Apartment dwellers definitely make trade-offs. They share walls and hallways with people not in their family, often finding themselves in smaller abodes with no lawn or garden to nurture.
Step inside one of the new apartments in River House, one of Broad Ripple’s newest buildings, and you forget about all of those potential downsides. Instead, all you can think is: What a view.
Perched on the edge of where the White River veers off to the Central Canal and just steps from the heart of Broad Ripple Village, River House apartments have a vantage unlike any other.
The shared fitness center on the second floor overlooks Broad Ripple Village.
Two community rooftop decks let you choose from a river view or a village view for your gathering around the fire pit or an al fresco viewing of the game or a movie on the one of the two outdoor television sets.
Other apartment buildings have community rooms; this 6,000 square foot outdoor expanse with seating and tables constitutes the River House community room, said Nakeya Boyd, the assistant property manager.

While the studio apartments lack a balcony, most of the one- and two-bedroom apartments in the building offer tenants a private space from which to ogle the view. Some of the apartments even have a private rooftop balcony.
Studios range from 425 to 495 square feet and start at $1,050 a month. One bedrooms range from 692 to 815 square feet and start at $1,350 monthly. Two bedrooms start at just over 1,000 square feet and start at $1,800 a month.
The one-bedroom apartments feature an open plan living room/dining room/kitchen with an eating island with a granite counter in the middle. One end of the room has large windows overlooking the vista below. The kitchen also has a small pantry.
A closet in the living area hides the large washer and dryer that come with each apartment.
One-bedroom apartments have an additional closet space separating the bathroom from the bedroom.
Some of the two-bedroom apartments mirror their smaller siblings but with a second bedroom and bathroom on each side of the living room, making it a perfect roommate situation. The building also has a two-bedrooms two-and-a half bathroom option, which at 1,233 square feet is the largest available apartment.
