I don't believe there is a Half Moon Lake front home that is over 3500 square feet. Most of the homes are small ranches in the 1000 -1500 square foot range. Halfmoon Lakefront homes are few because the state park covers half the lake frontage. The lakefront homes consist of smaller homes on dirt roads. The homes are level with the lake and do not require stairs down to the lake. Halfmoon Lake home styles include colonials and Cape cods too.
Half Moon Lake waterfront properties usually have 70' or more in lake frontage. There is even one home with 330 foot of frontage, and there are a few with 50 foot of lake frontage.
I really like this whole Pinckney chain of lakes because it is so rural. So natural.
Southeastern Michigan lakes have so many different lake bottoms. Some are mucky, some are sandy, and some are full of vegetation. They vary so much from lake to lake and even from one side of the lake to the other. You could have a sandy lake bottom on one side of the lake and mucky on the other. Some lakes are all sandy bottoms. Others are all mucky. The easiest way to check whether it is sandy or mucky is to get into the lake. That is why it is smart to buy a lake home when the ice is off the lake. Sometimes the lake bottom is sandy for 10 or 15 feet then gets mucky. Usually if the lake listing does not proclaim sandy lake bottom....then it does not have it.
The next part of Lake Frontage that you may want to consider is vegetation or vegetation free lake front. Usually a mucky lake front invites lily pads and cattails. Because of DNR rules you cannot just go out and rip out lily pads and vegetation in front of the home. So do not buy a lake home thinking you can change the waterfront drastically. Sure some lake home buyers do the midnight lily pad weeding or put down chemicals at night to kill the vegetation....but it is illegal and still will take several years to do.
You will notice that if the sellers are older sometimes there will be a little bit of vegetation out front. That is usually easily cleaned up. This usually is the case when the sellers are older and have not used the lake in years. By the time the kids and grandkids use the lakefront all summer it will be clean again. Many lake home owners have a large rake (a landscape rake) to rake up seaweed, and rocks. It is a great tool to have.
