Search For Your Dream Home Here:
Living on the lake, with a lakefront home in West Bloomfield Michigan is a dream come true for some buyers. Being that many of West Bloomfield Lakes are only 75 miles from Downtown Detroit and so close to many of our business centers like Troy, Southfield, Novi, and Auburn Hills makes it ideal for year round living. I have broken down the size of lakes in Bloomfield and West Bloomfield lakes sizes and depths to help you.
There are probably several thousand lakefront properties on West Bloomfield's 35 named lakes. There are also 34 named lakes in Bloomfield. There are many beautiful custom built waterfront homes in the community. There are very few small homes or old cottages left on the lakes. Some lakes have none of the old small lake cottages left. They have been torn down to build newer homes. You will also find some vacant lakefront properties on the local lakes.
I have been living here for many years and know the area very well. I will work with you to find the best lake house around the West Bloomfield area.
Nothing beats views of the lake when you wake up in the morning. Imagine having coffee while watching the wild ducks and geese swimming by. Or imagine a hard day at work and coming home to relax on your deck with a cold drink in your hand watching the sun go down and your stress melting away. The amazing views of the West Bloomfield's lakes will add years to your life. Cass Lake is West Bloomfield's largest lake at 1280 acres and is about a mile long. There are 7 big all sports lakes in West Bloomfield. While Cass Lake is a large lake, it also means that buying a home on the lake comes with a higher price than not living on the lake. You have to throw away the belief that you can buy a lake home for the same cost as a non lake home. Waterfront homes in West Bloomfield command a higher price for several reasons:
The prices range from $150,000 for a canal front home or a fixer upper to several million for a newer custom built house with many of today's most wanted features like open layouts, gourmet kitchens, master bedroom suites, 3+ car garages, and walk out basements. You can find exquisite estates on the Cass, Pine, and Walnut Lake to name a few of them.

Most of the home styles that are lake front are contemporary, colonials, or ranch styles with many having panoramic views.
I will show you lake homes around West Bloomfield or any community in the Metro Detroit area. Being a lake person myself (I live on White Lake) I know the values of lake real estate as well as current trends.
