Bloomfield Hills Although Bloomfield Hills is small size (five square miles) and has alimited population it features some of the most beautiful residential settings in the country as well as an exclusive quality of life. Houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, Eero Saarinen, J. Robert F. Swanson and MinoruYamasaki can be found along its winding residential roads. Many of these estates are graciously secluded behind ivied walls and lush landscaping. Caretaker or in-law cottages, terraced gardens and ponds, private tennis courts and swimming pools are standard features for these one-of-a-kind estates. New construction is also evident with the new enclaves offering unparallel luxury for city residents, many of whom are high achievers in business, education, the professions and the arts. Private schools, religious institutions and private clubs occupy approximately 10-15% of Bloomfield Hills. The Cranbrook Educational Community alone covers 315 acres. While most of these clubs and institutions do not pay taxes the contribution they make to the truly unique social, spiritual and intellectual tradition and lifestyle of Bloomfield Hills cannot be duplicated or replaced.
