Cullman house description

This three-level home sits on a secluded, wooded lake front lot with approx 150 feet of water frontage. It was designed for multiple families with kids. The view is absolutely spectacular with views of the beautiful clear water from all bedrooms, great room and game room. It has roughly 3100 square feet and has an additional 1700 square ft of decks and screen porches. There are two great rooms, one for the adults on the main level and a second for the kids (loft area). The main level great room has a tongue and grooved couffered ceiling with a wood-burn stone fireplace. Beautiful! The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops, and the kitchen also has breakfast area along with 2 additional bar stools for additional seating. For outdoor cooking, there is a large charcoal Weber grill on the main level deck overlooking the beautiful lake.

On the main level there is a master bedroom (queen), with two bedrooms on the upper level (queen in each, with pack n play crib and toddler bed in one of the upper bedrooms) that share a large bath with shower. Also, on the upper level is the loft area equipped with a sofa bed and TV/Stereo system. On the terrace level, there is a fourth bedroom (full and two bunks) with its own shower. All baths are tile and all baths are large showers only. No tubs.

On the main level, is a laundry room equipped with washer and dryer for your use.

The game room is on the terrace level equipped with foosball, pool table and one of the outside decks is right off the game room for easy access outside, where there is outdoor seating areas, table/4 chairs, 1 chaise lounge, AND a 5-man HOT TUB overlooking the lake. There is a small kitchen area, also, on the terrace level equipped with all appliances and ice maker for easy access to decks and lake area. ALL RAILINGS ARE CHILD-SAFE.

The new boat dock is a two slip dock with large swim platform and a covered area with table/4 chairs, plus 4 chaise lounges. There is a jet-ski platform for two jet-skis and 2 open boat slips for your use. In the on-season we have 60'+ of deep water off the end of our dock; in off-season we have 40'+ deep water off the end of the dock.

What attracted us to Smith Lake is that it is rated as the third cleanest lake in the country. There are 500 miles of shoreline and a depth of 265 feet at the dam with over 21,200 acres of water. Much of the lake is in the Bankhead National Forest with miles of undisturbed wooded shores and spectacular views of large rock shorelines, cliffs, waterfalls, rock overhangs, and other scenic features. Makes for some wonderful pontoon boat rides! No matter what type of leisure, water sports, sightseeing or fishing you prefer, the cleanliness and beauty of the lake make them all more enjoyable. But above all, probably to us, just the peacefulness the lake itself has to offer.

Note: The house is:
1) 15 minutes from 18-hole golf course
2) 10 min from 'local' restaurants; 15-20 min to a good variety of restaurants @ Cullman
3) 1 hour from Huntsville's NASA
4) 12 min from local grocery; interstate 65; gas stations
5) 15 min from a local Walmart- if you have to go !!
6) 10 min from a large antique mall.
7) 7 min from local ATV park (Stony Lonesome))
8) 3 min local access to boat ramp

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We grew up and have spent our entire life in Rome GA. My husband did a Military tour in Germany during the Vietnam War Era. We have 3 sons, 4 g'children and have always enjoyed boating. My husband built a ski boat when he was 16 and has been boating ever since. This is a picture of the owner, Bobby, with his first catch on Smith Lake, a 13 lb striper bass. We cooked it that very night (grilled) and it was delicious. He is a retired Traffic and Electrical Director from the city of Rome GA and has also enjoyed building spec homes in the past, but currently just enjoying retirement with wife, Sarah, who is retired from the Floyd County Board of Education as an Administrative Asst, but has stayed on part-time as receptionist for the System. Bobby and Sarah, Rome GA

Why the Owner Chose Cullman:
One of the reasons we chose Smith Lake was because it was rated the third cleanest in the US and it also has deep waters. We live in GA and we have found that the people in AL could not be more friendly and helpful in every direction we have gone.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One unique feature about our place is you can enjoy all the sun you want, OR you can enjoy a nice lounge in the shade. It is very peaceful at our house - no neighborhood noise; when my husband and I are there with or without our g'kids, we usually get out and do a morning walk when the weather is good before having bkfast.
