More About Shelby Township Real Estate
Neighborhoods on either side of Shelby Township's central Van Dyke Avenue host many of the area's more well-established homes. Built from the 1940s onward, these homes display classic 20th-century architectural trends in a combination of brick and clapboard.
Large ranch and split-level homes on spacious yards are found throughout these areas, with a mix of newer constructions as well. Newer homes in these areas tend towards more Colonial, farm-like trends, yet maintain the overall aesthetic of understated elegance.
Yards are often simple, with gentle green lawns running right up the road, no fences, and one or two well-established trees for shade. Back lots are large enough to accommodate pools, sheds, and detached garages in some cases, with ample space for large pets or for kids to play.
Similar trends are also evident in some of Shelby Township's more outlying neighborhoods, only on a smaller scale in single-story cottages and bungalows. For example, Shelby Village in southwest Shelby Township displays some of these simple new-traditional homes. These properties are perfect for those just entering the real estate market, or those looking to downsize into a simpler, more economical space.
The outskirts of Shelby Township have, in recent years, seen a lot of residential development. The newer homes in these areas draw from an eclectic mix of traditional European styles and trends. Palladian windows, voussoir and quoin details, tall complex roof-lines, decorative stone work, towers, and imposing entryways are some of the common features at this end of the market.
In Shelby's newer luxury homes, expect open interiors with kitchen islands, integrated appliances, spa-like 5-piece bathrooms, walk-in closets, tall ceilings, and over-sized garages.
