Michigan's first inland settlement in
1818, Pontiac was later incorporated
as a city in 1861 and is now an urban historian's dream!   Pontiac's central location, architecture and diversity is drawing new investment, and is becoming one of Michigan's prime hip urban centers.

An exceptional example of Tudor Revival architecture, complete with classic uses of half-timbering, rough-sawn siding and cut stone inlay.  The original stucco detailing
also is intact. This grand estate was built
​by a prominent Pontiac physician, and is one of the early homes built in Seminole Hills.

149 Ottawa Dr. • Historic Seminole Hills Community

Adding to the colorful fabric of the gorgeous Seminole Hills Historic District, 149 Ottawa Drive offers its new owners the chance to appreciate so many stately, custom features ~ rare vintage leaded windows… some with stained glass, and others with colored glass crests which are still intact from when they were created in the 1920’s. Forged wrought iron balusters – not aluminum! – as well as a forged wrought iron newel post…original architectural components which would be phenomenally expensive to replicate at today’s costs. A carved limestone fireplace.  Detailed plaster reliefs are on walls and on ceilings, while also found in hallways and in ceiling medallions…none of which were mass produced in a factory. Rather, they were created on-site by true artisans, and are still in their original pristine condition.

The Seminole Hills Historic District, and the neighboring Ottawa Hills Subdivision, are relatively undiscovered jewels in the heart of Oakland County. The tree-lined streets gently roll and curve as you travel them. Hundreds of beautiful homes display their incredible charm & unique styling, with the vast majority having been constructed between the 1920’s and the 1940’s.

Some Detroit neighborhood names you may know: Boston Edison, Palmer Park, Indian Village & Rosedale Park. These areas, along with Dearborn Hills, Vinsetta Park, Oakland Manor, Poppleton Park & others, are more commonly known communities.
Guess what? They have VERY similar architectural styles to Pontiac's Seminole Hills & Ottawa Hills!
