As its developers like to say, at Waterside Sylvania, you purchase the lifestyle and get the home for free! The stand-alone villas in this active-lifestyle community will eventually come with two clubhouses, a fitness center, an indoor and outdoor pool, tennis courts, jogging trails, fishing on a 30-acre lake, and villa-side docks.

Watermark, Ltd. introduced area residents to its first active-lifestyle community, Waterside in Monclova, in 1999. Today, Waterside Sylvania offers an environment chock full of leisure activities unlike anything available in the Toledo market.

The Windjammer II model at 9635 Captiva Dr. is a fitting example of the quality you can expect when you make one of these free-standing villas your home.

The first thing you notice as you drive past the community s gatehouse is the quiet. This 200-acre property of villa home sites is serenity itself. It belies the exciting amenities to come. When fully developed, residents will enjoy two clubhouses complete with wet bar, catering kitchen, and library; a fitness center; two pools, including one indoors; tennis courts; jogging trails; a 30-acre lake stocked for fishing; villa-side docks; and an on-site Lifestyle Director to coordinate communitywide events. With shopping, dining and golf just minutes away, it s R&R at its finest!

Prefer to curl up at home? Waterside Sylvania offers 16 one-story floor plans, as well as a story and a half, each featuring a minimum of two bedrooms and two baths customizable to suit your desires. Today s Featured Home displays just a few of the available amenities.

Generous landscaping warms the exterior of this red brick/white shingle home outfitted with green shutters and keystone detailing. Step through the door and your eye is drawn to the sunny expanse of living space stretching from the foyer to the sparkling lake outside your back door. Dark wood flooring contrasts beautifully with the pale aqua walls. A mirrored niche with glass shelves begs to hold your precious figurines.

Off the entrance to the left is a den with vaulted ceiling, transom-topped mullioned window and wall-to-wall shelves capped with crown molding a high-end detail that is repeated on the walls throughout the home. Next to the den is a formal dining room lit by a brushed-platinum chandelier. (In some models, a wine room is a surprising option.) To the right of the foyer is a guest retreat, complete with step-in closet and private access to a full bath. Just steps away is a two-car attached garage.

Straight ahead through the foyer is a primary living space with drama to spare! This combination great room, kitchen and dinette can host parties and family gatherings with ease. Guests can mingle at the dark green granite breakfast bar, cozy up to the white-pillared gas fireplace or spill over into the adjoining sunroom or poured-concrete patio. (Covered or screened porches and waterside decks are other pleasant options.) The living room s coffered ceiling, inset with Venetian plaster, is elegance itself; while in the kitchen, granite countertops, dark cabinetry and stainless appliances abound. A limestone backsplash lines the kitchen walls, and brushed platinum hardware adds a touch of glamour. Ceramic flooring links this space with the dinette, a butler s pantry and a handy laundry center.

Off the living room is the sweetest of master suites featuring a light-filled bedroom, spa-like bath and mammoth walk-in closet. The villa s computerized security system can be accessed here; one of two control panels is conveniently located just inside the door. There is ample space for a sitting area in the master s sizeable bedroom, but you ll probably prefer lounging in the soaking tub in the master bath. You say you re a shower person? A step-in shower holds pride of place near the water closet. His-and-her sinks are another luxury feature.

One tour and it s clear: Watermark has covered every detail, from year-round outdoor maintenance to a 10-Year Gold Star Warranty. And as an EPA-designated ENERGY STAR Partner Builder, you know your home will meet or exceed the latest energy standards.
