Need an inexpensive getaway: Head to the north Georgia mountains

When it comes to living large in Georgia, it’s hard to beat Lake Burton. The beautiful waterfront draws boaters, campers and swimmers. If you’re dreaming of country life, this 81-acre North Georgia estate is right up your alley. Clarkesville’s 1287 Kelly Mountain Road property is on the market for $2,250,000, and will offer its new owner to live in their own Lake Burton paradise.

“Located just four miles from LaPrade’s marina on Lake Burton, this newly constructed mountain home features three Bedrooms and four full bathrooms plus a bunk room and is perched on a hilltop in the center of 81+ completely private acres overlooking spectacular stacked mountain and sunset views,” the listing said. “The interior features an open floor plan with a dine-in kitchen including custom barnwood cabinetry, concrete countertops, Kitchenaid range, Sub Zero fridge and walk-in pantry with stacked laundry unit.”

While the home’s location is its greatest asset, there is more to the luxury listing than its big mountain views.

“The family room features reclaimed heart pine flooring, barnwood walls, a masonry stone fireplace and 3 sets of French doors leading out to a covered porch and firepit beyond,” the listing said. “Two guest bedrooms and 2 full baths complete the main floor. Upstairs, a private owner’s suite offers a wall of windows showcasing big mountain views, 2 walk-in closets and a private bath with double vanity and tiled shower.”

Outside of the home window, there are a whopping 81 acres to enjoy.

“A spacious lofted bunk room with a full bath offers plenty of space for extra guests. A one and a half car detached garage is located just behind the house. This beautiful acreage offers a mix of open fields, woodlands, creeks and multiple knolls with big mountain views. The property has three miles of cleared trails running throughout for four-wheelers or side-by-sides.”
