Douglas house description

Nestled at the end of a private street in a wooded surrounding, but only 2 blocks from downtown Douglas is the setting for this perfect vacation getaway. The home was custom built to resemble the 4-Square style homes of the early 1900's and was constructed with quality materials and features custom millwork and 9 foot ceilings throughout. The home has an open floor plan ideal which is ideal for entertaining. An in-ground pool, gourmet kitchen, screened-in porch, and 2 living spaces provide ample space for family or friends to gather together.

Sleeping Accommodations: The home features 5 bedrooms. There are three bedrooms on the second floor including a large master bedroom suite with soaking tub and walk-in shower. The other two bedrooms are nicely appointed with queen beds and share a full bath with tub/shower. The third floor is a huge open bedroom with it's own 1/2 bath. This room has 4 twin beds each situated in their own nook. The fifth bedroom is very large and is located in the lower level of the home. It's en suite with it's own bathroom complete with walk-in shower and double vanity.

Wonderfully Furnished: The walnut-stained hardwood floors throughout (although the bedrooms have carpet) against the backdrop of the all white walls, make for a cool cottage feel. The house is furnished in an eclectic mix of modern furnishings and cool vintage pieces coupled with fun artwork. The kitchen features Kitchen-Aid Chef Series stainless steel appliances with gas cooks range, convection oven & warming drawer, granite countertops, large island and custom painted cabinetry welcome any cook. A walk-thru butler's pantry has butcher-block countertops and stainless bar sink. The custom built farm table seats 10-12 for dinner with room for another 4 at the island. The living room has 2 large modern slip-covered sofas plus 2 custom upholstered chairs and is a wonderful place to congregate. The screened-in porch features an outdoor dining table that seats 8+ as well as a lounging area - perfect for reading a book, checking emails, or watching the activities in the pool. The lower level media room has an unbelievably comfy sectional to hang out in & watch movies or the big game.

Backyard Oasis: The newly built custom swimming pool (heated of course) is the center piece of the backyard. This 30 foot by 13 foot 'plunge' pool ranges in depth from 4-4.5' deep. Integrated stairs with custom 5' x 7' tanning ledge (covered in 3 inches of water) make for a great place to hang-out. A large custom concrete patio surrounds the pool area and is the perfect place to lounge in the sun. In addition, there's a great custom patio area steps from the pool with wonderful seating area perfect for cocktails and extended conversations. For the sports-minded guests, there's also a cool outdoor ping pong table perfect for a little one-on-one or doubles competition. The fun outdoor shower and bbq complete the backyard oasis.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  This wonderful home is tucked away on a private street in downtown Douglas, MI and is only 2 blocks from the center of this charming town. One can easily walk to the many unique shops, galleries, restaurants, grocery store and even the cool bowling alley just down the street - In fact, you don't even need for car!. There are two amazing public beaches in town which are only a short drive away. The Douglas beach is exactly one mile due west and the famous Saugatuck/Oval beach is a short 1.5 mile drive. If you're on that vacation mode and not up for driving there, the Saugatuck/Douglas Inter Urban bus will take you to the beach for a buck!
