Neighborhoods - King


Bookmark and Share

Nestled in an upscale, woodsy 1960s subdivision on the northeast side, King Elementary draws students from both sides of US-23 and is known for its diverse international population with families at the school representing more than 25 countries.

The winding streets north of Glazier offer colonial, ranch, and tri-level homes. Young families, retirees, and single people live in King's mature subdivisions and apartment buildings. On the hilly terrain south of Glazier are contemporary custom-built homes on big lots in natural settings, with neatly landscaped townhouses and condominiums along Huron Pkwy.

East of US-23 is a growing area of low-density development with prime freeway access and office parks. Off Dixboro Rd. are Radrick Meadows and Fleming Creek, both with large single-family homes. Farther east, off Gale, is the retreatlike Matthaei Farm community, with expensive custom-built homes. Woodlands of Geddes Glen luxury sub is just north of Geddes. To the south, private drives wind away to carefully isolated riverfront mansions, as well as the elegant Towsley Farms and Geddes Glen developments.

The 501-unit GreenBrier and 216-unit Village Park apartment complexes are within walking distance of King. Other students are bused from Arrowwood Hills Cooperative (350 townhouse units) and the 520-unit Haven of Ann Arbor on Dixboro Rd.

Major condominiums include the 174-unit Earhart Village, the 103-unit Laurel Gardens along Dixboro Rd., and the 360-unit Geddes Lake on Huron Pkwy.-a resident calls Geddes Lake "an island of affordability" in the city's pricey east side.

Clague Middle School and Huron High serve the entire King area.
