Property Watch: Dinners With A View In Suttons Bay

By Emily Tyra | June 4, 2021

This bright, airy family home (1964 N. Blue Water Court, Suttons Bay; $1,225,000; MLS #1884499) has charming, heirloom-quality details inside at every turn, but it’s the multiple outdoor living areas — including a covered front porch with a swing and dinner perch with bay views — that are the true head-turners.

The four-bedroom home sits on two acres with a panoramic view of Suttons Bay (the body of water, that is) and beyond to Grand Traverse Bay and Old Mission.

Blue Water Court is just off scenic, winding Jacobson Road, in the heart of wine country. Listing agent Robin Vilter of Coldwell Banker Schmidt-Leland says there are also 30 acres of forested and protected common land just for the owners on that street. “It is mostly wooded — with amazing fall color — and the plan is to have trails for hiking,” she says.
