Situated in a quiet woods, a mile or so from shopping, dining, and urban life, is an opulent and unique English Tudor-style home known as Ivy Woods. Designed by nationally known architect Roy McNett, the home has hosted numerous special events and dignitaries, including several Fort Wayne mayors, Governor and U.S. Senator Evan Bayh, and Vice President Dan Quayle. And now, it’s ready to host your most cherished guests and family.

From the built-in library that can accommodate a 2000-volume collection to the California Driftwood stone found throughout the home, from the authentic rec room soda fountain purchased from Willie’s to the exceedingly rare butternut wood paneling in the great room—every detail tells a story.

Host dinner parties from the newly renovated custom-made kitchen. Relax in the updated master suite’s 8-foot shower. Pursue your hobbies at the four-car garage’s 16-foot workstation. And let guests marvel at the hand-carved bannisters, the impressive wooden beams brought in from an 1880s barn, the indoor balcony that overlooks the family room and back yard via picture windows inset into the floor.  

This is your private getaway, your bit of expertly crafted luxury, your Ivy Woods.
