  • Kopf Builders have been hard at work, building more luxury homes adjacent to the Catawba Island Club. With two developments, Harbor’s Edge and The Sanctuary, there are a variety of luxury home choices available.

    Kopf’s first development here, Harbor’s Edge, includes beautiful townhomes that begin in the $290,000s. Each one, from the Biscayne Ranch to the 2600 square foot Cayman model, are imbued with finest in materials and craftsmanship.

    The Biscayne Ranch is a versatile two-bedroom, two-bath residence, also available with an optional loft providing another bedroom, a bath, and a sitting area – perfect for visiting guests. At 2,071 square feet, it is quite spacious, and includes a two-car garage with space for a golf cart.

    The model for Harbor’s Edge by Kopf Builders, 4705 Tradewinds Drive, defines gracious living, and is typical of the quality one can expect here.

    The kitchen is a work of art, with a highly patterned granite countertop and off white cabinets. A peninsula countertop offers a place for a snack or morning coffee. Stainless appliances gleam silver in the black and white kitchen.

    The garage – two cars and a golf cart port – are located off the kitchen.

    Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room. White wainscoting and matte black walls create a dramatic look, emphasized by an antique-looking chandelier.

    In the great room, a stone fireplace rises to the second story of the home, broken by a custom-made mantle. Large windows flank the fireplace at eye level and above, allowing sunlight to flood the space.

    The sunroom is next, distinctive with its vaulted bead-board ceiling. Large windows ring the room, and a sliding door leads to the patio.

    The master bedroom, located on the first floor, overlooks the patio and to the golf course beyond. The focal point of this room, however, is the alcove at the head of the bed. A beadboard ceiling treatment also creates visual interest.

    A dressing area off the bedroom includes a large walk-in closet and a smaller double closet. The master bath has a classic black and white tile floor; the pattern is repeated in the trim of the step-in shower. A maple double vanity is topped with black granite; brushed nickel fixtures here and on the deep soaking tub shine.

    A staircase, with an oak railing and white balustrades, rises to the second floor sitting area, featuring a custom-built bookcase. Move your computer upstairs for a home office with a view.

    Two bedrooms are located on this floor. The first is a second master bedroom, with an ensuite bath. Hand-fitted beadboard paneling creates another faux headboard, and large windows overlook the golf course. Two walk-in closets grace this suite; the first offers attic access. The bath features a large shower and a wide single vanity with a granite countertop.

    The second bedroom has been cleverly designed as a children’s room. This bedroom also has access to its own bath, with a tub/shower combination and granite-topped vanity.

    Brand new to Kopf is The Sanctuary. The Sanctuary features single family homes with a view of Lake Erie. These range in size from 2,600 to 3,300 square feet, and begin in the $600,000s. The Tournament Homes are freestanding, maintenance-free homes located within Harbor’s Edge. They range in size from 1,780 square feet to 2,600 square feet, and start at $339,900.

    Adjacent to the Catawba Island Club and a short walk to the shore, these homes is close to dining, entertainment, and natural beauty, all in abundance. Enjoy boating, golf, touring Lake Erie’s picturesque islands, or sport fishing – or all of the above, just steps from your door.
