While this property is a relatively new opportunity for buyers, Smith Mountain Lake is not a new discovery. This area is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top bass lakes by Bassmaster Magazine given the multitude of trophy-sized largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass that reside here. The 20,600-acre lake with 580 miles of shoreline has also enjoyed a star turn moment or two as the setting for the “What About Bob?” and “Lake Effects” films. Yet, this region in Southwestern Virginia still maintains an “off the beaten path” atmosphere, a home where we can be alone with our thoughts, share a long, unbothered hand-in-hand walk along the beach or watch the day pass calmly from an undisturbed patio while the steaks grill.
It gets even better, especially for folks with well-earned time on their hands. The Water’s Edge Country Club, a prestigious golfing community, is located directly across from this lakefront community, one of several 18-hole layouts within close proximity. You can see the signature Hole 7 island green from many of the home sites, providing inspiration to work on your short irons at the golf club’s superb practice area. If you’re more interested in boating than birdies, you’ll find a nearby marina for all your aquatic needs in addition to a bevy of lakeside restaurants where you can dine before making the sunset voyage home on the lake. You might even pass a sailboat or two along the way.
One thought that won’t cause worry while you putt or paddle are the logistics of building your home. Nestled on 7,000 feet of lakefront shoreline lies a variety of well planned lakefront and lake access home sites throughout the gorgeous 110+ acre property. The entire community’s landscape, including this final release of lots, have underground utilities and paved roads in place—you can build when the time’s right for you.
Among the best elements of retiring or a late stage career is the ability to be one’s own boss. With these gorgeous lake properties, you can enjoy the ambience of lake, forest, and mountain from a home design and builder of your choice. Plus, owning a large, independent lot on the shores of Smith Mountain Lake promises natural amenities like peaceful nights and quiet days. Only 15 minutes from the local hospital, less than an hour from Roanoke and just a few hours from bustling Richmond and Raleigh, life turns to a whisper once you migrate into the Smith Mountain Lake region.
Smith Mountain Lake nods to the relaxed life, unless you prefer to hard cast your fly or spin rod. Even better, pristine lake lots start at just $29,900. You can select your lot and choose your own builder to suit your budget, lot and lifestyle and there’s no time limit on building—however these prices are only offered on May 4th during the final lot sale.
Live a life of serenity and make this lakefront property your home.
