Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Suttons Bay, Michigan

By MidModMichelle

Howdy folks, are you enjoying the first weekend of fall? It’s still hotter than blazes here, so it’s hard not to think about hitting the beach! Speaking of, if you like gorgeous lake beaches (and who doesn’t?!) this incredible home is situated on a bay of Lake Michigan in a serene and picture perfect area. After spending time in that area for various field schools as a grad student, I absolutely love it there. And this home y’all! It’s fabulous, and I bet it’s architect-designed even though there was no mention of one. Are you ready to check it out?

This home is located at 12570 E Hendryx Dr, Suttons Bay, Michigan on a gorgeous peninsula lakeside lot in a prestigious area. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2,682 square foot home built in 1970 that is being offered at $2,450,000. The listing is courtesy of Mark Hagan at Coldwell Banker Real Estate. For more information and additional photos you can check out the listing here. From the listing:

Exclusive Peninsula Estate at the very end of Lee Point with expansive, private Lake Michigan Waterfront. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a home in this ultra prestigious, private location that is on the market for the first time since originally being platted 60 years ago. Located on the end of the point, you have breathtaking sunrise & sunset, Power Island, Old Mission Peninsula, and Traverse City views. Deep water moor your sailboat, swim, fish, and kayak, like you are living at your own private resort. A property of this caliber with sugar sand beach, crystal blue water, and this amount of privacy is rare to find anywhere in the world. Vintage interior with custom Redwood & Teak throughout has a stylish & timeless Mid Century Modern feel and is an Architect’s, Artist’s, Writer’s, or Designer’s dream. A very special layout in a superb location. Paradise.




(The main living area is stunning!)

(CALDER MOBILE Y’ALL!!!! If that’s genuine it could be worth as much as the house!)


(Lovely original cabinets & look at that dishwasher!)

(That built-in buffet!!! 😍)


(I wish our master had a view like that. Dang.)


(Fun wallpaper in the bathrooms!!)


(WHOA that is a gorgeous view!!!)

I’m definitely WOWED by this one, although that’s to be expected with another multi-million dollar property. I can’t imagine having the kind of income that would allow me to purchase in that range, but a girl can dream! I only have my usual complaints about updated faucets, flooring, and some appliances- easy fixes. I’d buy it in a heartbeat if I could! What do y’all think?

    The amount of light provided by the clerestory windows is outstanding. I’d empty out all of the furniture and start over with period-appropriate pieces. What fun that would be!

    Wow. I could move right in. The only things I see that don’t appeal to me are the bathroom wallpapers and the fact that the oven and range are not builtins.
