Lake Oconee lake home for sale - 1871 Northwoods Drive

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Lake Country 284620

Privacy is the one thing you usually have to sacrifice when buying a home on Lake Oconee.  The value of the lakeshore is so high, that most lots are just 100-150ft wide.  You can imagine how crowded the water can get on a nice holiday weekend, with boats and personal watercraft launching from the shoreline by the dozens.  The waves flair up, and the noise levels can be anything but bucolic!

If your idea of lake living looks more like "On Golden Pond" , then you should consider the quiet north shore of Lake Oconee - like the Northwoods Subdivision, and this newer 3 bedroom 2 bath ranch home with full daylight basement ready to finish. Priced to sell - just $420,000 - well below the average for a private lakefront home for sale on Lake Oconee

The floor plan is open, with a spacious dining area, large lakeside living room with massive stone hearth, plus a well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar.  The gleaming hardwood floors have just been refinished, and the main level has a fresh coat of paint throughout. The floorplan is suitable for a primary or second home residence, with its ranch plan with attached 2car garage, plus a walk-out basement ready to finish. The home was built in 2004, and features hardy-plank siding, a paved driveway, and a spacious lakeside covered porch.

The home sits high atop a ridge overlooking one of the most private parts of the lake – the quiet north Oconee branch.  With 3600 acres of National Forest in the immediate area, including miles of shoreline, you’ll enjoy a uniquely uncrowded lake experience.  The home comes equipped with a max dock and covered boatlift.  Water depth at the dock is about 6ft, suitable for all types of boats. The steps to and from the lakeshore will keep you in great shape.

Northwoods is centrally located to the Lake Country’s main business districts.  Downtown Greensboro is about 10 minutes away – you’ll find local meats, cheeses, and produce at Ripe Things Market, traditional southern cooking at Yesterday Café, and incredible performances at Festival Hall.  Another 10 minutes and you’ll reach the Lake Oconee business district, with a host of restaurants and shops, and top-class medical facilities – including the new hospital which opens in 2014. Historic Madison and Athens are both within easy reach.

Lake Oconee is Georgia’s second largest lake, with more than 19,000 acres of boating and fishing fun. Managed by Georgia Power, Lake Oconee offers stable lake levels year round. Lake Oconee is a Top Ten Golf Resort Destination, with 189 holes of private and public access golf. Georgia’s Lake Country offers recreation for the whole family, including golf, boating, fishing, and hunting, as well as equestrian sports.
