The space
My wife and I built our dream home we built our home with an adjacent yet separate art studio and opened the Art & Texture Finish Studio in 2006 intending to spend more time with our children as they grew up. As the Village's artist-in-residence, we specialized in residential and commercial decorative wall painting and furniture refinishing. Our studio played host to children's art parties, corporate retreats, and a decade of Village Halloween celebrations. With our children almost grown, we converted the space into an Artist's Studio Retreat and have been Airbnb Superhosts since 2017.

We have guests that annually return and first-timers often remark in our Guest Book that their stay with us was an "experience." Enjoy a spacious 1000sqft open studio space featuring skylights, premium television and large windows overlooking the fountain of Hidden Lake. Private bath w/walk-in shower. Kitchenette w/small fridge and freezer, microwave, and coffee pot. A private, heated garage with door remote adjacent. Our second floor Studio Retreat is accessed by a set of entry stairs.

Find your artist within - our art cabinet is stocked with drawing books, sketch pads, color pencils, chalk, etc. Create your own masterpiece and include it on our Refrigerator Door Display. This is your opportunity to experience the resort lifestyle that our family has grown to appreciate and the Hoosier Hospitality of our Village all simply steps from your Retreat Door.

Beyond experiencing a well appointed and quiet living and work space, spend an afternoon discovering our extensive collection of artwork and books on the architecture of Indianapolis. Board games, puzzles and a wide array art books available for quiet moments. Checkout seasonal events, Airbnb reviews and more with us on FB: StudioRetreat_WestClay

Village of WestClay - www.westclay.com/village_of_west_clay.aspx

The Village of WestClay embodies the principles of “New Urbanism”, also known as “Traditional Neighborhood Developments (TND)”. These new communities generally share certain characteristics including a mix of use and housing types, an interconnected street network, a town center, formal civic spaces, and a pedestrian –oriented design with pocket parks.

Set on 719 acres, the neighborhoods of The Village of WestClay reflect a variety of lifestyles. The Village offers homes in many different sizes, styles and prices, yet unified by the complementary traditional exterior architecture. Framing the neighborhoods are 171 acres of open space providing places for reflection and recreation. Upon entering The Village, visitors are impressed with the historical accuracy of the architecture. The Village of WestClay features exterior architectural styles typically found in Indiana at the turn of the last century. Several traditional styles (Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate and Gothic Revival) are predominate in the Village Center. Later Victorian and other traditional residential styles (Colonial, Classic, Tudor and Gothic) may be found in the Estate area. Even though these homes have traditional exteriors, they have the most up-to-date floor plans and amenities.

My wife and I built our dream home in an architecturally inspired, resort style neighborhood in Carmel, Indiana. Intent on wanting to spend more time watching our children grow up, we built our house with an adjacent yet separate art studio. We opened the Art & Texture Finish Studio, I as the village artist-in-residence, specializing in residential and commercial decorative wall painting and furniture refinishing. Our studio played host to children's art parties, corporate retreats and annual Village Halloween celebrations. After years working in the estate homes within the Village and with our children almost grown, we recently converted the space into an Artist's Studio Retreat for guests to enjoy.

Our family has always enjoyed staying at Airbnbs when traveling in the US and abroad. We have created our Artist's Studio Retreat to provide a home for our art pieces from travels around the world. There is also a collection of books on Indianapolis Architecture and an art cabinet filled with supplies to create your own masterpiece. Beyond a well-appointed and unique living/work space, we have found that Airbnb offers an opportunity to genuinely live "like the natives." Our sincere hope is that our guests take full advantage of the world class amenities that the Village and its 600 acres of parks, recreational facilities and shopping/restaurants offered simply within steps of your front door. This is your opportunity to enjoy the resort lifestyle that our family has grown to appreciate over the years.
