Walnut Lake real estate Oakland County

Walnut Lake is what I would call a more exclusive lake.  There are big beautiful luxury estate lakefront homes that range up to over 10,000 foot.  There have been Walnut Lake properties that have sold up to $3,000,000 in the last few years.  There are 5000 square foot ranches, and many other lakefront homes in the 6000 - 9000 square foot range. 

In 2011 there was a 1400 square foot ranch on 40 foot frontage that they were asking over $400,000 (built in 1931).  It was a tear down property that was being sold for the property value. 

So if you want an exclusive high end lake property in West Bloomfield Township then Walnut Lake may be the lake for you.  Depending on where you live on the lake the school district is either going to be Birmingham school district or Bloomfield Hills school district.

Here is so much data and information about waterfront homes on waterfront properties on Walnut lake in West Bloomfield Michigan.  When I look at lake homes or when I list a waterfront property I ask as much as I can about the lake.  I have driven the streets and gathered a lot of information about the real estate on our local lakes.  Whether it is a private lake or public lake makes a difference to lake home buyers.  Another big criteria for many lake home buyers is whether it is an all sports lake or not.  On this website I have a page on Oakland County’s Lake sizes and also a page on all the all sports lakes in Oakland County Michigan to help you narrow your lake home search down.  I always below an educated buyer will make better decisions. 

Search the latest Listings "Michigan Waterfront Properties For Sale”  If you are ready to make a move so why not hire one of Oakland County’s best realtors that has helped hundreds of lakefront home buyers and sellers.  One of my goals is to make your next move easier.  I hope this webpage and information helps you in your search of Southeastern Michigan lake homes.  There is so many different factors when looking at lake homes.  I want you to find the right lake for you and your family.  Look through my informational website and you will find the information you need on whether it is an all sports lake or not in Oakland and Livingston County.  If you can’t find the info you need give me a call at (248) 310-6239

Unlike some of  Oakland County Michigan Lakes there are some larger lots on Walnut Lake.    There are a few of the larger estate lake properties that have 3 and 5 acres. But there are others that are close together.  

There are some Walnut Lake access homes as there are at least two association beaches on the lake.  I am unsure whether they have boating rights to the lake. 

Between January & October 26, 2012 here's what sold on the lake.

One of the unexpected bonuses of having a lake home is the nature and the wildlife that calls the lake home.  Some of our Michigan lakes are right in the migration path of many of the ducks and geese.  I sold a home on Independence Lake that had so many different ducks on it.  It was absolutely amazing to see the whole flock take off at one time.  It reminded me of my childhood when my grandparents to me to Jack Miner's bird sanctuary in Canada.

Our local lakes have mallards, wood ducks, geese, and swans that are around most of the time.  Some people think the geese and swans can be a nuisance.  But there is something majestic about a swan swimming by.  Or funny when they have their butts in the air.  I know the sound thump, thump, thump of a swan taking flight.  It starts out awkward and then becomes a thing of beauty.

Rainbows over the lake, the moon glistening off the water are just two of the sights I love.  The sight of two swans squaring off over territory.  All these little things about life in nature.  It is wonderful!

If you move off the lake you will miss the sounds of the geese in the early morning.  The sights of the baby ducks all in a row each spring dutifully following their mother.  (One time we saw a duck that had 18 little ducks swimming behind it)  That is some of the special highlights of living on the lake.    

Walnut Lake Fishing

I have been told that there are walleye in the lake too.  And that some big pike have been caught in the lake.

  • Blue Gill
  • Crappie
  • Northern Pike
  • Smallmouth Bass
  • Perch
  • Largemouth Bass

I have taken all of the photos on the website.  But I can't get out to all the lakes at sunrise, sunset, or when there is a great photo due to the weather.  If you have a great weather photo or a sunrise of the photo I would love to put it on the website.  You can send it to   Thanks for all your help

Here is what a previous client had to say about me!

"Hi Russ,

I wanted to thank for helping me get my Milford condo.  I know I limited my chances of finding the "perfect condo" by wanting a certain small area.  But you came out here whenever we found one.  It took me a year of looking but finally we found one that was the "one".  It was a short sale which I knew nothing about.  You told me about all the problems that might happen with a "short sale" and some of them did.  You were good about re-assuring me about the length of time short sales take.  But we finally got the condo!   Thank you from Courtney and I."
