Lake Burton house description

Comfortable luxury on the water's edge, this distinctive timber frame home is a favorite among ‘lake people’. It was built in 1995 and has been on the Lake Burton Tour of Homes. It has a double car garage attached by a breezeway to the main house. The road and driveway are paved right up to the stone entry walkway. Lake frontage is a very accessible 275 feet.

Special features include extensive waterfront amenities. The large boathouse has a full deck on top, half shaded by a metal roof. This is a great spot to sit in the rain in the rocking chairs with a glass of wine wrapped in a blanket. The hammock is a quiet place to watch the water or sneak in a nap. Southern exposure allows sunshine from mid-morning until sunset. Views are panoramic east to west. 150 feet of boardwalk connects the boathouse to the swimming dock. Three swimming ladders make for easy access into and out of the water.

The house has a large deck just at the water’s edge -- great for entertaining. Shaded most of the day, this is the perfect place to fire up the gas grill, pour the cocktails and watch the waterfront activities all within a few steps of the kitchen. The large outdoor dining table seats 8-10+.

The heart of the home is the Kitchen/Living Room/Dining Room area. A stacked stone fireplace is centered between tall windows framing a view of the lake. This space is perfect for relaxation or casual entertaining. There is high-definition satellite flatscreen TV with Apple TV and a Bluray DVD player. The gourmet Kitchen is fully equipped with a 6 burner gas cook top, ice maker, double convection ovens, microwave, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and wine refrigerator. It has an island for food preparation and a separate bar/counter running the length of the Kitchen. This is a favorite place to snack, have a drink, and just hang out while dinner is cooking. There is a walk-in pantry and separate laundry room nearby.

The Master Bedroom is on the main level and has a queen sized bed. It also has a stacked stone fireplace with a seating area, ideal for a quiet place to read while the children watch a movie in the Living Room -- or let the children watch a movie on the flat screen, Apple TV set up here and stay in the Living Room yourselves. Step right out onto the large deck and relax by the water. The Master Bath has separate sinks and a tub/shower. There are two closets. Like all of the bedrooms in the house, there is a great view to the lake.

The loft above the Kitchen has an office (if you must work) and lounge seating. There is a printer/fax machine as well as high-speed wireless internet and broadband cable. There is good cell phone coverage at the house and out on the lake.

The two bedrooms upstairs share a balcony and bathroom. One bedroom has a double bed the other has a pair of twin beds. The bunk room above the garage has a double bed, sleeper sofa, and supply of sleeping bags. It has a full bath. It has hosted many slumber parties. It has a deck over looking the lake.

The main house has heat and air conditioning. Most people can’t resist the clean mountain air.

Children are welcome. There are lots water toys, as well as board games, indoor toys, and videos. There is a 'tree house' (with light and electricity) just for them up from the driveway. It has its own small deck overlooking the lake. It is great fun to fish from the docks. The brim, trout, and bass love to play hide-and-seek in the rocks lining the lake bed.

Rent or bring your own boat with 3 places to tie up.

Lake Burton is the crown jewel of the North Georgia lakes. It has clean water, clean air, fabulous views, and abundant wild life. The mountains of the southern Appalachians come right down to the water. Even in the height of summer you’ll need a sweater after night fall. We’ve seen many kinds of water fowl - bald eagles, great blue herons, kingfishers - along with deer, beavers, foxes, and even bears. All this just 2 hours drive from Atlanta.

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About the owner: Dick and Anne Vincent have been enjoying Lake Burton for decades and still love it. Our home is informal, but equipped with all modern conveniences. We’ve enjoyed great times with family and friends in this beautiful setting. Anne has used her professional interior design experience to keep casual comfort in mind. Our collection of artwork, accessories, and furnishings showcases the work of local and regional artists. Family heirlooms bring a sense of our family history to this special place. Our primary residence is in Atlanta, but we have children spread over 8 time zones so we travel frequently. Even so, we always look forward to our next visit to Lake Burton.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Burton:
              Lake Burton is a world away in a short 2 hour drive from Atlanta. You can take part in a wide variety of area activities or just enjoy 'kicking back' and doing nothing at all. The scenic beauty and expanse of clean water soothe the soul.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our home sits at the end of a private drive right at the water. The boathouse deck is on the same level as the house. The boardwalk and swimming dock are just a few steps down from the house. The southern exposure and panoramic view means a sunset every evening of the year weather permitting. A great place for family and friends to congregate by the water.
