Cherokee County communityLake Arrowhead announces that it has sold the last remaining lot on the Peninsula, a collection of 14 waterfront homesites.

Homebuyers from several parts of Georgia purchased these lake lots priced from the $200,000s. Most of them plan on living at the Lake Arrowhead on a permanent basis, and three buyers have existing property at the community. In spite of lower consumer confidence and a struggling housing market, these homesites continue to generate interest among buyers.

“We are very excited to welcome these new homeowners to our community,” Tommy Elsberry said. “The Peninsula offers lakeside living at its finest with level, dockable lots that provide amazing views of the lake. There is a unique opportunity for lake living in Cherokee County, convenient to Atlanta, that buyers are obviously interested in regardless of the economy.”

One couple has already started construction on their new home. Rick and Penny Greenfield are building a master on the main plan with a daylight basement. The new home will have more than 4,500 square feet of space and serve as the couple’s primary residence. While both of them currently work, they plan to eventually retire at this community.

“We’ve always wanted a home on the lake and sort of stumbled onto Lake Arrowhead. Green trees and water were very important to us, and being able to sit on the dock and look out across the lake is wonderful,” said Penny. “We love the people and especially enjoy eating at the Highlands Grill. The community is serene and yet still convenient to reality.”

At Lake Arrowhead, buyers have the option of using a preferred builder or bringing in an independent builder to construct the home. Several owners have already put docks on their homesites to take full advantage of the amenities on weekends. The Lake Arrowhead community is built around a 540-acre lake, which allows residents to enjoy fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing and more. Homeowners also have access to a 40-acre swim and activity center; multiple sport courts; parks; an 18-hole championship golf course; and more than eight miles of natural walking trails.

The lake lots on the Peninsula have all been sold, but Lake Arrowhead recently released 11 beautiful waterfront and waterview homesites at Longview. This section offers some of the most incredible views in the entire community. Buyers can schedule a tour of the community and see why it has generated such high interest.
