What is your ideal of the perfect summer?  For many of us, it is a time when the livin’ is truly easy, where the decision to spend a day on the lake or on the links is the hardest thing you’ll do.

There is plenty of summertime left, and now is the perfect time to enjoy it. Kopf Builders, developers of Harbor’s Edge, are proud to unveil The Biscayne Ranch floorplan. A versatile two-bedroom, two-bath residence, it is also available with an optional loft providing another bedroom, a bath, and a sitting area – perfect for visiting guests. At 2,071 square feet, it is quite spacious, and includes a two-car garage with space for a golf cart.

If you have always wanted a summer home -- one that can be enjoyed year ‘round – take the short ride to this upscale community. Adjacent to the Catawba Island Club and a short walk to the shore, you are close to dining, entertainment, and natural beauty, all in abundance. Enjoy boating, golf, touring Lake Erie's picturesque islands, or sport fishing -- or all of the above, just steps from your door.

The model for Harbor’s Edge by Kopf Builders, 4705 Tradewinds Drive, defines gracious living, and is typical of the quality one can expect here.

The kitchen is a work of art, with a highly patterned granite countertop and off white cabinets. A peninsula countertop offers a place for a snack or the morning coffee.  Stainless appliances gleam silver in the black and white kitchen.

The garage – two cars and a golf cart port – are located off the kitchen.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room. White wainscoting and matte black walls create a dramatic look, emphasized by an antique-looking chandelier.

In the great room, a stone fireplace rises to the second story of the home, broken by a custom-made mantle. Large windows flank the fireplace at eye level and above, allowing sunlight to flood the space.

The sunroom is next, distinctive with its vaulted beadboard ceiling. Large windows ring the room, and a sliding door leads to the patio.

The master bedroom, located on the first floor, overlooks the patio and to the golf course beyond. The focal point of this room, however, is the alcove at the head of the bed. A beadboard ceiling treatment also creates visual interest.

A dressing area off the bedroom includes a large walk-in closet and a smaller double closet. The master bath has a classic black and white tile floor; the pattern is repeated in the trim of the step-in shower. A maple double vanity is topped with black granite; brushed nickel fixtures here and on the deep soaking tub shine.

A staircase, with an oak railing and white balustrades, rises to the second floor sitting area, featuring a custom-built bookcase.  Move your computer upstairs for a home office with a view.

Two bedrooms are located on this floor.  The first is a second master bedroom, with its own ensuite bath. Hand-fitted beadboard paneling here creates another faux headboard, and large windows overlook the golf course. Two walk-in closets grace this suite; the first offers attic access. The bath features a large shower and a wide single vanity with a granite countertop.

The second bedroom has been cleverly designed as a children’s room.  This bedroom also has access to its own bath, with a tub/shower combination and granite-topped vanity.
