Bridgewater is great neighborhood in Fort Wayne’s Aboite Township, adjacent to the associated SAC's lower school and middle school.  Children and adults love the sidewalks that are found throughout Bridgewater, providing connections to the Aboite Trail on West Hamilton Road (with connections coming soon on this trail network).  

Galapagos is a friendly street with well-kept homes, easily reached off the Illinois Road neighborhood entrance.  With a welcoming front porch, this craftsman style home is beautifully presented in a move-in ready fashion.  Inside, the hardwood floors made an incredible statement with just one catch - the floors are actually hand-scraped vinyl planks, providing exceptional durability that surpasses real wood.  Beautiful to the eye and comfortable to the feet, the floors are a great feature that flows throughout the entry, dining, living area and laundry room.   The great room, under cathedral ceilings, has a great wall of windows (2 stories), a fireplace of stacked stone and a great deal of space for gathering.  Opening to the kitchen (via a gently arched and well-trimmed pass through) provides a nice open feel.  The breakfast and kitchen areas, with tile floors, solid countertops and fresh cabinetry is a beautiful space with stainless appliances and a large, walk-in pantry.  Sliding glass doors open to the back patio of stamped concrete that features an eating/grilling area and a free-standing, wood burning fireplace and a large back yard with a playscape.  The main level master suite features trey ceilings, a beautiful bathroom and a spacious walk-in closet with additional attic storage available.  The main level laundry room/mudroom (with cubbies) is just off the 3 car garage.

The staircase, open to the great room, leads to bedroom 2, 3 and 4 (with a walk-in closet) that are all well placed off the upper hallway.  An enormous walk-in linen closet is a great supplement to the already substantially sized closets and the full bathroom completes this upper level.

The daylight, finished lower level offers an in-home office area with the “hardwood” vinyl floors and an adjacent half bath, a family area, clean storage/utility room and a large, open playroom that could also function beautifully as a billiard area or exercise room.  The bonus room, serving as a guest area, has a nice murphy bed and a large walk-in closet.

Additional not-to miss features include the plantation blinds, Grabill Cabinetry, craftsman style interior doors, precise trim work and wainscot, upgraded fixtures, security system, new trees and tidy landscaping.
