Craftsman Village, A Front Porch Neighborhood

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Friends & Neighbors Real Estate RB14036506

Craftsman Village will be a community of traditional built houses in a neighborhood of front porch homes.  Craftsman Village is located in Kosciusko County (low property taxes) but in Nappanee and Wa-Nee School Disctrict. Friends & Neighbors Real Estate is the exclusive marketing agents for this new neighborhood!

Common sites will be children riding bicycles, adults out for an evening walk, side by side on the extra wide sidewalks, and conversations happening between neighbors swinging or sitting out on their front porch.


Phase one of Craftsman Village includes eight homes, three of which are completed and sold. Every home to be built will be in the craftsman style, with an 8 ft deep front porch and traditional craftsman elements. There is an active Architectural Committee with Covenants and Restrictions.


Friends & Neighbors Real Estate is proud to represent Craftsman Village and local builder Troy Hall. Troy has 32 years building history and will begin the first spec home shortly!

Love the idea of the front porch.  Seems in the 60's and 70's everybody wanted to be in a private backyard.  Glad to see the front porch is making a comeback Evelyn Johnston

I love craftsman style homes. (Though I wish they came with side entry garages.) Have fun selling!

Hi Evelyn, So glad to see you again and the rest of the group. Maybe we will see each other at the hotel or the show. I didn't get to catch up enough. Did you get a better room?
