About the Property

Our beautiful sanctuary will change your perspective if not your life.

4 bedroom, 3 bath home right on deep water on Lake Hartwell. Amenities galore, the best of which are peace and quiet. An hour and 45 minutes from Midtown Atlanta, with great golf nearby, fishing down the path on our private dock, birdwatching everywhere, huge dvd library in private screening room...perfect for a family, a small corporate meeting...or just you and your thoughts.

The town of Toccoa and the nearby towns of Clayton, Highlands, Dillsboro and Sylva are great short drives for sight seeing, restaurants, white water rafting and shopping.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I am the founder of Jake's Ice Creams in Atlanta and I fell in love with this property and all it represents. As a writer I love being able to enjoy total peace and solitude. As an avid fisherman I am astounded by how well stocked the lake is. As a kayaker I am in heaven with every stroke as the oars hit the beautiful water. I am happy to think of you having the same kinds of joy from Heaven on Hartwell as I have had.

Why the Owner Chose Toccoa, GA, USA:
I was looking for total privacy...not a party dock. I wanted beautiful views and a house that accommodate my friends and family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The screening room has a transformational affect on me...and makes me enjoy the films I watch even more. I love the hardwood floors and the vaulted ceiling in the living room. I mostly just love how gosh darned beautiful everything is.
