Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a family of 4. My oldest daughter is married with a son, who loves to drive the boat with his grandpa. We live and work in Raleigh, and spend every free minute enjoying our 'happy place' We hope you enjoy it as well.

Why the Owner Chose Henrico:
We chose a home on Lake Gaston for the proximity to Raleigh, NC. Driving 1.5 hrs vs. driving 3 hrs to the beach made the difference for us. There is no comparison in traffic. Heading to the beach is bumper to bumper, we seldom see 5 cars at any given time. Convenient to Food Lion, Drug Store, Ace Hardware, Liquor Store, ATM, Gas Station with Wi-Fi, Pizza, Andy's, Morningstar Marina and restaurants. Our favorite dining spot is 'The Watersview Restaurant'. Adam Field's Wakeboarding School is also located in Lizard Creek

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home sits on a quiet cove, with spectacular views of the lake.
