Property Description

Welcome to the home of Emmy Award winning and legendary sportscaster, Chris Schenkel, going to Auction on Saturday, August 27, 2022 at 1:00 PM. The four lot, 200-foot Tippecanoe Lakefront property is the only home with a Tippecanoe River tributary running through it. This unique lake home has not been available for over 51 years. The property includes a five bedroom home and a one bedroom detached apartment above the three-car garage. The apartment is named the “Byron Nelson Suite”. Schenkel built this suite for the occasions when Byron would spend time at the lake playing golf at the Tippecanoe Lake Country Club. Born and raised in Bippus, Indiana, Chris Schenkel’s early career led him to New York City, where he met and married model and dancer Francesca Paige Delfino. After having three children in the city, Schenkel decided New York wasn’t the ideal place to raise their children, so he moved the family back home again to Indiana. Tippecanoe Lake became the calm and peaceful Hoosier lifestyle needed. The tranquility of the lake also helped cement the legend’s Hoosier “gentle-man personality”. Schenkel’s career in sports broadcasting spanned over 50 years with such accolades as a member of 18 Hall of Fames, including the Pro Football Hall of Fame, College Football Hall of fame and the Professional Bowler’s Hall of Fame. Schenkel’s broadcasts around the world included events such as the Indianapolis 500, Kentucky Derby, The Masters, numerous Summer and Winter Olympics, the NFL’s “Greatest Game Ever Played”, the College Football “Game of the Century” and many more. Schenkel was a pioneer in many of the sports television technologies still used today. His notoriety also led him to playing himself in many movies such as “Kingpin”, “Greedy” and “International Velvet”. You could be fortunate to own this wonderful estate where such greats like Byron Nelson, Wayne Gretzky, Muhammad Ali, Hank Aaron, A.J. Foyt, Archie Griffin, Larry Bird, Mark Spitz, Dick Weber, Jessie Owens, Johnny Weissmuller, Bruce Jenner, Carol Shelby and many more enjoyed the one-of-a-kind lake views. It’s your turn to carry on this wonderful legacy. Bid Live In-Person or Online! Open House: Thursday, August 18th 5:30-7pm
