About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
The view from the beautiful backyard overlooks the park, tennis court , and basketball court below, and looks across the Kalamazoo River to Mt. Baldhead .
Known as the house with the porch , Heathcote has a beautiful front porch complete with table and chairs off the kitchen for your morning coffee, and an incredible screened in porch for cocktails, eating, reading , or just relaxing .
Heathcote has two bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. These bedrooms share a full , newly remodeled bath complete with original claw foot tub and walk in shower.
Off the kitchen is an additional bedroom know as the bunky , with a full size bed and detached bath with shower. This section of the house is cottage quirky ( but most guests love it ) . This bedroom is not for small children because it is far from the master .
The living room, dining room and kitchen are remodeled , and all the original wood floors redone .
Heathcote's porches and yard are great for summer enjoyment. There is even a separate beer fridge ! Great location for kids with the tennis court , basketball court , and park steps away.

- Heathcote has an incredible location; the park and playground, the tennis courts, and the basketball court are all within steps of the beautiful big backyard. You can walk to all the shops and restaurants, as well as to the ferry that takes you across to the Oval Beach road. As the 6th generation of my family who helped found Saugatuck, I am proud to be restoring this beautiful historic house, and we hope you will enjoy and respect the history of it as well....moreless
