South Haven house description

This property includes TWO HOMES on the SAME CITY LOT. The first home is the main home. This is a beautiful, large, super-clean, newly renovated SIX bedroom home. The second home on the lot was originally a Carriage home that in 2010 was transformed into a 2 bedroom 'mother-in-law suite' with a full kitchen, 1 1/2 baths, and both bedrooms upstairs.
In the main home, there are 4 bedrooms and two full baths up, 2 bedrooms and a half bath, dining room, living room, and kitchen down. It sleeps 15 people in beds (4 queens and 7 twins). Additional area down (foyer) has double and single convertable beds. (Living room also has a double and single convertable beds), so it sleeps up to an additional 6 people in convertible beds. Beautiful beds and furniture throughout this house that, while newly renovated, maintains the character of the 100+ year-old home that it is. In 2009, the home was one of seven featured on the South Haven 'Hospice Home Tour,' a Christmas Holiday home tour featuring 5 or 6 historic South Haven homes that the community is invited to tour.
The home contains a nice covered front porch to sit and relax/people watch. Rear of home also has a covered deck to relax and grill.
The carriage home sits right behind the main home, and was actually the 'barn' where the horse carraiges were stored. It has been converted into a two-bedroom home. It has a full kitchen, half bath, and living area down, two bedrooms and a full bath up. It sleeps six in beds (a queen, two twins, and a double, most purchased new in 2013). It features a slider door out to a nice big deck for grilling or just hanging out, and a neat little balcony off of one of the upstairs bedrooms.
2 blocks from downtown, about five blocks to Lake Michigan (South Beach). View the fireworks from the upstairs balcony! Walk to all of the local restaraunts and taverns. Bike rentals located less than 200 yards away. Less than a quarter mile to Clementines, Tello's, Maria's, Captain Nemo's, Brick's Corner Pizza, and Thirsty Perch. Less than 1/2 mile to Idler, York's and Captain Lou's. It takes longer to drive downtown than to walk!
Owner lives on Pearl Street--one block east of this home. So if there are ever any questions or concerns, help is a mere few steps away!

                  Location

                  0.5 Miles
                  Nearest Beach
                  South Haven's famous 'South Beach'

                  This is a downtown location. You will have no reason to ever drive downtown for lunches, dinners, shopping, or a 'night on the town.' Some travelers choose to drive to the beach, however, rather than walk 1/2 mile to South Beach. Parking is plentiful at the beach and along the bluff, so walking or driving, it is quite convenient! If I'm booked at this home, or if you need another property plus this one to accommodate the size of your party, please check out my other listing on vrbo.com, number 513642

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: I live a stones-throw away from this house, and practice law in South Haven.

                  Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
                  There aren't many houses right in town that sleep 21 in beds, and another 6 in sleepers, with NO bunk beds!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Get two stand-alone homes located on the same lot right in town! Lots of groups choose to put the teens in the carriage home, or put mom and dad over there to let them have some peace and quiet! Whatever you choose to do, the setup is unique, and offers quite a bit of flexibility!
