The sixteenth tee of Eagles Landing Golf Course is just outside your back door, as is a beautiful, expansive view. This Oregon, Ohio home is filled with country charm and awaiting a new owner.

Twenty years ago, you might have been excused if you thought Oregon, Ohio, was nothing more than refineries, corn fields, the German-American Festival and church-sponsored chicken dinners.

Today, the corn fields and refinery are still there, and every summer, the German-American Festival and the chicken dinners are still going strong. But new home developments are transforming the landscape, and the personality, of this community.

The home at 1632 Grand Bay in Eagles Landing is a prime example of this transformation. The 2,500 square foot home is located on the 16th tee of Eagles Landing Golf Course and is a showplace of country charm.

The brick and vinyl home boasts a stained glass front door with an inviting rose design, as well as transom and sidelights. Inside, the two-story foyer has a unique feature an alcove for a grandfather clock. The floor is hardwood.

Throughout this home, beautiful oak woodwork abounds. To the right of the foyer, through a lovely paneled archway, is a large, comfortable dining room with a large window overlooking the front yard. To the left of the foyer is the master suite, with a large bedroom, including a ceiling fan and a window to the front overlooking the extensive landscaping. His and hers closets and a handicapped accessible bathroom with double vanity and garden tub below a large, glass block window complete the suite.

Directly before the foyer is the great room, a large, breezy room with a vaulted ceiling. A half bath opens off the great room, near the foyer. Sliding doors at the far end of the great room, topped with a transom window, lead to the extensive deck.

The backyard is roomy enough for a swimming pool and kids toys, and offers a wonderful view of the aforementioned 16th tee, as well as a lovely pond. This view is truly a feature of this lovely home, and the wide open spaces offer wonderful breezes through the home on even the hottest of days.

The kitchen is accessible from the great room and the dining room. A gas fireplace is shared by the kitchen and great room. Beautiful woodwork is a hallmark of this home, and it is shown to its best advantage in this lovely country kitchen. The countertops are Formica, with a blue accent strip on the edge. Custom oak cabinetry with crown molding offers plenty of storage space, as does a gorgeous built-in cabinet over the fireplace. Set up your computer at the built-in desk in the kitchen and have a handy place to supervise your kids homework or print out recipes.

The large island offers lots of storage, as well as a convenient snack bar. There is also room in the kitchen for a small dining table.

Just off the kitchen are a first floor laundry room and pantry, as well as access to the full basement.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, a hall bath and a large bonus room or bedroom. The first bedroom boasts large windows overlooking the golf course and a ceiling fan. The second bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and double closet. The bonus room, a long, narrow room above the two-car garage, has two skylights admitting plenty of natural light, as well as a palladium window, ceiling fan, and a built-in bookcase with space for a television. There is also storage space under the eaves, accessible from this room.

This home will be offered at absolute auction Saturday, September 10 at 11 a.m., and will be open for inspection an hour before. An absolute auction means there is no minimum and no reserve, and the home will sell to the highest bidder. Interested parties should bring a check for $7,500.
