Location: Indianapolis, Ind.
The Skinny: "Rarely will a home come around that so delicately embodies the essence of tranquil serenity such as this fabulous property," begins the listing for this sprawling home in a leafy Indianapolis neighborhood north of downtown, and it only gets more florid from there. Come, let the broker take you by the hand and lead you as "you move effortlessly through the 18 spectacular rooms," paying special attention to the "soft, natural warmness that is unparalleled," proof positive that "every inch of the sprawling 16,600+ square feet has been put into consideration when designing this masterpiece." Sounds inviting! Especially if you're a fan of a certain infamous Cadillac commercial, whose message the brokerbabble resoundingly endorses: "You've worked hard in life to get where you are, you've earned a home that can give back to you the comfort and beauty that you deserve." Of course, "deserving" really means having the ability to meet the $6.5M asking price, which will get you five bedrooms and bathrooms, and an eight-acre estate.
