The Bloomfield area is made up of 6 communities – Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Bingham Farms, Beverly Hills and Franklin. It is a sought-after area in which to live, to shop and for investment. While this grouping of communities represents a significant area of upscale living in central Oakland County, each community has its own individual personality.
Birmingham, with its central downtown shopping district, has a more urban quality with high-end retail, restaurants, and various housing options. Franklin gives a glimpse of the past with its quaint shopping district of boutique shops, markets, and eateries, along with a neighboring cider mill. Bloomfield Hills is known for its prestigious educational, religious, and cultural institutions. The community is the home to the internationally renowned Cranbrook Institute of Science and Art, the exclusive Bloomfield Hills Country Club, and the Bloomfield Open Hunt Club. With many large homesteads in beautiful settings, residents value the traditions of quiet, rural residential properties, wooded lots, and privacy. Bingham Farms and Beverly Hills are mostly residential, serving as bedroom communities to Birmingham and Detroit. Both have areas of commerce along Telegraph Road and Southfield Road. Bloomfield Township, which “surrounds” Bloomfield Hills, is more suburban with residential areas mostly in well-maintained subdivisions. It is home to outstanding public and private schools, sports venues, lakes and rivers, and large-scale retailers towards the north end of Telegraph road. Additionally, Bloomfield Hills and Bloomfield Township offer various selections of waterfront living.
The area’s distinctive personality lends itself to a diverse blend of residents and lifestyles. This diversity extends to the retail and restaurant offerings and to those who come not to live, but also to visit. Bloomfield’s location also makes it convenient to the vast number of cultural and recreational assets that are available in the Metro Detroit area. Truly a place to “live, shop, and play”, enjoy all that is around you, and appreciate this special way of life that is Bloomfield!
The Charter Township of Bloomfield is home to 41,000 people. Its 26 square miles are distinguished by rolling hills, winding roads, scenic lakes and streams. Located in Oakland County, Bloomfield Township is within easy reach of the area’s major thoroughfares and expressways. It provides a full range of public services, including its own police and full-time fire departments and road, water, and sewer divisions.

WHAT TO EXPECT
All the conveniences of downtown with its own cozy and unique atmosphere.
Green spaces were earlier integrated into the area, bringing pockets of laid-back calm to balance the hustle of the city.
Nothing is off the table in flourishing new developments. Pools? Fireplaces? You name it. With a spike in inventory, there’s room for great value, too.
Housing choices in Bloomfield Township range from magnificent estates on large lots to affordable homes for first-time buyers. Because 95% of the township is residential, there is a special emphasis on the needs of homeowners, but Bloomfield Township’s business community is thriving and growing. Several large, nationally-known corporations have recently moved into Bloomfield or expanded their existing facilities, creating a healthy mix with nearby smaller, independently-owned businesses.
Four public school systems – primarily Bloomfield Hills and Birmingham, and also Avondale and Pontiac – serve residents of the Township, as well as several excellent private and parochial schools.
Demographic information shows that the community’s population is widely diverse and exceptionally well-educated. The median income is one of the highest in the state. As a result of the area’s rich cultural mix, many of the world’s religions are represented by places of worship in Bloomfield Township.
