Lake Life at its Finest

By Linde Hyder

The sun rises over pristine water, marked only by the ripple of a jumping bass or gentle wake of a fishing boat. Morning coffee is enjoyed on the deck watching paddle boarders and kayakers. Later, after a busy afternoon spent tubing or skiing, it’s time to relax with a sunset cruise to the club for dinner. This is the essence of lake life. Add Lake Burton’s 62 miles of scenic shoreline punctuated with picturesque homes and you have lakefront living at its finest.

Situated within the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, surrounded by lush forests and breathtaking mountain vistas, Lake Burton is two hours from Atlanta and just minutes to Clayton where upscale boutiques and unique dining experiences abound. The 2,775-acre lake features two lakeside marinas and a private golf club offering spectacular lake and mountain views.

“It’s my favorite place on earth,” states Julie Barnett, with Harry Norman REALTORS®. “You can be as active or inactive as you care to be here.”

Lake Burton has captured the attention of busy families—and celebrities—who want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. The exclusive area has something to offer everyone, with a variety of home styles ranging from $350,000 to more than $5 million.

“What makes Lake Burton unique is that water levels stay full during the summer months allowing residents to take full advantage of all the activities available,” states Julie’s daughter Leigh Barnett with Harry Norman REALTORS®.

Julie and Leigh complement each other successfully as evidenced by their recognition among the Top 3 real estate agents in Lake Burton last year. Julie has been involved in 90 percent of home sales priced at $3 million and above. Leigh’s expertise in visualizing a home’s true potential enables her to find the ideal property to suit her clients’ needs. Often working with a high net-worth clientele, they have the highest respect for client privacy and maintain discretion throughout each transaction.

Julie and Leigh invite you to experience Lake Burton for yourself. “We show property by pontoon boat,” says Julie. “When it’s 78 degrees on the water, it’s an easy sell!”
