Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: David and Terry Crutchfield Birmingham, AL

Why the Owner Chose Arley:
We built this lake house from a Southern Living plan called the Spring Lake Cottage. We wanted to have plenty of room so that anyone who wanted to come to the Lake with us could come and we would have room for them (The house is about 5600 sq ft). However, the major reason is that Smith Lake is one of the cleanest lakes in the US (#2 I think) and the boating and fishing are great!! Convenient to groceries (5 mi) and restaurants, Wal-Mart, etc. in Jasper 20 miles.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is a white sandy beach right next door that we use for bon fires and beach parties. It is deeper when water is down in mid-late summer. There are high cliffs to jump off at certain points around the lake. Water depth across most of the Lake is around 150-200 ft deep.
