About 3003 La Balme Trail, Fort Wayne IN

This spectacular, mature tree-lined property in highly-acclaimed Covington Lakes Estates is nestled along 241 feet of the private fishing (9.9 horsepower motor) Covington Lake in the heart of Aboite Township, SW Allen County, Fort Wayne. CLE is connected to the 100+ mile Aboite/Fort Wayne trail system, easily walkable to many shopping and dining destinations, including the award-winning Southwest Allen County school system. This Roy McNett custom built home has one of the most desirable backyard views you will find in all of Fort Wayne, with this location's natural habitats including an island across the lake where you can watch Blue Herons fly about, and deer paddle by. The back of the home faces east so you can enjoy stunning sunrise views from almost all rooms of this mid-century ranch on a walk-out home. The main floor consists of a vast 45 x 23 great/dining area with a cathedral, beamed ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows with plenty of entertaining area. The breakfast room is off a deck area with a fully finished gazebo/pool house, including bath/changing rooms and stairs leading down to a new limestone patio surrounding a gorgeous in-ground pool and a hot tub. The first-floor main bedroom is privately located on the south side of the home, with more floor-to-ceiling windows of amazing views. Attached to the private suite is a huge bath and closet space and office/den ( or it may be used as a 4th bedroom as the current owners have with another full bath across the hallway.) A lovely staircase with broad steps leads from the inviting central front foyer to the finished lower-level walk-out. This floor includes another expansive set of windows and sliding doors, a gaming area, a recreation room, and a large bar with beautiful woodwork. Head down a private hallway in the back, where you will find two spacious bedrooms and a large jacuzzi bath under a dome sky light with his and her closets. The property also has a pier so you can access the water quickly. There is a heated 3-car attached garage with a separate potting/ hobby or storage room. This rare lifestyle property only comes on the market every 25 years or so. Only two owners since 1967.
