$2,575,000 4bd / 3fb / 0hb

Classic Lake Burton legacy property -- first time on the market since 1957! An amazing 600+ ft of water frontage on a peninsula/point lot with truly panoramic views that is centrally located on the lake. Your family will love coming to your Lake Burton camp/compound that abounds with breathtaking eastern and southern views of the main body and Charlie Mountain along with northern views at the straightaway entrance prior to the Moccasin Creek/Wildcat divide. The property even has a long, naturally sandy beach for all to enjoy. Go back in time to the older, simpler times on Burton in the vintage, tin-roofed, red cabin with 3 bunk rooms and two baths with its old porches right at the waterfront. And unbelievably, there is a 4400 sq ft big house that was built in 1990 with two stories, four bedrooms & three baths, rec room, sunroom, wood & gas stoves on both levels, and a plethora of porches & decks wrapping around the home. There is ample basement storage that could be finished and a covered two car carport with plenty of parking for family & friends on the property. The swim dock, boathouse, & adjoining wharf were thoughtfully placed on the deep water Southern side of the property affording long, sunny days and moonlit & starry nights on the sparkling, emerald green waters of beautiful Lake Burton. The two stall covered boathouse was built only four years ago and is well equipped with boat hoists and has a beautiful covered sitting area with a cozy, stone fireplace. The docks are also equipped with two wave runner hoists. Considered to be in Georgia Power Company portfolio's top 5%, your family will have their own slice of Lake Burton heaven to roam, play, and explore!
