Sears Lake has many different type os homes. There are old cottages that have become year round homes and there are newer bigger brick homes too. Big, small, newer, older. Almost all types of homes. Would any of Sears Lake homes fit you and your family?
Some homes sit up on a hillside with great lake views and on the north side of the lake they are level with the lake. It all depends on whether you want to walk down stairs to the lake or if you have knee problems or issues with walking you can find a home without stairs. Many of the small homes are close together. Most homes sit on small lots though there are homes on 1, 1.4, 3.1, 3.91, and 7.13 acres. There is a variance of lake lots.
Sears Lake homes were built between the years of 1920 -2006. There are quite a few older homes not as many newer homes. Homes range from 700 square feet up to 3000 square feet. Most homes are on the smaller side under 2000 square feet. You will find all styles of homes from colonials, ranches, bungalows, cape cod, contemporary, to split level homes.
The homes have one to five bedrooms, one to three and a half bathrooms. Many of the small homes have no garages others have up to 4 car garages. Some Sears Lake waterfront homes have basements, some are on slabs and some are on crawl spaces. The homes are on well and septic. There is no nearby city water or sewers.
Sears Lake in Milford is a private non all sports lake that is about sixty acres in size. Sear Lake is just a small private lake that is very close to GM's Milford proving grounds. Even if it was an all sports lake it would not be big enough to really do tubing, waterskiing, or wakeboarding on. If you are looking for a lakefront home close to downtown Milford and to the proving grounds this may be the lake for you. You cannot walk to downtown Milford but it is just a short drive away. You can enjoy the stores, coffee shops, bars and restaurants of downtown Milford in just minutes away.
Here is the state DNR law for the lake. On the waters of Sears Lake, charter township of Milford, county of Oakland, state of Michigan, it is unlawful to operate a motorboat powered by any motor other that an electric trolling motor. For the purpose of this ordinance, a trolling motor is a portable, battery powered motor designed and intended for slow, quiet operation. So the lake is basically a no wake lake.
There are no canals on the lake though there are several streams that come into the lake. The lake is also spring fed. There is no public access or DNR launch boat launch site. The lake residents are very protective of who is on the lake. I have heard stories of non resident people trying to ice fish on the lake and being run off.
Of course there is no marina on the lake, no public beach, or water ski course on the lake. There are no condominiums on the lake. The streets around the lake are gravel and I would say at times the roads are a little bumpy. You do not have to worry about people speeding in front of your home. The school district for the children on the lake is Huron Valley Schools.
I hear the fishing is good on the lake, but that is not unusual. Private lakes with little or boating traffic usually have better fishing. If you move onto Sears Lake you can kayak, swim, paddleboard, canoe, or fish. Your children will never have to fear getting run over by a speed boat. They have fun on the lake without watching out for crazy jet skiers.
Sear Lake lies entirely in Milford Township in Oakland County. Sears Lake is north of General Motors Rd, East of Hickory Ridge Rd, and South of West Commerce Rd. The lake is east of the Proving Grounds and West of Downtown Milford. It is a few miles south of M-59.
Sears Lake is one of those lakes for people that have no desire to jet ski, or go fast in a boat. The lake is for people who want a peaceful life style but want the view of a lake. So many people want the calming, peaceful feeling of water. They want to enjoy the different seasons on the lake, the want to watch the wildlife on the lake.
If you have never lived on a lake you may not understand all the benefits of lake living. It is an amazing way of life. Something about water that makes life so special. I live on White Lake which is an all sports lake and I understand why people want to live on a lake. I have a great job helping lake home buyers and I would not trade it for the world. I try to give back to my buyers and sellers every way I can. I do low priced commissions for my sellers so they can save thousands of dollars. For my home buyers I buy them a big gift that will help them in their new home. It's all about helping people and doing right by them. That is why I love my job and life. I have helped so many lake home buyers acheive their dreams, can I help you achieve yours?
