Property description

The Oakland North is a historic landmark building which was built in 1927 and originally known as Mendelson's Oakland Hotel. In the 1970's it was converted into two separate residences and the north half provides over 2200 square feet of sun soaked living space. There are four spacious bedrooms (two queen beds, one full bed and the fourth bedroom has two sets of twin bunk beds) with two completely remodeled full baths.

The Oakland North has been impeccably maintained and boasts all of the original architectural details of a bygone era including ten foot high ceilings, arched double hung windows with true divided lights, original oak hardwood flooring on the entire first floor, stain grade millwork trim throughout with operable transom vents above the second floor bedroom doors. The feeling of the home is truly unique and feels as if you are in a historic turn of the century beach house. The finishes, fixtures and furnishings all add to the overall casual relaxed feeling and remind you that you are 'away from it all'.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are parents of four young children. We wanted a beach house to escape from the hustle and bustle and focus on family.

Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
Historic Monroe Park is our neighborhood which is directly adjacent to the North Beach on South Haven's North Shore. The key to this location is there are no huge hills nor endless staircases to climb up and down when going to and from the beach. Kind of an important thing to remember with small children and grandparents who want to join you down at the waters edge. Remember… 'Location. Location. Location.'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy the easy access to the North Beach as well as the less than ten minute walk to downtown South Haven. Once the groceries are purchased, there is no need for your car again. Even if you do need something from the store, you can walk two blocks to North Side Memories which is a small, privately owned convenience store and deli. We have said it so many times but it is true... once you cross the draw bridge, it feels as though all of life's struggles seem to be lifted. We hope you are able to experience the same feeling!
