New Vintage Mod Carriage House Downtown

Located in: Indianapolis
New construction 2019, fully furnished carriage house apartment in downtown Indy. Light and airy with a Mid-Century Modern design aesthetic. All the latest tech in a comfortable home within walking distance or cheap ride share to the hippest restaurants and watering holes Indy offers. Come for a weekend to explore the culinary scene, or stay for a week when you’re in town for work or a convention. Let us show you some modern, urban Hoosier Hospitality we’re famous for here.

The Space

The King Park Outback is a brand new construction 700 square foot carriage house apartment built above our garage in the Kennedy-King neighborhood. All of the conveniences of home, including a full kitchen with full-sized appliances with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal; open living/dining/kitchen area with a separate bedroom; and a full bath with stackable washer & dryer for your use (**NOTE: Washer is out of service as of 7/27/19; awaiting warranty repair**). Furnishings from our extensive collection of mid-century modern decor (including an Eero Saarinen Executive Chair by Knoll), blended with a clean modern aesthetic to create a cozy spot to settle in for as long as you’d like.

The bedroom has a queen bed with memory foam & coil mattress and plenty of storage in the walk-in closet. The living area includes an optional queen air mattress, to accommodate up to 4 people maximum. We also have repurposed a mid-century hi-fi cabinet with new high quality speakers and a Bluetooth receiver, so you can play your tunes in style! Convenient dining table doubles as a work/desk area if you travel to Indy for business.

We offer high speed Wi-fi for all of the work or ignoring-your-travel-companion-by-staring-at-your-devices activities. That same Wi-fi also powers the 50” Roku TV where you can stream from all the services or broadcast your favorite vacation photos and videos.

The Things (to do)

On top of the awesome space is its proximity to all that Indy's globally recognized downtown has to offer:
- Walkable access to top Indy restaurants & watering holes: Provider Coffee, Cannon Ball Brewing Company, West Fork Whiskey, Tinker Street restaurant (nationally renowned local & seasonal fusion), Festiva (Mexican fusion), Greeks Pizza, and Kountry Kitchen Soul Food Kitchen (also nationally renowned soul food spot hyped by President #44)
- Get to the heart of downtown with a $5-6 Lyft ride
- Walk to Mass Ave Arts District on the Monon Trail right across the street
- Walkable to Kennedy King Park Landmark For Peace, the site where Robert Kennedy delivered his immortal words on the night of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination

About our name:
We are located in the Kennedy-King neighborhood which includes King Park; it's a landing spot for you on your travels to Indy; and the unit is in our backyard, thus it's "out back" from our home. Plus, we plan to bring in a king's crown motif by way of Basquiat's crown designs as well as some local historical artifacts over time. So there you have it. Come chill like royalty!

Guest Access

Access to the unit is via a smart lock. If you download the corresponding app, you can use the proximity of your phone to lock and unlock the door. Alternatively, a keypad is present to do the same. You have free reign of the entire apartment but not the garage below.

You will access the unit from the alley behind the garage and park in the driveway and come in through the gate (gate coming August 2019), which requires a code that we provide closer to your arrival date. Please note that we ask you park only in front of the blue garage door so that we can get in and out of the other door as necessary. We may contact you at any time to move a vehicle blocking our way in or out.

The driveway/alley and front door of the unit are monitored with security cameras for everyone’s safety. There are no cameras in the unit, and we respect your privacy.

Guest Interaction

We live in the house 60 feet away, so you may hear us watching TV on the screened-in porch and laughing hysterically at our favorite shows or spot us doing some yard work. We will respect your privacy, but we are always a text or call away if you need anything, or if you want to join us on the porch for socializing.

Other things to note

The Roku TV is not hooked up to cable. Instead, it allows you to login to dozens of streaming apps, including DirecTV Now, ESPN, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and dozens more. There’s a guest access mode enabled on the TV that allows you to set your check out date and logs you out of all the apps automatically. No purchases are allowed, so you won’t be able to download paid apps.

