Hi, I'm Frank!
The Reason We decided to buy this property:
Frank and his wife Mary Ann live with their two children Amanda and Brett in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. Frank is an architect and runs a residential remodeling business. After selling a 2 flat that the couple owned in Chicago, they decided to reinvest in a property they could rent and also enjoy themselves. The property had undergone many changes through the different owners with numerous additions and remodels. After the first summer of ownership in 2001 the couple decided to make better use of the yard space surrounding the cottages. Where previously there were many overgrown shrubs and you could drive almost right up to the front door, it was felt that the cars should be kept closer to Schaffner St. On OUR web - site LakesideBeachHouseCOM (Sorry this site does not allow clickable links) we have floor plans and a site plan so you can see exactly how everything lays out. This allowed the the remaining yard space to be laid out better for the pool, decks, spa, brick patios and landscaping improvements.
The beach. It is all about the beach. The texture of the sand. The clear lake Michigan water. The sounds of the waves. and the most incredible sunsets. I have been to allot of beaches in allot of places from Florida to California and I can tell you all things considered, ours is the best. The water is clean, no salt, no rocks, no dead sea life. Just great sand, sun and water warm enough for a refreshing swim. It is amazing how much pleasure you can experience from something so simple. The laid back atmosphere and the fact that the house is such a short walk to the beach (200 yards, yes I walked it off) only made it more appealing. A business client had talked about how much she enjoyed her summer getaways to New Buffalo and how nice it was to have a place in such a peaceful setting yet within a reasonable drive. We had no idea that we would become one of her neighbors. We did not find this out
