This incredible historic home has a great location, beautiful yard, wonderful updates and a layout that meets the needs of today’s lifestyle. The overall feeling of this 1900’s home is open, spacious and bright (which is a quality not always found in historic homes). The white stucco Craftsman-style home has a green tile roof and a wonderful exterior presentation.

Located in Fort Wayne’s West Central Neighborhood, this gem is just minutes from the ever-changing & developing skyline of our vibrant downtown.  Additionally, it is only minutes from Fort Wayne’s premier outdoor, upscale shopping center, restaurants and so much more.  The Fort Wayne Trails and Swinney Park are easily accessed just across the street.

The covered front entry opens to the foyer and once inside, it takes some time to take in the features and details that make this home so spectacular. Narrow planked hardwood floors grace this home, adding a feeling that is simply impossible to recreate in a new home. The walls are thick, the moulding substantial, the dentil molding precise, the fixtures are noteworthy and the leaded glass throughout is fantastic. The foyer opens to the living room, dining room and to the grand main staircase.  Built-in bookshelves, a breathtaking fireplace with a tile surround, two sets of leaded french doors (opening to the side yard) are just a few of the features in the bright and spacious living room. The dining room opens to the wrap-around four season room. With 3 sets of large, leaded glass french doors, these two rooms, together, make an incredible space for entertaining while all those great windows in the 4 season room keep the space lively and bright.

The upscale kitchen features the home’s reclaimed cabinetry in the large, open concept space featuring the breakfast area, island and arched windows overlooking the gardens and fountain. The kitchen is conveniently located just off the home’s two-car garage. The second staircase, just off the kitchen, leads to the laundry room which is so convenient!  

The home’s side entrance opens to another beautiful foyer. Currently used as an additional office, this foyer then opens to the home’s library with built in bookcases and stained glass windows under the dramatically arched ceiling with stamped plaster designs.  This library has an adjoining piano room and sitting area. The solid wood doors and the hardware on them are absolutely noteworthy. As a library or a family media room, this space is stunning.

At the top of the foyer’s wide and beautifully trimmed staircase, two french doors lead to a bright vestibule and then to the home’s Chapel.  A bit of history gives additional meaning to this chapel as Archbishop John Francis Noll lived in the home from the mid 1920’s to 1956 and the addition of this this Chapel was a gift built in celebration of his ordination.  With marble columns and floors, an ornately carved ceiling, stained glass windows, intricately carved cherry pews and red velvet kneeling benches, this chapel is breathtaking.

The entire upper level is perfectly presented and defines move-in ready.  The master suite has a great deal of space, the home’s second fireplace and a dressing area with the home’s original built-in cabinetry which is stunning.  This cabinetry features 3 columns of drawers and cabinets on each end (which conceal a small refrigerator and microwave). The master bath has the feel of a new home with a glass walk-in shower, heated floors and a beautiful vanity.  

The hallway sitting area, just off the master, is one of many bonus spaces on the upper level. In addition to bedrooms 2, 3 and 4, this upper level also has the large laundry room and an art studio. Rooms 5 and 6 are currently sitting areas but the potential is there for these to become bedrooms if needed.

Just off the landing is a full staircase to the 3rd story attic which is a cool space with windows, exposed brick and wood plank flooring.  With an incredible amount of space, this area also has a great deal of potential.

The finished, daylight lower level has a family room with a projection TV, the home’s 3rd fireplace, a full bathroom, a fitness room with a whirlpool and sauna, and a workshop area with beautiful exposed brick & concrete floors. The home’s utility room has large windows and two large basin-vintage sinks which are fantastic!  The amount of space in this finished lower level is noteworthy.

Photographer’s note:  it’s hard to imagine that this home was once in a state of disrepair as it is now so beautifully presented. I simply love older homes but also enjoy the bright and open feel of newer homes. This home, however, has both those qualities, making this home a true gem and, perhaps, one of my favorites.
