I love this property - designed it for myself. The decor was designed with a 'zero footprint' objective in mind. Most materials were acquired from a program called "Reclaim Detroit" which dismantles old homes in the city, salvages the wood, fixtures, bricks and even doorknobs for repurposing. Examples: We used solid maple flooring from a high school gymnasium - countertops from a high school Science lab, a kitchen sink reclaimed from a restaurant and even a 1920's doorknob from Detroit's Book Cadillac Hotel.
My objective was aesthetically pleasing 'tree hugger style.' :-) The furniture is high end - purchased at estate sales There's a Danish teak desk, Lloyd Flanders living room furniture (made in Michigan) and African artwork, including original oil paintings.
Spotless, newly decorated - the place is located a very short (1 mile) bike ride to Lake Michigan's Douglas Beach. 900 sq. ft. One bedroom - a second full bed, adjacent to the living room. Two baths. Large private deck which is colorfully furnished, completely surrounded by pine trees and adorned with plants and flowers.
When I'm searching rentals, the first thing I check is the reviews. We don't have any on this property because 2018 is the first year we've rented it. We do, however, have reviews on our other two rental properties. In case you'd like to check, to see how we do things - here are the property numbers for our other rentals: One is next door to this 3651848. The other is much larger and located on the other side of town at Kingfisher Cove. That listing number is 4860300.
Saugatuck is the 'Art Coast', so we have decorated all our rentals with original artwork in every room - pieces we have collected on travels to Australia and various countries in Africa and Asia.
Bonus! We own property on 'The Hill' in Saugatuck. Our renters are welcome to park there and walk the few blocks to downtown Saugatuck.
During the evening, come home and relax in your 6 person hot tub, while you watch the fireflies and listen to bell practice, provided by your next door neighbors at the beautiful Douglas Community Church.
