Historic Rhinesmith House 827#3 West Wayne Street, Loft 1bd/1ba

This loft apartment is located at 827 W. Wayne Street, in the Historic Rhinesmith House. The Rhinesmith House is located in the Old West End Historic District, also known as West Central, in downtown Fort Wayne, In. The loft occupies half of the third floor of the building  (approx. 1000sf). When you enter the space you are in the living room. There is both a front and back stairway leading up to the apartment. Down the back stairway there is a coin operated laundry on the second floor landing.

The entire apartment is hardwood floors and has a cool garret feel to it. The outside walls are about five feet high and the ceiling follows the roof-line up at an angle and meets the wall on the other side of the loft, which is the brick center wall of the building. It meets the ceiling about 18 feet off the floor. There is a rectangular shaped living room, with a small kitchen with exposed brick wall. One direction off the living room is the bedroom with hardwood floors a south facing window, exposed brick wall and an angled ceiling, and a large closet. The other direction off the living room is a short hall with several doors. The first leads to  a large walk in closet, the second leads into the bathroom. The bathroom has tile floors, exposed brick wall, vanity, toilet and fiberglass shower (no tub). There are two other doorways off the short hall, both have angular doorways and no doors. The first leads into a small bonus room that could be used as a home office, or possibly a small dining room. The second room we call the “meditation” room. It is a very unique round room. It occupies the inside of the round turret on the house. So the room is round, and the ceiling has been removed to expose the inside of the cone roof that sits on top of the turret.

If you are looking for something very unique, this is the place. It is like something you would see in New York or Chicago. Hardwood floors, angular ceiling, exposed brick wall, round room, this is definitely some place you will tell your grandchildren about someday.
