                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: After living near the ocean in the Myrtle Beach area, it is wonderful to swim in a freshwater lake. No sand, no hurricanes, no traffic, the life is easy and the climate mild. Plus, there aren't any alligators in the water!

                  Why the Owner Chose Henrico:
                  Lake Gaston is a well kept secret. When traveling on I-85, one crosses the lake at an unscenic location. When one is traveling on I-95, there is no hint that a gorgeous lake is just to the west. Even within North Carolina, people do not know about Lake Gaston. It is a pleasure living here and enjoying the perfect climate. Local concert and theatre opportunities: Royal Palace Theatre, Roanoke Rapids, NC The Centre, Weldon, NC Lakeland Theatre, Littleton, NC Ridgeway Opry House, Ridgeway, NC Meherrin River Arts Council, Emporia, VA Cherry Hill Plantation, Warrenton, NC Henderson Community Concert Association, Henderson, NC The Dunn Center, NC Wesleyan College, Rocky Mount, NC ArtBank of Southside Virginia, Lawrenceville, VA A unique destination is the Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park, 4963 Hwy 258 Scotland Neck, NC. There are waterfowl from every continent at this park. It is an hour from the house, but well worth the visit.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Adam Fields' Wakeboard School is right around the corner. Enroll in day/week classes. WakeSurfNC is across the lake. Enroll in day/week classes.
