Illsley Drive is on the National Register of Historic Places and is an idyllic and charming street, just steps from Foster Park and five minutes from downtown Fort Wayne.  

This renovated home features painted brick exterior, incredible dental trim at the front entry, immaculate landscaping and a curved ‘princess’ staircase.  Its historic features have been lovingly and critically well-preserved, restored, and/or renovated for modern living.

The main floor has a nice flow and perfect for entertaining! It boasts wide baseboards, notable crown molding, arched and finished doorways, solid wood doors, lovely built-ins throughout and original/refinished hardwood floors. The U-shaped kitchen shares space with a large butler’s pantry with ample storage. The mudroom and back entry also serves as a walk-in pantry, with fabulous built-ins. The living room and sunroom span the depth of the home with windows on three walls providing natural light and views of both the charming street and the enclosed backyard. Wall-length sliding glass doors bring the outdoors inside leading you to a tiered slate patio, edged by boxwoods. A fountain, privacy fence, antiqued mirrored garden gate, established trees and professional landscaping make it a true outdoor retreat. All bedrooms feature noteworthy built-ins, large windows, great views, and stunning refinished hardwood floors.  

The first full bathroom upstairs has been recently renovated offering a large tile/glass spa-like shower/tub and appointed with updated features.  The large and elegant master suite also spans the depth of the home and features an ensuite dressing room paradise that has been painstakingly renovated to house custom built-ins for shoes, accessories, clothing, as well as a charming nook.  The renovated master bath is highlighted by a stunning spa-like tiled shower and new tiled floor. A finished 3rd floor featuring wood stairs and hardwood floors is currently used for an in-home office.  With a large, walk-in closet, great natural light and an exposed brick support this space is also perfect for bedroom #4.

The daylight, walk-out lower level houses a family room and fitness area, small work room (the former coal shed!), an enclosed storage room with built-in shelving and the laundry area with the original double-basin porcelain sink.  This home is a true gem!
