Located on the Dogwood Branch of Pea Hill Creek, this extremely spacious 5 bedroom home sits on a beautiful flat point lot with 400ft of bulkheaded waterfront. This area has some of the clearest water in all of Lake Gaston with a firm sandy bottom. The gently sloping beach lets youngsters play safely at the edge while the 7ft+ depth at the end of the dock lets the more adventurous jump off the roof of the boat house. Bring your own boat (the neighborhood has a private boat ramp within walking distance) and park it on the boat lift. Because it is sheltered, the cove is one of the most popular areas on the lake for wakeboarding, waterskiing and wake surfing. Even if you don't do this yourself, its fun to watch the pros doing flips and spins. There is a single jet ski lift available along with anchored buoys to tie up 3 more jet skis. Two kayaks and a small sunfish sailboat are also available for your use, along with a number of towable tubes and life jackets for water-based fun.
The airy house has 5 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half bathrooms, and comfortably sleeps 16. The huge main living room has a two story cathedral ceiling and a wall of windows providing a spectacular view of the lake. The large kitchen has a central island perfect for breakfast and entertaining. There is a dining room that can seat 10-12 people, but you will eat most of your meals outside on the deck soaking in the view. Covered areas on each side of the deck let you enjoy the outdoors even when the weather is not co-operating. The master bedroom is on this main floor with queen sized bed and attached full bathroom.
Three bedrooms are upstairs, all with high cathedral ceilings. One has a queen size bed and one has a queen and two bunk beds. The third has a king sized bed and a day bed with pull out trundle bed. The bedrooms share a full bathroom.
The fifth bedroom is in the fully finished basement and has a queen bed and two bunk beds with attached full bathroom. Most of the spacious basement is equipped as a fantastic game room with pool table, darts and table tennis and a sitting area with large TV.
Other amenities: High speed Internet with WiFi (even extending down to the dock). Time-Warner cable and AppleTVs with Amazon Primer, Netflix and HBO Now. Multiple sound systems on the deck and dock use Apple Airplay so you can stream music from your phone.
Are you a fisherman? This area of Pea Hill Creek has some of the best fishing on Lake Gaston. During the spring you can watch the bass bedding all around the waterfront due to the clear water and sandy bottom. A green LED light strip under the dock attracts shad and bluegills and so bass and catfish hang out there too. Watch the bass cruising under the dock and see if you can catch them!
Planning a Wedding? The relatively flat lot, fantastic water view and privacy of the property make this a great location for small to medium sized weddings. Now, due to the extra wear and tear on the property, we do charge a premium and require a minimum 7 night stay. You get the house for a week for $4,500 in the summer (from Memorial Day to Labor Day), or $3,500 the rest of the year. Plan ahead and rent the house next door to have an entire point for your own private use.