A door code will be generated for you that will be valid during your stay. Alternatively, you can download the August app to control the locks via your smartphone or even your smart watch. More details as your arrival date nears.

Please be mindful of turnaround time for the cleaning crew by loading the dishwasher and/or hand cleaning any other dishes and kitchen items. You don’t need to wash the towels or bed linens, however, as the cleaning crew supplies them for us.

We hope everything at the King Park Outback is to your liking, so please do not hesitate to reach out to us the moment you need an item that you might have left at home, have an issue with anything in the unit, need help connecting to Wi-Fi, or anything else. We’re not opposed to special requests to make your stay special!

Welcome to Indy and to the King Park Outback!

The Neighborhood

The best feature of the King Park Outback is the neighborhood. The Kennedy-King neighborhood sits at the northeast corner of downtown Indy and hosts a rich cultural history (jazz greats Wes Montgomery and Buddy Powell grew up one block away), a plethora of local hotspots, and a laid back, diverse residential vibe. Kennedy-King is a beautiful tight-knit, friendly neighborhood in the heart of Indianapolis. Kennedy-King is in an urban area of Indianapolis, so you may come across or encounter all types of people and walks of life or hear the occasional street noise. We want to make sure you enjoy your stay and know what to expect when you arrive. We love the neighborhood and feel completely safe in it along with the surrounding community, but we encourage you to use common sense by not leaving valuables in plain sight in your vehicle and being cognizant of your surroundings.

Just a half block from your door is West Fork Whiskey, a popular local distillery that serves incredibly creative craft cocktails, and Cannon Ball Brewing Company which not only pours some of their excellent and thoughtful beers, but they also serve high concept bar food crafted in front of you by the chef co-owner. Both places have quickly become hot spots for the neighborhood, and are a great way to feel like a local. Besides that, Provider, the hottest coffee shop in Indy and nationally-recognized, is 1 block away and serves rotating special coffee drinks (including the Coat Check Cola and a Pistachio latte spritzed with rose water), the best biscuit breakfast sandwiches anywhere, and craft cocktails until late evening during the week or late night on weekends. If you plan to do some cooking, there's a Kroger just a 5-minute walk away, or we have a Whole Foods and Needler's Fresh Market available via a quick drive downtown.

Not only are these and other spots walkable within 5 minutes, but we are located right on the Monon Trail, our longest local greenway that extends from just south of our home where it meets the tip of the Mass Ave cultural district and the world famous Cultural Trail to the farthest stretches of the northern suburbs. The Monon is popular with joggers, bikers and casual strollers. Coming in 2019 is a new station for the Pacers Bike Share a half block from our place, which will give you access to cheap bike rental to head downtown to explore the cultural trail or head north to the village of Broad Ripple, or if you’re adventurous, up to the cultural district in Carmel! Or pick up a Bird or Lime scooter and zip over to the Downtown Canal to take in museums and gondola rides. If you're coming for an event at the State Fairgrounds, we're a 5 minute drive from there as well.

From October through April is an excellent Saturday Farmer’s Market just a half mile away at the Circle City Industrial Complex, which is the current artists’ hot spot with dozens of galleries (always packed for First Friday art tours), a brewery, a distillery, and craft makers all under the same roof as farm fresh produce and other goods. During the summer months, the farmer's market is every Wednesday from 9:30 to 1:00 at City Market, just two blocks east of the Circle downtown.

Getting Around

Whether you like to walk, bike, drive, Lyft, or ride an electric scooter, the King Park Outback is very accessible to the city. Free and easy off-street (1 spot) and on-street (unlimited) parking at the house.

As noted above, you have far-reaching access via our excellent network of trails, or you can even rent a shared electric car from BlueIndy, the nation’s first fully electric car share service with 200 parking spots all over the city. The nearest station is just 1 block away, across the street from the Provider coffee shop.
