Lakefront homes for sale Silver Lake Waterford MI

Enjoying the lake today!

I have had the chance to help sell several lake homes on Silver Lake in Waterford, and help buy a nice home on the lake.   I have even rented homes on the lake.  It is a beautiful lake.  Not huge but big enough to water ski, tube, and wake board on.  This is one lake that is never super busy.  It is a private all sports lake that has many beautiful homes on it.  I would say the majority of the homes are going to cost $400,000 +.  There are very few small lake cottages left on the lake.

For a great waterfront living experience, Silver Lake in Waterford, Michigan is a prime location.  This 101 acre lake has a variety of waterfront properties.  On one side of the lake, all the waterfront homes are rather large, while the North side has more of a range of sizes.  Being a completely private lake, some of the homes on Silver Lake in Waterford are part of an association through Michigan Lake Estates.  Many of the homes are brick exteriors and some have walkouts.  Still, Silver Lake waterfront residents can enjoy all sports activities on the water.  Silver Lake is a beautiful place for lake enthusiasts to call home, right in Waterford, Michigan.

Waterfront homes on Silver Lake differ from one side of the lake to the other.  On one side of Silver Lake is a newer subdivision street that has big newer brick colonials that were built in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.  On the other side is the smaller lake homes that were built as early as the 1920’s.  There are still some nice larger brick homes on the north side of the lake but there are some older homes there too.   I have noticed that there has been a lot of remodeling of homes on the lake in the last several years. There even was a vacant lot there in 2013.

Silver Lake does not connect to Upper Silver Lake or any other lake so that you can take a motor boat to.  However you can kayak to Loon Lake and that chain.   Here is a quick link to search our local lake homes by specific lake using the map tool.

Here is a glimpse of waterfront homes on Silver Lake in Waterford Township Michigan

  • Lake frontage                       50 -100′
  • Lot size                                  no large acreage on lake
  • Home square footage         the approx. range is 800-3400
  • Average size of homes       varies from one side of the lake to the other
  • age of homes                        1920’s -2000’s

I have sat looking out the window when I have done open houses and watched the wildlife go by.  I have been there at many different times of the day and many days of the week and very seldom have I seen more than two boats on the lake at any one time.  It will be a calmer lake with not a lot of craziness or partying going on.  Because it is a smaller private lake boater and people on the lake will take care of the lake better.  I like the lake a lot.

If you are looking for a lake home or thinking of selling soon…..I understand the lake lifestyle.  I will be able to guide you because I love living on the lake.  I can take the stress and solve any problem that comes up whether you are buying or selling.  Give me a call at (248) 310-6239
