The Gem of Emerald Lake: McCarthy Builders now offers 2-story ranch

  • Bonus-room
  • Tall-cabinets

Tall cabinets, black granite countertops, recessed lighting and stainless steel appliances come together to create a luxurious family-style kitchen.


Step inside Emerald Lakes’ newest gem and fall in love with its elegance and open floor plan. Every feature of this 2,378-square-foot home optimizes efficiency. The home at 26316 Stillwater Drive in Perrysburg Township is more than a house, it’s an oasis.

While meandering through the neighborhood, one’s eye is drawn to this stylish stone home. The pathway to its front door passes through lush landscaping that provides a welcome ambiance. The front door –flanked by sidelights and a transom window – opens to a hardwood foyer that gleams below the elegant chandelier. While looking upward to admire the lighting, notice the wood and wrought iron railing.

At left is a large coat closet, and to the right is an impressive glass door that provides entry into the home’s office. Arched windows and a vaulted ceiling complement this space and neutral carpeting and paint bring the room together.

The hardwood flooring from the entryway extends forward into the main living space, where it wraps around the stairway and continues into the home’s kitchen, dining and sunroom area. The family room features neutral carpeting and a gas fireplace accentuated by the flood of sunlight from three large windows and a transom window over the top.

A well-designed kitchen features painted white cabinets with chocolate glazing, which are complemented by dark granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Nearby, the dinette merges into the sunroom. Breathtaking panoramic views of the lake and fountain are made possible from the sunroom by the tall windows and sliding glass door that provides access to the property’s concrete patio. This wing of the home also features a laundry room, half-bath and access to the large two-car garage.

To the right of the main living area is the master suite, which features large windows and a pan ceiling with fan. The room offers space for a king-size bed and features access to a large master bath with twin sinks, a large shower and a huge walk-in closet.


This large “bonus” room offers homeowners additional space for hobbies or entertainment.


A distinguishing feature of this home is its second story. A bridge connects the two spacious bedrooms with a full bath and a unique Bonus room, and offers aerial views of the water and fireplace. The bedrooms feature large closets and neutral decor.

This model home starts at $208,900, including high-efficiency Andersen windows,

95% rated furnace, and many other custom features.

McCarthy is now building in the final plat. Visit the sales center to choose your new home site.
