There is no other body of water in Virginia quite like Smith Mountain Lake, 20,600 acres that epitomize aquatic recreation at its finest. Given its size and 580 miles of shoreline, outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds are drawn to the open water for boating, waterskiing, jet-skiing, and the many coves for kayaking, canoeing and other paddling pastimes. Smith Mountain Lake’s reputation is also unmatched as a prime fishing spot. Largemouth, smallmouth and the ever-rarer striped bass are known to call it home. It’s easy to say if you crave outdoor recreation, this region is designed for you. This fabulous location offers a mild year-round climate, making water activities possible virtually all year long on the fully-recreational lake. The area’s allure for active adults and families was recognized when a new, lakefront community was crafted by Frontier Development, a rare combination of lakefront and wooded lots that are all guaranteed buildable. Now, the final set of lots have been released and on May 4th, buyers will have the chance to secure an exceptional outdoor lifestyle.
“Our initial reaction when we looked at the property was it was one of the last great tracts available for development on the lake, and it was a very special piece of land,” said Dan Girouard, Vice President, Frontier Development.
This unique property features gentle slopes to the deep-water cove making it easy to carry kayaks and stand-up paddle boards to the community beach. Power boaters will discover a marina directly across the lake and plenty of room for waterskiing, tubing or wakeboarding. Several lakeside restaurants also offer docking options for romantic or family dinners away from home. Life doesn’t get much better than boating home at sunset from a great evening out. Smith Mountain Lake is also known as a favorite sailing lake. The community enjoys private access to a boat launch and tending pier.
When owners are wanting to get off the water, fun is never far away. Franklin County has gained national recognition for great walking and biking trails. Smith Mountain Lake State Park is traversed by paths from the 3.1-mile Striper Cove Trail to Opossum Trail. At .4 miles, it’s a perfect walk for young children and visiting grandparents. The park also features several moorings for boaters to tie up and explore the broadleaf and evergreen forests. Catch a concert at the Harvester Performance Center in Rocky Mount, an intimate 750-seat performance space that schedules artists like Dwight Yoakam and Asleep at the Wheel twelve months a year.
Those wanting a little more are only a short drive from Roanoke. This bustling city offers plenty of restaurants, boutiques and other entertainment options, as well as more hiking! Go a little deeper and spend hours or even a full day trekking about in the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest. The Blue Ridge Mountains are one of America’s greatest playgrounds.
Lot ownership is as seamless as sliding through the calm, lake waters. The final release of lots with the 110-acre lakefront property has underground utilities and paved roads in place—you can build when the time’s right for you. Three-bedroom, two-bath cabin kits are available WITH a lake lot for only $89,900.
Wooded lake access lots start at just $29,900 and waterfront sites begin at $99,900. Lake access like this is simply unavailable in Southwestern Virginia and after May 4th, will not appear again anytime soon. When you consider the utilities are connection ready, it’s easy to understand why previous sales have been so popular.
From fishing to patio picnics, paddling at sunrise or eating out at a lakeside restaurant, this lakefront property offers a sublime living environment. “It’s really one of the best locations east of the Appalachian Mountains,” Girouard said. “We’re proud to be giving couples [and] families a new development where they can own real estate on Virginia’s largest and premier, fully recreational lake.” This final opportunity to secure your own share of a Virginia lakefront dream happens May 4th.
