Description for 5510 Covington Road Fort Wayne, IN 46804
Investors, rehab enthusiasts and DIYers take notice. This home has all the makings of a great restoration. Also a good opportunity to get into a home in this well established area of Fort Wayne, well under existing market prices. The sale price translates into a reward for the buyer with vision and a little know-how. Sold "as is". Home sits in the middle of a nicely wooded lot. Long driveway and good curb appeal. Home is a 1958 custom ranch home. Home was built with entertaining in mind and finishes you can only get in a 1958 custom home, too many to list here. Please come see for yourself. The home needs some work but has a TON OF POTENTIAL! This home offers huge amounts of square footage on an acre of ground with beautiful, majestic mature trees!! Home is priced well below an appraisal that was done in Oct. of 2015 that showed a value of $180,000 at that time. Home was remodeled before it was sold to the current owner. An incredible amount of storage is available in this home - storage built-ins in hallway are really nice plus a walk-in storage closet! Master bath has jetted tub and separate shower it also has his and her vanity. Kitchen has built in china cabinet or display. Built in cutting boards throughout the kitchen. Slotted baking tray storage built-in. Built-in bread drawers. Name it and you probably will find it in this custom ranch home built in 1958 by Elmer Lassus. Current owner has replaced many of the windows in the home in the last seven years and installed a Bosch dishwasher in kitchen and a water heater for the master bath area in 2014 - there are two water heaters in this home. This home is near hospital, shopping, entertainment, I-69. There are two recent home inspection reports on the home sitting on the countertop in the kitchen for Buyers review. Please do not take either report out of the house - if buyer wants a copy for themselves, listing agent can provide if requested.
