Hoosiers love their lakes, and this lake offers luxury living at its finest.

Geist Reservoir

Imagine living at Geist Reservoir.

Geist Reservoir is one of the Indianapolis area’s three reservoirs, and the area surrounding the lake is home to some of the most expensive and esteemed residential real estate in Central Indiana. Sprawling to the northeast of Indianapolis, Geist Reservoir stretches across three counties and its surrounding homes have addresses in four cities and towns—Indianapolis, Lawrence, Fishers, and McCordsville.

More than 2,000 properties line the 1,900-acre Geist Lake, and these waterfront homes with direct lake access command prices of more than $1 million. Less expensive homes can be found on the canals of Geist, and it’s even possible to find condos that begin around $200,000 on these outlying waterways. The building boom didn’t begin in Geist until the 1980s, when residential development for the area was approved, so most homes are newer and organized into subdivisions.

Where you live in Geist determines which of the three possible public school districts your children will attend: Hamilton Southeastern Schools, Lawrence Township Schools or Mount Vernon Community Schools. Hamilton Southeastern consistently performs well, as do many schools within Lawrence Township. A variety of private schools serve the area as well.

Restaurants and shops can be found on and around the lake, and everything that Indianapolis and Fishers have to offer is a short drive away. No matter where you live in Geist, you’ll have a bounty of natural beauty and amenities to enjoy!
