Our Featured Home Of The Week

The Stone Gate Villa model home at 9876 Connor Lake Circle in Perrysburg, and the Quarry s Edge model at 6139 Quarry s Edge Lane, off Centennial Road in Sylvania, feel like they are part of intimate villages. Burbling fountains, colorful landscaping and ample green space make it clear these aren t just beautiful places to own, but a beautiful way to live.

In these condominium communities, a lively social life if you want it is there for the asking. An expansive clubhouse in each community provides all the amenities for entertaining, including a snack bar, kitchenette with cherry cabinets, a gas fireplace and access to the inviting pool and patio. Cathedral ceilings, paddle fans and French doors make this adult play space stylish too. Want to kick back with your neighbors? Check out the monthly activities, such as wine tastings, barbeques, and holiday festivities. There is also a fully-equipped exercise room for working off those party calories!

As for the homes themselves, each is arranged in an award-winning pinwheel design that keeps your home totally private. For convenience, every villa is also a ranch, so there are no stairs to navigate. A two-car garage keeps you dry and protected summer or winter.

Outside your door, you can relax on a private patio bordered by a low fence, or wander the neighborhood beneath the glow of carriage post lights marking each front lawn. You ll have plenty of time for those walks too, since a professional team handles all outdoor maintenance, including shoveling the snow and ice deposited by Old Man Winter.

Inside, vaulted ceilings grace every room, making the comfortable living spaces feel elegant and even more spacious than they already are. The tiled entry leads into the great room, where a ceiling-high arched window spreads natural light throughout. A gas fireplace with tile surround and hearth adds warmth and charm. To the left is a four-season verandah or sunroom, if you prefer where wall-to-wall windows provide access to the garden views.

In this model, a den to the right of the entry boasts yet more cathedral ceilings and another stunning mile-high palladium window. Need extra bedroom space? French doors allow privacy, making this an ideal third bedroom. Next door is the guest suite, featuring, yes, another vaulted ceiling, access to a shared bath, and a large closet.


A luxury kitchen overlooks the great room, separated from it by a convenient breakfast bar. Functionality is key in this cook s haven, highlighted by quality appliances, long counters, a built-in buffet, a spacious pantry and lots of lovely cherry cabinets. Plant shelves showcase flora, artwork or crockery in style. A door off the kitchen leads to a laundry room and two-car garage with pull-down stairs to the attic. You ll never complain about a lack of storage again!

Off the great room is a roomy master suite, with yet another palladian window and vaulted ceiling. The master bath includes a long double vanity, a step-in shower with tiled bench, and a water closet that can be made private by closing a pocket door. A walk-in closet with lots of shelf space completes the amenities.

The model homes at Quarry s Edge and Stone Gate Villas feature the Canterbury floor plan and contain many upgrades, but it must be noted that the vaulted ceilings and arch-topped windows are standard in all the homes no matter which floor plan you prefer. Other standard features include the fully-insulated two-car garage with opener, an air infiltration package, composite siding, a 90% efficient furnace, architectural shingles, and the great room s warm and welcoming fireplace.
