Here are the basic features of the waterfront homes on the lake. The homes have two to four bedrooms, but most of them have three to four bedrooms. They have one and a half to five bedrooms. The majority of the lake homes were built between 1955 -2003. The homes range in size from 1200 square feet - 4000 square feet. The majority of the homes range from 1500-2200 square feet. All the homes are on sewer which helps the water quality of the lake.
The waterfront homes sit on .25 acres to 2 acres. The homes are not jammed together there is space between the homes. They have one to three car garages, most of them mainly have two to three car garages though there is one with a five car garage. Home styles are ranches, colonials, split levels, contemporary. The majority of homes have basements though there are a few that are on crawl spaces. Most of the homes are on wells or on municipal water.
There are about 36 lakefront home on Davis Lake in Oxford Township Michigan. The homes on Spezia and Tanview are what I call subdivision homes. There are no old small lake cottages. The majority of the homes were built between the 1960's to 1980's. There are no big lake luxury lake estate homes on the lake.
Davis Lake is a private non all sports lake that is 29 acres in size. The lake they say averages about 13 feet deep. It lies entirely in Oxford Township. The children on the lake go to the award winning Oxford schools.
The roads around the lake are paved. There are no condominiums on the lake only single family residences. There is no marina, no state approved water ski course, no public beach, and no public DNR launch.
On the waters of Davis lake, Oxford township, Oakland county, it is unlawful to operate a motorboat so it's going to be a no wake lake. You just cannot paddle fast enough to cause a wake. (LOL) It is a round lake. I don't know the deepest spot in the lake. It's not big enough to be an all sports lake anyway.
Davis Lake is a lake that is ideal for fishing because there is no boating pressure. It's a small lake but I hear the fishing is excellent for panfish. There was a three pound eight ounce crappie caught on the lake back in 2011. Many lake home buyers like small lakes that are not all sports lake. They buy on these lakes because they like the calming, peaceful feeling of a lake. They do not buy on an all sports lake because they do not want noisy boats or jet skis racing around. They are perfectly happy with the peace and quiet. They are happy to paddle around on a kayak, canoe, row boat, or paddleboard. They are happy to watch the wildlife that comes down to the lake.
The lake is spring fed. There are no canals on the lake. If you are looking for a smaller lake and really do not care about racing around the lake then Davis Lake may be for you.
Davis Lake is located off Tanview Lake. It lies south of Seymour Lake Road and west of M-24. It is about a mile from downtown Oxford. So you can get to downtown Oxford and eat dinner or shop. Lake Orion is just a short ride south of Oxford. You can also get to I-75 if you head south on M-24.
As you can see from the pictures of Davis Lake how peaceful and quiet the lake is. I would say the fishing is good because of the natural areas on the lake and the low boating pressure. I am sure when the geese, or the ducks come in it's a wonderful sight. That is just one of the many things you will love about lake living. Watching the weather change on the lake is neat too. I love the change of weather in the fall. I like watching the mist rise off the lake when the water is warmer than the air. Or when the fog rolls off the lake. One minute you can't see the other side of the lake and then slowly everything starts to appear. That is some of the special moments of lake living that you will treasure.
