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 vanity, 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 Renaissance 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.”
