Because of its small size and limited population Bloomfield Hills features beautiful residential settings and an exclusive quality of life. It is a community of distinctive homes and architecture. Many of its one-of-a-kind residences are on estates graciously secluded behind ivied walls and lush landscaping. Terraced gardens, ponds, tennis courts and swimming pools are standard features. Private schools, religious institutions and private clubs occupy approximately 15% of Bloomfield Hills acreage. The contribution these clubs and institutions make to the Bloomfield Hills lifestyle cannot be duplicated or replaced.
