"King – A Truly Charming Neighborhood"

Located just northeast of central Ann Arbor, the King neighbohood offers a diverse selection of housing choices. Many houses were built in the area in the 1960s but there are plenty of older ones available too with a lot of personality. The houses here include many styles, including ranch, tri-level and colonial floor plans. In addition, King offers contemporary single family houses built on large lots as well as modern townhouses and condominiums with beautiful landscaping. The area east of US-23 is growing rapidly and as a result, there is constant development of new stores, restaurants and more.

Since this neighbourhood is east of the city, you are offered a more rural feeling. The area is a short drive from downtown Ann Arbor and its famous shopping and cultural events. Therefore, you’re minutes away from the nature, but you get to come home to a place with a lot less traffic and noise.

The neighbourhood is close to the University of Michigan's sprawling campus, one of the most desirable schools in the country. The King area has little crime and the local elementary school, King Elementary, was ranked 49th out of 1577 in Michigan elementary schools in 2011. Several local parks dot the landscape and provide an abundance of outdoor fun for anyone who loves being close to nature.

  • Safe
  • Diverse selection of homes
