The impressive great room, seen from the catwalk above, is an inviting gathering space.
This week’s featured home is a model that puts other homes to shame – and is a fine example of the type of design and construction you can expect from Saba Custom Homes.
Located at 3265 Sterlingwood Lane in the Village of Brookhaven in Perrysburg, it is the Barrington floor plan. Clad in red brick and grey vinyl, the home rises two stories with elegant white pillars supporting the front porch overhang.
Inside, the soaring foyer features a lovely brushed nickel chandelier, visible through the large transom window above the front door. Oversized porcelain tile flooring leads from the foyer to the kitchen and beyond.
To the right is the formal dining room, where a unique drum-style chandelier hangs over the dining table. A large window allows plentiful natural light.
Nearby is a guest closet; across from it is the staircase to the basement. In Saba Custom Homes, all basements are insulated, drywalled, and rough plumbed for a full bath.
Straight ahead is the great room. This lovely space features a lofty vaulted ceiling. A wall of windows overlooks the backyard -- even on gloomy days, they admit abundant natural light. A gas fireplace with a tile surround helps warm the space on chilly evenings. It is topped by an oversized white wood mantle, which complements the wide, white baseboards.
Open to the great room is the gourmet kitchen. This is a cook’s dream, with plenty of counterspace, a large work island with snack bar, and a generous pantry. The cabinets are maple with a chocolate finish, topped with beautiful Santa Cecilia granite. A backsplash in glass and stone is a highlight of this space. Pendant lights shine down on the island, and stainless appliances are included.
One can enjoy informal dining in the kitchen as well, in view of sliding doors that lead to the good-sized patio.
Beyond the kitchen is a short hall that leads to a mudroom area, with built-in lockers for storing bookbags, jackets and sports gear. Access to the two and a half car garage is here, as are a coat closet, the laundry room, and a powder room.
Off the foyer, a staircase rises to the second floor. At the top of the stairs, a catwalk acts as a balcony overlooking the great room and the foyer.
Four bedrooms are on this floor. The first two each feature tray ceilings and double closets. The third, shown here as a little girl’s room, boasts a vaulted ceiling and a fanciful crystal chandelier. A double closet will hold her wardrobe.
These three bedrooms share a hall bath, which is home to a double vanity topped with black granite.
At the end of the hall is the master suite. A deep tray ceiling with fan adds an elegant air to the bedroom. Double doors open to the spa-like master bath, where a deep soaking tub is nestled beneath a glass block window, which admits natural light while ensuring privacy. A step-in shower is quite convenient, and a large walk-in closet has plenty of space for two. The vanity is maple, with a black granite top. A private water closet completes the space.
