The typical Island Lake home in Green Oak Township is going to be older from the 1920's -1950's. Some of them are still small 800 -1000 square foot homes but some of them have been added on to and now are 1500 - 2000 square. In fact there is on 1890 built home that has been added onto and is now a 2900 square foot colonial.
There are some later built laklefront homes....I know there is one 1960's ranch and a 2000's built colonial. But many of the waterfront homes are smaller.
There are small apartments and a motel on the south side of the lake. Island Lake home styles are bungalows, ranchs, and colonials.
Most Island Lake properties have 35' & 40' of lake frontage but there are some that go up to 80'. Some houses do not sit right on the lake, but they sit across a gravel road. I also noticed one on the MLS that had 152' of lake frontage.
Between January & October 20, 2012 here's what sold on the lake.

At what age do you have to buy a fishing license and when do you not need a license. You must purchase a fishing license if you are 17 years of age or older and plan on fishing in Michigan's inland lakes. Individuals under the age of 17 may fish without a license. Regardless of age, everyone is required to observe all fishing rules and regulations at all times. All annual fishing licenses are valid from March 1st of a given year through March 31st of the following year.
Fishing license dollars fund a variety of activities including; fish management work on the state's waters, habitat rehabilitation and protection, fish stocking, information distribution, education and outreach efforts to anglers and the public, and much more. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources' Fisheries Division does not receive any general fund tax dollars to support its activities. Instead, Fisheries Division depends heavily on angler dollars collected through fishing license sales and federal excise tax dollars from the sale of fishing tackle (Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act) to manage Michigan's fisheries. Buying a fishing license, even if you do not plan to go fishing, can make a big difference to the future health of Michigan's prized freshwaters.
The money spent on fishing license does help our local lakes. For more information on the difference fishermen make by purchasing licenses, visit www.michigan.gov/itsyournature.
