One great thing to love about the Oakland County and Livingston County real estate market, it's the fantastic selection of waterfront property, lake homes,  and real estate. The counties' premium location in Michigan means there are access to numerous lakefront and creek-side properties yet only a short ride to your place of work.  There is a wide range of pricing and housing options to suit every need.

Welcome to Patterson Lake in Putnam Twp .  If you are like so many lakefront home owners you will always be waiting for spring to roll around.  So you can put your boat in the water and get out on the lake.  That’s when your lake life will be going full tilt again.  It is a wonderful way of life.

 Patterson Lake Fishing

  • Largemouth bass
  • Smallmouth bass 

 Boating pressure/Fishing pressure on the Silver Lake chain is much less than on the nearby Portage Lake chain due to the remoteness from the highway, the lack of easy boat launch access, and the whole lake is not completely developed.  But Lake Patterson does receive a considerable amount of fishing pressure as well as powerboating pressure from it's residents.

Patterson Lake is accessible via public access sites on Bruin Lake and Half Moon Lake. Boat anglers must also traverse Watson Lake.

What are some of the factors that affect the price of a lake property?  Of course the house and size of the house does.  The size of the frontage on the lake does influence the price of the lake home too.  Just as the size of the home influences the sales price so does the lake frontage.  A hundred foot lot on Maceday Lake in Waterford will be worth more than a 35' lot. 

Yes back in the early day's (the 1920's) some lake lots were only 35' because the cottages were too small.  Over the years some lake home owners have bought up the neighbors lots, bulldozed other homes down, or split a lot with the neighbor to make their lots bigger.  Most lake lots in Livingston and Lake Properties in Oakland County and the Metro Detroit have Lake Frontage that ranges from 35'- to about 150' on average.  Of course there are homes that have large lake frontage of over 200'.  I have seen some that are over a 1000' feet when they are on a peninsula of a lake.  That is always nice because you have a panoramic view from the property and the home.  I have even sold a small lake property of 26'.  Back in the day they did not have side setbacks.

I have seen some lake homes that are only one foot from the lot lines.  It is very important when you buy a lake home to get a staked survey if you can.  I always recommend to any buyer to look up the property lot lines.  I have seen several homes listed this year where they were advertised as Lake Front yet the property never actually touched the water. It is definitely buyer beware.  So be smart and look up the lot lines yourself.
