This is one of my former projects that is so special to me. It's my second home. I wanted to buy a lake house on Lake Lanier as a respite from normal life and to be whisked away to a very special place. I knew it was "the one" as soon as I set foot in the house.
One of the reasons I love this house is because you feel like you are so far away from Atlanta--but you're really not. It's all intersate to within 5 minutes of the house. North Lake, to me at least, is so much better than South Lake. It's not as crowded, you can scoot around Gainesville very easily without a lot of traffic, and you have the view and feel of the amazing North Georgia Mountains. It really feels like you have been transported to a real retreat--not a neighborhood with houses close together that happen to be on a lake.
The minute I turn my car into the driveway, I take in a breath and sigh really big--it's so private, so peaceful, and so charming. There is a farmers market nearby, and a neat grocery store within 10 minutes. It is convenient to everything. Don't let the Lula address fool you. This is unlike other house on South Lake.
Totally renovated to evoke more feelings of the mountains, but a little modern and chic too, it's ready to be that place for someone else. Take a look!
