Welcome to Bloomfield Hills
Space, luxury, and privacy in the heart of Metro Detroit
Bloomfield Hills is a quiet, suburban community located 20 minutes northwest of downtown Detroit. Despite its central location and close proximity to freeways, urban life, and other city conveniences, Bloomfield Hills maintains a rural aesthetic. Lush, mature trees planted over a hundred years ago tower over scenic driveways leading to some of the most spectacular, spacious, and private homes in Detroit.
Bloomfield Hills was first established when Oakland County was divided in two. The region was once used for farming until Detroit citizens began purchasing land to build larger homes with more space. Bloomfield Hills officially became a city in 1932 and is home to many sites on the List of National Historic Landmarks, including The Cranbrook Educational Community.

Bloomfield Hills residents work hard during the week and like to enjoy their weekends off, frequently spent at one of many private clubs. The Bloomfield Hills Country Club
was one of the first in Detroit, founded over a hundred years ago. It is the realized vision of a past group of influential locals, one of them being Henry Ford. The golf course was designed and brought to life by English golf expert, Harry Colt, who is arguably the world's best golf course architect. In addition to golf, most clubs in the neighborhood offer tennis courts, workout facilities, swimming, dining, and other benefits.
