807#1 West Berry Street, 3bd/2ba

Didn’t your Mom teach you to not judge a book by the cover. This is a perfect example. It is not the prettiest house in West Central, but look at the inside. If it had a pretty outside, it would rent for more money. This is a really nice Three Bedroom, Two Bath apartment that occupies the entire First floor of 807 W. Berry St.  You enter the house through the front door into the foyer.  From the foyer you pass through the large french door that leads into the living room. The entire apartment has hardwood floors and nice dark oak woodwork. The living room has a non-functioning fireplace, high ceilings, and a beautiful light fixture. From the living room you pass through a large opening with the original pocket doors into the dining room. The dining room has a built-in china cabinet, great for displaying dishes or collectibles, and a great coat/storage closet. There are several doors going off the dining room, the first door is to one of the two full bathrooms. It is a retro bath brownish tile wainscotting, tub/shower, vanity with sink, and probably the only chocolate brown toilet in West Central.  Another door off the dining room leads to the master bedroom. This bedroom is large with high ceilings, large closet with two clothes rods, a built-in shelves, exposed brick chimney, and a private door/entrance. The final door off the dining room leads to the kitchen. The kitchen is large open room with a large peninsula/work area with tile counter-tops, and an area for a small table, and a separate entrance (great for carrying in groceries). Off the kitchen is the second bedroom with hardwood floors, high ceilings, and a large closet. The other direction off the kitchen is a short hallway w that leads toward the rest of the apartment. This hallway has a pantry/broom closet, a large closet for the third bedroom, and an original built in storage/medicine cabinet just outside the second full bath. This second full bathroom has a white hexagon tile floor, pedestal sink, cool mirror and lights, and neo-angle shower (glass on three sides). Further down the hall is the third bedroom, with hardwood floors, high ceilings and a private entrance. If you have a lot of stuff or just want a large apartment, you could use one of the bedrooms as a home office, this could be the place you are looking for. It is large, lots of historic character, on the first floor, and comes with off street parking, and has a washer/dryer  in the basement.

When you enter the house you come into a small vestibule with a tile floor. You pass through a second door in a small foyer and are faced by the stairway to the second floor, and a large archway leading into the front parlor. The entire apartment is hardwood floor with neat designs in the layout, high ceilings and neat light fixtures. The front parlor has an original non-functioning fireplace, hardwood floors, and lots of light. As you look south you can see thru the next two rooms with large archways creating an open space +/- 30ft. This includes a second parlor with original non-functioning fireplace, a large coat closet and half bath. The third room is a formal dining room with nice wood floors, wall sconces and a neat dining room chandelier, a leaded glass window that creates a pass thru to the kitchen. The kitchen is nice with neat built in shelves, walk in pantry, back stair to the second floor and a rear door to back yard.

As you go up the front stairway to the second floor you arrive in an especially wide hallway with high ceilings and neat light fixtures. The hall runs along the inside wall the full length of the building. Off the hall to the front of the house is the largest of the three bedrooms. It has a large room with a  large archway that opens to a nice sized dressing area or bed chamber. Because it is on the front of the house it has several large windows that face Wayne street, it also has hardwood floors, ceiling fan and neat light fixture.

The second bedroom is nice size with high ceilings, two large windows and hardwood floors. The third bedroom is larger than the second bedroom and smaller than the front bedroom, it also has high ceilings, and it is carpeted.

At the end of the hall there are two nice bathrooms. The first is what we call the “Antique” bathroom. It has the original stained wainscoting, pedestal sink, built in medicine cabinet, claw-foot tub, white hexagon ceramic tile floor and also a fiberglass shower with shower door. Really neat! The “modern bathroom” has a pedestal sink, linen closet, neo-angle shower, washer/dryer hookup, and carpet.

Historic Peters-Heffley House 832#5 West Wayne Street, Studio

This Studio apartment sits atop the Historic Peter-Heffley House at 832 w. Wayne St. in the Old West End Historic District of the West Central Neighborhood. This house is individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

When you enter the building you come into a beautiful foyer with inlayed parquet hardwood floors, oak wainscotting, carved features, and an open stairway. You enter this apartment off the third floor landing. When you enter the apartment, you enter the living area. This is a studio, so it is not a big place. But what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in character. The living room is a squarish room. The entire apartment is carpeted. Off the living room is the bathroom, with a vaniety, medicine cabinet, shower only (no tub), and a skylight. The bedroom area is off the living room. It does not have a door, but is divided off from the living room by a 4ft X 8ft stained glass window. The bedroom area has a closet and a skylight, and is just big enough for a bed. The kitchen is off the living room in the other direction. If you are a gourmet cook, you will think this galley kitchen is too small, but if you rarely cook, but want a functional kitchen with newer cabinets and a skylight, this is the place for you. The icing on the cake is the small balcony that overlooks the Italian Renisance Garden, and a good view of downtown Ft. Wayne.

If you are looking for a big place, this is not the place for you. But if you are one person, looking for a something really unique, and you don’t have a lot of stuff, you may have found the place. The last resident said all his friends were “eating their hearts out” at his neat apartment. We have often said, “We have the places you will tell your grandchildren about someday.”
