About the Property
House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
This ultra clean home completed in 2005 has a quiet private beach and a grand terrace overlooking Lake Michigan where you can enjoy outdoor dining with the large four burner gas grill, enjoy a Lake Michigan sunset or simply watch your family play a game of badminton on the lawn.
First floor: The expanse of Lake Michigan is your backdrop as you first enter this home and take in the wall of windows that separate the outdoor terrace and views of Lake Michigan from the great room and adjoining kitchen. Hickory wood beams on the two storied cathedral ceiling adorn the great room which hosts a cozy wood burning stone fireplace, 42” plasma television, cable and on-demand video service, DVD player and an indoor/outdoor stereo system complete with multi-disk CD player. The fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, gas stove and oven, microwave, garbage disposal, double door refrigerator/freezer, wine cooler) boasts a family-sized dining table in addition to kitchen-island seating with spectacular views all around. A full sized washer and dryer are located in the laundry room. There is a powder room and private office complete with laser printer. The first floor master bedroom suite has a king sized bed, indoor/outdoor stereo system, remote controlled ceiling fan & lights, and French doors leading out to the terrace. The adjoining private master bathroom includes a large shower, separate sinks and a whirlpool bathtub.
Second floor: There are four bedrooms, a video gaming area and extra large bathroom with separate shower/toilet and double sink areas. Two bedrooms have phenomenal Lake Michigan views with glass/French doors leading to an outdoor shared balcony. These bedrooms are furnished with double and queen sized beds, respectively. The third very spacious bedroom is furnished with a king sized bed. The fourth bedroom is furnished with a trundle bed and can be outfitted with a toddler bed and/or crib for younger children. All upstairs bedrooms have remote control ceiling fans/lights and blackout shades.
Beach: The 150 foot private beach is accessed by a staircase directly across Lakeshore Drive (a one lane road) in front of our home. Beach stairs zigzag down a bluff to the sand via four separate landings hosting viewpoint seating. Beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys and beach towels are provided. There are two kayaks, two life vests and an assortment of inflatable rafts & boogie boards for use on the beach. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off beach sand located on the side of the house.
Toys: There are two adult and two youth-sized bicycles, a portable outdoor fire pit, croquet, badminton, whiffle ball and other assorted toys for use.
Fun within five miles: 1 mile to Downtown Douglas, 2 miles to Downtown Saugatuck, fine dining, art galleries, shopping, u-pick orchards and farms (blueberry, raspberry, peach, apple), dune buggy rides, wine tasting, golfing, sailing, boating, antiquing, live theater/music, film festival, hands-on art barn (mosaics, ceramics, fused glass jewelry making for all ages), state/local hiking trails/parks/beaches (Mt.
