Architectural details abound in this week s Featured Home, from intersecting cathedral ceilings to fanlights to vaulted verandas. The villas at Quarry s Edge are warm, welcoming and filled with wonderful surprises. Once you see them, you ll want to make yourself to home!
When you walk up the curved concrete walkway to the covered porch, framed in wood-grain vinyl and natural stone, you re not certain what awaits you beyond the front door of 6112 Quarry's Edge Lane in Sylvania Township. As you step into the ceramic tile foyer, you are greeted with wondrous architectural details such as soaring, intersecting cathedral ceilings, punctuated by fanlights and 9-foot walls. The floor plan utilizes every inch of its almost 1,700 square feet to optimum efficiency and traffic flow. Everything is very convenient, yet the feeling is of elegant space.
To the right of the foyer, Colonist doors open onto the vaulted veranda room, wrapped in fully insulated windows with screens. A lovely area to use for your morning coffee or for a friendly game of bridge. To the left of the foyer is the den or sitting room or guest room you decide with a vaulted ceiling and round-top window. French doors open to the dining room, adding to the openness of the floor plan. Having both the veranda room and the sitting room off the central living area offers privacy and serenity.
At one end of the great room, a tall window topped with a rounded window gives a grand air to the room, while the wall angling away from the window holds a fireplace, with gas logs enclosed with glass and brass doors and topped with a recessed display area. At the other side of the great room is the formal dining area with its cathedral ceiling that intersects the eat-in kitchen s vaulted ceiling.
A raised snack bar separates the kitchen from the formal area and provides terrific entertaining options. It s also good for a quick lunch or breakfast with the paper. A double sink with Delta faucet is on the other side. Paneled mahogany kitchen cabinets are hung midway up the tall wall. There is plenty of Corian Solid Surface counter space to whip up anything from a snack to a seven-course dinner. General Electric kitchen appliances dishwasher, Spectra oven/range, and refrigerator/freezer with icemaker and water fountain In-Sinkarator garbage disposal, and a large, convenient pantry make this kitchen efficient for the cook.
Just past the pantry is the utility room that also holds a storage closet with sliding doors to stow your cleaning aids. Cabinets that match those in the kitchen hang above the washer and dryer. From here, you enter the over-sized garage that has additional storage space to the rear and in a lighted, dry attic above with pull-down stairs for access.
A short hall from the dining room leads past the huge guest bathroom, with intersecting vaulted ceilings and linen closet, to a large bedroom that has a cathedral ceiling and double closet with six-panel embossed bi-fold doors.
Off the living room at the end of a very short hallway is a guest closet. To the right is the master suite with vaulted ceiling and fanlight in the bedroom, and a long expanse of mirrored vanity with two sinks and a knee-hole for a make-up area. Beyond the vanity is a very spacious walk-in closet and dressing room. The ample walk-in shower and water closet are in a room of their own with pocket doors.
There are so many details that come with this villa home that make it so uniquely elegant and livable that you ll see yourselves enjoying it as your new home. It s all about a special lifestyle that also includes full use of the clubhouse complex.
