The Sanctuary is an award winning, carefully master planned single family new home development located in Perrysburg, Ohio. The property is situated high upon the most historic part of the Maumee River in Northwest Ohio. It's the site where peaceful Indian tribal councils were held. The Sanctuary is just 20 minutes from downtown Toledo, the Ohio Turnpike and Toledo Express Airport and about one hour from Detroit International Airport.

The development hosts several unique communities. Each Sanctuary community has remarkable qualities, where you're close to the best of everything -- yet far enough away to be joined by deer as you stroll on the wooded walking paths. Named for its peaceful environment, The Sanctuary is in a world by itself, with its warm meadows, densely wooded secluded areas and natural ravines. Combine breath-taking views of the tumbling rapids of the Maumee River, The Sanctuary is like no other development, period.

But its ambiance doesn't end there. Picturesque ponds and fresh crystal clear brooks only add to the peaceful surroundings.

A rolling winding riverside road leads to the community where the drives are private and the homes, elegant. The sanctuary is 373 acres of divine living where you'll find parklike lots to host up to 11,000 plus square foot homes.

Within the community, you'll find several areas to build The Sanctuary, Sanctuary on the River, Sanctuary Meadows (sold out), Sanctuary in the Woods and the exclusive, Sanctuary in the Abbey. We are now selling our estate sized prime property within The Sanctuary in The Sanctuary in the Woods and Sanctuary in the Abbey.

The Sanctuary is owned by Retreat Associates. We are a group of dedicated professionals who care about developing land for its future homeowners, as well as keeping the environment in mind. The group was formed to purchase a preserve of the former Divine Word Seminary, located three miles southwest of Perrysburg, off West River Road and along the scenic rolling terrain of the Maumee River valley. The seminary had been used as an educational training center, complete with dormitories for priesthood. By purchasing this land, we gave our solemn promise to do everything possible to maintain the original beauty and natural environment, and we have.

Our vision was to design a residential development with curving roads and ponds to protect the natural beauty of the woods, water and rolling valleys. In keeping with the area's natural beauty, an architectural control committee approves every home design to assure the continue quality and natural environment of this community.

Nearly 200 years ago, William Henry Harrison and his troop of 1,200 spoiled the British and Indian siege of a supply outpost known as Fort Meigs. It was a major victory for the Americans during the War of 1812, and it is still celebrated by the people of Perrysburg today.

Now this land is home to award winning schools, a historic downtown, modern commercial districts, all while never losing its hometown charm.

Perrysburg is also a popular tourist destination. From the largest reconstructed fortification in North American to the quaint Victorian buildings of old downtown, the city has plenty to entertain history buffs and vacationers alike.
