Property description

The most ideal location on Lake Gaston! You are on a quiet cul-de-sac in a very quiet neighborhood, and yet you are 1 minute(yes, literally 1 minute)from the Lake Gaston shopping center (groceries, hardware, drug store, pizza and ice cream, etc) You can scoot off for milk, and be back before your coffee has cooled!

This home is located on your own private cove tucked right in the center of the main lake. Gorgeous big water view and boating. Watch your children play on their own exclusive,private sandy beach with a gently sloping bottom or fish off the deep water double dock. With 2 covered boat lifts(protect your boat from a pesky storm), a 30 ft tie up, and a jet ski/sailboat parking ramp, there is more than enough room for multiple boats and toys. A huge sun deck above the dock provides amazing, panoramic, big water views, as well as abundant shade below.

A gentle walk up the lawn brings you up to the house, 3000 square feet with A/C, four bedrooms, three full baths, two family rooms with flat screen televisions and two wood-burning fireplaces. The kitchen is fully stocked and has an eat-in nook with a fabulous view of the lake, or eat out on the large picnic table(seats 12!) next to the BBQ grill on the two-level deck. Enjoy the hammock under the trees and the teak dining table on the lower level covered porch. In the evening build a fire in the huge outdoor fire pit, and roast some marshmallows.

Beautifully decorated, this retreat on the lake is a true retreat. Instead of an impersonal rental property, it feels like home, because it IS our home! The glassed/screened porch is a perfect place to listen to the rain or read a book or check your email. There is a library of books and videos/DVDs to enjoy and fleece blankets to cuddle into as the sun sets and the day ends.

The house is on a quiet cul-de-sac and the road is paved all the way to the house. We have a basketball hoop (bring your own basketball) and 2 kayaks for your use. Your own private boat ramp is just 3 doors down. Launch your boat and walk back to the house---- no more doing the boat launch shuffle!
The greatest compliment, and one we we keep hearing from our guests is that it feels like their home- If feels like their own private lakehouse. We hope you feel the same way.

There is a grocery store, hardware store, pharmacy, and 4 restaurants within 1 minute of the house. Eaton's Ferry Marina is 3 minutes away. A gorgeous gardening center and fitness center are a 6 minute drive.

Rosemont Vineyard is 15 minutes away.

Healing Kneads Therapeutic Massage and Day Spa is 10 minutes down the road.

If you feel like a day away from your lakeside retreat, the historic James River plantations are only 95 miles north, a definite must-see. Colonial Williamsburg, a favorite with my children, is 120 miles of scenic driving.

Richmond, the only American city with Class 3 rapids running through it as well as being the Capitol of the Confederacy, is an easy drive of 90 highway miles.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: My father bought this house as a place for my wife and I and our three kids to gather, to spend holidays and lazy summer weekends. We've loved every minute spent here. Our daughter was married on the sun deck! We call it the wedding deck now.

Why the Owner Chose Other Lake Gaston Properties:
The location was not to be believed. All the quiet of country living, the beauty of a big water view, and the convenience of the grocery store and a Subway sandwich shop within a 1 minute drive. There is also an ABC store in the same shopping center as the grocery store, as well as a pizza parlor (they deliver!), drug store, a fully loaded gas station, and an ice cream parlor. Run out of milk? Grocery store is literally 1 minute away!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's close to everything, yet is so private and secluded that you'd never know it. The house is on the main lake but tucked into a quiet cove. All the views of the main lake and none of the boat traffic, nor car traffic. . Unlike most homes on the lake, our house is tucked away---we can barely see our neighbors and it feels like we have the lake to ourselves. We have our own private sandy beach with a gentle slope -very rare on the lake. covered boat lifts, a huge sun deck(big enough for a wedding!) and plenty of shade below.
