Stoney Lake homes were built from the 1920's to the current time. One was built in 2012. Like the ages of the homes, the styles of lakefront homes on Stoney Lake vary widely too. There are small cottages on the lake that are small as 500 square feet. Then there is a 3500 square foot brick colonial on the lake too. There are homes of every size on the lake. Some of the lake homes have no garages.
6 homes sit down a hillside where you park up on the hill on the road and have to walk down stairs to get to your home. Many of the homes sit above the lake on the hillside. I always say that lake homes that sit above lake level where windows are 10 -16 foot + above the lake give amazing lake views. There are only about 22 homes on the lake.
There are condominiums on the south side of the lake. I have not seen docks on that side of the lake.
|If you want to save thousands of dollars when selling your home whether it on the lake or not call me. I have some of the lowest real estate commissions around. For example on a $200,000 home you will save $4000. On a $400,000 home you will save $8000.|
Could you use the $4000 to buy furniture for the new house, or could you take an $8000 vacation. Give me a call and keep the money in YOUR POCKET instead of giving it to some realtor.
This is a lake that doesn't have heavy boat traffic. Yes it does have public access but it is not that big of a lake to draw a lot of speed boats. I would say that people that put their boats in are more likely to be fishermen.
So what is my opinion of the lake? I think it is a nice lake for relaxing. Would I say it is a big enough lake for an active water sports enthusiasts? No I don't think it is big enough for anybody that wants to do a lot of waterskiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, or surfing. You would be going around in small circles. I think it is a lake for swimming, fishing, boating, and occasional water sports. Though the lake is never going to be so busy that you can't water ski or tube on it.
There is a nice park on the lake called Stoney Lake Park. This 13-acre park has a beach, three picnic pavilions, a gazebo, public restrooms, boat launch, playground and picnic areas with tables and grills. Ice fishing and ice skating are permitted on Stoney Lake. According to a diving website the maximum depth is 61-70ft, but the state DNR maps are saying Stone .
Stoney Lake is probably the calmest All-Sports lake you will find. It is a small, private lake located in north Oakland County, accessible to residents of the lake and the general public through Stoney Lake Park. The beach and park area is now open to the general public.
