Waxwing Court is a neighborly cul-de-sac with beautiful homes and sidewalks on both sides. Like the other homes in this part of Bridgewater, this house has a welcoming front porch. In compliment to the front porch/main entrance, the side entry is an incredible feature, adding both charm and function to the home. The covered side entry is just under the bricked archway between two-car and single-car garages. Inside, both garages lead to the mudroom area. With an incredibly smart layout, this mudroom (built-in lockers, tile floor, additional room for a bench and dresser) is a priceless area from which the powder and laundry rooms emerge. Defining spacious, the kitchen is a show-stopper with light painted cabinetry, granite, stainless, a large island with an oversized single basin sink, ultra wide passing areas (between the island and perimeter cabinetry), breakfast area and sliding glass doors to the back deck. Also a large area, the deck is a great extension of the home and leads to the outdoor living area below. The hearth room opens to the kitchen area and features cathedral ceilings, a beautiful fireplace, built-ins and a great deal of natural light. The hand-scraped hardwood floors flow throughout the majority of the main level, including this hearth room, kitchen, foyer and halls.

Getting back to the main entrance of the home, the foyer opens to the dining room (open, yet defined by arched openings and columns) and to the great room (two-story windows and open to the landing above). To the right, the entry to the master’s vestibule repeats the arched opening and opens to the master suite that features a tray ceiling, great water views, and an oversized master bath with a walk in glass/tile shower, soaking tub and dual vanities. The large walk-in closet is a great feature as well.

The upper level is home to bedroom #2 (private full bath, cathedral ceilings), #3 and #4 (currently used as a family room). All rooms have spacious walk-in closets the bathrooms are up to date.  

The daylight, finished lower level has oversized windows and a tremendous amount of beautifully finished space. Bedroom #5 has a private vestibule, a large walk-in closet and an attached full bath. The family area opens to the staircase and the billiard area, currently used as an in-home office. Behind double doors is the media room. Not to miss is the future bar area that is plumbed and ready for that addition. While this is a great theater/entertainment room, it would also function beautifully as a fitness area or even as a guest bedroom with a future kitchenette.

The back yard is a true outdoor retreat, with a patio of pavers, built in grill/countertop and a partial wall that provides additional seating for large groups. Adjacent to this area, the space under the deck provides covered storage for boats and water toys for the lake while the oversized natural stone steps that lead to the water’s edge provide a great spot for fishing.

Additional not-to miss features include the double front doors, precise woodwork, crown molding, wainscot, invisible fence, irrigation, and the great location adjacent to the Southwest Allen County Schools (Woodside and Covington Elementary).
