Survey, Survey, Survey. I think you should absolutely have a survey done when buying a waterfront real estate on Pardee Lake in Genoa . I actually know of one person that bought a house then found out they had no lake frontage. I know another person that bought a lakefront home and had it surveyed. He owned a chunk of property across a canal that the other person thought was there. So hire a surveyor.
Did you grow up on a lake or have great memories of going to the lake when you were younger? I had great memories of going to the lake with my uncle and grandfather. I remember the excitement of loading the cooler with Orange Crush. Maybe you have memories of going to the grandparent’s cottage or some place on a lake that you have fond memories of. You can be the start of even have more great times and fun memories of your own when you have your own Oakland County lake cottage.
You may have great memories of being at the beach or on the water. All these memories may be eclipsed by the new memories you will be making. The good times with family and friends on the boat, kids catching fish off your dock, the sounds of laughter of kids playing in the water. So many fun times ahead when you buy a lake home.

Pardee Lake is 81 acres in size and some of that is very natural that is covered in Lily pads. Pardee Lake is basically a round lake with a couple of bays. I would say it is more like a round-shaped lake with a bay around a corner. Pardee Lake Livingston County is a all sports lake with very minimal traffic. It would be classified as a small lake. Like most of Michigan inland lakes lake traffic during the week is quiet. During the weekend Pardee homeowners come out to play on the lake.
Pardee Lake is located in Genoa Township MI. Pardee Lake is located south of Elizabeth Lake Rd and M-59, East of Bogie Lake Road, north of Cooley Lake Rd and West of Union Lake Rd
I talked to one of the residents and he said the fishing was great. There are bass, some pike, and of course crappie, and bluegills.
The maximum depth is 19 feet deep and much of the lake is shallow. The water is fairly clear. Because it isn't too deep the lake water gets fairly warm.
Pardee Lake properties are mostly year round residents. There are only 34 homes on the lake. Though there is some vacant lakefront property around the lake.(not currently for sale 2011). There are only a few weekend cottages. So most of them have been updated. There are a few old cottages but many of the homes were built in the 1960's, 1970's, and 1980's. Some are well built newer Livingston County Lakefront homes. There is a 4000 square foot split level lakefront home on the lake and there are some smaller 1400 square foot ranches. The colonials are as small as 1600 square foot.
Most of the Pardee Lake waterfront homes are on fairly flat ground. So there are no stairs down to the lake.

I have looked at homes on Pardee Lake and talked to a couple of the neighbors. My view of the lake is that the homes are well kept. The people are friendly. There is a lake association. Dues were $500 in 2011. There is a dam at the north end of the lake controlling outflow into Coon Lake. The lake is spring feed and the level doesn't vary very much over the whole summer.
There is a swim platfrom in the middle of the lake that residents come to intermingle swim. Like I said I would say the boating traffic on the lake is light whether it is the weekend or during the week.
The school district for lake residents is Howell.
Everybody thinks of the summer when thinking of Michigan lake homes. But even in the winter many Michigan Lakes are very active. There is ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, ice skating, and four wheeling going on.
If you are serious about looking for a lake home in South Eastern Michigan email me and I will set up a lake home search with what you want in search criteria. We can help you find the lake home of your dreams!
Most Metro Detroit area lakes have almost every style and variety of lake homes. Remember that the expansion of Metro Detroit started in the early 1900's. Detroiters started coming out to Oakland and Livingston County lakes in the 1920's. There were little one - three bedroom cottages ranging from 500 to 1000 square feet. Detroiter's came out there to get away from the city life. The majority of the lake homes were just cottages during this period.
The affluent Detroiter built some bigger estate homes. Back then an estate size home may have been 2000 square feet or more. There are still a few of them standing on different lakes.
Even in 2014 you will still see many of the little lake cottages still standing. Some have been remodeled, some need to be torn down. Some of them have been added onto. They have gone up. Some have had several additions. Porches were enclosed and made part of the house. Over the year’s bungalows, ranches, colonials, split levels, Tudors were built too. Before the 1970's I would say most of the homes that were built ranged from a 1000 -2000 square feet most of the time.
I am speaking in generalities. Of course there are some that were bigger in those periods, but that is what the majority of the home sizes are. That is what the lake home styles are like in metro Detroit. Most lakes have a wide variety of lake home styles.

My Husband and I have been in our new home for about a year now and we both feel that it would not have been possible without your help.
