Watkins Lake Waterford MI information
Watkins Lake real estate Oakland County MI
When I first thought of Watkins Lake I assumed it was just a same lake with lots of small homes and cottages. Boy was I mistaken. Sure there are still the old 1200 square foot 1930's cottages. But there aren't a ton of them anymore. Many of them have been torn down and newer lakefront homes have been built. There have been new Watkins Lake waterfront homes built in the last ten years.
The lake homes range from 1000 square feet to over 4600 square feet. Watkins Lake properties range from 34' to 194' lake frontage. There are even 3000 square foot home that are built on 50' wide lots. They are more of the shotgun style homes. Those homes are usually on some of the deeper lots on the lake. Some of them are over 340' deep.
If you are looking for space and privacy in a Watkins Lake property there are not many of them. But there are a few over 1 acre and one as big as 6 acres.
