Zukey Lake Hamburg MI information - Portage chain of lakes

How important is the school system to you when buying a lakefront home in Oakland County or Livingston County?  Or is the drive time more important to you when looking at waterfront properties?  I always urge lake home buyers to write up a list of priorities before they start their home search.  Knowing what you want and having it on paper will keep you focused and most likely will help you find the home that really fits your criteria.  It is hard enough to find the “right” or “perfect” home in a subdivision.  Now you are looking for that “right” home and adding in all these other criteria such as size of lake, all sports or not, public or private, or type of water bottom.  Search "Michigan Lake Cottages & Homes For Sale”

Zukey Lake Tavern

Zukey Lake is part of the Portage/Pinckney chain of lakes.  Zukey Lake Tavern is on the north side of the lake.  The lake is very shallow in some areas. Zukey Lake is one of the gathering places for shallow swimming with the grandkids.  Or just parking the boat and talking with other friends.

Homes for sale Zukey Lake Livingston County MITo ski or wakeboard you would go down to Strawberry Lake or Portage Lake.  I have been told there is a sand bar in the lake that you have to be carefull that you don't tear up your prop.

Some of the docks are very long.  They have to be long so it's deep enough to get the boat motor in.

On the South side of the lake there is a road that you almost feel like you are up north.  It is heavily wooded and it seems like you are miles away from civilization.

The kids on the lake would go to Pinckney School System.

Zukey Lakefront homes for sale.  Homes range from the 1900's to the 2000's.  I think the majority of the homes were built between 1940s and 1970's.  There are some little 800 square foot ranches, but there is also a 3900 square foot cape cod with 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and a 3 car garage.   There is also a large 5600 contemporary estate sized home that has 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, and a 3 car garage.

 The biggest piece of Zukey Lake real estate is on 4.5 acres.  Though most lots have between 40 and 200 foot on the lake. 

Zukey Lake home styles are:

      • bungalows
      • cape cods
      • colonial style homes
      • ranches
      • split levels

Zukey Lake houses a marina and docks for rent at Zukey Lake Tavern. It is a very shallow lake, any skiing or wakeboarding would have to be done on one of the other chain lakes.

Zukey Lake properties Hamburg Michigan

Like most Livingston County MI Lakes there are not a lot of wide open spaces or privacy.  The homes are not widely spaced apart.  

There is at least one neighborhood association that has a lake lot and lake access to Zukey Lake.  I know that for sure because I was kicked out of it when I was taking a few pictures of the lake.  It was fall and nobody was in the lake, but one guy was ornery and didn't want me to stand on the association property to take a picture.  (Oh well)  But that ornery old guy was the exception.  I have met and talked to so many good residents of the lake that have helped with with all this information about Zukey Lake.  

I am looking for local Livingston County lake association information and websites so I can add the link to this website so internet surfers that are looking for the lake association can find it.  If you have information about a lake association or it's website you can email me at  Thanks for all your help!

      Here is what one of my previous clients had to say about working with me!
"It was so good to meet a nice and honest Realtor.  It was like he was part of the family.  I was recovering from an illness and we needed to move to a home that was all on one floor.  We had already found a renter for our home so we had to put together the deal quickly.  Russ took care of it all and made whatever trips to our home that were necessary to get everything done.  I had no worries at all.  All I had to do was make it to the closing to sign my name.  We were out of our old house and into the new  in plenty of time so the new renter could move in.  

We even lost our closing package  during the move and he was nice enough to make a new one and drop it buy.  Though I tell him I gained five pounds on the cake that he brought to us.   I would recommend him to anybody that needs a Realtor or mortgage person."
