Property description

This historic cottage has been fully renovated by Saugatuck's premier builder . It sits on a half acre of woods and gardens and the owner also owns the 1/2 acre of woods behind with wandering paths to a pond. All this and you can still (0.8 miles) walk to all the restaurants, shopping and art galleries. it features an open floor plan with a new galley kitchen. It has the original footed tub, a screened in back porch that faces the gardens and woods and a hot tub for two. it occupies a 1 and 1/2 parcel with the 150 year old house where the owners live, but has been designed to give you full privacy from the main house. The cottage itself is surrounded by woods, fields and the old farm outbuildings. The owners are available if you need advice on things to do but only have interaction with renters if you initiate it. This is your chance to enjoy a historic location with modern amenities and none of the hassles of ownership !

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Bart and Billy grew up on the beaches of the east coast but moved to Chicago 20 years ago. We have always missed the laid back vibe of the old East coast beach towns and when we discovered Saugatuck we felt we had found a place to reconnect to our roots and moved here.

Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck, MI, USA:
Vivian is a 120 year old, newly renovated cottage that is adjacent to an old orchard and is set back from the road in a meadow with a back porch that overlooks a wooded preserve.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is the last property on the north end of town, yet still feels part of the town of Saugatuck while offering privacy. While the main house is next door, we have designed the property for complete privacy,
