Scott Jones Palatial 28,000 Sq. Ft. Indiana Mansion Reduced to $2.5M
1150 W 116th Street, Carmel, Indiana, United States, 46032
Tech entrepreneur Scott Jones is ready to bid farewell to his palatial 28,000 square foot Carmel, Indiana manor and hopefully a nearly $1,000,000 price reduction will entice an offer. The massive stone manor has been on the market since August 2017 for as much as $4,995,000. It was reduced several times and has just come back on the market for $2,585,000. Aether Estate Sales Co. held a massive estate sale at the property in September 2017 which was touted at the time as being, “The best estate sale ever conducted – not only in the state of Indiana, but the entire country.” Jones made his fortune inventing voicemail and later became the founder of the now defunct ChaCha search engine. CBS4Indy reports that he now resides in Hawaii which prompted him to offload the sprawling estate. The original section of the home was built c.1938 and was later expanded to the current 28,000 square foot footprint to include world-class amenities such as the towering great room, award-winning home theatre, and one-of-a-kind mahogany spiral slide. If you recognize the home you’ve likely seen it on TV, the estate has been featured on countless programs such as MTV Teen Cribs and more recently on Mega Mansions. Scott reportedly sunk over $20,000,000 into designing and construction the property over a period of 7 years. Some of the unique features of the 7 bedroom, 14 bathroom manor include a towering 35-foot tall great room, 25-and foot long saltwater aquarium, indoor treehouse, indoor basketball court and an award-winning home theatre complete with ticket booth, concession, and balconies. The current listing of the 12 acre property only shows exterior imagery, which appears to be somewhat overgrown and unkept in some areas. There also appears to be an unfinished wing adjacent to the motor court. We’ve included a selection of interior photos from previous listings and the estate sale. It’s on the market for $2,585,000 with Encore Sotheby’s International.
