Historic Homes of Noblesville--1619 Maple Ave.
Owners: Mike and Audrey Shepard, sons Max and Liam and schnoodle Crosley, since 2007
Style & History: This colonial style house was built in 1925. A fascinating fact about this home, owned by William Dietrich, is that it was originally built on the corner of 17th and Clinton Streets and was moved in the early 1970’s to make room the what is now the middle school. State Senator Luke Kenley had it moved to its current location. The home was too wide for its new location and had to be placed sideways.
What are your favorite features? The layout of our house is functional, we like the wood in the entry way and our updated kitchen. We have a lot of space in our backyard and it looks great with Christmas lights!
What work have you done on your house? We recently remodeled our third floor attic into an office space.
What do you like about this area/neighborhood? We love being outside, and we love being able to walk! We can walk both of our boys to school and we can bike to Forest Park.
