Authenticity & Quality
Why is it that people choose to live in an area like Saugatuck Douglas? No matter who is responding to the question, the answer will include such features as the feel of small town America, traditional architecture and buildings that seem to fit the rural village environment; a landscape still dominated by natural wooded spaces and punctuated by working farms, orchards, farmhouses and barns. All of this within easy distance to the Kalamazoo River and the beaches and dune land of Lake Michigan

The Sanctuary is carefully designed to fit into and enhance the traditional character at the area. It is a human scale neighborhood that provides at once an environment that you and a group of like minded owners can care about and a sense of optimism about the future that good design, conservation and easy living can happily coexist

Enter the graceful, curving roadway onto a lane that is like a path in the woods. A path that tames the automobile and begins the sense of peace the moment you pass the understated entry. You know right away that the central focus of the Sanctuary is the comfort of living in a natural wooded setting. You have arrived at a place that is tucked in the woods and fully connected to the beauty of Michigan's changing seasons. The houses are all situated to provide maximum exposure to the unspoiled woodland that will be maintained in perpetuity.

Richard Meckley

Richard Meckley, an award winning designer, has over twenty-five years experience in designing and building custom houses in Michigan. Over his career Richard has demonstrated the ability to listen carefully to his clients and to translate their wants, needs and wishes into a finished product that is an accurate expression of the clients' Intentions.

At the Sanctuary Richard is continuing a long held ambition to turn a sharp attention to detail and strong commitment to design to the task of harmonizing a modem project with the traditional rural-village character of the Saugatuck-Douglas area. In order to evoke the feeling of small town, rural America, to design “fit” with the local landscape and to show a respect for the origins of the land, Richard has conceived a variety of styles and floor plans especially for the Sanctuary's thickly wooded site. "I wanted to be certain that the style and scale of these cottages touched a chord !n the hankering people seem to have to reconnect with our type of small low, rural atmosphere I want our owners to feel trey have come home to a peaceful., comfortable sanctuary all their own.'

The Houses

Authenticity and quality are the bywords of the Richard Meckley homes at the Sanctuary. From the variety of traditional exterior designs and architectural details there is nothing that resembles the throwaway aesthetic that is so easy to find elsewhere.

The interior is planned to meet the requirements of modem living. The main gathering area is an open concept living room, dining area and kitchen which open to a large screened porch that brings the outside in and expands the living area in warm weather. The master bedroom is set well apart from the guest bedrooms and their bath. The full basement provides room for additional living area and the storage ability to live year round.

People who prize this kind of environment will appreciate the care to make the homes energy efficient • neither space nor resources are wasted at the Sanctuary.
