Southward Park is beautiful Historic District, located near Foster Park on the near southwest side of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The homes are within a beautiful wooded section of land with tree lined streets, storybook lamp posts, sidewalks and park strips.

With a great corner lot location, this 1950’s home boasts of an attached, two-car garage, great feature not often seen in this Historic District. Updates and consistent maintenance provide yet another reason to be drawn to this home.  

The covered front porch, surrounded by the limestone block and a built in planter, opens to the foyer and staircase. With windows on three sides, the living room provides a large, fresh space with a large fireplace with precise trim, built in mantle lights and tile (notice the full limestone chimney on the exterior).  The living room has the same hard-surface floors that flow throughout the majority of this main level (these floors provide an easy to clean surface with an on-trend look). The dining room can’t be beat, with the original built in cabinetry spanning the length of this great room.  Don’t miss the home’s original blue prints on the dining room table - from the days when blue prints were really blue (pointing to the great history of the home). With an attached breakfast area and a great working peninsula, the kitchen offers a great deal of workspace while preserving the home’s fresh white cabinetry.  The breakfast area flows to the four season room, an incredible space that spans the depth of the home with louvered glass panels and a door to the secondary front porch (on the street side) and traditional windows overlooking the back patio with a french door to the same.  The back deck has adjacent garden areas, all within a fenced private area. The main level offers a bedroom with built in cabinetry, updated colors and a large closet (while this is a bedroom, is currently functions beautifully as an office).  

The upper level has a large cedar closet across the hall from a linen closet. The master suite, spanning the depth of the home, has a great deal of space and a wonderful window nook. Not to miss is the original farmhouse sink in the master bath (such a great look for today yet original to this home). Bedroom #3, another large room, has two built-in dressers and great ceiling details provided by the two large dormers. Bedroom #4 has charmed oak flooring and is adjacent to the master suite.

The partially finished, daylight lower level has the home’s second fireplace (limestone) and a built-in entertainment area (think office or future bar). The utilitarian laundry room is simply ideal, with windows and an unreal amount of work/hanging space! Cabinetry offers a great work surface and the workbench on the other end of this unfinished room would be an ideal project area. Never underestimate the beauty of unfinished space!  

Additional not-to miss features include the security system, established trees and fresh landscaping, the wrap-around sidewalk and fantastic location near Foster Park.
