Relax in upscale style in this gated European estate on deep water. This luxurious three level home with greater than 9000 sq feet of living space provides beautiful lake vistas from most every room. The main level is truly stunning. From the moment you enter the front two story foyer, the well appointed formal living room with gas fireplace will simultaneously invite you in and take your breath away. If you can pry yourself past this room, next door you find the spacious open family room with bountiful seating, flat screen HDTV, gaming table, and walls of lake-view windows. This level also contains the fully loaded gourmet stainless and granite professional kitchen with eating space for 20 at your choice of a formal dining room, casual dining room, kitchen bar and family room table.

Two spacious bedrooms with private baths are just down the hallway on this main level.
The custom hand forged wrought iron curved staircase leads you to the garden level. Here there is a second fully outfitted stainless kitchen to make two or more family stays easier.

There are two additional full bathrooms, one with access to the pool area. The nautical themed great-room area with adjacent game room provides ample seating for family gatherings and the kitchen bar provides additional space for eating and entertaining.

If you prefer a break from the fun in the sun, try your luck at ping pong, foosball, cards at the two gaming tables, or the many board games provided in the gaming areas.
Steps take you down to the gradually sloping 200 foot trail to the double slip covered boat dock. Here views of mountains, lake, fish & wildlife abound.

About the owner: We are Georgia transplants since 1991. Although we have traveled throughout the world, we are continually amazed at the beauty of Lake Lanier. We also absolutely love sharing our home with guest from around the US and the world. Always exceeding our guests expectations has become an obsession for us. We and our staff work tirelessly to make sure our guest's experience is without equal. Come stay with us and let us prove it to you.
Why the Owner Chose Gainesville: This property is truly a magical place on Georgia's largest lake. It sits on a beautiful piece of land where it is perfectly positioned to provide pristine views of the lake. We love the privacy it's high hedges, large lot, and private gate provide. And it's close proximity to Gainesville and Atlanta allows our guests to have it all.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: We love the ability to enjoy this beautiful lake with a large group of friends and family. The home itself is just a blast with it's unique character and surprises around every corner. It's position on deep water assures lake access no matter the lake level. Endless hours of relaxing by the pool, fishing off the dock, exploring the natural beauty of the lake by boat, or sharing a bottle of wine with friends while enjoying the lakeside ambiance are some of our favorite pastimes at Chateau Lanier.
