Let's find your dream lakefront home on Upper Long Lake in Bloomfield Township. Did you know that the lake lies in both West Bloomfield Township and Bloomfield Township? Here is some great info about the lake
This is one of Oakland County's glacial formed lake. It is a kettle lake that is 22 foot deep at the deepest spot. What is one of the best features of the lake is that it is really it is a chain of lakes. There are very few chain of lakes in SE Michigan. There are two nice chains of lakes in Livingston County.....The Portage Chain of Lakes and the Half Moon Chain of Lakes. Oakland has a couple of small chain of lakes. One of them is the Loon Lake, Wormer, Mohawk, Schoolhouse Chain.
Upper Long Lake flows into Lower Long Lake then into Forest Lake and then becomes part of the Rouge River. It is a spring fed lake. Upper Long Lake that is an all sports lake that allows gas motors, jet skis, making a wake, and towing people behind the boat. Forest Lake and Lower Long Lake don't allow any of those items. They are private non all sports lakes. No wake, electric motor or paddle power only, no jets, and definitely no tubing or skiing. So in order to go onto Lower Long Lake or Forest Lake you need to have a second motor on your boat. It has to be an electric motor!
You have so much more to see with 3 lakes and miles of shore line. You have so many more fishing spots to chose from and I saw a video on the internet of a couple of young boys that caught some big bass on the chain. One bass was about 5 lbs!
You will find about every size of home on the lake from 1500 square feet to over 15,000 square feet. So you have average size lake homes all the way up to luxury lake estates. It is the same way with homes styles there are many styles from ranch homes to contemporary homes. The homes sit on many different size lake lots some up to and over two and a half acres. So you will find some luxury lakefront homes on large lots.
This is not a lake where you will find lake cottages on. I would say a very, very large majority of Upper Long Lake homes are year round homes and not weekend getaways.
The roads on the lakes are paved. Some of the waterfront homes are on septic and some are on sewers. It is the same way with water. Some homes are on well others are on city water. Just depends on where you live on the lake. It is the same way with school districts. Some homes fall in the Pontiac school district and other homes fall in the Bloomfield Hills school district. So if you really want good schools you need to make sure the house is in the Bloomfield Hills school district. Other wise if you want a good education for your child you will have to send them to private schools if they fall in the Pontiac School District.
