ith water at your front and back doors, this custom-built Sandusky, Ohio home truly is a boater’s dream. Half of the lot, including the home itself, is located on Sandusky Bay. The land across Cedar Point Road — and on Lake Erie — is part of the property as well. “It’s a lake-to-bay lot,” says owner Tom Slattery, who designed the 11-year-old home to best take advantage of its unique location on the water. There are, for example, picture windows throughout the house. “When you’re in the great room, you see the beauty of Lake Erie,” he says. “You’re right there. The real key is the views you have from the home of the lake and bay.” No expense was spared on the home itself. It was built with poured walls, and all of the decks were done with reinforced concrete. Custom cherry woodwork and radiant floor heating are both found throughout. The main floor includes the great room, dining room, den and kitchen, which boasts custom cherry cabinets, high-end appliances and a custom-built island.

“The mezzanine deck off the kitchen has exterior red quarry tile, as well as a Viking grill that matches the cooktop in the kitchen,” Slattery says. Upstairs, the master suite overlooking Lake Erie is complete with spa shower and his-and-her closets. Also upstairs are two additional bedrooms, another full bath, and a large office over a the three-and-a-half-car garage. Outside, custom landscaping and a zoned sprinkler system are just the beginning. On the lake side is a beach house with electric, water and cable — and four quarry stone columns that match stone used elsewhere in the home. It’s not just a sliver of beach, either. “It’s on average 150 feet deep to the water,” Slattery says. On the home’s bay side, there’s a 20,000-pound lift under the boathouse, as well as an additional 5,000-pound lift. Custom aluminum docks surround the boathouse. “You’re out on the western basin of Lake Erie,” Slattery says. “You have access to all the beautiful islands — Kelleys Island, the Bass Islands and Pelee Island.” LB
