Island Lake in Bloomfield Township Michigan is what I would call an upper end prestigous lake. Children that live on Island Lake attend Bloomfield Hills Schools.
Kirk in the Hills Church is on the south side of the lake.
You won't find those old 1920's 800 square foot wood ranches on Island Lake in Oakland County. You most likely are not going to find a lakefront home less than $500,000 on this Oakland County lake. Most of the Island Lakefront homes were built in the 1950's and 1960's. There are some waterfront homes that were built later, some as late as 2000.
Most of the homes are ranches, colonials, cape cods, and contemporary home. They range in size from 2000 square feet to over 5000 square feet.
Most Island Lake properties range from 1/2 acre to over 2 acres. Some of them have over 200' of lake frontage.
Island Lake home styles are:

I am one of those people that just love to be on or near the water so I may have a biased attitude. I am one of those people that go on vacation to a sunny spot and will not eat indoors. I want to be on a deck overlooking the water. That is they type of person I am. In 2014 I am 56 years old and still water skiing and knee boarding. I would do so many other water sports too I still want to learn how to barefoot water ski and how to wakeboard. (You are only as young as you feel)
I love living on the lake. I like hearing the geese in the early morning hours. In the fall I love to see the mist rising off the lake. I love everything about the lakes. It is a great life style. To me I love driving my friends and families kids around the lake on a tube. To see the kids laughing and having fun is great.
There is so much about the lake life style that you will love. The barbeques, the family gathering on the lake are great fun. That is what life is about. Having fun and enjoying life to the fullest. Instead of living in Rochester, Livonia, or West Bloomfield in a subdivision and going somewhere on the weekend to have fun........You have the option to live on the lake and have fun in your back yard. Your friends, your family will want to come out and visit you.
Lake living is a great way of life. I hope you get to experience it in your life time. Call me if you are ready to get started on your lake home search (248)310-6239
