WELCOME TO THE HISTORIC HENRY BEADELL HOME Here's an outstanding opportunity to own the stately Beadell Home. This residence totals 4, 651 sq. ft. and has been lovingly restored to retain all of its original charm while also incorporating sensitive updates that offer modern amenities. The breathtaking Queen Anne/Free Classic style residence and large brick carriage house (designed to imitate an Old-English pub) sit on the largest lot in this historically-significant neighborhood, encompassing 0.76 acres of beautifully-wooded property. Designed by famed Fort Wayne architect John M.E. Reidel and completed in 1903 for prominent entrepreneur Henry Beadell and his wife, Alice, this gem is the centerpiece of the Williams Woodland Park urban neighborhood and is just five minutes from Fort Wayne's thriving cultural downtown. A native of London, England, Beadell operated a local department store and was also active with the Lincoln National Life Insurance Co., People's Trust and Savings Co., Lincoln National Bank, and Wayne Pump Company, among others. As you approach the home, a gracious wrap-around porch, just made for relaxing and entertaining, awaits you. Enter through the vestibule's pair of leaded glass doors, and you're greeted by a spacious foyer and impressive 11-foot ceilings. To the right, a stately Library with original wood-burning fireplace creates an ideal retreat from the world. To the left, the large Family Room boasts another incredible fireplace and several cozy seating areas that make it so warm and inviting. Beyond, a grand Dining Room includes a unique private bar and a windowed wall overlooking the deep, wooded lawn. Just off this, a fully-updated Kitchen features high-end materials and appliances, floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, and luxurious marble countertops with marble subway tile backsplash. All rooms on this level flow and function beautifully for everyday life as well as for entertaining. Ascend the elegant oak staircase, and the Master Suite of your dreams awaits. With approximate 650 sq. ft. of luxurious living, the warm and inviting bedroom includes an original wood-burning fireplace (converted to gas log), Birdseye Maple trim and White Oak floors. The adjoining Master Bath is more like a glamorous spa, with a 50-sq.-ft. marble shower, claw-foot soaking tub, double vanity sinks and a chic dressing room. Three bedrooms make up the rest of the second floor, including 1 with a private full bath and 2 that share a Jack & Jill 1/2 bath.
