Property description

‘Miles Away’ is where family memories are made and golf can be played. Professionally decorated and fully furnished, this immaculate, private lake front home of over 4200 square feet, has a spectacular view across the main lake. No hills and no coves!

Located on three acres and nestled among large trees, the flat grassy landscaped lot lends itself to a game of football, softball, croquet, horse shoes, or chipping golf balls. 300 feet of gorgeous, pristine main lake shoreline with a private beach area and max vinyl dock with boat slip and party deck, perfect for swimming, fishing, sun bathing or watching one of our exquisite sunsets.

This million dollar, executive-style home offers a large, extensively equipped, gourmet kitchen, complete with granite countertops, Jenn Air appliances, and island, allowing you to cook while enjoying the company of family and friends. A warm, gracious family room is a great lake front sitting area and invites you to enjoy the magnificent, wood-burning, floor to ceiling stone fireplace while reading, watching a movie, or playing a game--a variety of books, CDs, movies, puzzles and games are included.

The first floor master bedroom, with lake views, has a private door to the large deck, queen-size canopy bed, walk-in California closet and luxurious marble bath with two sinks and separate walk-in shower. Upstairs are three roomy bedrooms (one with private bath) with queen-size beds. Another full bath is located in the upstairs hall. The main floor laundry room is complete with a large capacity washer and dryer.

The large bonus room upstairs is a wonderful play area-- complete with toys and a pool table-- or makes a great retreat for the kids to throw down sleeping bags or air mattresses and 'camp out.' With the office nook, desk, hi-speed internet and router, keep up with business while you are on vacation is a breeze. A queen-size sleeper sofa is located in the downstairs den--a separate TV/game area or can act as a fifth bedroom, complete with a Sony Playstation 2 for the kids.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION--'Miles Away' provides both serene privacy and ultimate convenience; nearby are restaurants, groceries, spa and gym facilities, golf courses, marinas, gas stations and a variety of shopping.

During spring and summer, bring your boat or Jet Ski--our boat may be available under special arrangements; or rent one at a nearby marina. Taking a shoreline cruise is a wonderful way to see this outdoor paradise and the ever changing scenery of Lake Oconee and keep you intrigued for hours.

During the fall, which offers a colorful display with the leaves changing, enjoy the patio and firepit--great for conversing and making s'mores with family. 'Escape' for the weekend during the winter months, which are always warm and inviting for holiday gatherings, quality family time and game playing, or a romantic getaway.

Owner has National membership at Reynolds Plantation, which allows access to 99 holes of championship golf on 5 different courses!

Enjoy the vacation of your dreams with quiet, comfortable lake living at its best. This is the perfect place to spend time with family, and this is your invitation to come and enjoy beautiful Lake Oconee.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Our family is originally from the South - Rebecca was born in Georgia. We have had the opportunity to move across our great country and live in Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, New York, Maryland, California, Illinois and finally, back to Georgia! It has been a positive experience meeting new people, visiting historic landmarks and museums and taking advantage of what each area has to offer. When Rebecca was growing up, her grandparents owned a drive-in theatre and she has warm, fuzzy and wonderful memories of her time watching movies on the big-screen, playing on the playground and helping make pizzas! Our decision to purchase a second home on the lake was to provide our family with fantastic, warm and endearing memories of our own. We love to ski, swim, fish, boat, cook, eat outdoors, play games, ride bikes, etc... and we can do it all at 'Miles Away!'

Why the Owner Chose Greensboro:
After one trip to Lake Oconee, 374 miles of shoreline and 19,000 acres of spectacular recreational living, we realized what a multi-faceted gem it is! Rich in history and tucked away, this scenic resort area is one of the most beautiful regions of Georgia and represents the charm and grace of the old South with hundreds of acres of unspoiled nature at our doorstep. It is the state's premier golf and lake resort area boasting eight world class golf courses and is easily accessible to Atlanta, Athens and Augusta. It has some of the South's best boating, fishing and equestrian facilities. We appreciate the area's warm summers and mild winters. Miles Away is centrally located: the grocery, golf courses, Ritz Carlton, locally owned shops and boutiques, 4-star restaurants and southern barbeque are all within minutes. For more adventures with the family, the area has horseback riding, guided boat tours and nature trails. There are also special events such as music festivals, craft shows, fishing tournaments and holiday celebrations. What better way to make wonderful memories with your children and grandchildren than swimming, fishing, tubing, golfing, skiing, boating, cooking s'mores, playing games, building sand castles or just watching them do it all and you take the pictures!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our family fell in love with the spectacular location, property, and main lake view - the large, flat lot with over 300 feet of main lake shore line looks across at breathtaking natural beauty and phenomenal sunsets. The large patio with grill and fire pit and small, but private, beach area are two very useful amenities. Miles Away is wonderfully stocked, which makes packing much easier. The golf cart is nice for transporting everything back and forth from the house to the lake. There is a boat ramp one mile down the street and the closest marina is less than 5 minutes by boat. Quiet, comfortable and ultimate convenience - we love that Miles Away really is like a home away from home, where we can relax, renew and rediscover!
