McCarthy Builders presents a pleasure for the senses at Riverbend

Dark brown maple cabinetry with a chocolate glaze finish shines in the home's kitchen; a tile back-splash with glass inserts glimmers among the stainless steel appliances.


Just off beautiful River Road in Perrysburg, the enchantingly rustic beauty of the Craftsman-style villa by McCarthy Builders at 15879 Cornerbrook Court in Riverbend beckons spectators to take a closer look. Its stone skirting expertly accents the shake siding and inset shutters, while the carriage-style garage door invites additional interest.

Turn the handle of the home’s main entrance and step onto the gorgeous Egyptian stone tile. Bask in the illumination of the home’s magnificent windows throughout the expansive layout – completed by 10-foot ceilings dramatically accented with two-piece stained crown molding. The staircase leading to the basement is set apart by its modern wood banister and wrought iron balusters.

To the left of the home’s foyer is the first bedroom. This bedroom – or possible office space – boasts large windows that overlook the front lawn. A large double closet, neutral carpeting and paint complete the space.

The area’s full bathroom is only steps away and is accessible from the hall. The crisp, white décor of this room was chosen to tastefully portray its elegant simplicity, which – because it is set apart from the heart of the home – is perfect for guests.

Directly ahead of this magnificent home’s foyer is the great room. Sunlight floods through the triple transom window and features views of an exclusive countryside estate. When evening falls, curl up in front of the home’s luxurious gas fireplace and admire the classic white wood mantelpiece and granite surround.

Open to the main living space is the lavish dining and kitchen area, united by the black Uba Tuba granite-topped breakfast bar. The spacious dining room is aesthetically pleasing, and offers continuity throughout the open floor plan.

The sunroom is just off the dining area. Tall, white pillars flank the arched threshold and lead to a room with appealing views in three directions. A glass door, featuring built-in blinds that never need cleaning, opens to the stamped concrete patio at the rear of the home.

This entire dining room, sun room and patio layout makes entertaining family and friends a breeze.


Amber pendant lights illuminate the breakfast bar.


The home’s modern, functional kitchen is situated on the other side of the dining area. Dark brown maple cabinetry with a chocolate glaze finish shines; while the tile backsplash with glass inserts glimmers among the stainless steel appliances and large, undermount stainless steel kitchen sink. Egyptian stone tile flooring is a dominant feature of the room and coordinates well with the amber pendant lighting that suspends above the breakfast bar. In addition to plentiful counter space and storage, this designer kitchen also features a large pantry and access to the home’s utility room and two-car garage, complete with pull-down stairs for attic storage.

The second bedroom and master bedroom suite are both accessible from the home’s great room.

Large double windows illuminate the master bedroom, while light bounces off the deep tray ceiling. The suite features a private bathroom with a double sink vanity. Set apart from the sink is the toilet and large, two- seated step-in shower. This space includes its own small window for natural illumination and ventilation. Accessible from the bathroom is the large walk-in closet and dressing room. Spacious and well-lit, this room is ready to be customized with shelving, drawers and other organizational units.

The villa property is virtually maintenance free, with lawn care and snow removal, as well as maintenance of common areas, handled by the homeowners association.

In addition to owning a charming home in this exclusive neighborhood, home owners will have access to Anthony Wayne school district; shopping, dining and entertainment at Levis Commons and the Shops at Fallen Timbers, and the benefits of living minutes from Toledo, Bowling Green, Maumee and the city centers of Perrysburg and Waterville.

The featured home, 15879 Cornerbrook Court, Perrysburg, is priced at $224,900 and is located off River Road between Perrysburg and Waterville in Wood County’s Middleton Township. Stop by during a special open house today, Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., or arrange an appointment by calling Joyce Allen at 419-360-1534.
