Bloomfield Township

Welcome to Bloomfield Township

A first-rate, family-oriented lifestyle awaits

Centrally-located Bloomfield Township is an idyllic community that offers plenty to those who cherish a family-centered lifestyle. From new parents just starting their families, households relocating to establish deeper roots, and even empty nesters looking to keep multiple generations centered— life revolves around family here. 

Yet, even though Bloomfield Township is 95% residential, you won't find families squeezed into zero-lot-line homes.

Safe, tranquil, and often recognized as one of Michigan’s top communities to live and raise a family, there's plenty of space and plenty to love at every price point. There are large estate homes set amongst hills, lakes, and streams and more modest dwellings with easy access to some of the state's top schools. 

What to Love

  • Central location, easy access to Oakland County and the Greater Detroit metropolitan area 
  • Suburban lifestyle in a mature, idyllic locale 
  • Abundance of great restaurants and shopping within a few minutes’ drive 
  • Over 75 miles of walking, jogging, and biking paths

People & Lifestyle

The community is diverse, well-established, and educated—70% of adults hold at least a Bachelor's degree.

Even though it is one of the more populous cities in Oakland County, there is a very close, tight-knit connection between neighborhood and neighborhood with a healthy mix of young families and older retirees. 

A few of the more well-known individuals who grew up or resided in Bloomfield Township include Elizabeth Reaser, Robin Williams, Mitt Romney, and Aretha Franklin.

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment

Even with its predominantly residential zoning, there are several business and commercial districts situated along Telegraph Road, which serves as Bloomfield Township’s central thoroughfare.

Near Telegraph and West Maple is the modern Mexican restaurant MEX and the tavern Beau's Grillery. Further north, at Telegraph and Fairfax, you'll find the splendid Roadside B&G. Smaller commercial enclaves serving up surprises include the chic, new American Cafe ML in the Bloomfield Commons.

Major shopping hubs include Bloomfield Plaza, The Village at Bloomfield, and Bloomfield Town Square. 

For cinephiles, The Maple Theater is a must-see movie house that features the best of independent cinema and classic Hollywood films.

Things to Do

When it comes to golf, few locations in Michigan (or the U.S. for that matter) can claim the pedigree of Bloomfield Township's own Oakland Hills Country Club. In its 100-plus year history, the famed South Course has hosted 17 Major Championships, including six U.S. Opens, three PGA Championships, and a Ryder Cup.

The Detroit Skating Club, where Olympic Gold Medalist Tara Lipinski once trained, also calls the township home.

The Smith House, a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home located within the township, is available to tour through the Cranbrook Art Museum in neighboring Bloomfield Hills.

Speaking of architecture, to see one of the best examples of classic gothic design, visit the stunning Kirk in the Hills, a Presbyterian Church modeled after Scotland's Melrose Abbey.
