Catamaran Circle, Cicero, Indiana

This house is like a good book. I picked up for its cover, read a few pages to get hooked, and then skipped to the ending:

This is the Morse Reservoir in Cicero, Indiana. It has 32 miles of shoreline and about 600 homeowners who enjoy it. This particular house was built in 1996. 

The back cover of this house made me think of the front cover of this book, because even though the house was built in 1996, it has the potential to look Timeless.

Architect Patrick Ahearn is known for his classic approach, where beach house foyers often look like this...

...which means if we were to copy him, our listing foyer could go from this...

... to something a little more timeless, like this:

Or this, just because I thought slate floors would look pretty with the existing rug (and I felt more like playing in photoshop than writing or doing laundry).

The view from the foyer into the great room gives another opportunity to imagine it through Patrick's eyes:

The house is already very open and airy, much like Patrick's designs.

Let's put a bookmark here at the breakfast nook because it's in a direct sightline from the foyer.

If it were mine, I'd make the view as pretty as a book cover:

The breakfast nook opens to another great spot to enjoy coffee, this covered porch...

...which in turn opens into yet another great spot on the deck:

Rounding out the main floor tour are the powder room, laundry room, and master suite with its own private balcony.

The house is 4,026 square feet. There are 3 additional bedrooms with 1 full and 1 half bath on the lower level.

This house already has so many great features that adding a few more timeless touches would definitely turn it into a bestseller. After all, what's Catamaran without a catamaran?

The house listing is here. The wooden runabout listing is here and the catamaran listing is here.
