The children on the lake go to Howell Schools.
Grand Beach Lakefront homes are a mix of old and new homes. There are no large luxury estate style homes on the lake. Most of the lakefront homes are under 2500 square feet. The lakefront properties range from 50' to 110' of lake frontage. I am just estimating but I think there is only about 20 - 25 lakefront homes on the lake.
Between January & October 20, 2012 here's what sold on the lake.

Most Metro Detroit area lakes have a almost every style and variety of lake 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.
Even in 2014 you will still see many of the little lake cottages still standing. 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 year’s 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.
