About 5799 Sunset Lane

1930s era estate underwent a meticulous renovation in 1995 creating the most exquisite and timeless estate in Indianapolis. Adjacent to the former Lilly estate, now the homes of the Chancellors of Indiana University, the property rests on the exclusive and sought after Sunset Lane. With lush rolling grounds overlooking the private Lilly Pool, the picturesque property exudes elegance and tranquility. Inside extraordinary finishes complete every space - European fireplaces originating in the 1600-1800s, antique chandeliers and sconces, and the finest woods available. This classic home remains true to its heritage in the elegant drawing room with adjacent winter porch, stunning library fitted head to toe with fine English walnut, and the spacious, graceful dining room. The heart of the home rests in the open and flowing great room, kitchen and family dining space. Finished with oak floors, soaring ceilings, warm fireplaces and beautiful views of the rear property, the home is casually elegant. Gourmet kitchen is equipped with only the best: La Cornue range, ovens and warming drawers, double Subzero refrigerator and freezers seamlessly integrated into custom butternut cabinetry, and endless granite counters for prep and serving. The residence allows for easy entertaining with large butler's pantry on the main level and full catering kitchen below. The lower level features a large wine cellar, charming bar with wormy chestnut walls and finishes, media room, and cloak room for guests' personal belongings. The upper levels host five bedrooms including the master retreat. This space is a quiet respite featuring large bath and private veranda overlooking the stunning rear yard. Resting on over 3 acres the property features tennis, pool with pool house, blue slate patios, and rolling lush gardens featuring a waterfall leading to the stream below. A true sanctuary within Washington Township, rarely does a property of this magnitude, luxury, and grace come available.
