Living at Mallards Edge

The hardest decision when building a home in Mallards Edge is choosing between a lake or golf course view. It’s like picking between an Audi and a Mercedes. There is no wrong choice. They both are highly coveted.

A planned community of freestanding single-family homes skirting Mallard Creek Golf Club, Mallards Edge’s new phase consisting of 51 homesites features picturesque, serene views everywhere you look. 

“The new phase comprised of waterfront homesites and lots fronting the golf course has opened up some of the best views in the community, with every home looking out at the 10-acre lake and fountain or the golf course fairways and greens,” says Ron Palmer, builder and developer of Mallards Edge.

When completed, 125 homes will be spread among the 67-acre subdivision, which is dominated by a verdant landscape and five lakes. Forty-six acres of the community consists of homeowner-owned green space and passive recreation, including three stocked lakes with fishing piers. 

“More than just selling homes, we are selling a lifestyle,” comments Ron. “People deserve to love where they live.”

Designed to appeal to discerning homeowners, all of the homes feature the highest-quality materials and finishes, including 2x6 stud exterior wall construction filled with blown-in cellulose insulation, Andersen windows, premium flooring, tiled master bathroom showers, high-efficiency furnaces and central air conditioning units, oversized garages, and a 50-year warranty on shingles—all standard features.

“When you visit our model home, everything you see is what you get,” says Joe Lucarelli, sales associate. 

“You don’t have to pay for upgrades to get stainless steel appliances and granite or quartz countertops. Those are all included. Plenty of LED recessed lights are included on the first floor and under cabinet lighting is a standard feature.”

At Mallards Edge, there are four models to choose from, offering 1,500 to 3,800 square feet of living space. Homeowners also have the option to add a standard basement or, on some select lots, they can opt for walk-out and day-light basements.

“Due to the high demand from homeowners who want basements for extra living space or for more storage, we can build finished basements,” says Ron. 

“Even though homeowners—especially empty nesters and retirees—are looking to downsize, they still want plenty of space.”

The open-concept floor plans with high ceilings allow families to choose how they want to live, as the homes are personalized to each homeowner depending on their needs. 

“Using premium building products and expert workmanship, our homes are extremely energy efficient,” says construction manager Chris Palmer, noting that even the garage door and garage walls are insulated. 

At the cornerstone of the community is low-maintenance living, where you spend more time doing what you want to do and not what needs to be done. “I like to tell people to trade in their lawn mower for a golf cart,” Ron says.

“By building in a sleepy suburban neighborhood in Eaton Township, we are able to keep the building prices reasonable with homes priced to sell from the $300,000s,” says Joe. “And we are centrally located within minutes of 1-480 and I-71, close to shopping and dining, and only 30 minutes from downtown Cleveland.”

“The new homesites will be available at the beginning of November,” he says. “We currently have a waiting list for any interested customers.”
