Tech Entrepreneur Scott Jones Sells Indiana Mansion for $1.9M
1150 W 116th Street, Carmel, Indiana, United States, 46032
Tech entrepreneur Scott Jones has sold his sprawling 28,000 square foot mansion in Indiana for a steep discount. The property hit the market in August 2017 for $5 million and was reduced a number of times before accepting an offer of $1.9 million. 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 reported 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 wood-panelled great room, an award-winning home theatre and one-of-a-kind mahogany spiral slide. If you recognize the home you’ve likely seen it on television, the property has been featured on programs such as MTV Teen Cribs and more recently on Mega Mansions. Scott reportedly sunk over $20 million into designing and finishing the property over a period of 7 years. Some of the unique features of the 7 bedroom, 14 bathroom manor include a 35-foot tall great room, a 25-foot-long saltwater aquarium, indoor treehouse, indoor basketball court and an award-winning home theatre complete with ticket booth, concession and balconies. The most recent listing of the 12 acre property only showed 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 below.
