Unless you specifically have long-reach 105 brakes (they were available) I don't think you can find a fork that will allow full fenders and short reach brakes. There are fenders that have cut-outs in the fork crown area to clear short reach brakes and tight clearances but they aren't real effective.
BTW, Shimano and Tektro both make current model double pivot long-reach brakes and these may work with your current fork and the 700c wheels. I converted an '83 vintage Trek from 27" to 700c and the 105 dp long-reach brakes on it adjusted far enough to line up properly.
