South Haven house description

The Brockway Beach House is a unique home that was originally constructed in the late 1920's as the communal entertaining, dance hall and dining commissary for a community of surrounding sleeping cottages. This amazing two level home was completely and painstakingly restored in 2009 with meticulous attention to details and care. All new plumbing, electric, mechanical, etc. systems were installed including central air conditioning. There are three bedrooms and three full baths on the main level. The upper level has a family room and bunk bed alcoves that accommodates another six guests in beds. There is also a fourth full bath on the upper level. Original hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, large front patio. This home is great for both outdoor and indoor entertaining and is only a short walk to South Haven's Oak Street Beach.

The home is available for weekends in the off season and weekly only from Saturday after 3:00 P.M. through Saturday before 10:00 A.M. between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

                  The Brockway Beach House is located three doors east of Park Avenue on the South side of Brockway Avenue. If you look at a satellite photo, it is the house with the red roof. The closest beach is Oak Street Beach located at Oak Street and North Shore Drive. According to the internet, this is .3 miles and takes only six minutes to walk there. Walk west on Brockway Avenue to North Shore Drive. Turn left (south) on north shore drive and proceed to Oak Street. Turn left (west) into parking lot and proceed to beach.

                  The heart of downtown South Haven is located at Phoenix Road and Center Streets. According to the internet, this is 1.1 miles from the Brockway Beach House and takes approximately twenty minutes. This is a very nice walk through a beautiful residential neighborhood, over a draw bridge and past many small retail shops along the way.

                  Simply the best location!!!

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About: We live in Chicago and love the big city life however we also love the peace of the slower pace of a Midwestern small town. There is an undeniable magic that permeates through South Haven, Michigan. We simply can not say enough about it. Any time of year is a great time to be in South Haven!

                  Why South Haven:
                  We love the history and the architecture of this house. It is one of the few remaining structures of a bygone era of this resort community. There are many new beautiful beach homes in and around South Haven. We feel that very few have the architectural character of the Brock way Beach House!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The location is simply the best. The Brock way Beach House is close enough to walk everywhere you want to go however far enough away from the congestion and commotion that can at times accompany the summer art fairs and beach crowds.
