Featured Neighborhood: Bishop Woods

A beautifully serene, well-established neighborhood in the Marquette Township South area, Bishop Woods is an ideal choice for homebuyers looking to enjoy peace, space and privacy without having to give up access to shops, restaurants, and the dynamic arts and culture scene of Downtown Marquette. There’s plenty of room for growing families here in this tranquil, deeply wooded community, with its tree-lined streets and homes set far back from the road.

Real Estate

The housing market in Bishop Woods features comfortably sized single-family homes, typically with 4 to 5 bedrooms, on large lots boasting verdant, mature landscaping. The architectural styles tend towards the traditional and some homes even come with expansive grounds that extend to several acres in size. There are still some lots that are available as well if you’d prefer to have your home custom-built.

In and Around the Neighborhood

Located south of Trowbridge Park, Bishop Woods is no more than a hop, skip and jump away from Brookton Corners, where you’ll find a variety of shops and restaurants. There’s a Walmart Supercenter here as well as a Menards. The Westwood Mall, which is anchored by Kohls and MC Sports, is also close by.

Love to golf? Bishop Woods is right by the Marquette Golf Club and its 36 holes of superb championship golf. A semi-private club that’s been the Upper Peninsula’s premier golfing destination since 1926, it features two courses. The older 18-hole Heritage course offers different experiences on its front and back nines. The newer Mike DeVries-designed 18-hole Greywalls course, with its dramatic terrain and long-range Lake Superior views, was dubbed the “#2 course you can play in Michigan” by GolfWeek when it opened in 2005.   

Bishop Woods is also just minutes away from downtown, Northern Michigan University, and the lakefront. Contact me if you’d like to learn more about the neighborhood and what makes it a great place to live!
