Lakefront homes in Oakland County Michigan

Lakes in West Bloomfield MI

So what are West Bloomfield lakes like?  If you are not familar with West Bloomfield Michigan you may not know that the community itself is what I would call a pretigious city in Metro Detroit.  What I mean by that is that many home buyers want to live in West Bloomfield MI because of the cities characteristics and benefits that the township offers.  Some of the best features of the township are:

  • Excellent top ranked school system
  • Centrally located in Oakland County with easy highway access
  • Low crime
  • Good city services
  • Wide variety of mid level homes to luxury estates

There are so many beautiful lakes in West Bloomfield MI.  You will find small lakes with condos on them and you will find bigger all sports lakes with luxury lakefront estates on them.  Lake home buyers have so many choices in West Bloomfield.

 West Bloomfield lake homes

  There are not that many lakes in West Bloomfield so lake homes & lake properties are at a premium.  There are very few all sports lakes in West Bloomfield too. 

  • Cass Lake only lies in part of the township.  Waterford is on the other side.
  • Union Lake
  • Upper Straits Lake lies in part of the township.  Orchard Lake Village is on the other side
  • Walnut Lake
  • Pine Lake
  • Middle Straits Lake

 Lake front homes Pine Lake West Bloomfield MI

The first five of these lakes are the most highly sought after by affluent luxury home buyers.  You will see many luxury lakefront estates on these lakes.  Many smaller homes have been torn down to make way for bigger, new, luxury lake mansions.  I just recently heard of a lakefront lot in West Bloomfield where they tore down a $600,000 lake home to put up a new luxury lake house. On some of these lakes you will pay a 25% -50% premium for a lake home.  They are that sought after.

Cass Lake is Oakland County's largest lake at 1280 acres.  Some lake home buyers will not buy on Cass Lake because they say it is too big, too busy, and too crazy.  I myself believe it is like many all sports lakes in Southeastern Michigan.  Most big all sports lakes get busy every weekend in the summer.  You must be aware of other boaters at all times during the weekends.

As you can see there are many small lakes in West Bloomfield.  I would call them ponds that are more suited to swimming, paddle boarding, and kayaking on.  Green Lake is a good sized electric motor lake.  Even on these small pond like lakes you will find that some of the homes are a little pricier.
So how would I describe lake homes in West Bloomfield?  You are not going to find many small lake cottages from the 1920's to the 1950's.  Most West Bloomfield lake homes are like the normal homes you would find in a subdivision.  Many are normal ranchs, colonials, and split level homes.  Of course there are many beautiful luxury lakefront estates in the township that start from over a million dollars to over 10 million dollars.
