986 and raised their four children there and are selling as they have relocated to Southern Indiana. Unlike many grander houses of the day this home is not ostentatious in any way. There is a subtle practicality and dignity to the home that speaks of Midwestern values and culture. In addition to oak floors, (some carpet upstairs although hardwood underneath that carpet) there are double oak entry doors, stained and beveled cut glass, two large fireplaces, coffered ceiling in master bedroom downstairs, enormous pocket door and French doors in the parlor/music room, formal dining and living rooms……and all arranged in a very functional and efficient floor plan. Living and dining rooms have fireplaces faced with European tile. A new(2023), Lochinvar furnace powers the hot water radiant heat, Lochinvar 50 gallon water heater new 2023, electrical service upgraded to 200amp(separate 100amp on second floor) 2016, ALL plumbing supply lines replaced with PEX lines and a central control manifold in 2016. The whole house Generac generator(20kw) adds a level of security and safety. The site is quite unique for in town properties being 1.69 acres. The second floor hosts a jack and jill bath as well as a separate “mother in law” suite with separate entrance and kitchen, bath, bedroom and living room. That is a real benefit either for Air B&B, your mother in law, or guests.
