Beautiful Italian Romanesque Revival – Built by Italian craftsmen over a 2 year period during the Depression, this home is one of the most unique homes in North Manchester and Indiana. Magnificent brick 2 story w/approximately 2700 sq. ft. plus full basement. Enter this Italian villa through a rare arched European style front castle door into a dramatic two-story monastery-type foyer with imported tile floors, featuring a massive wrought iron banister, chandelier, wall of arched windows and wooden staircase. Enjoy Venetian plaster walls and custom crown moldings and a wood-burning fireplace in the extra large step-down living room and adjacent dining room. Fall in love with the Arts Crafts breakfast nook and built-in Butler’s pantry. The kitchen addition retains the home’s original charm while updating it to a Chef’s dream kitchen complete with professional quality GE Monogram gas range and oven and a GE Advantium convection oven/microwave. Black honed granite countertops and custom cabinetry unite the old with the new. You will love the original and extra large vintage green porcelain sink! The breakfast bar and small gas fireplace makes it perfect for eating in or entertaining. The 2 car detached garage would make a great wood shop or artists studio and a large unfinished basement adds tons of storage. More original charms include Palladian style wood windows, rare gum wood interior doors, art deco baths, original light fixtures, laundry chute, large bedrooms with walk-in closets, plus many other fine features. House is close to Manchester University and just a short walk from downtown and 35 miles from Fort Wayne! Do not miss this opportunity to own this romantic Italian villa.
