Known by local residents as the Michalares Mansion, now is the time to own some of Bloomington's history. Used as a personal residence by the Michalares family many will remember taking baton twirling classes there over his 44 year career as well as being the home of the M&M Trophy Company. This large home currently offers 6 bedrooms & 4.5 baths in the main house, large rooms, open floor plan, formal and informal spaces, 5+ fireplaces, and indoor "spa" room that has an indoor lap pool & sauna and much, much more. Currently the basement is uses as a 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment and the former catering kitchen/pool house was also converted to a 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment. The grounds are made up of 6.25 acres with limestone & concrete fences, fountains, statuary, additional out buildings for storage, swimming pool and much more. The former M&M Trophy Company consisted of 2 large outbuildings, one open storage building with 3,500 sq. ft and the other used as offices and storage with 5,000 sq. ft. This unique property offers a variety of uses and is now in the Ellettsville zoning districts which allow for many more uses. A must see property.
