Offering one of northern Oakland County’s best locations, Kings Cove presents itself with an “up north” kind of beauty and “feel”. Built in the early 70’s the Cove is nestled into a wooded, rolling landscape allowing each change of season to offer a stunning rendition of the surroundings. Especially beautiful, is the spectacular array of fall colors that frame this unique community.
Another feature of the Cove’s location is the “Paint Creek Trail” which, at some points, is only a short walk from the patios and yards of the units that make up the Cove. This popular walking and nature trail will take you into downtown Rochester (to the south) or Lake Orion (to the north). Because of its proximity to the Paint Creek, wooded areas and ponds, the Cove provides a natural habitat for the many deer and other wildlife that residents frequently see at dusk and dawn in the common areas of the site.
The variety of building elevations make for a very pleasant and comfortable first impression. Floor plans that offer living areas of 1,000 to 1,700 square feet make the Cove an easy choice for a wide variety of age groups and families. A spacious Clubhouse, Pool and Tennis Courts round out the desirable amenities of this community that, over the years, has become a favorite among local realtors.
On-site staffing consists of a Community Manager, Mr. Jim Dafoe (available Tuesdays and Thursdays 9am to 5pm) and Management Coordinator, Ms. Carol Cooper (available 9:30am to 2pm Mondays and Wednesdays). The office is closed on Fridays. Maintenance Supervisor, Jeff McCarty, is on site daily. This staff, along with our managing agent, AMI, provide information and support services for all co-owners.
The Annual Meetings of the Association are generally held in May or June of each year and provides for the election of co-owners to the Board of Directors. There are seven (7) co-owners who serve on the Board of Directors of the Association. With a few exceptions, Board meetings are usually held on the 4th Thursday of each month.
With a strong Board and the assistance of professional management, Kings Cove has aged gracefully and enjoys an excellent reputation for being an extremely well maintained property with a dynamic plan for ongoing maintenance; strong financial planning, and a vision for continuous improvement.
Co-owners, prospective buyers and realtors are expected to acquaint themselves with the Bylaws and Rules and Regulations of the Association that are posted on this website. No unit may be rented or leased to a non co-owner occupant during the first two years of ownership after unit purchase.
A significant history of King’s Cove has been posted in our Co-Owner Resident Information Section. Early research by Cove resident Nancy Unwin with further extensive research by Sharon Muir, PhD., also a former Cove resident, has resulted in the excellent article detailing the “Cove’s” history that is posted on this website.
