With so many choices these days, one choice remains crystal clear: a 15-year tax abatement on a new home at Edgebrook Villas is not an offer to merely pass up without taking a peak.

Edgebrook Development Co. Builder David Schmitt says this offer can mean a savings of more than $2,000 on yearly real estate taxes -- totaling a substantial nest-egg over the 15-year period. In addition to owning a beautiful, well-crafted home, Schmitt said he knows security and stability are paramount, which is why the company offers the tax break.

With the threat off your wallet, potential owners are able to focus on the plethora of amenities and conveniences offered by Edgebrook.

The exterior of the featured home at 6037 Brookridge Court, boasts a stone front elevation with cream siding, which is accentuated by a peaked picture window. Walk up the poured concrete walkway to the covered front porch, which is nestled next to the garage to protect guests from the elements.



Upon entering, visitors are welcomed by a graceful entryway where Oak hardwood floors gleam beautifully underfoot. To the left are stairs leading down to the partial basement, while at right a guest closet and the first of three bedrooms are easily accessible.



The bedroom ties the elements of nature with the coziness of a sleeping space. The picture window is an abundant source of natural light, while the vaulted ceiling promotes openness. When evening draws near, recessed lighting provides subtle illumination and drama to the room.

Adjacent to the bedroom is a full bath where a cultured marble countertop and brushed nickel hardware, create a stylish ambiance to the space.

At the end of the foyer is the great room which features a cathedral ceiling. The room is anchored by a gas fireplace with a marble surround, raised hearth and a white wood mantel.

The master suite can be accessed off the great room. This luxurious retreat offers a place for quiet relaxation. A deep tray ceiling adds a touch of elegance to the room, and the attached bathroom offers a private escape. Owners will enjoy the walk-in shower with two seats, the private water closet, and the raised dual vanity. Neighboring the bath is the large walk-in closet, which makes a desirable dressing area.



Across the great room, close to the kitchen, is the dining area which includes a door leading to a poured concrete patio.



The kitchen, a key conversation room in any home, includes a peninsula snack bar so guests can visit with the cook while not interfering with the cooking space. This home boasts ample counter space, and standard features such as a GE electric stove, a vented range hood and more. Beyond mere functionality, this kitchen touts style. Birch cabinets, recessed lighting and neutral countertops create a modern and functional look sure to please any chef.

Off the kitchen's short hall, another bedroom (shown in this model as an office) is tucked away for the sake of solitude.

Other features include ample closet space, main-floor laundry room and a two-car

This model home, the Woodbridge, is one of five offered. Sixteen lots are available in this development, which is close to Kroger, Walmart, and easy access to I-475 and US 23. New home prices in this development begin at $139,900. Homeowners’ association fees are $100 a month, and include lawn care, snow removal and leaf pick-up. The home is open 1-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, or by appointment by calling Julie Fisher at (419) 343-8834. To get to the home, head west on Edgebrook Boulevard off Holland-Sylvania Road and follow the road until you reach Brookridge Court.
