Privacy and breathing space on Lake Lanier: This 2-acre property has 468 feet of waterfront on a quiet cove at the western most extremity of Lake Lanier. There is a dock and a screened gazebo nearby; plus, a double, covered boat slip in the community boathouse just next door. The land is south facing and gently sloping to the water's edge. The 3,034 sq. ft. house is built into a hillside, providing two living levels both of which are served by concrete driveways. Completely, and I might add, expensively, renovated in 2008, the craftsmanship is superb and the spaces are elegant and enhanced by the rich patina of Brazilian hardwood floors, and warmth of natural pine, together with custom finishes. The main level consists of 2,185 square feet, the highlight of which is a bright and spacious sunroom flanked by wooden decks. An open concept living room and dining room, gourmet kitchen, three bedrooms and two baths complete this level. Opening onto a large covered patio at ground level is the 25' x 15' den, accompanied by a full bath. There are also the utility areas and a two-car garage. The property is handsomely landscaped and fully accessed by stone walkways. Lake Lanier is special not only for its scenic qualities but also for its convenient location a 6 minute drive to Tryon with a grocery store and restaurants, and minutes from Columbus or Landrum.
