Dreaming About a Lakefront Family Legacy Home? Here’s Your Site

Whether you’re looking to build your dream family legacy home or you’re ready to escape to lake living right now, the popular Long Cove luxury community on Cedar Creek Lake has several options that’ll fit you.

If you’ve ever tried to purchase land to build your dream home from the ground up, you’ll know it’s not as easy as it sounds. Finding available land that’s truly buildable is a challenge. Luckily, Long Cove has a few last lakefront sites in the established Dodd’s Point neighborhood that can be combined to create an acre-plus of waterfront property ready for construction. The lakefront home site, available for $1.75 million, measures 0.775 acres with 227 feet of waterfront land. The adjacent lot is available and can be combined to add a half-acre.

“This is really a rare opportunity to build a legacy lakefront home on a home site that can be combined with another,” says Shandi Hudson, Long Cove sales executive.

Having two adjoining sites serves up a lot of possibilities, creating one huge acre-plus site for someone looking to build their dream home, or giving an extended family the opportunity to build two homes adjacent to each other that share waterfront access.

But if you’re not up for the time and detail it takes to build from scratch, you can purchase one of several existing homes in Long Cove. Square footage and prices range for the different homes available, but one great option is what Long Cove calls Porch Homes. With floor plans starting at $745,000, you can get into one of these three- or four-bedroom waterfront porch homes in time to enjoy spring, summer, and fall at the lake. Flanked by Dodd’s Landing neighborhood and a full-sized sports field, the Porch Homes overlook a stocked bass pond, so you can literally fish off your back porch.

The three-bedroom, two-and-half-bath Sandpiper model has 1,940 square feet with 276 additional feet of covered porches and balcony. The four-bedroom, three-and-half-bath Mallard model has 2,181 square feet with 403 additional square feet of covered porch.

Step inside these two-story homes to find light hardwood floors throughout the great room that encompasses the living area, dining area, and kitchen. You’ll find crisp white cabinets, subway tile backsplash, quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen.

Both models feature upstairs master bedrooms with luxury double vanity bathrooms and standalone shower. The spacious bedrooms have walk-in closets and ensuite bathrooms.

If you’re looking for something more lock-and-leave, check out the sleek new townhomes being built by Robert Elliott Custom Homes, starting from $695,000. The contemporary two-story townhomes have two different floor plans to choose from: a two-bedroom, three-bath interior lot home that has 2,422 square-feet or a three-bedroom, five-bath corner lot home that has an impressive 3,198 square-feet. In total, there will be only eight townhomes built.

When it comes time to build, Long Cove has an A-list of builders and architects that are vetted and experienced building at Cedar Creek Lake. The architects include lauded names like Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro Architects, John Boyd and Associates, Thomas Weber, and BK Designs Studio with Robert Elliott Custom Homes.
