Located in the heart of Fort Wayne’s southwest side in Aboite Township, this spectacular 3-acre estate is nestled within a neighborhood called Covington Lake Estates,  often referred to by locals as “my favorite neighborhood in Fort Wayne”. CLE is comprised of only 50 large home sites, with hundreds of mature trees, beautifully landscaped properties, encircling a small lake and island. There is only one entrance/exit point so little non-resident,  vehicle traffic here.  The total of 4 streets (and a cul de sac) make up a 1.2 mile loop providing a wonderful walking route for families and their dogs. CLE is in the middle of the 20-mile  Aboite Trail network which is connected to a total of over 80 miles of bicycle and pedestrian trails throughout the Fort Wayne Trails system.  From this home you can easily walk, run,  bike etc.  to the highly rated Southwest Allen County Schools, Starbucks, groceries, hardware and drug stores, parks, restaurants, and more.

New in 2011, the exterior walls are the only part of this home that remain after the 2011-2012 renovation. The first home built in the coveted Covington Lake Estates neighborhood, this spacious ranch home is on a 3 acre lot that includes a winding circular drive, stunning gardens, lighted paths, pond and waterfall, stream, gazebo and a lake that wraps around the back and side of this stunning property (over 300 ft. of lake frontage). Ove W. Jorgensen, the original developer, picked the premiere lot and the home’s historic charm is intact.

Named “Heron’s Landing” in honor of the beautiful blue herons who grace the lake, this estate has a grand slate sidewalk through the professionally landscaped & maintained beds with lush plants and dramatic hardscapes. The front entry, with substantial pillars and beams, provides a low-step entry, through a stunning wood front door, to the large foyer. The central part of the home has an open concept plan that includes the foyer, dining room, living room, family room and breakfast area. These rooms all have cathedral ceilings with exceptional detail, hardwood floors and spectacular views of the water. Three gas fireplaces are found in this central area (living room, family room and kitchen).  

The kitchen’s Blue Bahia granite island is an incredible accent in this light and elegant professional kitchen featuring Sub-zero, Wolfe, Bosch and Miele appliances. The breakfast area is under a circular, vaulted ceiling with a stunning antique chandelier with beautiful lake views. A spacious, working pantry is just beyond the storage vestibule and the adjacent spacious laundry room. The office, featuring the home’s original wall-mount china cabinet, has custom cabinetry, a deep window seat and double french doors. 

The home’s south wing features a stately custom paneled study with a wall of windows overlooking the lake, cathedral ceilings, stunning trim work, and a granite bar with a Sub-Zero wine cooler and Sub-Zero refrigerator. The master suite has elegant his-and-her closets that both have built-in dressers and an incredible amount of space. The lake and garden views from the master suite are calming. The bathroom features heated marble tile floors, large marble & glass shower, soaking tub and more great views. Just off the master, the only stairs go to a finished easy-to-access storage area with built in cabinetry and a window.

The home’s former entry, the piano room with slate floors, marks the start of the home’s north wing that includes four bedrooms (all with water views), four full baths, a powder room, exercise room (cathedral ceilings, 3 walls of windows, wet bar) and a pull down attic in the hallway.

The expansive bluestone patio is home to the Lynx outdoor kitchen, stone fire pit (gas lighter), built in hot tub and a great deal of space that overlooks the lake.  The screened gazebo is adjacent to the boat dock (perfect for kayaking and fishing).

Additional not-to miss features include the control 4 audio/visual sound system throughout the home, sprinkler system throughout the property, all new security system, a garden storage building, large heated workshop off the oversized three car garage, and all the mechanicals that were done in 2011-2012 (all new high efficiency furnace/air conditioners, HVAC ductwork, new electrical, plumbing/sewer and new high efficiency Andersen windows). The classic cedar roof has been re-conditioned with a ten-year warranty. All countertops are quartz, marble or granite and all have beautiful fixtures. Window boxes grace the exterior.

The outstanding location and extreme privacy (of both this neighborhood and the lot) make this home truly a rare find within Fort Wayne.
