Endless summer days and warm nights by the shore often summon up dreams and aspirations of waking up every morning in a beautiful home right by the water. For many, finances have restricted lakefront living to just a dream. But now, owning a waterfront property on South Carolina’s Lake Murray can become a reality for families and retirees looking for their own private lakeside oasis.
Lake Murray land has been in short supply for years, but on Saturday, October 5th at the Grand Opening Lot Sale, gorgeous lake property will be offered at Palmetto Pointe on Lake Murray; the first substantial waterfront community built on the lake in over a decade.
“Our regional tourism office is excited about the new Palmetto Pointe development, as it will provide movers and locals with a new lakefront community to be apart of,” said Jayne Baker, Public Relations Manager of Lake Murray Country.
Visitors to Palmetto Pointe on Lake Murray will likely first notice its serene qualities. Low boat traffic, spectacular views, and flocking birds give the impression of visiting a wildlife preserve. Known as the “Jewel of South Carolina”, Lake Murray is home to some of the most majestic wildlife and world-class fishing in South Carolina, including great blue heron, crappie, striped bass, and millions of migrating purple martins.
“Lake Murray is a paradise for outdoor lovers,” said Baker. “It’s also home to the purple martin phenomenon. In July and August, purple martins roost nightly on Lunch Island on Lake Murray. It is quite a sight to see these beautiful birds fly in at dusk.”
The lake is also the perfect place to enjoy a family-friendly vacation or a place to retire after years of hard work. But there are soon to be many more reasons to love life at Lake Murray, as the county has initiatives to boost economic development in the near future.
“The Lake Murray Country area is growing rapidly,” said Baker. “Movers from all over the nation are attracted to the area for the location, recreation and reasonable cost of living.”
Dreaming about owning land all the way up to the waterline? Palmetto Pointe makes it possible. All waterfront lots will own all the way up to the 360 waterlines, allowing owners to clear vegetation and open up beautiful views of the lake from their homes, a unique differentiator from most lakeside properties.
The partners at American Land Holdings, Inc., who planned the development on two miles of pristine shoreline, took their combined 100+ years of experience to find the perfect location—conveniently located between Charlotte, Lexington, Columbia, Augusta, Atlanta, Athens, and Greenville—with unique features and affordable prices.
“Lake Murray has always been the superior recreational lake in the South Carolina,” said Dean Sinatra, of American Land Holdings, who has also lived in the area for three decades. “With 650 miles of pristine shoreline expanding four counties and uncrowded water, it is one of the finest recreational lakes for boating, fishing, and entertainment.”
Catering to both full-time residents and those who may be looking for that summer vacation home, the 125 acre Palmetto Pointe waterfront community is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors, whether out enjoying the wildlife or you’re getting out on the water and making use of the private community day dock, boat ramp, and boat and trailer parking. Or your family plans a picnic or hike on the acres of common area green space to take in the water views.
Lake access lots at Palmetto Pointe will start from ONLY $9,900—and lakefront lots start from JUST $59,900. There’s no set time frame to build, and you can choose your own builder. Or, for a hassle-free build, the developer has partnered with the award-winning builder, Great Southern Homes.
“Great Southern Homes is very excited to have the opportunity to be included as a preferred builder at Palmetto Pointe with American Land Holdings. Due to the fact that there hasn’t been a new lakeside development of this caliber and magnitude in many years, Palmetto Pointe seems to be creating quite a buzz. Together, we will bring to the market a more affordable lakeside living experience on Lake Murray,” said Robert Penny, Regional Sales Manager of Great Southern Homes.
In partnership with the American Land Holdings, a local bank is now offering competitive financing programs to prospective buyers at the one-day-only event, making building a dream home on the water that much easier.
“American Land Holdings is highly committed to ongoing investments on Lake Murray,” said Sinatra. “We aspire to further developments on Lake Murray down the road, and to continue promoting and supporting economic development on the lake.”
Nestled on two miles of the lake’s shoreline, Palmetto Pointe is the largest individual tract of land remaining on the 50,000-acre Lake Murray, so lots are not expected to last long.
