Lake Blackshear house description

Excellent location on Lake Blackshear, main body of the lake with perfect sunsets and recreational opportunities for the whole family. A shaded porch, large sun deck, wood burning fireplace, high dive and boat ramp.

This 6 year old home was built with the family in mind. With water depths starting at just 2 feet and gradually falling to more than 12 feet at the end of the dock. The 10 foot high dive will entertain kids of all ages while you watch from the sun deck enjoying music from our 400 plus CDs or your own iPod.

With our private boat ramp you can launch your boat or PWC from the property, leave it safely in the water all week and conveniently park your trailer out of the way and out your view. Lake Blackshear offers more than 20 miles of cruising as well as excellent spots for the best ski and wakeboard runs.

After a full day of sun and fun, dine comfortably on the porch while the sun dips behind the pines to deliver the best sunsets in Georgia. Of course, you might opt for relaxing in the swinging bed with your favorite beverage as the setting suns yields to the star -studded night.

The interior of the home offers panoramic views from all of the living areas plus the master suite. In addition to the lake view the master features a 4 post queen bed and a private bath with a garden tub.

Each of the other 3 bedrooms are furnished with full size antique iron frame beds. The 2nd full bath is easily accessed from bedrooms or living area. There is a third full bath located on the lower level adding capacity plus convenience for easy access from the dock or sun deck.

The living room offers comfortable furnishings, a wood burning fire place and big screen TV including a DVD player and collection of great movies.

The washer and dryer are conveniently located on the main floor. All appliances are modern and dependable with a full kitchen, dishwasher and microwave.

This home was built with the family in mind, specifically our family and we are happy to share it with yours. Ben & Jennie

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Jennie and I live in Fernandina Beach, Florida but I grew up in this area and we come back often to enjoy the lake with our family and friends.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Blackshear:
              This property has been in our family since 1973. We built a new home in 2007. We live in Amelia Island, Florida and enjoy this property with our 3 children. Having grown up on this lake, I'm sure that Lake blackshear is no longer the best kept secret in Georgia.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love to come here to 'unplug' . The quiet rural lifestyle and peacefullness on the lake is the cure for our busy schedule.
