Property description

You have found the perfect place at a great location. Nestled among towering trees on a quiet cul-de-sac, is this great lake house on the quieter northern part of the lake. Water sports and fishing are preferred in this location due to large boats not being able to navigate under Clark's bridge.

This 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath lake house, has all the modern conveniences and enjoyment you could ask for. Perfect for romantic getaways, family vacations, or simply an unforgettable, stress-free, relaxing retreat.

This house is tastefully decorated with newer furnishings, linens, towels and much more. A fully equipped stylish kitchen with skylight will keep any chef happy, with the dining room on one side and a screened porch that seats six on the other. The porch is also the ideal place for morning coffee with views of the lake.
Walk out on the massive decks to comfy lounge chairs, cafe style tables and a tiki bar ready for your latest margarita concoction!

A comfy living room with stone fireplace has a large flat screen TV and digital music channels for your dining room guests. The elegant dining area accommodates ten and has French doors which open to the main level deck.
The main level has a beautiful master bedroom with a King size bed, full bath with Jacuzzi, walk in closets and French doors leading to the main level deck.
The house features two massive decks, one on the main level and one on the lower level, which both span the width of the house and overlook a tranquil cove.
From the decks, the yard slopes downward towards the water with a path leading to a two level covered boat dock that doubles as a party/sun deck with absolutely gorgeous views of the cove leading to the lake.

The setting is perfect for all your water activities too. You can bring your boat or rent one nearby. The easy access boat ramp is only a half mile away. Spend your day boating, fishing or swimming, or just relax and enjoy the picturesque view from any number of rooms and areas.
Enjoy swimming off our dock with an easy access swim ladder. Or why not try your latest fishing lure and if your lucky you can cook your catch right on the barbeque grill!
You can enjoy a delicious meal in the formal dining room or a casual barbeque on the spacious deck.
Walk out on the spacious deck to the tiki bar and enjoy the view.

The game room was designed for fun in mind with a pool table, bar, large flat screen TV and a dinette that doubles as a card table. With a second kitchen on the lower level, your kids can eat and play downstairs while the adults have a quite evening conversing and dining on the main level. The lower level boasts the second deck, also overlooking the cove and allowing plenty of room and privacy on both levels.

Car: Recommended

One of the most desirable locations on the lake due to it's proximity to small quaint villages and towns nearby. The northern most part of the lake is preferred for rowing, kayaking, fishing and waterskiing due to the calmer waters in this part of the lake.

Musuems, entertainment, and many more amenities all within easy driving distances. Easy access to interstate 985 makes longer trips to Buford or Atlanta easier to navigate as well.

Other Activities: Boating, Water Sports, Kayaking, Canoeing

Golf: There are several Golf Courses in the area. The closest one is:

Chicopee Woods Golf Course

It is about a fifteen minute drive from the lake house.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Just a hard working construction company owner needing a relaxing place to get a way. . .love to water-ski, kayak and pedal boat around the cove too.

Why the Owner Chose Gainesville, GA, USA:
I was looking for a place to enjoy many outdoor activities for a longer part of the year. Florida is warm but lacks the mountains and a broader variety in geography. Connecticut (my home state) has prolonged winters while North Georgia's scenery reminded me of New England but with a very short winter. The quiet cove and street, close proximity to town and highways and all the friendly folks around is what attracted me the most. I hope you enjoy your time here as well and who knows. . .you may have the same desire as I did and become one of my friendly neighbors!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's a great cove for fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking and more. You will also love the covered dock with sundeck if you bring your own boat or rent one near by. It is very close to the Olympic Rowing venue which is part of the canoe and kayak club.
