Neighborhood Watch - Hoosier Acres

Hoosier Acres is one of Bloomington's classic neighborhoods. Development started in the 1960's and continues even today. Architecture ranges from mid-century modern to classic Georgian design. The lots are large, the streets are quiet and you can walk to the market, restaurants and shopping.
Currently there are four houses on the market in Hoosier Acres. Three are priced in the mid $300's and one is priced over one million. Pictured above is a lovely home that is currently priced at $349,900. The home features four bedrooms, two and a half baths and has over 2500 square feet. Walk in and you are instantly surprised by the high ceilings which are not characteristic for homes built in the 60's. Walk through the living room and you enter the library lined with shelves. The lot is quite large and level.
Within the past year five homes have sold in Hoosier Acres and they have ranged in sales priced from $185,000 to $330,500. The low priced home was actually purchased as a 'tear down' and a large limestone house is now standing in its place.
If you have a love for mature trees, quiet streets, architecturally diverse homes and a close-in location, you should check out Hoosier Acres.


  1. I hear there are lots of beautiful homes for sale there, including a fabulous new pocket listing!

  2. That's true. Three parties have seen it in the past two weeks and two different parties have express interest, one coming back for a third visit. I don't know if the term 'pocket listing' is appropriate in this case though.

  3. Well, we'd like to make an offer tonight of $299,999.99.
