We continue our series on the most expensive homes on the market in Metro Detroit today. We started Sunday in the City of Bloomfield Hills on Vaughan Road. Tuesday found us in Bloomfield Township’s gated community, Turtle Lake, at a home on Turtle Ridge.
Today we’ve got our third spec home in this series, this time in Birmingham.
Lake Park street is home to Birmingham’s only two homes on the market over $4,000,000. Construction on one of the two homes has not begun, so presumably, the potential purchaser can make lots of choices on finishes. The street’s most expensive homes are on or across from Quarton Lake, the only lake in Birmingham. The lake recently underwent an extensive and expensive cleanup/re-landscaping project that included a new dock, walking paths and new benches.
When I was a kid, and lived across from the lake, the City of Birmingham used to clear the ice in the winter for skaters. That ended a few years ago when the city’s large snow cleaning tractor fell through the ice in what had to be an expensive accident. Dmitry and I watched from the side – nobody was hurt. When we were there, the Fox news chopper was hovering overhead getting footage, and the City Manager was standing on the shore looking none too pleased. But I digress…
222 Lake Park is marketed by SKBK Sotheby’s International Realty. The asking price for the home is $9,750,000. We’ve been watching from the other side of the lake as this house goes up. The terraced landscaping has been in place for a while and the house is well underway. The home has a very unique setting on the lake, near the island and the waterfall, and it is almost unseen from the Lake Park. Most homes on that side of Lake Park have dense tree coverage at the shore-line, and they are set so far back from the lake that they don’t take advantage of the view. 222 Lake Park seems to be smartly designed to capitalize on the beauty of the site.
It will have:
- An 8 car garage
- 11,000 square feet of living space
- 6 bedrooms, 8 baths and 3 half baths
The home is being built by Valstone Group. We showed a few of their other beautiful Birmingham residences this week, and we know Lake Park will exceed expectations.
If you are interested in 222 Lake Park, we would be happy to assist you. If it’s not exactly what you were looking for, we’ll find you something else. Stick with us, we’ve got more Oakland County luxury homes coming over the next few days.
