Indianapolis Monthly Magazine's 2003 Dream Home Features Chadsworth's Columns
 
 

WILMINGTON, N.C., August 26, 2003 R.J. Klein and Associates, Inc., architect and builder of Indianapolis Monthly
Magazine’s 2003 DREAM HOME
selected Chadsworth’s 1.800.COLUMNS PolyStone® Columns to be used on the interior and
exterior of this year’s fabulous Dream Home.

 

R.J. Klein has been designing and building fine homes in Indianapolis since 1969, and is known for his creative designs as well as
the beautiful moldings and millwork in the homes he builds.  “He creates homes that will be the historic residences of the future,”
says interior designer Debra J. Smith.

 

The entrance hall introduces many details that repeat throughout the home.  Simple white Tuscan columns similar to those outside
the home feature prominently in the entrance hall and continue into the great room, the kitchen, the screened porch, portico and
pavilion.  The living space is the epitome of sophisticated design for people who prefer classic lines but casual living.  With the
traffic pattern of the house, it’s easy to accommodate gatherings for more than 50 people.  The Tuscan columns divide the room
without detracting from its openness. 

 

One Hundred and one Tuscan PolyStone® columns were used on the house, whose exterior is reminiscent of homes seen in
Nantucket, with shaker shingles, Tuscan columns and pristine white trim. The Dream Home’s public spaces, including the
great room, kitchen and dining room, pay homage to the era of grand family homes when large rooms satisfied both the
formal and informal living needs of the homeowners. 

 

The Dream House benefits the Dyslexia Institute of Indiana, and has raised more than $500,000 for the group.  Over 65,000
visitors are expected to tour the home while it is open to the public.
