King Neighborhood

The King school area is sliced in two by US-23. The west half is within the city limits, the east in Ann Arbor and Superior townships. The winding streets between Green and US-23 north of Glazier offer colonial, ranch, and tri-level homes built in the 1960s.

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 Parkway.

East of US-23 is a growing area of low-density development with prime freeway access and office parks. Several major residential developments lie along Dixboro Road south of Plymouth, including Laurel Gardens—a condo development with semi-detached one- and two-story units—and Radrick Meadows and Fleming Creek, both with large single-family homes.

Along Earhart are the Ridge, a small luxury condo development, and the Trillium Woods subdivision. The Arbors condos and the large Village Green apartments are on Dixboro near Geddes; farther east, off Gale, is the retreatlike Matthaei Farm community, with expensive custom-built homes. South of Geddes, private drives wind away to carefully isolated riverfront mansions, as well as the elegant Towsley Farms and Geddes Glen developments. Clague Middle School and Huron High serve the entire King area.
