Upscale Home Construction Underway in Ft. Wayne

This magnificent home now being constructed was designed by the renowned architectural firm of Visbeen Architects, Inc. based in Grand Rapids Michigan. The home will be situated on a large homesite in a very desirable area of northern Allen County, which provides for the seclusion of country living with the important benefits of access to natural gas service as well as public sewer. The combination of privacy with public utlities that this site offers is, as you may know, extremely difficult to find anywhere in Allen County, Indiana.

The over-riding requirement was to stay as true to the early New England period home style as possible while taking advantage of the benefits that new technology offers.

An over-sized all masonry fireplace with separate oven will be the central focal point of the interior and exterior as well. The interior decorating will follow the theme with s4s casings and base as well as an all wood stair case with simple balustrade and wide wood plank flooring. The home will have an attached two-car garage and will also have a very large workshop attached for this dedicated hobbyist. The workshop will be heated with [...]
