Property Watch: Before & After On Broadway

By Emily Tyra | June 20, 2022

Here is a peek inside Suttons Bay’s former “Bay House” a former hotel/horse livery at 306 W. Broadway ($754,800; MLS# 190127), which has been a work-in-progress for the last year and a half.

The 1874-era structure — one of the oldest residences in the village — was purchased in November 2020 “in need of deep love and attention,” according to the original listing

Now the 6 bedroom, 3.5 bath home on a 0.28-acre lot been renovated top to bottom, and is ready for a new owner. Jules Yates of Re/Max Bayshore notes that the zoning allows for a second auxiliary dwelling to be built on the parcel.

It’s nested in a bustling part of the village, steps from The Friendship Community Center, the post office, a nature preserve, and village watering holes and restaurants. Come winter, the ice rink is directly across the street.

Property Watch is sponsored By Venture Properties, whose active listings include a luxe log home on 118 feet of sandy Lake Michigan frontage.
