Every home we spotlight has a personality based on the owner’s lifestyle and decorating preferences. This month we visit an eclectic house in Perrysburg, built in the 80’s that features a Man Cabin that could be the inspiration for a David Lloyd Glover painting. Tim and Sally Goligoski’s house has many interesting elements featuring a colorful kitchen with a vintage Texaco margarita dispenser and decorative period signage, tastefully decorated den and living room areas and a charming sun porch leading to the yard. The outdoors is a mass of fabulous plantings, unique art and an eye-catching sculpture, purchased at a concrete show/event held years ago. But the real standout is Tim’s man cabin built over the garage. He designed and built the area as his personal space and uses it daily as an office and getaway. While most men want a cave, Tim likes the openness and light that the cabin offers. This home’s personality certainly does reflect its owner’s – fun, unique and one-of-a-kind.
When people talk about the Toledo area’s important assets they invariably mention the Zoo, the Museum, the Metroparks, Lake Erie and the Library. One important asset that is not often mentioned, but likely should be, is CareNet.
Perhaps the oldest of all restaurant mantras is to treat your customers as if they were family. But for Candice and Mustafa Ilgin, spouses and owners of Toledo’s Glendale Garden Cafe, that philosophy extends beyond rhetoric and into action. For over two decades, they have hosted their customers like family— and, they explain, their clientele has reciprocated.
We have previewed many fabulous homes and before I left my post as the Editor of MLiving, I thought we’d take a look at my home.
