The rest of “The Pointes” as they are known, are comfortable, older and relatively affordable communities full of big, conventional colonials on shady streets with sidewalks. The people who live in them run the gamut from longtime residents to newlyweds and young families who like the idea of living in a town with an active Young Republicans Club. Upper middle class people who work Downtown at Wayne State, Detroit Medical Center, Henry Ford Hospital, GM headquarters or Compuware, but want a suburban lifestyle and a reasonable commute.
Less pricey than Bloomfield Hills. Bloomfield Township has plenty of roomy houses on big wooded lots and it shares Bloomfield Hill’s great schools, but it doesn’t have the mansions, the cachet or the taxes. Young families on the way up will be your neighbors. Live on one of West Bloomfield’s half-dozen lakes and you may have rich neighbors. If you don’t live lakeside, West Bloomfield is a pleasant suburban mix of ranchers, colonials and condos with convenient shopping. Soccer moms will feel at home here.
Trenton has grown increasingly upscale in recent years with dozens of new waterfront condominiums and trendy restaurants. The main street has everything from art galleries to the American Legion. The schools are well regarded and the town has lots of amenities, all paid for by car company tax dollars. Many young couples find buying and fixing up a house here an attractive proposition.
Grosse Ile is an island in the Detroit River where wealthy Detroiters had summer homes in the early part of the 20th century. Now it’s a desirable suburb where executives who work in Downriver industrial headquarters live year-round.
Gibraltar is a waterfront community on the Detroit River. There are three times more boats than houses here, and it’s still possible to buy lakefront property for under $300,000.
