A true neighborhood feel for a reasonable price sets the Carmel Indiana subdivision of Village of Mount Carmel apart, even earning it recognition as one of 12 Great Neighborhoods on the Rise by Indianapolis Monthly magazine.
This Carmel neighborhood comprises 485 homes ranging from modest 1-story ranch homes built in the 1950s to much larger 2-story homes constructed in the 1990s. Village of Mount Carmel homes sold in the past 12 months have included a 1761-square foot ranch home built in 1976 and sold for $119,000 to a 3941-square foot 2-story home with a basement built in 1995 and sold for $445,000.
Plenty of space between neighbors (most homes sit on lots that are nearly half an acre or more) and some great community activities add to the appeal of the Village of Mount Carmel. The Village of Mount Carmel Civic Organization sponsors an annual Halloween parade and Easter egg hunt, and organizes the Lighting of the Way – street side holiday luminaries set up at each residence. The civic organization also provides residents with neighborhood directories, a quarterly newsletter and a Web site. Residents pay a nominal homeowners association fee, which includes use of a community pool. Students in this Carmel neighborhood attend Carmel Clay Schools.
