Property description

'The Real McCoy House' is the perfect place to spend your vacation. I have a breath taking view of Lewis Smith lake no matter which way you look. Walk out onto the 12'X 50' porch upstairs or down. Walk off the porch on a deck that connects to a 4 person tram car and rides down to a deck which connects the ramp onto your floating covered boat dock with a swim deck. Fishing is great. Bring your Seadoos and boats. You have a 6-8 person hot tub for your relaxation under the stars.

This wonderful vacation retreat is private and set up for a large family or business getaway. This lake house was new in 2008 and has hardwood floors upstairs and tile downstairs. You are about a mile out of the city limits of Arley. It's a small town and has most anything you need. Arley is approximately 30 minutes from Jasper or Culman and not far from Birmingham. There is a gourmet kitchen that has all stainless steel appliances with all granite counter tops and a bar downstairs. You have gas fireplaces upstairs and down for that perfect evening. Downstairs you have a big screen TV great for those ball games, or catching your favorite TV shows.

3rd cleanest lake in North America.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I own Mortgage Team 1 in Mobile Alabama and I am President Elect for the Alabama Mortgage Brokers Association. I have been in the mortgage business since 1993. I have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. This lakehouse is a wonderful place to bring a family and enjoy lake life. I own Dream Catcher Pointe which is right across the water. I have 19 lake lots for sale, 12 are on deep water. They have approved floating boat dock permits, the road and utilities already put in so you are ready to build your new lake home.

Why the Owner Chose Lewis Smith Lake:
I live in Mobile and after Katrina, I decided to find a place far enough from the Gulf Coast to find refuge from the yearly storms. I know many others who felt the same way so I looked for a place to start a community to bring a huge family when they wanted and needed to get away. I wanted luxury while away from our homes. When I found Smith Lake, it was like a little peice of heaven and the best kept secret. I named our subdivion Dream Catcher Pointe.
