I am on the last leg of my grand Michigan tour in the Orchard Lake area of southeast Michigan. I grew up here and its where my parents live so I visited relatively often. Each time I visit, I become more and more grateful that this is where I grew up. The people are friendly, there are lakes everywhere and the four seasons are something not to be missed. My recommendation for local attractions are:
- It's A Matter of Taste - waterfront dining with too many yummy items to list
- Keego Harbor Specialty Sausage Co. - a great local source for sausage and other locally produced fare
- Detroit Garden Works - a beautiful garden store for the passionate gardener
- Mezza Mediterranean Grill - so good!
House #1: $0 - $250,000
This is parcel 2 of 3 that is currently for sale. The property is described as a tear down, however, I think there is real potential in the original house. The main attributes of this home is its lot with direct views and access to Morris lake and all the surrounding green.
House #2: $250,000 - $500,000
This home requires a special eye but could become a pretty cool midcentury home if the right renovations were made. Plus look at that amazingly clear water!
House #3: $500,000 - $750,000
I love the open floor plan and outdoor living space of this home. It is also located on a canal which gives you water access while providing a quieter setting.
House #4: $750,000 - $1,000,000
Located on a lake point with 154 feet of frontage, this home has water views from most of its rooms. It also has a separate garage with an apartment above which adds to its already sizable square footage.
Have a good weekend!
