Tan Lake Homes Oxford MI

Tan Lake Oxford MILake homes on Tan Lake are going to be more like normal homes that you see in any city or subdivision.  There are no tiny cottages that you see on many of the lakes in Oakland County.  There are no little 600 or 700 square foot one and two bedrooms with one bath that were built in the 1920's or 1930.  Many of the waterfront homes on Tan Lake will have all the normal things you see in most subdivisions. Most will have garages, brick, stone, or vinyl exteriors, and basements.  Some of the homes are on bigger lots.  You can find just about any size, or style of home on the lake.  There are no mega mansion luxury lake estates on the lake.  You won't find 7000 or 8000 square foot luxury lake homes on the Stringy Lake chain.

Because there are no little homes, and most of them are well cared for they look like a subdivision.  No junk laying around the homes.  It is a well kept neighborhood in most cases.  Sometimes lake home buyers do not lakes that are a mish mash of lake houses, that are close together, and have junk on the outside.  Tan Lake homes are not like that at all. 

  • 2 -4 bedrooms
  • 1 1/2 - 4 bathrooms
  • Homes range from 1200 to over 3000 square feet
  • Lot sizes range from .25 to 1.92 acres
  • There are a couple of homes that have no garages, but most have 2 -3 car garages
  • Homes were built between 1952 to 2001
  • Most homes have basement but there are a few on crawl spaces
  • Home styles are ranches, colonials, split levels, and contemporary homes

 Tan Lake Oxford MI Information

Tan Lake Homes Oxford MITan Lake is part of the Stringy Lake Chain.  Tan Lake and Long Lake are connected as far as I can tell from the maps.  You cannot tell where one lake starts and the other lake ends.  It is the same way with Clear Lake and Squaw Lake.  They look like they are one and the same lake.  The Stringy Lake chain is only 164 acres in total size.  Most of the lakes are under 35 acres.  Even together Tan Lake and Long Lake do not add up to a large lake.  I would say that all the lakes in the chain are good for occassional water skiing or tubing.  I do not think a person who wants a big lake or wants to do a lot of water sports would want to stay on Tan Lake or any lake in the Stringy Chain of Lakes.

The Stringy Lake chain is part of the Clinton River watershed.  It is fed by Paint Creek to the north and it flows out of the chain on the south side of spring lake.

Tan Lake location

Tan Lake is about a mile west of downtown Oxford.  It lies south of Seymour Lake Road and east of M-24.  If you follow M-24 south you can jump on I-75 expressway in about 10 -15 minutes.  If you head north on M-24 you will hit the town of Lapeer and I-69.  

I moved onto a lake (White Lake in Oakland County) about ten years ago.  I love lake living and every client I have helped move onto a lake in the last 15 years tell me how much their life has changed for the better and how much they love living on a lake.  Some of them have told me that they wished they had done it sooner.  Living on a lake is a great way of life.  Let's hope we can find the right lake and right lake home for you.  

The biggest thing I can tell you about searching for a lake home is that you will have to compromise on what you want in a lake home.  There are so many more factors that you have to consider when buying a lake home.  Give me a call to talk about what you want in a lake house.  I know the local lakes and can help you find the home of your dreams with less trouble and less stress.  Call me today at 248-310-6239
