Mama Carolla´s villa was built by the RH Shelborn Company in the 1920´s as a model home for a new style of homes to be built o the Indianapolis north side. This California Stucco design incorporates a Mediterranean style with a little touch of Spanish and Italian, and can be seen in several houses throughout the Meridian-Kessler neighborhood. Although the house has changed hands several times (it has been a home to several families, a glass factory, and a woodworking shop), its décor is strikingly similar t the original design. All of the wrought iron, and most of the light fixtures remain. Additional lighting consists of period fixtures in order to maintain the historical charm. And on winter nights, a wood burning fires glows in the fireplace exuding the warmth and family spirit of the house.
