The cool lakeside breeze floats through an open window at 4705 Tradewinds Drive at Harbor’s Edge. The sound of water lapping against the boardwalk sets the mood for relaxation. Are you on vacation? No, you’re home.


Cool, clean breezes loft through high ceilings, a calm and tranquil atmosphere associated with homes along the water’s edge set the properties at Harbor’s Edge at Catawba Island leagues apart from other Lake Erie retreats. After one look at the homes in Harbor’s Edge, be prepared to fall in love with the idea of owning your own piece of nautical paradise by the lake.



Imagine afternoons filled with family fun on the lawn, swimming, boating and barbeques, family gathering around a cozy fire in the great room and enjoying good conversation of friends on your patio. Now imagine creating these memories all year long. Kopf Builders, developers of Harbor’s Edge, continue to offer superior design and functionality with their Biscayne Ranch and Biscayne two-story floor plans.



The versatile single story two-bedroom, two-bathroom residence offers a minimum of 2,071 square-feet of space; if choosing the larger floor plan, the addition creates room for a second master suite and a loft with a view breathtaking view. The Biscayne models feature two-car garages and additional space for a golf cart – a staple of island living.

Harbor’s Edge’s model home, located at 4705 Tradewinds Drive, defines gracious living, and is typical of the quality one can expect from Kopf Builders.



The kitchen boasts a highly patterned granite countertop and peninsula which matches the off-white cabinets. Stainless steel appliances pull the room together to create modern functionality.



The dining room sets adjacent to the kitchen and is accented by white wainscoting and matte black walls, which helps create openness between the two spaces. Antique-looking light fixtures help establish the home’s style and beauty.



A grand stacked stone fireplace establishes the height of the main living space. Stretching above the homes second story, the fully functional fireside retreat anchors the home in traditional elegance and decadent charm as large windows flank the stone hearth in light.



Entering the sunroom, the trend of natural illumination continues as the large windows encircle the space and provide a shield against the elements – drawing homeowner and visitor alike into the natural landscape of Ohio’s coastal region.



The master suite, located on the first floor, overlooks the patio. The focal point of the space is the alcove at the head of the bed where a headboard ceiling treatment helps create visual interest. A dressing area off the bedroom includes a large walk-in closet and an additional double closet. The master bath is classically adorned with black and white tile throughout the main space and into the step-in shower. A maple double vanity, topped with black granite, shines with bushed nickel fixtures – which are repeated on the deep soaking tub.

Two additional bedrooms are located on the second floor of the home. One room serves as a second master bedroom, complete with its own bath. Hand-fitted paneling helps create another faux headboard and large windows overlook the area’s golf course. Two walk-in closets are situated in this space and the room’s private bath features a large shower and a wide single vanity with a granite countertop. The final bedroom also has access to its own bath, which includes a tub/shower combination and a granite-topped vanity.

If you have always wanted “a little vacation everyday,” take a short ride to the upscale community of Harbors Edge and imagine owning your own little piece of paradise.
