Looking for the perfect family getaway? Then this beautiful new home on the lake is the one for you! Vaulted ceilings with lots of windows provide great lake views from the house or the two covered decks. The open kitchen plan has a table that seats eight comfortably and a table on the deck just outside seats four more. The pine floors and ceiling in the living area, along with the stacked stone fire place give the house a mountain feel but its just a short, easy walk to the dock.
The master bedroom on the main level of the house provides lake views, a king-sized bed, TV with satellite, and private bath. A bonus room (equipped with a single bed with trundle) and half bath are also located on the main level. The large open living area features lake views, a queen sleeper sofa and 37 inch TV with satellite and DVD/VCR player.
The upstairs features two bedrooms, a full bath and a large loft area with plenty of room for an air mattress. One bedroom has bunk beds with a double on the bottom and single on top and the other bedroom has a queen bed. Unfinished basement has a ping pong table for those rare rainy days.
The double decker dock sits at the beginning of a quiet cove that allows for children to play safely in the water. The dock also features a single boat slip, swim deck and covered area on the top deck equipped with ceiling fans to keep you cool even on the warmest days. Owner's boat is on a lift in the slip but there is plenty of room for two more boats on either side of the dock.
It's just a short drive to Harbor Light Marina (where you can rent boats and jet skis) or to Tugaloo State Park which has a beach area, picnic area, miniature golf, and other amenities. Toccoa Falls and shopping in Toccoa is only a 15 minute drive from the house.
My wife and I got married in 1997 and have lived in Athens GA. for most of our lives. Our children are Peyton (9) and Tristan (4). I am a real estate invester and my wife works for the University doing training. We love to travel, snow ski, scuba dive and just hang out at the lake.
We chose to buy our house at the lake because we loved the area and it is only a 1 hour drive from our house in Athens. Lake Hartwell is a beautiful lake with a feel of being in the foothills. Fishing is great and it is such a large lake so there is plenty to explore.
Our house is convient to I-85 and easy to get to from Atlanta. There are parks nearby and plenty to explore. Our dock has a party deck and can accomidate a large family compfortably. It is in a wooded area that allows for plenty of privacy.
