About Nick Agnew
We bought our Saugatuck property- 'Shorewood'- because of it's tranquil and wooded locale near Lake Michigan. We built and designed our 'Shorewood' house in such a way that would comfortably accommodate large family gatherings. 'Shorewood' which sits near the beach and towns of Saugatuck and Douglas, represents to us the best that the area has to offer.
Nick Agnew purchased this house in 2006
Why Nick Agnew chose Saugatuck / Douglas
We bought this beautiful Saugatuck property because of it's perfect combination of tranquility when trying to get away from the stresses of everyday life, while still being able to be active in both athletics and cultural activities. Saugatuck has a very urbane charm to it, without the noise and the crowds of a major metro area. Our property is located in the most tranquil spot, near the sugar sand Lake Michigan shoreline. We built a house that we felt that not only our family could enjoy year round, but also, would be an ideal space for extended family or other large families or groups who could gather comfortably. Our house is in a private enclave, that has the Lake in the front end, and the peaceful woods in the back. Saugatuck constantly surprises us with it's diversity; ranging from the magnificent sunsets over Lake Michigan (right out our front door!), to the sugar sand beaches; to the Art Barn where our children, on a rainy day, can get make their own artwork...and it does not end there!
What makes this house unique
The beach! The sugar sand that squeaks when you walk on it. The dunes at the beach. The amazingly clean and beautiful, warm, Lake Michigan water during the summer. The sunsets! The summer! The Fall, when the leaves change and you can go apple picking! The endless running on beach/roads and/or the endless biking on roads...right out the front door. The safety and quiet of living on a private road in a private enclave with no traffic or noise. The short bike or drive to downtown Saugatuck or Douglas for food, culture, shopping, antiquing, or just strolling. The locale of house with fire pit, hot tub (and outdoor shower), and wildlife surrounding property. The airy and open layout, that our 4000 square foot home offers families and groups on trips.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had such a wonderful stay at the Saugatuck Beach Home. The house was
amazing* bright, spacious, and very comfortable with all the amenities.
Very clean home and well maintained property. The great room was large enough to accommodate our group for meals and conversation. And the kids loved the rec room in the lower level where they played table tennis and lounged on the sectional for movies. We loved how private and tranquil it was in the house and on the grounds. The beach went on for miles and the sand was the best. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi and had excellent campfires out back after long days on the beach. We definitely will be back!
