Welcome to Bagley

A century-old picturesque bedroom community with access to Detroit
 
Bounded to the south by McNichols, to the west by Wyoming Ave., the east by Livernois Ave., and to the north by West Outer Drive, Bagley is a centrally located sanctuary of winding tree-lined streets and charming homes perfect for anyone looking for a reprieve from the hubbub of city life without sacrificing urban amenities. 
 
Originally, the deeds belonging to the then-new locale of Bagley stipulated that the houses must be detached dwellings made of exclusively brick, stone, or concrete in order to create a distinct neighborhood atmosphere. Named after John J Bagley, a wealthy tobacco merchant and founding member of the Republican Party, Bagley attracted a diverse population during the mid-to-late 1900s and enjoys a lively community to this day. 
 
Complete with almost 5,000 homes, Bagley was created with careful forethought and planning. A map of curving avenues lined with trees gives the neighborhood a soft, shaded atmosphere complete with a pleasingly harmonious aesthetic made possible by the homes’ Tudor, French Renaissance, and other architectural styles.
 

Things to Love

  • Great quality of life to raise a family
  • One-of-a-kind architecture and history
  • Strong local schools and well-lit streets
 

People and Lifestyle

With unique, historic houses that are roomier than their city counterparts and notably quiet streets, neighborly ambiance, and proximity to shopping districts and downtown, Bagley is an excellent contender for those seeking a break from the sometimes-smothering life downtown. As a majority of residents own their homes, the neighborhood is very stable and highly educated, as a majority hold college degrees.
 

Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment

Larger than several of the surrounding suburbs but still interspersed with a myriad of green spaces in addition to spacious lawns and homes, Bagley enjoys a premier location bordered by many commercial must-sees.
 
With just a 10-minute drive to Ferndale shopping, dining, and entertainment, Bagley residents enjoy the contemporary downtown Ferndale area, which offers unique gifts, local fitness classes, and even self-care luxuries. For a more localized experience, try the nearby Gateway Marketplace, which offers over 340,000 square feet of enclosed retail and restaurant options sure to appease any visitor or resident. Along with that, Bagley is lucky to be located near the up-and-coming McNichol’s Strip, where new restaurants and shops are popping up all the time. 
 
To satisfy your sweet tooth, be sure to snag a treat from Good Cakes and Bakes, a whimsical bakery tucked into Livernois’ booming commercial district. Or, for a different vibe, you’d be remiss not to stop in the world’s oldest jazz club, Baker’s Keyboard Lounge, for some buzzing atmosphere, or even the Motor City Brewing Works for local beer and charming taproom. 
 

Schools

Bagley is home to many excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include:
 
  • University of Detroit Mercy
  • The School at Marygrove
  • University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy
  • Palmer Park Preparatory Academy
