The gorgeous setting for Karen and Bob Lucas’ home in Pemberville offers serenity and their very own quarry. The family home was built several decades ago on land that was previously open to the public as Luckey Quarry. It has been lovingly expanded, through the years, taking care to maintain its original charm and history.

The kitchen was repurposed with beams from the original dwelling and is the state-of-the-art headquarters for the many outdoor dinners held under the delightful pergola. The property features painted scenes on the barn, and throughout the house.

The columned home and gardens are situated completely open to the quarry with a view that is absolute heaven. A fun addition is the original quarry snack shack repurpos ed as a 1950’s hideaway.
