Suttons Bay House
This beautiful, classic coastal home sits perched high above West Grand Traverse Bay with views of Old Mission Peninsula and south toward Traverse City. The owners picked this location so they could enjoy the magnificent waterfront views from almost every room in the house. Even the second floor master bedroom features a walkout balcony for enjoying exquisite sunrises. Another high design priority was the easy access to the boat from the office, so their love of the water could become a bigger part of their lives. The expansive porches that wrap around almost half the house are finished like indoor spaces, with beadboard paneled ceilings and Michigan field stone to create living spaces that make the outdoors blend seamlessly with the indoors. The living room and kitchen/dining room are separated by a see-through fireplace constructed of natural stone and one foot-square barn beams. Classic and comfortable.
