A home in Washington Township's Ivy Hills neighborhood.

Washington Township is one of Indianapolis’ nine townships and is known for its mature, established neighborhoods, low crime rate and good public schools. (Although Washington Township includes popular areas Broad Ripple, Butler-Tarkington and Meridian-Kessler, these neighborhoods are served by Indianapolis Public Schools. Check this map, which shows the boundaries for the Metropolitan School District of Washington Township.)

A wide variety of architecture and price points can be found within Washington Township, with the older homes of the aforementioned neighborhoods, as well as homes built in the 1950s-1980s further north. Williams Creek is one standout luxury neighborhood, with traditional and mid-century modern homes reaching upwards of $1 million. Newer construction can be found in the Keystone at the Crossing area, and further west along 86th Street.

Located on Indy’s northside, Washington Township contains some of the city’s best shopping, entertainment and restaurants. There’s plenty of outdoor fun, too. Check out the variety of parks, stroll the popular Monon Trail (some of Washington Township’s most sought-after homes back up to it) and canoe the White River.
