West Bloomfield Lakes & homes

Have you been thinking about buying a lakefront home on a West Bloomfield lake. There are many beautiful lakes in West Bloomfield. In fact there are about 24 lakes that cover 1858.7 acres. About 12% of the township is water!  West Bloomfield Township is sometimes referred to as the “lake township of Oakland County”. 

West Bloomfield Lake

Yes, there is a lake in West Bloomfield that is called West Bloomfield Lake. It is more of a large pond than a lake. It sits in the middle of a nice subdivision. It is more of a lake to paddle around on. It’s not an all sports lake so you can’t put a motor boat on it. Even if you could it’s not big enough to do so.

If you are thinking of selling you will be happy to know that I have one of the lowest commission rates for selling your home. You get a full time, 20 year experienced realtor that knows how to market your home and get it sold for top dollar.

Middle Straits Lake homes

Middle Straits Lake is fed by Upper Straits Lake and then feeds down to Lower Strait Lake. Middle Straits Lake is more a long narrow lake. It’s not super narrow. It’s wide enough not to swim across. It is a nice lake to live on and it is not too far from M-5 which can make your drive easier. You can get to I-696 pretty easy from M-5. Middle Straits Lake is just a little north of Richardson Rd.

You will find all sorts of styles, sizes, and ages of homes on Middle Straits Lake. However it is my opinion that you should never limit yourself to one lake as you may cut out too many other lake homes that may fit your families wants and needs. Here is some indepth info about the lake and a video too!

Upper Straits Lake homes

If you are unaware of this Upper Straits Lake is what I consider a high end lake. What I mean by a high end lake is that it is a highly desirable lake. Upper Straits Lake homes demand a higher price per square foot than other lakes in the area. Even a small house or a tear down is going to cost a good amount. Some of the reasons why West Bloomfield Lake homes on Upper Straits Lake are in demand is because:

  • Closeness & ease of drive to work. M-5, Orchard Lake Rd, and Telegraph are all relatively close to the lakes
  • Good schools
  • Low crime and a safe city
  • The community of West Bloomfield is highly desirable whether the home is on the lake or off.
