SPECTACULAR ON STANFORD

ALTERNATIVE TAKE; BERKLEY BEAUTY.

It’s May, so in honor of Jeffy’s bday month, there is no more fitting a present for him than the gift of not reading.

Yup; pictures over words whenever possible with that guy.

Fortunately, our listing on Stanford just closed and we were able to sneak in before the Buyer took occupancy to grab a couple of snapshots of the finished product, by Mark Adler Homes.

We also had the birthday boy make a video while he was there and, based on his outfit, he is speedily evolving into Bruno Kirby’s character from City Slickers; we are putting the over/under at 18 months for how long it’ll take before he goes full “Ed” and has a picture of his own face on his jacket…

Enjoy the pics, do your best to get through the video (we recommend aggressive use of the mute button), and reach out to learn more about how you can build a beautiful home like this with Mark, or some of the other builders we work with!

LOT #15 | WHISPERING RIDGE ESTATES

The foundation is in, and progress is being made on this BRAND NEW/NEVER-BEEN-BUILT ranch floor plan by Strathdale Development. Featuring 3 bed/2.5 bath/2,450 sqft, a 3-car garage, and a ton of high-end finishes, we are excited to see this home take shape.

Located near Benstein & Glengary in Commerce, Whispering Ridge Estates is located in a particular section of the township that might be the only one which doesn’t require navigating 2-lane roads while winding around every lake in Oakland County, resulting in commute times that range from 30 min to the Donner Party. Yay! Connect with us for the details!


760 BOGIE LAKE | WHITE LAKE

If you’ve ever wanted to live on a peninsula within a peninsula (because Michigan) then this is the homesite for you.

With framing set to begin soon, Kensington Family Homes offers this new Craftsman ranch floor plan featuring 3 bed/2.5 bath and nearly 2,000 sqft, with an attached 3-car garage. High-end finishes abound, as well as plenty of spectacular wooded and water views.

The lot is even big enough that there’s enough space for an outbuilding by the water!

Connect with Lou and Jeff (if you’re already working with us), or reach out to Julie directly for the details.


OUR NOT NEW BUT NEW TO YOU COLLECTION

All of our current re-sale listings are under contract – YAY!

294 E. BROWN | BIRMINGHAM

Plans for the Restoration Hardware complex in Birmingham continue to expand, as a new building that will be adjacent to the RH building has been approved by the planning board. With frontage on E.

SUMMIT VIEW | MILFORD

Demo work has begun near the north side of Downtown Milford, on the site of a former manufacturing and storage facility; Summit View of Milford will feature 18 Brownstones and 44 single-family homes. With the project proceeding under a Brownfield Redevelopment Plan, remediation of the 8-acre site isn’t likely to be quick – the developer will have 2 years to complete the remediation phase of the project, with the potential for a 3rd year if necessary. Whether the single-family homes or Brownstones will be built first, will depend on market conditions when the remediation is complete… [read more]
