Residents Of Glen Oaks Enjoy
Perfect Picture Of Luxurious Living

When Phyllis and Joseph Kelleher
moved to Glen Oaks in Novi three
months ago from a two-story, four-
bedroom colonial home in South-
field, they weren't convinced apart-
ment living was the right choice.
But the Kellehers have been
pleasantly surprised.
"It's our first apartment in 30 years
and we have loved every minute of
it," Phyllis said. "There are so many
things I like. It is absolutely beautiful.
It is private and spacious — there was
less space -in our big house."
She echoes sentiments of other
residents who live in the ranch style
apartment homes that are surround-
ed by 16 acres of spring fed lakes,
woods and state-of-the-art recrea-
tional facilities.
Billed as a perfect picture of lux-
urious living, Glen Oaks apartments
provide residents with a perfect
blend of lush natural beauty in a
woodland setting with ponds and
streams and a lifestyle of sleek
Each of 90 apartments, about
2,300 sq. ft. a unit, is enhanced by
a 440-square-foot living room, cove
ceilings, oak doors, a utility room,

two bedrooms, two baths and an all-
year round enclosed porch with pella
Apartments, which range from
$1,100 to $1,400 a month, come
complete with privileges to an in-
door pool, sauna, whirlpool, and ex-
ercise equipment. The complex'
three units are connected by the
health spa. Twelve completely fur-
nished corporate suites also are
available for $2,000 a month.
At Glen Oaks, residents enjoy
underground parking and sound
proof units. Also on location is a
helicopter landing pad, and a win-
ding lake for fishing, sailing and
The location is ideal, boasts
management consultant Sylvia Stern.
Just across the street from Twelve
Oaks Mall, which is off 1-96, resi-
dents can quickly get to 1-275, the
Lodge Freeway and Twelve Mile Road.
And security, Stern adds, is
"They bend over backwards to
make it pleasant and secure for you
here," said resident Ruth Stenman,
who has lived at Glen Oaks for two
years with her husband, Clifford,


and son, Bryan. "I just love it."
Stenman said she is exceptionally
pleased with the complex 24-hour
manned security operation. Apart-
ments are soundproof, and each has
a private security system. A guard
opens the front gate for guests, who
must fill out information cards to in-
sure safety of the residents.
Residents can even watch their
own guests arrive by flicking the
switch of a remote control for a
special cable television channel.
"If you see that your guests are
dressed nicer than you are, you can
change quickly," Stern jokes.
"It's a year-round resort," Stern
says. "You can't get luxury apart-
ments like these around here with
such a beautiful view."
An open house with wine and hors
d'oeuvres is scheduled for March 26
and 27 from noon until 5 p.m. in the
clubhouse. Any first time renter who
signs a lease before March 31 will get
one-half of the first month's rent for
