This lovely, updated traditional home in Covington Lake Estates is nestled in one of Aboite Township’s highly acclaimed neighborhoods of only 50 homes in a park-like setting surrounding a private fishing lake. Enjoy 1.2 mile walks/bike rides around the neighborhood or beyond to the hardware, grocery, and drug stores, schools, churches, two Starbucks, a YMCA, and more on the 70+ miles of the Aboite/Fort Wayne Trails. The location of this home feeds into the top-rated Southwest Allen County school district.

This custom-designed home was built in 1994 by Alan J. Wise Builders and has been enjoyed and cared for by the original owners for 21 years. The setting of this 6,412 sq/ft home is very private, surrounded by woods on a 1.2 acre partially wooded lot with a stream/waterfall feature spanning the width of the lot. A large circle-drive and pad allow entry to the 3-car garage and provides children with a great play area for various toys and basketball. The exterior of this home is brick & cedar home with Architectural series Pella wood windows.  The custom landscaping was developed by Jim Brubaker and has been meticulously cared for and embellished over the years.

Beautiful Brazilian cherry hardwood floors flow from the foyer throughout the 1st and 2nd floors. The home has both a front and back staircase to the second floor each with custom runners with remain.  Just off the foyer is one of the his and hers home offices which has fantastic custom built-in cabinets and bookcases that conceal office equipment, supplies and filing. The office can be closed off by French doors. The formal dining room is just off the left side of the foyer and comfortably holds a large table that seats 12+. Special features in this room include the gas log masonry fireplace and the beautiful wood and box beam ceiling. Another set of French doors lead from the dining room to a wonderful, private screened porch with a brick floor and amazing views of the woods and landscaping.

The first floor was completely remodeled in 2009 including the extra-large, eat-in kitchen which has custom Brookwood cabinets with Calcutta Vagli marble countertops, a divided extra-large porcelain farm sink with two sets of faucets and a stunning wood and beam ceiling treatment. The huge window above the sink has a window box and lets in plenty of sunshine. The professional grade stainless appliances include a 36” Subzero refrigerator and  separate freezer, 6 burner Electrolux gas range, a second oven, 2 dishwashers and a wine cooler in the adjacent wet bar area. The walnut-stained center island comfortably seats 5 large bar stools and is ideal for entertaining or eat-in kitchen dining. There is also room for a separate kitchen table. The attractive kitchen built-in desk and large walk-in pantry complete this dreamy kitchen. A second staircase off the kitchen with Stark runner, leads to the upper level bedrooms and craft room.

The cozy family room with another beautiful wood and box beam ceiling has an abundance of windows and built-ins, a masonry wood burning fireplace and newly custom-built entertainment center that holds a 70” television. 

The laundry room has plenty of attractive cupboards, a sink and counter space. A gorgeous formal powder room off the foyer and a nice half bathroom off the service hallway, complete this main floor. All rooms on this level have 9’ ceilings.

The 2nd floor has 5 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. The master suite has another lovely painted wood ceiling treatment, a newly remodeled walk-in closet and en-suite with separate glass walk-in shower, soaking tub, make-up vanity area and custom dual vanities and sinks. All bedrooms on this floor are on-trend and many with timeless white subway tile and updated countertops. The upstairs bonus room has a cute built-in bench under the dormer window and is currently being used as a craft room.

The finished lower level has brand new, wood-look low maintenance high-resolution laminate flooring, a recreation room, large area for a pool table, full wet bar with dishwasher and granite countertops, a large exercise/workout room with an abundance of storage, a wine cellar and a full bathroom.

This 3rd level of this home is a partially floored attic with pull-down stairs.

Outdoors, new owners will enjoy the beautiful landscaping, hot tub and storage shed.

The mechanical elements in this home include 2 HVAC units, 2 gas water heaters, a lift station, humidifier, reverse osmosis system, attic fan and water softener.
