When Pam and David Isaac built their 6,400-square-foot home in Kokomo last year, people all over town oohed and ahhed and asked to see the customized creation.
But the Isaacs aren’t the kind of people who show off what they have — unless it’s for a good cause.
So next week, the couple is opening their home to others to raise money for Bridges Outreach, an organization near and dear to their hearts.
“It’s exciting to help Bridges,” David Isaac said. “We want Bridges to receive enough money from them to buy a new van.”
Thursday night, the couple will host a gala complete with hor d’oeuvres, music from Rhum Academy, carriage rides and guided home tours. Then on Nov. 16 and 17 they’ll offer public tours of their home.
It’s really something to see, said Travis Tafflinger, with Bridges Outreach.
“There’s nothing like it in Kokomo,” he said.
The home features heated bathroom floors, a gold-leafed dome, an upper patio with a pool, a lower patio and a room with retractable screens.
The Isaacs created a large, manmade pond in their yard, which sits on 5.5 acres. There are even outdoor lights to make it look like a resort at night.
There’s a pool room with a pool table in their downstairs that’s designed to look like an old English pub.
The house has thick walls to give it a castle-like feel, David Isaac said. And the walls of the house were prepared by an artisan. Some are plain painted, but others are spackled or made to look like stone. One wall even looks like it’s made of cloth — though it isn’t, he said.
The home also has the latest and greatest in technology. It’s a smart home. The Isaacs can open and close the blinds, lock doors or turn on lights and close the garage door from anywhere in the country using their phones.
