Homes for sale Long Lake Stringy Lakes Oxford MI

Homes for sale Long Lake Oxford MIHere is some information on the homes that sit on the lake.  Like so many of Stringy Lakes you are going to find the homes and neighborhood well kept.  Stringy Lakes homes are more like a normal subdivision.  Not a lot of junk such as trailers, snowmobiles and other unsightly junk laying around.  Long Lake homes are well kept. 

There are about 25 homes on Long Lake in Oxford Township.Like I said it is more of a subdivision lake.  The majority of the homes are what I would call average size.  They range from 800 square feet to over 4100 square feet.  Most of the homes look similar.....more brick homes.  Though there are some homes that are the older lake cottages. Here are the characteristics of the lake homes.

The the styles are mainly ranches, colonials, and contemporary homes.  They have two to five bedrooms, two to three and a half bathrooms.  Built during the years 1934 -1977. Some lake homes are on slab, crawl spaces but a few of them are have walk out basements.  Some of the lake homes have no garages and some have up to 2 car garages.

Info on Long Lake Stringy Lakes Oxford MI 

Long Lake is part of the Stringy Chain of Lakes in Oxford Township in Oakland County MI.  It is a public all sports lake because you can access the string of lakes via a public DNR launch on Squaw Lake.  It is a large DNR access too....there are 55 parking spaces which is a large amount of parking spots considering the total acreage of all the Stringy Lakes is only 164 acres.  Long Lake is 34.5 acres in size and 51 feet deep in the deepest spot.

There are no wake restrictions on the lake.  The maximum speed for jet skis and boats is 40 MPH.  There is no public beach, no marina on the lake, no condominiums and no state approved water ski course.  The lake is spring fed and I believe part of the Paint Creek watershed.  I believe Paint Creek flows into Michelson Lake and then into Tan Lake.               

The school district for the lake is Oxford Schools.  The homes on the lake are on both well and city water.  Most homes are on sewer.  The streets around the lake are paved and gravel.  The lots that the homes sit on are mainly smaller.  There are no big lots over an acre on Long Lake.    

Long Lake Stringy Lakes Oxford MILong Lake is part of the Stringy chain of lakes in Oxford Township.  Stringy Lakes Chain is a chain of interconnected lakes located one mile west of the Village of Oxford in northeast Oakland County, Michigan.  It connects to Squaw Lake, Tan Lake, Cedar Lake, Clear Lake, Sring Lake, and Michelson Lake.  None of the lakes are huge.  I would say the lakes are good for the occassion tuber or skier, but they are not big enough for anybody looking to do a lot of water sports. All of the lakes are long and skinny in size. 

There is a low bridge that connects some of the lakes but you cannot get a big boat through the bridge.  You can get a jet ski through but it is shallow and if you run the jet ski through you are going to suck up all sorts of pebbles.   Because of the bridge, the public is currently only able to access Squaw and Clear lakes.  Row boats, canoes, paddle boards, and kayaks can get thru under the bridge but nothing really bigger than that.  The public DNR launch site is on Squaw Lake and has 55 parking spots.

Sometimes you cannot tell where one lake begins and the other ends.  Even some of the lake home owners cannot tell you the different lakes and where they lie. Davis Lake is another nearby lake.

Location of Long Lake Stringy Lakes Oxford Michigan

Long Lake is just south of Seymour Lake Road and is about a mile west of downtown Oxford.

 Even though the Stringy Lakes are not big they are good for a leisurely cruise around the lakes.  If they decided to raise the bridge back up higher so pontoons can get under it.....it will be nice for lake residents to see more of the lakes.  

Stringy Lakes Oxford MIYou can probably count on two hands the number of Southeastern Michigan lakes that have a bar or restaurant on the lake.  Union Lake has the Matter of Taste restaurant on it.  Walled Lake has Bayside Restaurant on it.  White Lake has the White Lake Inn on it.  These are just some of the lakes that have a bar and restaurant on it.  There are not many lakes that do.  Years ago there used to be more, but many have burnt down or closed.  They tore them down to make way for homes.

Russ Ravary top Oxford real estate agents Do you want the convenience of having a place to eat on the lake?  If you are wondering how does a bar or restaurant affect the price of a lake home let me explain.  Again there is no specific dollar amount that you can add on for the restaurant on the lake feature.  It is a bonus to have a bar or restaurant on the lake.  But to say it adds dollars to your home, it really does not.  I just makes the lake a little more desirable and fun.  It is nice to go for a boat ride and be able to stop for quick meal if you do not feel like cooking.  Or if you want a cocktail it is always nice to stop and visit with people from the lake.

I have a cottage on White Lake and love having the White Lake Inn on the lake.  I love having the ability to take the pontoon up for a late night drink.  I like being able to run up for a pizza when Lisa doesn't want to cook.  It is a benefit for the lake.  So be sure to check out the local lakes that have bars and restaurants on them.  I know the lakes very well.  So if you need a realtor that can help you and explain what the different lakes are like.....give me a call on my cell (248) 310-6239.
