Want to own a piece of HGTV history? This single-family home in a trendy downtown Indianapolis neighborhood of Bates-Hendricks was featured on “Good Bones” back in 2016, and it’s now on the market.

Listed for $305K by Joel Aguilar of FS Houses, the property is everything home renovation show dreams are made of.  The 404-square-foot, two-level home at 519 Terrace Avenue was built in 1905 and remodeled “down to the studs” five years ago by “Good Bones” design and mother-daughter duo Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak Hawk, according to the listing.

The house is perfect for an individual, couple, or small family. It has ideal features like an extra large kitchen with ample granite-covered counter space and a sprawling island, a spacious open floor plan living space — complete with French door access to a large patio deck — three bedrooms, and two full baths with double vanities. It also includes an impressive backyard with a full privacy fence and parking space for two vehicles. 

But perhaps the best part about it is the trademark design style of the two celebrity renovators, who invested $170K on the extensive remodel during season two of the show, transforming the 1,800-square-foot up/down duplex into a functional home, according to In the episode “Flooded Two-Story Restored,” their company, Two Chicks and a Hammer, sold the residence for $265,537 in April 2017. And, while it’s listed for only $40,000 more just four years later, we have a feeling this move-in-ready masterpiece will sell for way over asking. 

Many of the design details in the home can satiate the most discernible homebuyer — from the hardwood floors, tile selections, and vintage-inspired light fixtures to the wood paneled entryway. We’re ready to send in an offer ourselves.
