Schoolhouse Lake lake front homes and real estate Oakland County

Schoolhouse Lake is what I would call a subdivision lake.  It is like Tull Lake or Lake Sherwood.  Paved streets and a well laid out subdivision.  It isn't like some Oakland County lakes where the home styles vary greatly and the home are both really old (1920's) to newer. There isn't a 1920's home on Schoolhouse lake that I know of.

These lakes have homes that were built in the late 1950's, 1960's, and 1970's.  The main home style on the lake is ranches with walkout basements.  They are primarily brick homes with some, colonials, and split levels along with the ranches.  Like Tull Lake and Lake Sherwood they do have some homes that were built between the 1970's and 2000.

Many of School House lake homes are under 2000 square feet.  Of course if you count finished walkouts they get up to 3800 square feet in size.

Schoolhouse Lake properties range from 70 to about 135' of lake frontage.  That is a good sized lot compared to some Oakland County lakes were they might be 40' or 50'!

So what are the pluses and minuses of lake living?  The cons of lake living is that most likely you are going to have less house for the money than you would if you bought in a community subdivision atmosphere.  The cons of lake living is that lake homes are closer together unless you pay bigger bucks for a large lake lot.  Most Southeastern Michigan lakes homes are closer together.  More like old Detroit homes.  But you have the choice whether you want to mix with your neighbors or not.

The pluses of lake living is the lake life style.  I call it living the dream.  I feel that living on a lake makes you feel more relaxed.  There is something about the water.  If you are one of those people that love the water then you will love lake living.  If you are one of those people that every vacation is to a warm spot on the water then you will love lake living.

it's all about family, and friend enjoying the lake.  So much fun and memories are in store for you when you buy a lake home.  If you like or love the water you will never regret buying a la lake home.

When you search lake homes don't search by name or ask a realtor to search by the name of the lake.  Search by area.  Why you ask, because some agents do not put the name of the lake on the listing.  So you could miss out on find a home on a lake you want.

Information about the lake from a neighbor that wrote me

1st, Loon Lake which is connected to Schoolhouse, connects to Silver Lake. This is only manageable by small vessels. Also, in a small vessel, from Loon lake you can go under Dixie highway toward the Waterford Historical Log cabin park and to the fish hatchery.
2nd. There is a house on Schoolhouse Lake that was built in the 20's, mine. 2975 West Walton was built by my Great grandfather in 1929. 3001West Walton was built by him in 1926. It was the first home on the lake. We have over 350ft of lake frontage.
Hope you do well, Waterford is a beautiful location to live.

Here is what a previous client said about me!   

My husband and I chose Russ to be our real estate agent after a friend highly recommended him.  We were moving here from Canada and only had a few days to look at homes.  When we came in to town, Russ went far above the call of duty.  He had thoroughly planned our 2 days and had numerous homes lined up for us to view.  After talking to us briefly and asking us a few questions before our arrival, he new exactly what types of homes would be ideal for us.  After searching for a short time he found the perfect home for us.  

After the sale, Russ even met our painters, carpet cleaners and home inspector at our new home since we were still out of town.  He also gave us detailed lists of available utility companies, schools, cable services, cleaning companies, house cleaners, fun things to do and wonderful restaurants in the area.  Russ made the entire experience enjoyable and easy.  He has a laid back, genuine personality and my entire family felt comfortable with him immediately.  He feels like a friend not just our real estate agent.

I would HIGHLY recommend Russ to anyone with complete confidence.
