About This Old House

This lovingly rehabilitated Italianate is situated in the heart of historic and picturesque Attica, Indiana. Built in 1887 by Charles Frederick Augustus Rohlfing, the impressive brick home sits on a landscaped double lot one block from downtown. Restaurants, banks, pharmacies, the historic Devon Theater, the Carnegie library, and a number of city parks are all within just a few minutes’ walk. Located little more than a half hour’s drive to Purdue University and downtown Lafayette, only 1 ½ hours to central Indianapolis, and just over 2 hours to downtown Chicago .

The prominent two-story home features a decorative pressed metal cornice and window hoods, three original side porches, and a wraparound front porch added in the Classical Revival period. Inside you’ll find elegantly spacious rooms, stunning woodwork, and wood floors with decorative borders. Complimenting the informal parlor is a fireplace with an Eastlake-inspired carved surround and a broad built-in window bench. The formal dining room features wood-paneled oil on canvas wall coverings and a spectacular stained glass window. The unique kitchen retains a large period sink and servant prep room. A half bath provides convenience on the first floor while two full baths serve the 3-4 bedrooms. A second floor laundry room makes the regular task a breeze.

Perhaps most attractive is the home’s move-in ready condition. Addressing years of deferred maintenance required a complete rehabilitation from 2007 to 2010. Great attention to detail was given to every aspect of the substantial investment which included the installation of new roofs on the main house and porches, extensive masonry repairs, and the restoration of the decorative wooden porches. The stunning interior saw the installation of all new systems, plaster repair, wood repair and refinishing, bathroom upgrades, and the expansion of much-desired closet space.

The property will be sold with Indiana Landmarks’ protective covenants attached to the deed to ensure long-term preservation. For additional information or to request a showing (proof of financing is required), contact the Western Regional Office at 812-232-4534 or tkleckner@indianalandmarks.org.
