There s no sign of recession in the Village of Brookhaven. This Perrysburg neighborhood off Five Point Road is blooming with new homes, all of them beautifully constructed by Saba Custom Homes.
Our featured home, at 6139 Brookhaven Blvd., is a two-story home encompassing 2,444 square feet. The exterior is tan vinyl and red brick, and a blacktop driveway leads to the two and a half car garage. A poured, stamped concrete walkway invites you to the covered front porch. The front door is flanked by sidelights.
Inside, the two-story foyer, highlighted by a graceful chandelier, provides an elegant welcome. A ceramic tile floor and a guest closet complete this space.
To the right is the formal dining room. You will love having holiday dinners in this stylish space. An oil-rubbed bronze chandelier descends from the ceiling, and a large window opens the room considerably. Nearby are the steps to the full basement, a feature standard in all Saba homes.
Straight ahead is the great room. A row of three windows is topped by three transoms, allowing sunlight to stream into this tall room. The room is dominated by a gas fireplace with an oversize white wood mantel and tile surround.
Just off the great room is the eat-in kitchen. Sliding doors near the informal dining area lead to the patio, which is poured and stamped to match the front walkway.
The kitchen is both stylish and functional, with a center island snack bar. Maple cabinets have a sorrel finish and crown molding, and granite countertops make a bold statement. Pendant lights hang above the island and the sink, and recessed lighting offers greater illumination. GE stainless appliances include a refrigerator, oven, microwave and dishwasher. A large walk-in pantry provides storage.
A back hall leads to a powder room and the door to the garage, as well as a utility room with cabinets, a countertop and a sink. There is plenty of room here to store and work on crafts projects, as well as the family laundry. A closet is a convenient place to hang up coats when coming in through the garage.
The staircase to the second floor is located off the foyer. White balusters and a maple handrail make a nice contrast. At the top of the staircase, the landing becomes a balcony overlooking the foyer.
To the left are the first two bedrooms. Each has a tray ceiling and a double closet. Across the hall from these is a lovely bedroom with a cathedral ceiling. Decorated as a little girl s room, it sports a fanciful chandelier. Next door is a full bath.
At the end of the hall is the master suite. A deep tray ceiling with fan adds height and interest to this room. The spa-like master bath is a private retreat, with elegant touches at every turn.
A double vanity in maple with a sorrel finish has a white cultured marble top. Under the window is a large garden tub. Imagine soaking here under the barrel vaulted ceiling and delicate oil rubbed bronze chandelier. A step-in shower, private water closet, and walk-in closet complete the master bath.
