The Arboretum at Pier Cove is located on 60 acres of natural dense forest, with private access to the nature conservatory created by landscape architect O.C. Simons and beach access to the Lake Michigan shores for select sites.
Intended to be a recreational community of homes desgned by Chicago Architect Dan Sutherland, each residence will be uniquely crafted to support the lifestyle of its owners, while adding to the overall beauty of the landscape concept. The community will be a combination of private properties and common spaces, providing a recreational setting throughout the community.
Roughly two hours from Chicago and three hours from Detroit on the Western Michigan coast, the site is nestled between Saugatuck (the summer home of The Art Institute of Chicago) and South Haven.
The vision of The Arboretum at Pier Cove is like no other. The combination of larger lots and common property, provide privacy and the opportunity to explore this beautiful untouched piece of nature. The landscape plan is designed to preserve the natural integrity of this wooded retreat, by letting the trees and topography dictate site locations.
Each home design is intended to use a consistent palate of natural materials throughout the site to achieve an overall level of uniformity, while striving for creativity and diversity in each design.
The land has been hand cleared to reveal a rich natural beauty and is available for casual inspections. Phase 1 has been sold and reservations are being accepted for the next lots available.
Nearby Saugatuck has been recently rated among the top five art and beach communities in the country, and its marina is one of the finest on the Great Lakes.
