Have you ever wondered if a tranquil lake community like Smith Mountain Lake living would provide you with the permanent escape you often wish for?
After a while, the traffic and crowds of larger cities and towns can bring a longing for a more peaceful experience that outlasts your yearly vacation. The kind of experience locals at Smith Mountain Lake get to have all the time.
Realtor.com highlights several benefits of a country setting like the one found at SML. Check out these perks of trading city life for the open spaces and fresh air of a calmer, scenic rural location like this one.
A Natural Need
There’s a “back to nature” trend sweeping the country in multiple industries - farm-to-table food, home grown ingredients and DIY projects. Smith Mountain Lake living puts residents in the middle of a natural, life-enhancing setting. Access to organic, naturally-grown farm fresh food is as easy as a trip to one of the many farmer’s markets or locally grown sections of the grocery store. Homegrown dairy products, wine, beer and meats are also right down the road for most locals.
Slow Down and De-Stress
Too much stress is simply not good for you, especially when it lasts over a long period. Busy, high-traffic areas may be exciting at times but prolonged exposure can raise your stress levels and take a toll on overall physical and mental health. The slower pace of living at SML means less stress on your body and mind. The beauty and peacefulness of the surroundings are constant natural stress-busters.
Budget Breathing Room
In a country setting like ours, the budget goes further thanks to low taxes and an overall lower cost of living. The properties at Smith Mountain Lake come in a wide range of affordability and what may have bought you limited square footage in a larger town could likely get you a good deal more here. Smith Mountain Lake living means breathing room for the budget, another built-in benefit of living here.
