Cambridge, A Great Lakeside Neighborhood in Geist

108One of my favorite neighborhoods in Geist is Cambridge.  A wonderful community of gorgeous custom homes many with water or wooded views!   The waterfront homes mainly have their own private docks in their backyard and some of the homes off the water have deeded docks. Homeowners off the water sometimes have golf carts for an easy trip down to their boat!   As an avid boater and Real Estate professional I always recommend Cambridge as a great neighborhood to experience the Geist vacation lifestyle right here in Central Indiana!  Currently there are 11 homes on the market ranging from 1.645 million down to $380,000.

Which Neighborhood Should I Buy a Home in if I want to live on or near Geist Reservoir?

As a Geist and Fishers expert Realtor and an avid boater on Geist,  I have many people ask the question-Which Neighborhood Should I Buy a

 

Home in if I want to live on or near Geist Reservoir?   Typically I begin by asking their needs and what type of lifestyle do they want to live.   Here is a quick chart of the neighborhoods  pros/cons-

 

 

Masthead-  The original Geist Reservoir neighborhood.  Older, some homes on market may need updating, but lots are very mature many in the woods, you can get a home starting in the 200’s to the upper millions!   There are many streets since it borders a significant portion of Geist.

 

 

Windjammer- across the street from water but very nice size yards and a quaint well laid out neighborhood with custom homes from 300k and up.

Sail Place- newer updated maintanence free ranches many with deeded docks and several on the water.  If you do not want to take care of your yard and are retired and this is a second home then this is a great option.

Anchorage- Beautiful well manicured yards, high HOA, gated, beautiful waterfront lots, and many homes have deeded dock.  Top rated Fishers schools!

Breakwater- Beautiful million dollar plus gated community with beautiful large lots

Bridgewater-  If you ask me this is the best location on Geist.  Many homes on the water, walk to Scotty’s Lakehouse(great burgers), Bella Vita, Great waterfront dining, the marina, and homes off water many have Docks. Top Rated HSE(Fishers) schools!

Cambridge- Beautiful neighborhood slightly newer then Masthead, rolling hills, waterviews, two coves right in neighborhood making for a lot of waterviews, HSE schools, a lot of homes for sale at all times, 20 homes currently!

Admirals Bay, Sound, Cove, Pointe- Huge neighborhoods bordering Geist,  you can get more for your money in these neighborhoods since the school system is Lawrence Twp.  There is a good private school nearby.

Feather Cove- another Lawrence Twp School neighborhood bordering Geist, very nice homes several on water!

Cambridge, Living the Geist Good Life Waterfront

Cambridge is a premier Geist Area neighborhood along Geist Reservoir.  The neighborhood ranges greatly in price from the low 300’s for fixer uppers to the multi-millions for waterfront mansions upwards of over 10,000 sq.ft.   There are three coves in Cambridge which provides a lot of great waterfront lots.  The most infamous cove is cocktail cove, which is where boats, especially on weekends, congregate and tie up to enjoy calm waters, swiming, and enjoying the boating life.   The entire neighborhood is custom and you can get a home on the water, a wooded lot, or have a deeded boat dock.   This is what Geist living is all about.   There have been several foreclosures and short sales in here, where I have seen past 900k-1 mil homes go for in the 600’s, and I just represented a client who was buying a home off a couple getting divorced and got them to come down to 350k from 400k. 

 There seems to be a big turnover in the neighborhood at currently there are 20 homes on the market(from$329,900-3.74 million), 16 closed in 2011(from $330,000-1.2million), and two homes under contract.  With a big inventory, it means, big opportunity for buyers.  If you are considering selling 16 closed so far this year is a great number too, call me at 317-814-5530 for a free quote on the value of your home.
