Welcome to Sycamore Reserve

Conveniently located in Castleton on the northside of Indianapolis, Sycamore Reserve is a new full-service independent senior living community dedicated to your comfort and happiness. We provide genuine personal service in a relaxed, yet refined atmosphere. Our 97 spacious suites include stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and California style closets.

Sycamore Reserve is the second independent senior living community we’ve developed. The first, Bartlett Reserve, located in Durham, North Carolina has enjoyed great success and was awarded Senior Advisor’s Best of Senior Living, by its residents and their family members, multiple years in a row.

Location, Location, Location

You’ll appreciate the convenient location, close to I-69, I-465, Community Hospital North, IU Health Hospital Saxony, St. Vincent’s Hospital North, a variety of grocery stores, restaurants, specialty shops and shopping at the largest mall in Indiana: Castleton Square Mall.

You’ll even have access to a chauffeur who provides transportation for residents to medical appointments, meetings and shopping.

Dining Experience

Our state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen in the Wabash Room is open daily from 7am to 7pm. Trained chefs, who know how to balance fresh ingredients with amazing and wonderful flavors, prepare delicious meals made-to-order. From the uniformed servers, who know your name and how you enjoy your coffee, to the crisp linen covered tables, no detail has been overlooked to make your dining experience delightful every time. Dine solo, with fellow residents or from the comfort of your own suite with our carryout services. You can relax and socialize in the Circle City Bistro where you’ll find coffee, pastries and other lighter fare.

Staying Active

As an active and independent senior, at Sycamore Reserve you’ll have plenty to keep you busy. One of the best things about retirement living is having the free time to spend doing the things you love. Now is a great time to explore new interests or reacquaint yourself with favorite hobbies.

Picture yourself waking up at Sycamore Reserve and enjoying fresh-squeezed orange juice from our juice bar and a made-to-order omelet. Then head to the fitness center for a workout or attend a water aerobics class in our heated swimming pool.  Then enjoy BBQ poolside for casual dining after you’ve worked up an appetite.

Throughout the Sycamore Reserve community, you’ll join friends watching movies in the theater, listening to guest lecturers and concerts, playing bridge, poker and board games, attending holiday parties, plus hiking, casino, zoo and museum trips.

As a lifelong Hoosier native, graduate of Cathedral High School, former Butler Bulldog football player and insurance agent for over 50 years, I know the Indianapolis area very well. I’ve looked all over for the BEST independent living community to enjoy my retirement. When I walked into Sycamore Reserve, I immediately felt like I was home. Everyone was so friendly and treated me like I was part of their family. I started coming here just to play cards and everyone remembered my name every time I walked in the door! Since it’s locally owned, I see the owner here just about every day. If you haven’t been to Sycamore Reserve yet, I strongly recommend coming and seeing firsthand how you, too can become a part of OUR family! – Lee G.
