Welcome to Regency Hills!

Regency Hills

The Regency Hills subdivision is located in Shelby Township, Michigan and comprises 316 single-family homes.

It is within close proximity to shopping, churches, schools, and hospitals. It is only a short drive to I-75, M-53 and M-59 expressways providing easy access to all of southeast Michigan.

There is an abundance of entertainment, fitness facilities and restaurants within a short drive. Homeowners enjoy quiet streets, an abundance of trees, a friendly environment and walking or biking throughout our subdivision and neighboring subdivision streets.

All of the single-family homes are built on large, spacious lots with side entry garages enhancing the ambience of our well-maintained subdivision.

With a history that dates back to 1863, Yates Grist Mill opened its doors beside the rapidly flowing waters of the ‘then’ Clinton-Kalamazoo Canal, amidst the beautiful countryside of Rochester, Michigan.

By 1876, the Yates family installed a cider press into the existing water-powered process and began producing delicious Michigan cider. It then became known as Yates Cider Mill.

Our Homeowners' Association maintains the common areas throughout the subdivision for the benefit of all the homeowners.

Located in southeast corner of 25 Mile & Dequindre roads, the subdivision is a fairly new development in an area that used to be a wide expanse of apple orchards. In fact, one of the oldest cider mills in the United States, Yates Cider Mill - which has been operational since 1863 - is located only a mile from the subdivision.

Nature

Only a mile north of the subdivision is one of the top-rated public parks in Michigan: the Stony Creek Metropark. Extending across Oakland and Macomb counties, 4,461 scenic-acres abound with opportunity for outdoor recreation all year long.

Visitors can spend an afternoon boating or swimming in 500-acre Stony Creek Lake. Hike, bike, run or inline skate through lush woodlands, serene wetlands and tallgrass prairies. In the winter, walk, cross-country ski or snowshoe across marked trails. A winter sports area includes snowboard, sled and toboggan hills.
