Fairway Living with More than Its Fair Share of Extras


The home at 1718 Grand Bay is offered at $299,900 by Welles Bowen Realty. It will be open Sunday, July 30, from 2 to 4 p.m.


Lush landscaping in the front yard, Eagles Landing golf course in the back yard, and all the accoutrements of a former Parade home in between, including hardwood floors, intricately carved oak woodwork, leaded glass doors, airy living spaces, and Maumee Bay and Lake Erie just a breeze away. Make it yours, while you still can!

It s not often a home with all the quality touches becomes available at a fabulous price. The 1998 Parade Home at 1718 Grand Bay is just such a find. Look what you get for your money!

Tucked away in a quiet upscale neighborhood near Maumee Bay and the Eagles Landing golf course, this brick and vinyl home welcomes guests to enter through lush landscaping and a carpet-like lawn. The planting beds are a gardener s dream, kept thriving with in-ground sprinklers. There s no time to loiter though. Multi-pane, arch-topped windows and a leaded-glass entry draw you inside and you won t be disappointed.

A ten-foot-high foyer is graced with carved oak woodwork and pillars soaring to a step-bordered ceiling. Hardwood floors glide underfoot. Six-panel wood doors are visible at every turn. To the left is a dining room, featuring an arched window and candelabra chandelier. Straight ahead is the great room, with sculptured carpeting and a gas fireplace made marvelous by a can t-be-ignored oak mantel. Large flanking windows display views of the 16th fairway.

To the right of the foyer, through a leaded French door is a parlor/den with access to the master suite. This makes it a perfect sitting room where the lord and mistress of the house can start the day with coffee and a pleasant outlook. The master bedroom beyond is spacious, and offers a deep tray ceiling with ceiling fan. The master bath invites you to linger, either to freshen your make-up at the double sink or luxuriate in the triangular spa tub in the corner. A double shower, private water closet and walk-in closet complete the amenities.

Exiting the master, a hardwood-floored hallway leads back through the foyer to the rest of the house. Past the great room on the right is the well appointed kitchen with eat-in dinette. Oak cabinets line the walls, providing plenty of storage, including a built-in wine rack and glass-fronted display case. A deep breakfast bar separates the dinette from the kitchen and nestles up to the great room. What a perfect place to serve hors d oeuvres and drinks when friends come to call! GE appliances and a double-wide pantry make food prep a breeze.

When you re ready to admire that golf course, step through the sliders from the dinette to a deck made of maintenance-free composite lumber. You ll be so close to the action, you could become friends with the golfers. Prefer to join them? Step into the two-and-a-half car garage. A second smaller power-lift door lets you drive your golf cart onto the course whenever you wish.

But wait, there s more ? like the laundry room with built-in cabinetry and utility sink, and the powder room with delicate pedestal sink. A final turn down another hallway leads to two more bedrooms and a second full bath. A connecting door between this bath and one of the bedrooms turns it into a guest suite. Be prepared though, the tray ceiling, walk-in closet and golf course views make it a retreat your guests will never want to leave.

Underfoot literally is an unimaginably large partially finished basement. Carpeted stairs lead down to a recreation room with space for a pool table, a bar and a passel of partiers. A storage area is located to the left of the stairs, and another space currently doing duty as a sewing room is nestled beneath the risers. Men, don t waste time here. Your fantasy workshop is the last stop on the tour, and well worth the wait. Built-in cabinets, counters and storage units accommodate the most sophisticated power tools. There s even room for an exercise center if you desire (and if you don t mind sharing your kingdom with your wife).

So pack your clubs and prepare to stay. This home wants nothing except your personal touch to make it personally yours!
