I said RIPPLE, dammit.

This type of English-like cottage, a very small single-family home, is very typical to post-WWII (1940s/1950s) neighborhoods of various cities, especially those in the Midwestern US.

Broad Ripple... I said RIPPLE... an historic neighborhood on the north side of Indianapolis, Indiana, contains many, many structures like this, most of which are now occupied not by small families, but instead by drunkard yuppie 20somethings.

This particular cottage is a detached 2BR/1.0BA unit with about 770 square feet and is modernized with a single-car garage. The "lengthy" proportions and compact footprint are suited to the older, small, and narrow lots of the area. Although its rooms are reasonably (for the period) large in size, the lack of a separate area in which to put a dining table is a bit unusual in this large of a structure. Otherwise, the thing's pretty unremarkable for the neighborhood and era.

And for the last time, the place is called Broad RIPPLE.
