Dock Envy is where it begins.
New 2-level dock with spectacular views, deep clear water and no cluster of neighboring docks is just the start.
Casual Elegance is where it continues in this 3 BR, 3 BA (each located on their own level) nestled in a forest of protected trees bursting with life. Located 10 miles from the outlet mall, 30 mins to the Mall of Georgia and 1 hr from Atlanta is a perfect retreat for 6.
A fabulous screened cedar gazebo is ideal for mid-day game playing during thunderstorms, a quiet place to enjoy your favorite beverage and well suited for intimate evening dining. Or relax one the the many decks and decide if you are at a lake house, a mountain cabin or romantic tree house.
The open living/dining/kitchen rooms with fireplace also allow for those same serene views. It is well appointed with subtle lighting and includes Xfinity WiFi, a 55” Samsung Smart TV with Apple TV and Xbox 360. The kitchen is fully equipped - including spices, rubs and condiments - and the dining table can be expanded for 8+. New refrigerator and granite counter tops added in 2016.
All bedrooms are nicely sized (especially the master) and include cable TV.
Please be aware that this is on a hill and that there are approx 15 steps at the end of the pathway to access the dock – that’s why we have deep water. There is room to moor your boat on either side of the 26' dock. There are boat rental options close by and numerous launching options.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: This home is co-owned by two friends from Atlanta -one a lawyer, the other a software specialist. My father first purchased a lake lot at Lake Wateree in South Carolina when I was 6 where as a family, we all pitched in built a cabin. Numerous family reunions were held, more fish frys and catfish stews than I can remember but mostly, a gathering and social place. Now, many years later, my brother and sister each have their own lake homes so it really is in our blood.
Why the Owner Chose Gainesville, GA, USA:
When looking for a lake home, I wanted the feeling of being away from the city and was wanting a mountain cabin feeling. When I first walked into this house, I immediately knew this was it.... the soaring floor to ceiling windows, hard wood flooring, multi-levels, fabulous fireplace, deep water, low maintenance... it just called out to me. I have spent these years making this a destination that my friends and family would want to do again and again.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Most important is that it is only a one hour drive to Atlanta and all it has to offer. Sandwiched between Gainesville and Cumming, it is 10 mins from the outlet mall and 30 mins from the Mall of Georgia and close to all the north Georgia fall festivals.
