Gilbert Lake Oakland County

Gilbert Lake is a no speed boats, electric motor lake. Gilbert Lake is what I would call a more prestigious lake.  With it's easy access to Telegraph and close proximity to the freeways and Birmingham, and West Bloomfield the lake draws a higher demographic resident. 

Gilbert Lake has two islands on the lake.  Some of the lake homes sit up on the hillside.  Most of the lake lots slope gently down to the lake.  So stairs are not need on most of the lots.

The children that live on the lake go to Bloomfield Hills Schools.

Gilbert Lakefront homes. 

Since the 1930's there have been big homes on the lake.  In fact there is on 1928 home that is 6100 square feet and a 1930's home that is 5100 square feet.   Gilbert Lakefront homes are all bigger.  Most of the homes range between 2000 and 4000 square feet, but there are some more that  are even bigger.

If you want an Oakland County Michigan lake home that isn't next to a tiny home or a run down unkept home Gilbert Lake may be for you!

Gilbert Lake properties are larger and more spacious.  Some lots have big mature trees and decent space between the houses.  This is another Oakland County Lake that you can find elbow room at a price of course.

Most of the lakefront lots range from .5 acre up to 2 acres.  Though there is at least one lot that is over 7 acres!  There are some homes that were built in the 1950's, but others were built in the 1970's and 1980's.

Most of the homes have brick exteriors, basements, attached 2+ car garages, 3+ bedrooms, and 2+ bathrooms.

        • cape cods
        • colonial style homes
        • ranches
    There has only been one Gilbert Lake home sold in the last three years.  It was a 1995 square foot ranch, built in 1976, 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, 2 car garage on 1.73 acres that sold for $530,000.
        I hope this helps you understand what kind of prices to go for.

Every weekend Detroiter pack up the car each to drive three, four, five hours to get to their lake.  They may be driving to Houghton Lake, Higgins Lake, Opal Lake, or Torch Lake to name a few of the many beautiful lakes up north.  They head up on Friday fighting the traffic on I-75 or 23 or 27.  To skip fighting the traffic they will either take off another day early or come back on Tuesday.

So why do all of that.  We have so many beautiful lakes within an hour of metro Detroit.  My own cottage is only 15 minutes away.  What you say 15 minutes?  Whether it is 15 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour, or 4 hours away it is all the same.  Your lake cottage is your get away from the real world.  It is your escape place.  Your place to go to unwind.  A place to recharge.  To have fun and make memories with the family.

I myself do not want to be worn out and tired when I get to my lake home.  You should not be frustrated from fighting the traffic.  You should not have to leave early to beat the traffic.  You do not need to cut a beautiful Sunday afternoon short because you want to beat the traffic jam and the snarl of traffic. 

So why drive 4 hours?  So why cut your Sunday afternoon short when you can have a beautiful lake home within an hour of home.  So call me today on my cell at (248) 310-6239 to start on your local lake home search!
