Adventures in Real Estate: How's this for a new HGTV show?

buy.gif

We sold a FANTASTIC Irvington house last week. Can't share all the details yet but let's just say that this place is one of the most eye-popping vintage homes in our Irvington 'hood. Cute as a button, perfect for the adorable new owners, incredible design inside and out, and a fantastic price. In fact, we love it so much, we would buy it ourselves if we could.croppedlogo.png

Which is exactly what Jamie told the buyers: If you don't buy this house, I will.

OK, so it wasn't a serious threat, but it was certainly an earnest expression of how much we loved the house. Do we need another house? No. But it got me thinking that this could be the basis for a new show on HGTV.

 As you may know, Jamie and I are HGTV addicts. Love It Or List It our current favorite. So how about: Buy It Or We Will. Here's the set up. Two incredibly attractive and enthusiastic Realtors show homebuyers Indianapolis' fabulous vintage homes. The buyers adore the house. But here's the catch: so do the real estate agents, Deb and Jamie!  At that point it's a race against time to see who gets to buy it first.

I think it's safe to say that Jamie and I wouldn't be in business if we actually tried to buy every amazing house we showed our clients. But wouldn't it be a great show? At the very least, our love for Irvington homes makes it much easier for us to sell them.

Deb Kent and Jamie Willis are Realtors with the Beacon Group of Keller Williams, dedicated to home ownership in Irvington and other remarkable vintage neighborhoods inside near downtown Indianapolis. Deb and Jamie can help you find a great house or sell the one you're in. Call or text (812) 361-8302 or email info@indybeaconhomes.com

Friday on Washington Street - Gowns, art, music, food. Like.

If you know anything about us, you know we're thrift-shop devotees. Why buy new when you can find retulled_pic_2.jpgsomething gorgeous, barely used, and crazy-cheap at a thrift or consignment shop? And that goes DOUBLE for those once-in-a-lifetime (okay, maybe twice or thrice) weddings, proms, black-tie affairs . .

Which is why we're excited about reTULLEd on Washington, and really pumped for this Friday night. ReTULLEd will feature several hand-painted gowns along with a specially-commissioned gown and artwork by Kyle Ragsdale. The store will be open from 7 to 9pm for the event. Smokin' hot musician Gordon Bonham will be playing acoustic guitar. And if art and music aren't enough of a draw, they're also serving light refreshments! Call owner Amy Lee if you need more information: 358-8802.

More deets:

Gorgeous day today in downtown Irvington. Went back to Roll With It for lunch (that's twice in one week), saw the great progress on the new Ossip store, and checked out some vintage Beatles albums at Tiqueable.

There was an interesting story about the Irvington Wellness Center this week in the Indy Star. (If you missed it, click here) which got us thinking about how great it would be to have a regular wellness column on our site. laura.jpg

Lucky for us, Laura Lea Sweney, who runs the Wellness Center with Beth Mast, has signed on to write for IndyIrvington.com!

We're interested in massage and are very curious about the new Zero Balancing so we look forward to hearing from Laura, and learning ways to keep our mind, bodies and spirits in balance.

Turns out that Ellenberger Park right here in Irvington is slated for an awesome community center. And by awesome we mean -- huge deck with fireplace, a game room, fitness center, small iceskating rink along with the existing swimming pool (which we sampled last summer by the way and LOVED!)

Andre Denman, a planner with Indy Parks and Rec, unveiled the plans to the Irvington Development Organization board on Monday. The Ellenberger center will be the jewel in Indy Parks's crown -- over $8 million, three times more than the city has ever spent on a community center. There are already 100 parking spots on the property. They're adding another 80 under the building itself!

Of course these things don't magically appear overnight. Andre said it's a 3-5 year project and lots of fundraising needs to happen, of course. But wow. We are thrilled that Irvington will be home to this state-of-the-art community center. Can't wait!

Named a tree, won a prize, learned some stuff.

We went to the Green Hour last night at the Legend, our first time. The Green Hour is hosted by the Irvington Green Initiative, which promotes sustainability and encourages people to conceive and share new green ideas. (Let's just say it is yet another reason I'm so proud to be an Irvingtonian).

Unexpected bonus: I won a (biodegradable) pot of Coral Bells from Spotts Lawearth_guy.jpgn and Garden Service for knowing the correct answer to the question: What is the state tree of Indiana (it's the Tulip Tree, by the way.)

Am I a model of sustainability? Hardly. I drive a gas guzzler, I don't compost, I'm sure I could do a better job recycling. In fact, if you read Postsecret, you may have seen this:

No, I didn't submit this card, nor have I had an affair with a married man. And I do recycle. But I do feel guilty about the fact that I haven't lived as green as I'd like. I'm hoping that hanging around with IGI types will change that. Jamie and I have talked about raising bees or chickens. Speaking of which, has anyone else heard the rooster of Irvington? We hear him crowing every day and LOVE IT.

Back to the Green Hour. The first speaker talked about Distelrath Farm, an educational farm on Raymond Street, of all places. They grow organic veggies, raise livestock and produce eggs.  Next up, Linda Proffitt from the Global Peace Initiative enthusiastically described the Peaceful Grounds project, which is transforming an abandoned concrete facility in Southport into a sustainable living educational center, cafe and farm market.

Last but not least was Jordan Updike (pictured), exec director of Earth House Collective, whose goal is to "support the arts, promote healthy living, and encourage sustainability." Jordan described himself as a former SUV-driving, Big Mac-eating all American guy" who sold his car and now bikes everywhere since having his "consciousness raised," as they used to say back in the day. You have to check out their website - there is SO much going on there, and it all seems so fun and fascinating. Jordan and his group have made an amazing contribution to Indianapolis. Very inspiring!

When the presentations were over, we hung around for a little mingling, then took our new Coral Bells friend home -- but not to plant, not yet! As the Spotts folks pointed out, don't be fooled by the warm weather. Hold your planting for a few weeks yet. Despite the heat, Mother Earth just isn't ready for all that digging.

Patience.
