About This 1905 Stone House For Sale In Fort Wayne Indiana
This is your opportunity to own the crown jewel of Fort Wayne’s historic West Central Neighborhood – the 10,500 SF Richardsonian-Romanesque building was constructed in 1905 by B. Paul Mossman, it served as the Fort Wayne Museum of Art from 1949 to 1983, and has been home to the Castle Gallery Fine Art for the past 25 years. Exquisite features include a grand staircase of hand-carved oak, inlaid hardwood floors, stained glass windows, pocket doors, rich hardwoods throughout, Tiffany fireplaces, turrets, parapets, arches and three stories of stunning porches.
Exterior wooden windows have been restored and the ceramic tile roof has been preserved. Electrical, plumbing and radiator heat systems have been completely upgraded. A hidden, third-floor staircase has been rebuilt with an assemblage of historic iron railing and posts. The top floor exposes massive oak beams, connected by hand-wrought ironwork. Its rooftop deck is nestled in the sprawling limbs of a 300-year-old Cottonwood tree.
The fenced, backyard garden has stone walkways, a Koi pond, and a Wisteria-covered Pergola. It wraps around a heated and air conditioned four-car garage built of brick and stone, which has its own kitchen, bar and bathroom. The grandeur of this property is unparalleled in elegance, entertaining, and comfortable living.
