About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This new home sits on a very private point lot with 700 feet of water frontage. It was designed for multiple families with kids. The view is absolutely spectacular with water on 3 sides and views from almost every room in the house. It is roughly 3,000 square feet and has a additional 2,100 square feet of balconies and decks. There are two great rooms, one for the adults and a second for the kids. The upstairs has 20' vaulted ceilings throughout. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and a Keurig Coffee machine. The huge, custom built square table seats 12 for family meals and two additional bar top chairs are at the kitchen counter top. For outdoor cooking, there is a large, high end, gas grill and a wood burning smoker.

There are two masters with one upstairs and the second down. The third and fourth bedrooms are downstairs. The game room includes a pool table, ping pong, foosball table, games and puzzles. We have a flat screen tv on the main level with Directv as well as two tv's on the bottom level, one in the master downstairs and one in the main room. We do have wireless DSL, if you need to connect your laptop.

Satellite TV (DirecTV) - Three TV's
Cell Phone coverage: Good
Land Line Phone
Nearest Marina/boat launch: About 5-10 minutes by road and less than 5 minutes by water
Water Level: Very deep.

The outside balconies and decks wrap three sides of the house. The lighted walkway leads down to the enormous three slip boat house and swim platform. The water slide is connected to city water for hours of fun in the lake. A deck box is available with life preservers for all sizes. There are plenty of chairs and chaise lounges by the house that can be brought down to the dock to use. Pontoon boat rentals are made through Duskin Point Marina (www.duskinpointmarina.com). You are also welcome to bring your own boat. There is also a trampoline with safety nets for the kids and adventurous adults.

The boat house includes an open slip for 1 boat and additional side docking for 3-4 more.

Smith Lake is rated as the third cleanest lake in the country. You must see it to believe it. There are 500 miles of shoreline with over 21,200 acres of water. There is fantastic swimming, fishing, boating and skiing. Much of the lake is in the Bankhead National Forest with miles of undisturbed wooded shores and spectacular views.

We are located very close to the Smith Lake dam and is also near Duskin Point Marina (great for refueling and a quick snack). It is 55 minutes from Birmingham, 2 hours from Nashville and 4 hours from Memphis.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My wife, Shannon and I have a passion for marriage and family minstry. Family Paradise was built with a vision of drawing families closer, creating life long memories; a place of rest and inspiration. In Spring, Summer and Fall we cater to family vacations and reunions. In winter, we focus on church retreats, including, mens, womens, marriage, youth, young adults & church leadership planing. We live in Bimingham, AL with our 4 children, Sammy, Megan, David & Emily.

Why the Owner Chose Crane Hill, AL, USA:
Smith Lake is one of the cleanest and most beautiful lakes in the country. It is conviently located 1 hour from birmingham and Huntsville, 2 hours from Nashville and 4 hours from Memphis. The rural setting provides the perfect setting to relax and enjoy some quality family time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Surrounded on 3 sides by water, Family Paradise offers an amazing lake experience. The gentle sloping lot minimizes the number of steps to the water. The house was desiged specifically for larger groups including beds in bedrooms for 14 and a huge kitchen table for 12. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pan and appliances to serve these large groups. The dock and swim platform are huge with fun for all ages. We also provide an open slip if you need to dock your owned or rented boat.
