This gated community, Riverside at Lake Nottely, got its name from the river sized, fast-flowing, well-known creek called Young Cane Creek. You have the best of both waterfront worlds here. This creekfront lot is truly a unique piece of property with approximately 248 feet of creek frontage. Which during the Summer months, when the water levels are higher, you can drop a kayak or boat in from your back yard. The creek allows you direct and almost immediate access to Lake Nottely. During the winter months, as lake water levels are lower, sit back, relax, and listen to the serene sounds of the creek rushing against riverbed rocks as it makes its way past your new home. Across this noisy creek is a thick forest that climbs the hillside preventing anyone from building a house in your line of sight. As if having frontage on a creek and access to a huge lake wasn’t amazing enough, you have a nice mountain view from this lot as well, all year round.
This neighborhood was built on old farmlands that have been converted into a rustic mountain and farmhouse community. The terrain is made up of flatlands and rolling hills. All roads are paved and lots have underground utilities, city water, and high-speed internet access. This 1.25-acre lot is almost completely flat. Which will save you thousands of dollars on grading your new home site. There’s plenty of space for a garden or mini-farm. Yet, moderate restrictions are in place to protect your investment. So no farm animals are allowed. There are approximately 20 really nice homes already built, and several more being built now.
Invite your guests to use both canoe/kayak launches. You can get in at one launch and get out at the other. Both launches are accessible via automobile. Or enjoy the upscale community mountain lodge. Which can be used by property owners at any time and even reserved for special occasions. Relax and sit by one of the many stone fireplaces…inside or out. Large decks and the kitchen are great for entertaining guests. Inside, play pool, shuffleboard, basketball, pickleball, and a variety of other games.
If you decide to venture outside of the community, there’s plenty of things to do close by. For the outdoor enthusiasts, check out Brasstown Bald, Vogel State Park, Helton Creek Falls, Meeks Park, Desota Falls, the Appalachian Trail, Benton MacKaye Trail, or the Lasso the Moon Alpaca Farm. For indoor enthusiasts, there’s the Odom Springs Winery, Byron Hebert Reece Farm & Heritage Center, or pick up some local moonshine at Pappy’s Trading Post. Several popular mountain town communities are within a 10 to 30-minute drive including Blairsville, Blue Ridge, Ellijay, Helen, Young Harris, Hiawassee and Murphy, NC. Each town has plenty of choices for shopping and dining.
