Fairway Villas is surrounded by a new Arthur Hills-designed golf course that is part of the Catawba Island Club, which offers golf, boating, swimming, tennis, fine dining, casual dining, fitness center, great company and beautiful sunsets all on the shores of Lake Erie. Inexpensive memberships are optional.

Fairway Villas is a one-story ranch villa community on 34 acres surrounded by ponds and golf holes. Fairway Villas has its own four-time national award-winning community center which has a large gathering room for community functions or private parties. There are also a heated pool, fitness center and putting green. Fairway Villas is all about lifestyle.

Fairway Villas is a 160 home community and features golf course views, pond views, and boulevard locations. Fairway Villas is over 85 per cent sold out. Each villa is a part of an award-winning pinwheel design. You share only one common wall and are totally private – you'll never hear your neighbors. And each villa can be completely customized to your taste: your choice of custom cabinetry, granite or Corian countertops, stainless appliances, multiple flooring choices – ceramic, porcelain, wood, or carpet – and even a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace!


This impressive kitchen, with its soaring ceiling, can be customized to your taste with a choice of cabinets, finishes, countertops and more.


Inside, a graceful floor plan welcomes visitors. The tile entry leads into the vaulted great room, where a gas fireplace with tile surround and hearth sits next to a large palladium window. To the left is an all-season veranda, where large windows let in abundant sunlight. Put in the screens in the spring and summer and enjoy the breezes. Despite its name, this is a year-round room, heated and air conditioned for your comfort.

To the right of the front door is a sitting room or den whose focal point is another large palladium window. This room may also be used as a bedroom.

Beyond this is the guest suite, which has access to a shared bath. The guest room has a large closet and – you guessed it – another vaulted ceiling.

A word about these ceilings: they are an architectural element that adds not only height to the room, but visual interest and value to the property. And while the model home in this community contains many upgrades, it must be noted that the vaulted ceilings are standard, as are the palladium windows. Other standard features include raised bathroom vanities, a two-car garage with opener and space for a golf cart , an air infiltration insulation package, composite siding, a 90 percent+ high efficiency furnace, architectural shingles, and the great room's lovely fireplace.


The open floor plan of the villa offers an easy transition from the living room to the dining area.


At the far end of the great room is the kitchen. It's a convenient workspace, with long counters, a breakfast bar, lots of cabinets and a large pantry. A door at the back of the kitchen leads to a utility room with laundry hookups, and beyond that, to the two-car garage. The garage has pull-down stairs to an attic, which is decked to provide plenty of storage.

Opposite the veranda is the master suite, another large, airy space. The bedroom is large, with a palladium window and vaulted ceiling. The master bath includes a long double vanity – there's plenty of storage space here. The shower – a tiled walk-in with seat – and water closet are separate. At the end of the bathroom is a very generous walk-in closet, with lots of shelf and hanging space.
