The Marxson- Midcentury Modern with Beautiful Gardens

Beautiful, quiet, convenient, distinguished! Dream stay for families, nature lovers, gardeners, artists & writers, “The Marxson” was built in 1954 situated on an acre in one of Bloomington's most sought-after neighborhoods. Great for all ages of families (kid-friendly!) close to downtown, groceries, east and west side shopping, IU campus, but removed from the hustle and bustle for a bit of peace at the end of each day. 6 minute drive to the IMU, the east side, downtown, or west side, and ONE minute from the airport shuttle. Stone's throw to the beauty and respite of Lake Griffy and Cascades Parks. “Notable Home” in the first Midcentury Modern Historic District in the State of Indiana, the ranch has two master suites on opposite ends of the home and an additional bedroomor office in between. Energy-saving updates, as well as improvements to floor plan flow without compromising unique features of this beautiful home- original frosted glass front cabinetry, built-ins for books and pictures, glass block detailing, original door and glass window at the threshold a tranquil fountain to greet you, beautiful exposed beams in vaulted ceilings. Maximum natural light pours in from all directions. Huge bay window with custom cushions is spacious bench seating, a place for reading, or even a full-size bed for guests! Three full bathrooms-two tubs, (one of them a jacuzzi,) three showers, double sinks in the larger master suite. Carport, garage, and a covered porch connects the garage to the house. Parking pad at the back of the house allows for two additional vehicles parked away from the street. Wood burning fireplace made of floor-to-ceiling sandstone has an inscribed mantel- one of the best-known and inspiring feature of this home (firewood is provided.) Intercom system and NuTone sound system serves the entire house and outdoor patio. Updates include new windows and doors, a 2nd tankless hot water heater for the laundry room and jacuzzi tub bathroom, (traditional tank heater serves the kitchen and front suite,) new Bosch dishwasher and two sets of washer/dryers, insulating cellular blinds throughout, heated ceramic floors in four zones, hardwood floors, new master walk-in closet with custom shelving and pressed cork floor, energy efficient appliances, fresh interior and exterior paint. A shed and garage can provide some storage. Landscape design and mature trees will be managed professionally. Newly poured HUGE covered porch, opening to the oasis of the back yard is ideal for entertaining large or small groups, or simply for day-to-day enjoyment sheltered from sun and rain. Buried chain-link fence protects THREE garden areas, blocking deer and other nuisance animals from destroying your veggies, fruits, and flowers. 30' tall “snowball bush” greets you beside the parking pad, with tons of puffy white blooms in late spring. Lilacs, giant hibiscus, wild raspberries, blackberries, persimmons, gooseberries, and grape vines are for your harvest and enjoyment. Large chicken run and coops can remain stocked with 5 hens for fresh eggs daily, or hens can be removed to serve as a dog run or another protected garden area. Partially furnished- piano, music stand, small couch, bookshelf, corner (printer) table, kitchen island, and dining room table with 6 chairs may remain. This home maintains a small collection of historical blueprints, photos, and articles, featuring “The Marxson,” for tenants and their guests to enjoy.
