Crescent Lake Waterford Michigan information

 Crescent Lake in Waterford  is a beautiful lake to live on.  Some home buyers worry about septic systems.  It is a very common thing to have when you are in a semi or rural area.   It is just too costly for communities to run sewers to certain areas because of the distance from existing sewer systems. Septic systems last for many years. So don’t worry if a lake home that you are looking at has a septic system.  Just have it inspected before you buy.

 If you love water then you have come to the right place to learn about Oakland County’s lakes and to be able to search Southeastern Michigan waterfront properties for sale.  We have the newest lake listings that just hit the Southeastern Michigan real estate market.

 Another beautiful part of the lake is all the memories you are going to make.  Good times with friends on the boat, barbeques on warm summer days, your grandchild catching their first fish.  (Or any fish….they always get so excited)  These good times will be in your mind forever.

  I myself live on White Lake in White Lake Township near Milford.  So I know all about the lake lifestyle and what you may be looking for.  It is a great life.  Waking up to the lake and all the wildlife on it is beautiful and sometime very breath taking.

 You will be like every lake home buyer, you will have different needs and wants.  It’s important that your Oakland County lakefront realtor listen to what you want otherwise you may end up on a lake that isn’t right for you.  Always be upfront and tell me what do or don’t want in a lake property.  Or when we are looking at lake homes tell why or why not the home fits your families’ needs.  Communication and information about the lakes and lake real estate is key to helping you.  Below you will find my research and notes on what the lake properties on          lake in           Michigan are like.  Search lake real estate Listings - "Oakland County Lake Homes For Sale”  Look through my website and you will find the information you need on whether it is a private, or public lake in Oakland and Livingston County.  If you can’t find the info you need give me a call at (248) 310-6239.

Crescent Lake Access Waterford MI

Crescent Lake is called that because the lake is sort of crescent shaped.   I myself would call it "U" shaped.  But who would have called the lake "You Lake"?

Children that live on the lake would go to Waterford School System.

It would say the boat traffic on the lake is not heavy.  Of course it is busier on the weekends.

Crescent Lake Homes Waterford MI

Crescent Lake waterfront homes and waterfront properties.

Elizabeth Lake Rd runs along two sides of Crescent Lake.  Elizabeth Lake Rd is a busy road especially at rush hour.  So Crescent Lake waterfront properties on those sides of the lake sit across the road.  The road is in between the houses and the lake.  But there is a little bit of grass between the lake and the road.  Though I think it would be hard to enjoy sitting there with all the road traffic and noise. 

There are not many homes located on the West side of the lake. Most homes are small, no huge homes.  So if you are looking to buy a mega mansion on a lake this lake isn't going to be for you.

When I say small homes I mean most of Crescent Lake homes are under 2000 square feet.  Though there is a 3277 square foot contemporary home.  But on the other end of the spectrum there are 800 square foot bungalows.

Crescent Lake home styles are:

      • contemporary
      • bungalows
      • cape cods
      • tudor
      • colonial style homes
      • ranches
      • split levels

On the West side of the lake there is a huge neighbor association park that has a Pavillion and beach volleyball, swing sets, and bathrooms. It is about the size of 2-3 football fields. No boats over 50 mph and no wake in the canals. The Village Place restaurant is right on the lake.

I Want My Dream Lake Home

Michigan lakefront home buyer bonus

The Metro Detroit area has many lakes and many different home styles to fit any potential lake buyers that are moving to Waterford Township or moving to the metro Detroit areas.  There are small electric motor lakes,  no motor lakes, and lots of all sports lakes in Oakland County.  So feel free to call me any time to talk about what you want in a lake.

What is the best county to buy a lake home in?  You should not base your decision on buying a lake home in on a county.  It should be about convenience.  If you are thinking about commuting to work which lakes, which counties will work best for you.  You do not want to be driving an hour and a half back and forth to work when you could have been driving only 45 minutes.

Another factor in many of my clients decisions is not only drive time to work, but also how far are their kids.  How far do the kids have to drive to get to the lake home, or lake cottage.  I have had clients that  have kids in Lansing and one in Mt Clemons.  So they want the lake cottage to be somewhere in between.  Or one in Ann Arbor and one in Farmington Hills.  The clients may be retired so they have no drive time.  It is more about convenience to the kids.

Of course Wayne, Oakland, Livingston, and Genesee Counties all have lakes.  All lakes are different.  So besides drive time it may boil down to the lake and the lake home you can find.  If you are not restricted by drive time then you have a wide open choice of four counties and hundreds of lakes.

So there is no best county to buy a lake home in.  There is no best city to buy a cottage in.  It is all about your criteria, your wants.  If you have no  travel restrictions or times you will have many choices.  Feel free to email me what you are looking for in a lake home so I can set up a specialized lake home search that can be emailed to you.  My email is
