Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: At the time the house was purchased in 2002 the house was in poor shape and needed serious improvement. During the reconstruction papers were found dating back to 1872 in the walls. At the time I was working in Law Enforcement, and I along with my wife we came in from the east side of the state almost every weekend until the house was finished for that first summer. Since I retired in 2011, I have begun my transition to fulfill what I set out to do and that was to reside in the town, be more hands on, available and accountable in providing my investments in the community as I did in my career. I am here more and I am enjoying the change of pace as to what was, and is now my town to enjoy.
Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
This home purchase was a great investment in an area that we fell in love with the town and the way of life. We enjoyed coming here ourselves, so we took the plunge not only to be used for others to enjoy but for our family too from time to time. The location was ideal located perfectly a three short blocks from downtown, four from the Lake, we parked and walked everywhere. It was a challenge to restore which was truly a labor of love. The plan was to set our roots and lay down the foundation for the future.
