Covington Dells is an established Fort Wayne neighborhood in the Aboite Township, offering residents quick and easy access to I69 as well as easy trail access (the Illinois trail connects this neighborhood to miles of trails within the Fort Wayne trail network).  The neighborhood drive winds under a canopy of trees, providing a very peaceful setting.  This home has an exceptionally beautiful 1.2 acre lot with a great mix of grassy areas and woodlands, incredible ground cover, blooming bulbs, wild flowers, cultivated landscape beds and a circular drive.  A babbling creek winds through the ravine, adding to the peaceful nature of the land.  

With a cedar and brick exterior, the home has a great look with a long, welcoming front porch and large windows graced by shutters.  The front entry is exceptional, with a custom screen door and a solid wood dutch door (don’t miss the beautiful brass lock inside).  This door opens to a spacious foyer from which a wide, partial staircase leads to the great room (featuring a square-grid picture window, wood burning fireplace, and an entire wall of built-ins).  The views from this room are just incredible.  This great 1950’s house has a completely remodeled kitchen, offering a large open space for the kitchen and breakfast area.  With windows extending down to the floor, updated lighting, stainless appliances, custom cabinetry and neutral countertops, the look is great.  Hardwood floors flow from the foyer through the halls and to this open kitchen.  Beyond the kitchen is the mudroom with the washer/dryer concealed behind the mirrored doors, and then the two-car garage.  Not to miss is the easy to access attic with a private staircase in the garage.  

A private hallway with built-ins leads to the family room with 2 walls of windows and a door to the large slate patio.  The room’s second door opens to the screened porch with beamed ceilings and the most perfect location to take in the beauty of the creek and the surrounding woods.

The hardwood floors extend through the back hallway (featuring a long bank of built-ins) and into the master bedroom.  This completely renovated master suite offers a great deal of space and a spa-like bathroom behind the home’s original french doors.  The bathroom features a large jetted tub under cathedral ceilings, a walk-in shower, dual vanities, tile floor and french doors that open to the large slate patio.  Bedroom #2 has a built-in dresser and bookshelves while bedroom #3 has the home’s second fireplace.

While most of the great updates are obvious, it’s important to also note the new roof, furnace and air conditioner (2004), new windows in 2006 (while the beautiful picture window in the great room was not replaced, replacement window for that area are on site).
