Some will remember it as Fort Wayne’s iconic “Thirsty Camel” but it’s now an incredible home above two commercial units, all wrapped up into one amazing listing. The building, just across from the Grand Wayne Center, is certainly one to see. No detail was overlooked in the 2 year renovation,wrapping up in 2020. The grand entrance to 120 W Washington lies between the two commercial units, which are included in the sale. Double doors open to the original slate staircase ascending between two aged brick walls. If stairs aren’t your thing,a private Schindler elevator (new in 2019)will take you from the 14 car garage to the 10,000 sq ft residence.Once inside, take a moment to take in the open concept of entire 2nd floor,from windows looking out each side of the building to the exposed bricks & beams,its spectacular!The enormous open kitchen has professional grade(and sized)appliances,2 free standing units(refrigerator & freezer each 49 cu feet),2 dishwashers,triple basin stainless sink & 21′ quartz island.Full butler’s pantry is simply a bonus to a kitchen this size.With two sets of 18′ folding doors exiting to a 50×30 patio,the outdoors is easily enjoyed just beyond the open kitchen/living areas allowing the majority of the wall to just disappear when open.This open space flows beautifully, thanks to the aged wood floors throughout, historically tall windows (yet all new in 2018), Dutch Made cabinetry and soaring ceilings.A grand open staircase leads to the upper level(the building’s third floor),offering views of both the city & the home’s living space below,over sized hallways and roomy vestibules.The primary suite,w/ a sitting area & large bathroom, has walk in shower room w/ hot tub,large walk-through closet and a dressing room/closet with an open niche (follow that brick wall all the way up to see the natural light flow in the windows from the roof). All 5 bedrooms all have private bathrooms and large walk in closets.Staircase off the master leads to attic on building’s 4th floor, this massive space has exposed brick,beams,& small port-style windows.This private residence, designed for a family, is also perfect for businesses needing to accommodate guests and/or large parties, as the space is incredible, with large ensuite rooms, and close to so many attractions (restaurants, Grand Wayne, Tin Caps, Embassy, etc).118 W Washington, IES Engineering,has updated twist on a historic space with smart design.122 W Washington is home to New York Dentists.
