THE KING’S CASTLE
Many of you probably know Stephen King as the owner of the King’s Image men’s store which has been in the Castleton area for many years providing custom men’s clothing.
King, who has an immense love of art, built a unique home located near 161st and Gray Road 28 years ago, which at the time King claims was the hinterland of north Carmel.
According to King, when he designed and built the house there was little development around his property. Now a development with million-dollar homes sits just to the north of his property.
Moreover, there certainly were few, if any, homes with such a modern design in the Carmel area to look to for inspiration and design ideas. King toured a home in Florida and got some of the design ideas he incorporated into this home. Designed as a work of art itself, the home over the years has become for King and Melonee Merann, his wife who is an interior designer, their own personal Museum of Modern Art.
The design is not the only thing unique about this house. Amazingly, this house provides a level of privacy not found in many homes in Carmel today. The home sits on 4 acres of land and has a 1/8 of a mile private drive directly off Gray Road.
As you can see from the photos, the design is open and filled with light. King’s design at the time the home was built may have been a bit unconventional, but now it’s just spectacular.
In addition to the acreage and privacy, the home is also large enough for a family with its nearly 6,000 sq. feet and a car collector’s dream with a 6-car attached garage.
King intends to place the home on the market in the very near future with a close friend as their agent. A unique property like this does not hit the market in Carmel very often.
