Lake Shannon Tyrone Township MI information

One of the first things you should do when buying a waterfront home on lake Lake Shannon in Tyrone Twp is get a survey.  Waterfront properties are unique.  Some homes that you thought were waterfront may not be.  Some may have easements in front of them.  You may not even own to the lake.  It is a big surprise to find that out for some home owners.  You won’t be able to build on that property.  So get a survey! 

  • Cities the lake lies in                        Tyrone Twp
  • School district for the lake                 Hartland, linden
  • Streets around the lake are               Gravel, paved
  • City water                                        Well
  • City sewer                                        Septic
  • Canals on Lake                                  yes
  • Lots over an acre on lake                   yes
  • Water-ski course                               n/a
  • Condominiums                                  no

Is your dream…………… living on a lake?  So many people love the water.  Whether you are looking for a cottage on an Oakland County lake or a year round home you have come to the right website.  This website is packed full of great information and data on our local lakes.  We have recent sold histories on the lake homes.  You can learn about what all sports lake means and whether a private or public lake is right for you and your family.  We try to help explain the ins and outs of buying a lake home in Michigan.

Half the fun of living on the lake is all the beautiful scenery you have.  Little things like an occasional fish jumping out of the water, or a beautiful sunset, or a group of ducks swimming by.  These are all the sights you will be able to see when you have a home on a lake.

Below on this webpage you will learn about waterfront houses on lake  Shannon in Tyrone Twp Michigan.  Lakes in Oakland County or Livingston County are so different.  So many different types of lake bottoms, styles of homes, lake sizes, and depths.  Whether they have a sand bar area that everybody meets at.  These little factors enter into your search of the right waterfront home for you and your family.  One of them may be really important to you.  Your wants and needs in a lake and a waterfront home are a big concern to me as your lake realtor.  Not only do I need to point out the obvious problems in a house that I see, but I also have to guide you and show you lakes that may be really suitable for you.  After all there are probably many lakes that you many not know about out here.  One of my goals is to help you find a lake that fits your families intended water activities.  Even in the future.

It is sort of like making the mistake of buying a two bedroom house when you are married and have a pregnant wife.  You are going to outgrow that house quick with a little one.  It is the same way with the different lakes.  I want to help you plan for the future of lake living, so you don’t have to make a second move to a different Oakland County lake.  Search Michigan lakefront homes & cottages by map.  Zoom in on the lake or area to find your dream lake home.

Lake Shannon Livingston County MI

Lake Shannon is fed by Ore Creek with a dams at either end of the lake. On the south end of the lake, the creek widens but not enough for skiing. There is no access from Lake Shannon to other lakes by boat.

Lake Shannon is a long narrow lake that is in two townships.  The lake is in Tyrone Township and Deerfield Township in Livingston County Michigan.  So it depends on where you live on the lake where your child goes to school.  If you live in Deerfield Township your child would go to Hartland schools and if you live on the lake in Tyrone Township your child would go to Linden schools.

The lake is wider at the northern part of the lake and gets narrow as you go south.

Lake Shannon real estate Livingston County MI

Lake Shannon real estate and Lake Shannon waterfront properties are not dumpy little cottages.  Most of the lake front homes are nice homes.  There are some lakefront propertiesre that are only 1000 to 1400 square feet, but I would say most of the lake front homes are 2000 square feet and larger.

Some of Lake Shannon's real estate is heavily wooded.  I have been in one house that was like you were up north the home was so secluded with trees.  It was beautiful over looking the lake because the home sat up on a hill.  There are some waterfront properties that do sit higher above the lake and there are stairs needed to go down to the water's edge

We all have dreams and goals that we hope will make our life better.  Is living on a lake one of them.  I call it living the dream.  Do you want to retire somewhere warm?  Do you want to retire on some island?   My clients that have just bought or bought a lake home in the last two years say to me "why didn't I do this years ago.”.   I myself can't believe I am living the dream.

The ability to go swimming when I want.  The ability to untie the boat and go for a little cruise around the lake. All those dreams have become reality.  They can become reality for you too.  Do you want to be able to come home at the end of the day and relax on your deck or patio and look out at the lake?

Many grandparents or parents that have kids that do not visit to often want to have a fun place for their kids or grandkids to come back to.  Living the dream may be having your friends or family over the weekend.  It could be relaxing in the sun.  There are so many fun things to do on the lake.  Your lake home is your vacation.  Many people on the lake think why go on vacation when we live on the lake?  Why drive 3 1/2 hours to go up north when you have paradise in your back yard. 

I know some lake people that miss weddings, graduation parties because it is a beautiful day on the lake.  They are living the dream.  The kids jumping off the dock.  Your child catching that big fish or your grandchild catching their first fish.  Family playing volley ball, corn hole, or ladder ball.  Laughing and having fun at the lake.  That is what lake living is all about.

Here is what a previous client had to say about their experience working with me!

"Dear Russ,
It´s been 2 months since we moved into our new Canton condo and we
are very happy with it. In the beginning we didn´t even
know what we needed but with your help, guidance and
patience we chose the best condo in the area with the best
price according to our needs. We were looking all over.  We looked in Novi, Warrren, Canton, Farmington Hills.  But we finally found our Canton condo.  We appreciate everything you
have done for us. We would recommend you without hesitation
to everyone we know who wants to buy or sell a house. "
