About This 1860 Hubbard House In New Carlisle Indiana
Nestled in the countryside outside New Carlisle, Hubbard House is an eye-catching historic house with breathtaking original details inside and out. Constructed around 1860 in the Italianate style, the property received a Queen Anne makeover in the 1890s with the addition of a porch, altered roof shape, and solarium. After serving as a home for the Hubbard family for many years, the property became part of a home for the aged in the 1920s. Indiana Landmarks is working with owner Greencroft Communities to find a buyer who will restore and reuse the house.
The house offers approximately 2,300 square feet with highly ornate woodwork, fireplaces, and exquisite parquet floors. A two-story addition built in the mid-twentieth century adds another 2,200 square feet with a floor plan flexible for many reuses. The house will need a complete renovation including new heating, plumbing, exterior restoration work, and roof. Two fairly new high velocity air conditioning systems have been installed. The electric has been upgraded with new wiring and panels. A full basement is under the entire house.
Located about 20 minutes from South Bend and 90 minutes from Chicago, the site would make an excellent inn, office, or destination restaurant. Protective covenants will be included as part of the sale requiring review of exterior changes. The successful buyer will demonstrate financial capacity to undertake the project and experience with rehabilitation of historic properties. The site will be rezoned by Greencroft once a buyer with these qualifications is identified. Floor plans and additional photos are available.
