Saugatuck house description

Follow the path to this enchanting new award winning “cottage”. With charm, color and impeccable attention to detail - you will feel you have stepped into your own modern fairytale. This thoughtfully planned out three bedroom, three and one half bathroom layout offers plenty of room and privacy for everyone. Located “On the Hill” in Saugatuck, this desirable location is sure to fulfill all your vacationing needs. The splendid views of the gothic church across the street complete the storybook feel of this destination.

Color, warmth and natural light are found throughout the two stories with a full lower level. On the main levelyou will find a modern and spacious kitchen which is a cooks dream. Enjoy your meals in the adjacent dining area with seating for 6. The comfortable living room with a gas stove fireplace encourages quiet relaxation and stimulating conversation with family and friends. The lower level family room offers a large flat screen TV/DVD for additional entertainment. Those who want a little more solitude will find the loft tucked away on the second level to be the perfect escape.

The three bedrooms, each with a Queen bed are thoughtfully positioned, one on each floor offering plenty of privacy for all guests. The upper level Master Suite offers a private bath with his/hers sinks, large tub for soaking and beautiful tile/stone walk-in shower. There is also a large private balcony - perfect for that morning cup of coffee or cocktail in the evening while watching the locals stroll by. A main floor guest room has a Queen bed and private full bath with a tub/shower. The third guest room is on the lower level and offers a Queen bed. A full bath with a walk-in shower is accessible from the hall. Beautiful tile and stonework is found throughout all levels of the home.

The character and charm of inside continues once you step outside. Surrounded by a picture perfect picket fence, it’s as if you are in your own little haven. Imagine starting your day on the front porch with the paper, evenings grilling and hanging out on the comfortable lounge patio and wrapping up with a crackling fire under the stars gathered around the built-in fire pit area. Great amenities and a convenient location to downtown Saugatuck (2 blocks) and only a short 5-7 minute drive to immaculate area beaches such as Douglas Beach and Oval Beach. Those wanting to complete Grimm’s tale with their own walk thru the forest should be sure to explore.

                  Located 'on the hill' in Saugatuck, Michigan. Property is a 3 block walk to the quaint shops and fabulous restaurants in downtown Saugatuck. Cottage is located across the street from historic and gothic All Saints Episcopal Church. Quiet and convenient location! Walk to town to take the chain ferry to other side of Kalamazoo Lake and walk up to award-winning Oval Beach. Drive to Oval Beach is approximately 4 miles. Fun activities, theatre, art, nightlife, water sports, boating, golf and Saugatuck State Park are all nearby.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: I'm a Chicago native and spend as many weekends in Saugatuck as I can while not working in the city. Saugatuck is so magical!

                  Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
                  The property was the garden for the farmhouse to the north. One visit and I was sold. There are many plantings that are over 60 years old. The former owner/artist/gardener constructed a stone wall on the property with stones he gathered by hand all over Michigan. The home was built in 2011 and won the Saugatuck Historical Society's Preservation Award for New Construction. It is a huge honor to receive this recognition.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Beautiful view of historic gothic church across the street. Lower and upper porches for hanging out. Fire pit for gathering around for nightly relaxing and conversation. 1st and 2nd floor bedrooms are en-suite and staggered on each level to optimize privacy.
