Maceday Lake Homes Waterford MI

Maceday Lake homes Waterford MIYou will find just about any type of home you want on Maceday Lake.  There are some small lake cottages/ lake homes that were built during the 1920 -1960's.  They are typical of so many Oakland County Lake homes that were built during that area.  Small bedrooms, small kitchen, one bathroom, and a  small living room.  Usually the kitchen is furthest away from the lake and the bedrooms on the side.  Back in those days most of them were built on crawl spaces or on a slab.  Many times they never built a garage because it was just a weekend getaway place.

Ranch style homes on the lake range from 900 square feet to over 3200 square feet. Some of the older ranches and bungalows date back to the 1920's. Colonials and contemporary style homes range from 1800 square feet to over 5000 square feet.There are homes that sell for over a million dollars on the lake.  There is almost any size home and home style that you could want on Maceday Lake. Children that live on the lake will either attend Clarkston Schools or Waterford Schools.

Maceday Lake connects to Lotus Lake. There is a paved DNR access ramp that allow 16 parking spots.   There are two islands in the lake totaling 21 acres, so the surface area of the lake is really 231 acres. It connects to Lotus Lake through a shallow canal on the north end. Tree stumps in this area indicate the lake was several feet lower in the recent past than it is now. The level was probably raised when the dam was installed in Waterford to create Van Norman Lake.  Maceday Lake has 18888 feet of shoreline, not including the islands. The elevation of the lake is 966 feet above sea level. The lake is in the Clinton River basin.

Public access is available on Williams Lake Rd on the South side of the lake.

Have you been considering buying a waterfront property in Oakland County or Livingston County?  There are so many beautiful lakes and lakefront homes close by.  I always wonder why people drive up north for 3, 4, or 5 hours when they can have the same enjoyment here.    No fighting rush hour or holiday weekend traffic to get up north.  I know so many people that have lake cottages less than an hour away.  I know one guy that drives 25 minutes.  So he can wrap up a day on the lake when the sun goes down and still have time to relax at home. No fighting traffic on I-75 or 23.  Search Southeastern Michigan lake estates & waterfront homes by map.  Zoom in on the lake or area to find your dream lake home!

So many times I will get calls from potential lake home buyers.  They have is expecting a similar pricing to non lake homes.  Some buyers think there may be just a slight increase in the price of a lake home.  In 2014 I have been telling lake home buyers that it is hard to find even a cottage that is in good shape under $200,000 on a big all sports lake.  Many in the under $200,000 have major issues.  There are just not that many lake homes on big all sports lakes under $200,000.

To find a "normal home" or "normal ranch home" on a good sized all Sports Lake with a basement under $250,000 is hard to find too.  There are so few of them.  You will find more of them in the $275 - $325,000 range. 

Modern updated homes are harder to find on a lake.  If you want that modern house on good lakefront lot (not on a narrow lot) you most likely are going to be paying $500,000 + to find a nice modern lake home with the modern amenities with open layout, granite counter tops,  and nice master bedroom suite.  You are probably going to be closer to $600,000 + range.
