The home at 25192 Rocky Harbour Drive in Perrysburg’s Riverbend community is luxurious, with beautiful finishes, outstanding fixtures, and delightful extras. Most amazing about this home, though, is its ability to be both luxurious and, well, homey.

That is a hallmark of Stonebridge Construction. The home may be a showplace, but real people will live here,

and every comfort is provided for.

This 3,772 square foot home is no exception. The exterior is a winning combination of oversized brick and cultured stone, tan vinyl and chocolate brown shutters. The front door, with sidelights and a transom, is stained fiberglass. A dentil shelf on the door adds to the Craftsman appeal.

Inside, an expansive foyer welcomes visitors. To the right, a home office boasts an 11-foot ceiling. Three-foot wainscoting rings the room, and long windows introduce sunlight to the space.

Across the foyer is the dining room. This is a wonderful space, with five-foot wainscoting painted a subtle cream color. Moldings add detail, and a striking wrought iron chandelier completes the look. You will love hosting celebrations here!

The foyer leads into the great room. To the right is the living area, with numerous built-in bookcases and a stone fireplace with a raised hearth. To the left is the gourmet kitchen.

The cabinets here echo the creamy family room bookcases. Granite countertops stretch for miles, bordered by a decorative tile backsplash. A center island, painted black, is also granite -topped. It is illuminated from above by blown glass pendants.

Appliances include built-in double ovens, a stainless five-burner cooktop, and a stainless dishwasher.

Two knotty alder doors are here; one leads to the full lookout basement; the other opens to a pantry.

Near the windows is the breakfast nook, a cheerful space due to its proximity to the large windows overlooking the back deck and the wooded lot.

One of the highlights of this home is the sunroom. A vaulted ceiling, rustic beams and textured walls give this room an antique feeling. It will become one of your favorite places to kick back with a good book and enjoy the breezes from the ceiling fan or from the sliding door to the deck.

The deck is amazing, a large space for entertaining. This home is situated on a ravine lot, so the deck feels as if you are in a very special tree house.

Down a back hall off the kitchen is the mudroom, easily accessible to the three-car garage and a covered back porch. Lockers and a bench make this a convenient space for bookbags and snow boots. A powder room is also convenient for quick trips from the outdoors.

The layout of this home is unusual in that the staircase to the second floor is at the back of the home. Upstairs are five bedrooms, including a luxurious master suite with his and hers closets, a bedroom with tray ceiling, and a spa-like master bath.

Two of the secondary bedrooms share a Jack ‘n Jill bath; the other two share a hall bath.

There are two generous linen closets.

Best of all, perhaps, may just be the second floor laundry room. A sink here makes hand-washing garments easy, and a long table is a perfect place to fold. And you’re right down the hall from the bedrooms!

No detail has been overlooked in this home, from the pebbled floor of the master bath shower to the wrought iron hardware throughout, to the clear grade Cumaru Brazilian

Teak flooring, to the granite of every countertop, to the epoxy floor of the garage.

It is a luxurious home, to be sure, but one that makes you feel right at home.

River Bend is located off River Road in Perrysburg, between Roachton Rd. and Five Point Rd. The home at 25192 Rocky Harbour Dr. is offered at $495,000 by Stonebridge Construction. It will be open today from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from noon to 2 p.m., and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., or by appointment by calling builder John Jesionowski at 419-466-5808.
