A vaulted ceiling and a gas fireplace with a granite surround make this great room an inviting space.


Every person has a vision of their dream home. If yours involves a comfortable villa with a water view, and low taxes plus convenient access to major shopping, dining, entertainment and more, take a close look at this villa in Bedford Township.

Located just off Douglas Road about a quarter-mile north of Sterns Road in Bedford, Michigan you’ll enjoy a low monthly homeowner’s association fee, which covers lawn care, and snow removal. And for those who are anticipating retirement, Michigan does not tax Social Security or public pension benefits. A relaxing fountain aerates a large lake in the center of the neighborhood. This villa at 2146 Fountain Circle is priced at $ 214,900.

The exterior is clad in stone and gray vinyl, and the covered front porch shields your guests from the weather.

Inside, the foyer boasts a ceramic tile floor. To the left is the first of three bedrooms. This gracious space is notable for its high vaulted ceiling and a beautiful Palladian window. A large closet and an alcove are included in this room.

The bedroom is adjacent to a full bath. A white vanity with a cultured marble top looks lovely here. Nearby is a guest closet.

The foyer opens to the great room, framed beautifully by classic pillars. The tall vaulted ceiling adds space and drama to the great room. A gas fireplace boasts a granite surround and white wood mantle with classic dentil molding.

Off the great room, the master bedroom boasts a deep tray ceiling with a convenient ceiling fan. This generously proportioned room is large enough for a king bed, a dresser, an armoire, and bedside tables.

The master bathroom has a large vanity with plenty of storage space. White wood is topped with white cultured marble for a clean look. The step-in shower has two seats, and a large walk-in closet provides even more storage. This is a fine example of what you would expect in a quality-built villa.


The efficient kitchen includes a peninsula snack bar, open to the great room.


Off the great room, the open kitchen features beautiful tall birch cabinets with brushed nickel hardware. Counters are topped with Wilsonart laminate in a hi-def finish, giving them the look of stone, while the floors are a warm solid oak hardwood. A peninsula snack bar is lit by attractive pendant lights, and provides extra counter space. A pantry offers storage for your foodstuffs. Stainless steel appliances provide a professional look. An adjacent dining area has attractive recessed lighting.

Beyond it is the sunroom, framed by a pair of pillars and an archway. The sunroom offers visual interest with a vaulted ceiling, round top window, a ceiling fan and a beautiful view of the pond. A door from this room leads to the poured con-crete patio; this is a perfect place for your grill and outdoor entertaining.

A back hall off the kitchen leads to a laundry room, a coat closet, and access to the three-car garage. The garage is well insulated and finished with painted walls. It contains pull down stairs to a large attic.

This villa comes with a one-year warranty and is Energy Star rated.
