                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: We purchase our Lake Gaston home is 2000 with another family. Our goal was to have a safe, fun place for our children as they entered the teenage years. We wanted to be surrounded by family and good friends and have guests join us at the Lake. We eventually bought our partners out and own the house ourselves and that is why we share it with you! We love Lake Gaston and as our children grow and get involved with sports and jobs we are not able to spend our full summers at the Lake ... so Lucky YOU... now we rent to wonderful families like you. We hope you treat our home like your own and build wonderful lasting memories with family and friends. Be SAFE and have fun.

                      Why the Owner Chose Henrico:
                      Location, Location, Location ... open living space, great water (shallow at bulk head and 14 feet at the end of the dock!) and such easy access to the whole lake.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      2 families can easily work and live in our home ... the driveway will accommodate boat trailers and several cars ... our view is amazing ... our cove is calm ...
