The style and sophistication of European design can be found a little closer to home – on Toledo’s Deer Trail Court.

This home features luxuries commonly seen in countries bordering the Mediterranean – but with the large rooms typically found in traditional American homes.

The arches, taupe stucco and stacked stone on the home’s exterior anchor the property in Euro-style charm.

Leonardo travertine stone, hand-blown Murano glass sconces and pendant lighting, and Santa Cecilia granite are a few of the lavish features found here.

Topping out at 13-feet in the foyer, magnificent ceilings allude to the openness of the layout.

To the left of the foyer is the home’s first bedroom. This space features a Palladian window, double closet and access to a step-in glass shower. Lined in honed travertine tile with granite inlays, this bathroom boasts a theme consistent with the home’s design.

Double doors open to the second bedroom.

The home’s great room features a deep tray ceiling with crown molding and an ornate ceiling fan. A large gas fireplace boasts a Giallo Veneziano granite surround and stucco mantle.

The kitchen’s cherry cabinets are coated with a burgundy wine glaze and accented with polished nickel hardware. These mainstays coordinate with the silver galaxy granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The river rock back-splash and cork flooring generates additional interest in this space.

The dining area is denoted by an octagonal tray ceiling and a sliding glass door leads to a large poured concrete patio.

The master suite is accented with coved ceilings, a ceiling fan with muted lighting and access to the exclusive master bath – which features a vaulted ceiling and duel vanities. The bathroom also features walk-in closets and a private commode.





The breathtaking charm of Tuscany-inspired architecture is reflected in this Deer Tail Drive showcase home.

Open the Craftsman-style door and observe the high ceilings and a travertine marble floor with a black galaxy inlay border exude European allure while an art niche, accented by crema Bordeaux granite, anchors the room in sophisticated style.

An arched entryway leads to two bedrooms separated by a full bath, which features ivory travertine marble flooring and tiling. Two river rock inlays bordered by black galaxy marble seamlessly blend natural beauty with modern design, while emperador marble tops the vanity.

Crema Bordeaux granite is presented throughout the home and is highlighted in the great room’s fireplace. A deep tray ceiling is accented by crown molding and a staircase to the partial basement is accented with an oak railing and wrought iron balusters.

A classic hand-scraped hickory flooring with peppercorn stain adorns the kitchen, which is accented by the beautiful oil rubbed bronze chandelier. Reminiscent of Mediterranean style, the kitchen’s mocha maple cabinetry shines amid a coffee glaze beneath Blue Volga granite countertops.

Double doors mark the threshold of the home’s master suite. Tray ceilings in this space accentuate the room’s openness. Dual cherry vanities topped with granite and oil rubbed bronze fixtures are featured in the master bath. Marble with cremaBordeaux accents and flooring create a classic European ambiance and a private water closet and walk-in closet complete the space.

Taking a page from the Euro-stylebook, this home tastefully unifies the interior and exterior of the home with a four-season sunroom– a perfect place to share a bottle of wine with good company.
