Duck Lake was presumably named for an abundance of waterfowl.  Note that the United States Geological Survey officially recognizes 161 different lakes with this name in the United States, including thirty in Michigan alone.  There is even another "Duck Lake" in Oakland County, in Oxford Township.

At one time they tried to drain Duck Lake to reclaim additional farmland.  Wouldn't that have been a shame!

 Duck Lake location

Duck Lake is located in Highland Twp in the western part of Oakland County Michigan.  It is South of White Lake Rd, West of Duck Lake Rd, North of E. Wardlow Rd, and East of Wardlow Rd.

There are very few of the older cottages for the 1930's to the 1950's left.  Most of the homes have been torn down and re-built.  If you are looking for a lake that you won't be living next to a shack then you might want to view some of the houses on Duck Lake.

South Bayshores subdivision is on the south east side of the lake and there are some big, newer built brick colonials with walkout basements that have lake frontage

Duck Lake front homes are still close together, but there are some lake front homes that have large yards with plenty of room to entertain and park.  What I like about Duck Lake is that some of the homes have mature trees.  There are some canals off the lake that you can have full lake access without all the noise and commotion. 

Children who live on the lake attend Huron Valley Schools.

There is plenty of lake access homes near Duck Lake

Duck Lake General Information                        

I have boated on Duck Lake before and I like it because it has multiple large areas to go around in.  You can't see the whole lake from any one point.  There are some canals and bays to cruise through.  The kids that live on the lake will go to Huron Valley School system.

In 2011 there have been fewer and fewer lake front foreclosures.  Many times when they hit the market they have multiple offers and sometimes they go far above list price.  So if you see a Duck Lake foreclosure and you want the house.  Bid to get it because there will be other people wanting the house.  Always feel free to call me on my cell at (313) 310-9855 for your list of Highland Twp/ White Lake Twp foreclosures.

To Search any Michigan Lake for lake homes for sale go to the atlas search or search by area.  I hope this helped you if you have a Michigan relocation in your future.

Most Southeastern Michigan lakes have a wide variety of homes.  Remember that the expansion of Metro Detroit started in the early 1900's.  Detroiters started coming out to Oakland and Livingston County lakes in the 1920's.  There were little one - three bedroom cottages ranging from 500 to 1000 square feet.  Detroiter's came out there to get away from the city life.  The majority of the lake homes were just cottages during this period.

The affluent Detroiter built some bigger estate homes.  Back then an estate size home may have been 2000 square feet or more.  There are still a few of them standing on different lakes.

So you will still find on some of the lakes little lake cottages.  Some have been remodeled, some need to be torn down.  Some of them have been added onto.  They have gone up.  Some have had several additions.  Porches were enclosed and made part of the house.   Over the years bungalows, ranches, colonials, split levels, tudors were built too.   Before the 1970's I would say most of the homes that were built ranged from a 1000 -2000 square feet most of the time. 

I am speaking in generalities.  Of course there are some that were bigger in those periods, but that is what the majority of the home sizes are.  That is what the lake home styles are like in metro Detroit.  Most lakes have a wide variety of lake home styles.
