It’s been a long, cold winter, but the days are finally warming and things are becoming greener, which can mean only one thing: spring is here! Until the groundhog comes back and tells us otherwise, we’ll be happy to shed our winter blues — and admire some houses on the market while we’re at it.
These gorgeous homes all incorporate features that are perfect for warmer days, including patios, gardens or lakeside lounging areas. Regardless of how you prefer to enjoy a beautiful day, there’s sure to be a home in the Toledo area perfect for you and your family.
Where Cozy Meets Elegant
This gorgeous home in Maumee is at the intersection of cozy and elegant. The dining room, living room, and each of the four bedrooms incorporate stunning classic windows that flood the entire home with light. On warmer days, lounge on the outdoor deck, which overlooks a stunning tree-lined garden — perfect for entertaining guests or just enjoying the spring sunshine!
A Cheerful and Gorgeous Perrysburg Home
This three-story beauty is located on a wooded lot in the picturesque Mission Hill neighborhood. The brightly colored walls and stacked windows are enough to pull sunshine in during any season, and make the house feel even warmer during spring. When those April showers hit, cozy up and watch a movie in the home theater or get in some reps in the exercise room.
A Riverside Home in Perrysburg
If one deck isn’t enough for you, check out this property — it has two! The wrap-around porches offer stellar views of the nearby river, as well as plenty of room for a hot-tub, a porch swing and patio furniture. When you’re not outside, cozy up by the two-story stone fireplace in the family room, or prepare a meal in the eat-in kitchen.
A Charming Farm Cottage
This 1887 cottage in Toledo reserves all the charm, but has been updated with modern touches and appliances for maximum comfort. We can’t get enough of the gorgeous outdoor archways, clean living space, and stunning secluded lot with plenty of trees and views of the creek. The patio is calling!
An Indoor Basketball, a Golf Course and all the Pretty Details to Boot
It’s all in the details in this spectacular home overlooking the Sylvania Country Club golf course. If the indoor basketball court doesn’t immediately grab your attention, admire the gardens out front, the elegant glass detailing in the windows, and the villa-like brick features in the large kitchen. The lot itself is also incredible, with greenery galore to shade you from the sun on hot days.
A Luxurious Lakeside Hangout
Warm days are best spent lounging by the water, and at this home, you’ll feel like you’re at a lakeside retreat. The windows and porches offer unbeatable views of the crystal clear water in Albon Lake, and the floating patio allows you to experience it yourself. Other features include a wet bar, wired speakers throughout the house, high ceilings and a cantilever deck. Everything about this home screams, “summer is coming!”
A Stately Brick Home with Deck and Gazebo
The tiered deck, gazebo and lakeside swing at this property have us dreaming of lazy Sundays. And while the outdoor features are spectacular, they are nothing in comparison to the stately details in the home. Step up to an elegant brick entryway before exploring the rest of the house, which includes a three-car garage, high ceilings, a giant chef’s kitchen and a spa-like master bathroom.
