There are houses, and there are homes. There are luxuries you expect to pay extra for, and there s 2344 Homestead with features most builders call options. Located in River s Edge in Perrysburg, this is a slice of the good life.
River s Edge is a development by Ridge Stone Builders, one of the area s premier developers. Bisected by walking trails and dotted with ponds, it s a place with a resort-like feel. Community activities abound, from wine tastings to holiday parties. You ll have time for them, too, since the yard work and snow removal are handled for you!
A clubhouse opens this month, and a pool debuts this spring. The new high school and Otterbein nursing home are down the road, making this the ideal community for the sandwich generation. Levis Commons and HarborTown Place offer shopping, dining and entertainment. You are also close to the expressway, and less than 25 minutes from everything.
What more could you want? How about a quality home?
As you walk up the walkway to 2344 Homestead, the luxuries become apparent. A long, covered porch promises relaxing evenings. While the gray stone and vinyl fa ade reflect the charm of a New England cottage.
Inside you ll find a host of standard items that are high on most buyers lists, like Pella windows, Owens Corning products, ThermaTru doors, Corian counters and a Tappan furnace.
The foyer glows with hardwood floors, and is topped by a balcony. To the right, behind glass French doors, is an office with a tray ceiling and mullioned windows. With its closet and shared full bath, this room would also make a delightful guest retreat.
The bathroom features a step-in shower and a granite-topped vanity. A back hall leads to a two-car garage and a laundry room with a utility sink (another unexpected standard).
From the foyer, you enter the great room with its vaulted ceiling and gas fireplace. Adorned with a white wood mantle, this fireplace is a major focal point. Fortunately, on winter evenings, you won t have to choose between gazing at the flames or your favorite program. A niche above the fireplace houses your TV.
To the right, framed by square pillars, is the upscale Merillat kitchen. All appliances are included and consist of a refrigerator, microwave, stove and dishwasher. White beveled cabinets with crown molding add elegance, while oatmeal-toned Corian counters provide functionality. Pendant lights illuminate the breakfast bar, which can do double-duty as a serving buffet for the adjoining dinette.
A sliding door leads to another luxury: a screened porch and attached patio. What a perfect respite on a summer evening!
Off the great room is the master suite. A tray ceiling emphasizes the height of the bedroom, and the bath features a double vanity, jetted tub, glass block window and step-in shower. A walk-in closet accommodates your wardrobe.
A stairway off the foyer leads to the upstairs and a balcony overlooking the great room. At the top is an unfinished bonus room. Use it as a walk-in attic, or convert it into a media room, bedroom, study or playroom. Let your imagination run wild! There is also a finished bedroom on this level, plus a hall bath and linen closet.
All in all, Ridge Stone s thirty years of dedication to excellence and their philosophy that the little things make the big difference can certainly be seen in this new home. So, should you prefer, you can build your own slice of heaven, starting as low as $179,000.
