Exquisitely positioned within the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Lake Burton sets the stage for lake life at the highest level. Spanning 62 miles of pristine shoreline, the 2,775-acre lake is located just two hours from Atlanta and just minutes to the quaint community of Clayton. This emerging town has become increasingly popular and features a variety of upscale boutiques and unique dining experiences.
Those who enjoy the great outdoors are naturally drawn to the lake where crystal clear waters beckon the pursuit of numerous activities including water skiing, wakeboarding, boating, fishing and kayaking. Surrounded by lush forests and breathtaking mountain vistas, it is of little wonder that this tranquil place has caught the attention of busy families who want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. According to Julie Barnett, real estate professional with Harry Norman REALTORS®, approximately 90 percent of the homes on Lake Burton are vacation homes.
“It’s a very exclusive area that has something to offer everyone,” says Julie. Home styles run the gamut from rustic to traditional to modern, with prices ranging from $350,000 to more than $5 million.
“What makes Lake Burton especially unique is that water levels stay full during the hot summer months, so residents can take full advantage of all the activities available,” states Leigh Barnett with Harry Norman REALTORS®. In addition to two lakeside marinas, there is a private golf club that offers spectacular lake and mountain views.
Julie and Leigh understand the special pull of Lake Burton, having lived here for nearly 16 years. They were recognized 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’ special wants.
Both Julie and Leigh pride themselves on the need for confidentiality. 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!”
