About Alex D.
We live in in Chicago, and have been going to Saugatuck each summer for the past several years, really enjoy what Saugatuck can offer year-around. We are a family of four, with two kids. Our parents like to come along and also we like to spend time with other families.
Why Alex D. chose Saugatuck / Douglas
One of the main questions we had was if we wanted to be in town or on the beach. When we came to Saugatuck, we found that we would go to the beach 4-5 times a week, but we would come into town multiple times a day, so the decision was easy. The property is in a great location - quiet neighborhood yet a short walk to town. Also we wanted a place that could fit two families, with multiple kids each, plus one or two sets of parents, or a nanny.
What makes this house unique
The 4,500 SF house accommodates several groups and allows privacy as well as shared space. It is much newer than the vast majority of homes available in Saugatuck; and it is configured with 4 desks and premium internet service for those folks that can't stay unplugged from work for too long.
