Maceday/Lotus Lakes- Clarkston and Waterford Michigan Lakefront Real Estate Sales
Maceday and Lotus are both all sports lakes and are connected for a total acreage of 419 acres. Maceday Lake is located in Waterford Michigan. The majority of Lotus Lake is located in Waterford Township, but the northern tip falls into Independence Township (more commonly known as Clarkston). There is a public access site at Williams Lake Rd. just east of Maceday Lake Rd.
Maceday and Lotus Lakes are all sports lakes- great for the water skier or jet skier in the summer and snowmobiler in the winter.
For the fisherman, Maceday Lake is a designated trout lake and was stocked last fall with 1,000 lake trout and with some of the fish being up to 18 inches long and ranging in age from 2-4 years. Maceday Lake was also stocked with 12,000 rainbow trout last year and another 12,760 rainbow trout earlier this year (April, 2010). It was stocked with 15,000 splake (brook trout/lake trout cross) in March of 2009 and 13,300 in April of this year.
Of the 12 sales showing in the MLS for 2009, 3 were bank owned and 3 were short sales. When I checked a couple weeks ago for 2010 there were 5 closed sales reported with only 1 bank owned, but 3 short sales. Sales this year were ranging from $100K-$435K. in 2005 sales ranged from $245K- $1,150,000. Also keep in mind that there were probably some sales back in 2005 that sold by owner, or were reported as $1 so wouldn't have shown up in my searches.
