Middle Lake real estate Oakland County

Have you been thinking about buying a piece of lakefront real estate, maybe on midlle lake in Clarkston?   Maybe you are worrying about water clarity on inland lakes in Oakland County.  The clearness of our local lakes is not going to be like one of the Great Lakes or the ocean.  There is more boating traffic, and action per square acre on an inland lake.  So sediment is going to be churned up more.  The non all sports lakes will usually be clearer than an all sports lake.


  • Cities the lake lies in                       West Bloomfield, Commerce
  • School district for the lake               Walled Lake
  • Streets around the lake are               Paved
  • City water                                         Well, Municipal water, 
  • City sewer                                         Sewer sanitary, septic
  • Canals on Lake                                  yes
  • Lots over an acre on lake                   yes
  • Water-ski course                                 n/a
  • Condominiums                                   no



Lake homes are one of the best investments you can make.  As our lives get busier and busier more buyers will see the value of owning a lake home in Oakland County or around metro Detroit.  Driving up north may be out of the question for some potential lake home buyers.  You may have to be on call on weekends.  It is much easier if you were less than an hour away.  You can be anywhere you need to be quick.  Some people need to be close to Detroit because of their kids busy activities, work, or family. 

Wouldn’t you like the daily view of a lake out your window?  You may sit on your deck with a cup of coffee watching the stillness of the lake, or watch a family of ducks swim by.  Little things that make lake living and owning a house on a lake special.  Our goal is to help you achieve that dream.

It is the same way for family and friends.  If you want family and friends to come to your lake house they will most likely come when it is a short drive versus driving 4 or 5 hours.  Oakland County waterfront properties are a great investment because they are not making more lakes.  There is a limited supply and always a high demand.  As the years go by lake home values will continue to grow.  Here is lots of information about waterfront properties on Middle lake in Clarkston Michigan.  Search Oakland County lake properties for sale by map.  Zoom in on the lake or area to find your dream lake home.  



Middle Lake properties are not going to be large acreage properties.  They range from about 60' to over 180' lake frontage.  Most of Middle Lake front homes are older. 

There are no luxury estate style homes like there are on Deer Lake right down the street.  The homes that have been on the MLS the last few years range from the 1920's -1960's.  There are approximately 20 homes on the lake.  Middle Lake homes are what I would call more of older home lake. 

The lake homes range from about 1500 -2500 square feet.  Most of them only have no garages or 1 car garages.

I have taken all of the photos on the site, but I can't be on all the lakes when a great weather photo comes up. Do you have a great picture of a rainbow or lightning over the lake and wouldn't mind sharing it?  I would love to show it off on the website.  You can send it to


There is a page on the State of Michigan website that has all the laws pertaining to in lnland Lakes.  I have tried to put and add lake rules whenever I find out about them.  Most southeastern Michigan lakes are governed by the normal lake rules and regulations.  So lakes are non-motorized or electric motor only.  But you will know that before buying on the lake.


Here are some of the normal rules and regulations of our local lakes.  Boat traffic goes counter clockwise on the lake.  You should stay 100 feet from the shore especially if you are making a wake.  (Remember you are rocking everybody's boats.  You can't tow somebody behind a boat before dawn or after dusk.  Basically not in the dark.  If you are at least 16 years of age and born after December 31, 1978, may operate a Personal water craft legally only if they have obtained a boating safety certificate.


Most boats have a sticker of how much weight and how many people can be on the boat at one time.  You must have life preservers for each person on the boat too.  Most lakes have no speed limits on them.  There are only a few that do in our local area.


Most private lakes in Southeastern Michigan do not have a sheriff on the lake unless they are called.  Many of the bigger public all sports lakes will have a sheriff on the lake on the weekends.  It depends on the county and the county's budget as how often they are out there.


I did some research on Oakland County Lakes and added all the lake laws I could find on Michigan's website.
