Perrysburg’s Riverbend neighborhood is one of the area’s most prestigious locations, just off River Road and a few miles downriver from historic Waterville. Riverbend offers beautiful views, a park-like setting, and easy access to schools, shopping, dining and more.

Nestled in this pastoral area is a new villa from builder Brian McCarthy. The model home, a Toscana floor plan featuring a sunroom and basement, offers 1,749 square feet of living space.

Located at 15879 Cornerbrook Court, the model home has an attractive stone facing and skirting below tan composite siding. Carmel-colored shutters are a nice contrast. A poured walkway leads to the covered front porch – a welcome feature on a recent windy day.

The front door is white and flanked by sidelights. A transom overhead allows even more light into the home.

The foyer’s ceiling rises nine feet, and is bordered by stained crown molding. A bowl light provides illumination.

Nearby, a staircase descends to the basement. The basement is drywalled and awaits your finishing touches.

To the left off the foyer is a bedroom with a double closet. A full bath, with a white wood vanity and white cultured marble top, is adjacent.

Straight ahead is the great room, which continues the stained crown molding from the foyer. A corner gas fireplace provides light and warmth at the flick of a switch. The fireplace is the showpiece of the room, with a raised granite hearth and surround, and a white wood mantel with dentil molding.

Tall windows, topped by transoms, overlook the back of the property, beyond which there are views of a pasture and a pond.

The kitchen is open to the great room. A peninsula snack bar is at counter height, affording a wide work area and comfortable seating at the bar. Thick slabs of dark granite have been crafted into attractive countertops, and beautiful birch cabinets in a saddle finish rise to the ceiling. Amber pendants light the snack bar, and stainless appliances, including a range, microwave and dishwasher, are included. A pantry provides extra storage space.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a large space for dining, and beyond that dining area – and providing a view to the outdoors for the cook – is the relaxing sunroom. Offset by pillars and a graceful archway, the sunroom’s cathedral ceiling and wraparound windows will make this your favorite spot in the house. Because the lot slopes away from the home, you will feel like you are sitting in a high perch. A door here leads to the poured concrete patio.

Off the kitchen, a short hall leads to another bedroom, as well as the laundry room, a closet, and the two-car garage. The garage has pulldown stairs to an attic, where you may store seasonal items out of the way.

Off the great room is the master suite. The master bedroom has a deep tray ceiling with a large white ceiling fan to make your nights more comfortable. The ensuite bath includes a double vanity in white, a step-in shower with two seats, and a large walk-in closet.

Brian McCarthy, the builder of this villa, has a wealth of experience after more than 25 years in the business. Each of his homes is built to exacting standards, a fact to which his many satisfied customers will attest. Purchasers of McCarthy villas at Riverbend enjoy a low maintenance lifestyle, with snow removal and grass cutting handled by a homeowners association.

In addition to lots reserved for McCarthy villa construction, there are also 100-foot wide lots intended for construction of custom-built homes. A variety of lots are still available, including lake lots as well as ravine lots, which are ideal for home designs with walk-out lower levels. Aggressively priced in the $34,900-$49,900 range, these lots are selling fast. Whether you are a villa or a custom-built home customer, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to relocate to this premier subdivision.
