Turn ‘Playing at Smith Mountain Lake’ Into ‘Living at the Lake’

Great marketing by our local chamber of commerce and others have helped people discover that Smith Mountain Lake of southwest Virginia, also known as the “jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains,” is one of the top 100 lake communities to live at. Smith Mountain Lake’s attraction is the 20,600 acre lake and 500 miles of shoreline.

It is no longer the hidden getaway that friends and family discovered only on their vacations.  It is a place with great residential communities that offer a lake lifestyle with rural beauty, a slower pace and lower taxes. The lake offers a lifestyle few people get to enjoy in their everyday lives.

Surprising Finds

You will find a first or second home in a quiet cove with just a few neighbors in sight or retire to a well-planned community with shared amenities that include swimming pools, fitness facilities, boat slips, fishing, hiking, tennis and numerous golf courses. They all share a breath-taking view of Smith Mountain Lake and the mountains.

Retirees come from all over the country to retire here at Smith Mountain Lake. They find a community that offers an active lifestyle and a rich social life full of annual events held at the lake and surrounding areas. There is a strong volunteer base that is organized by many of the local churches and non-profits to keep you busy and engaged in helping others. But you will also find young families with loads of activities to keep active and social.

Stress-free Lifestyle

You can imagine drinking your coffee with a view of the lake from your porch or catching a fish right off your dock with your grandchild. How about spending the day with the kids on the boat and then dining at one of your favorite waterfront restaurants? Couples enjoy drinking a glass of wine from one of the local vineyards and watching a sunset over the water. How about driving and hiking part of the Blue Ridge Parkway because it is so close? There are also quirky antique stores and plenty of shopping to discover. The memories are limitless. The lake-lifestyle can be yours.

Abundant Real Estate Opportunities

There is a wide range of housing types and real estate prices on the lake and in the surrounding areas.

Condominiums

For buyers looking for an affordable way to be at the lake now, there are listings that range from $99,000 for a 1 bedroom and 1 bath unit with a fantastic view of the lake to a condo overlooking Halesford Bridge right in the hub of things that has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Large enough to accommodate your guests these units range from $360,000 – $450,000. Full amenities plus convenience to water sport activities and special events that are held frequently steps from this condo location.

 

Single Family Waterfront Homes

Single-family waterfront homes of all sizes range from $365,000 to luxury waterfront homes that start at $800,000. Depending on your needs and wants, the lake provides a fantastic background to some of the most luxurious homes on the lake. What better way to make memories than relaxing with your family from your own dock house with bar or pulling the kids behind your boat? Smith Mountain Lake loves golfers too! Some of our communities include waterfront luxury homes that also provide 18-hole PGA Championship courses.

 

Single Family Water Access Homes

There are finds to be had with water access homes that give you a little more privacy and acreage but also give you full access to the lake with a community boat dock. Your family can still enjoy the day of the lake just minutes away from your new home.

Farms and Ranches

Are you moving to the country as a horse lover but love the idea of playing at the lake?
There are over 80 plus listings of farms and ranches with as little as 5 acreages to well over 100 plus acres for your horses or livestock.  These properties range from $250,000 to $1 million plus depending on the size of house, stables and fenced in pastures. Smith Mountain Lake is an area where you could be riding in a horse show in the morning and taking your boat out for a sunset cruise.

The communities of Moneta, Huddleston, Wirtz, Hardy, Goodview, Penhook and Union Hall offer home buyers a balance between rural and urban living. They provide a great place to raise a family or retire. Cities like Roanoke, Lynchburg, Dulles and Charlotte provide big city access to airports for travel, hospitals for the most modern care facilities and stores for shopping.

But don’t worry, there is plenty of clothes shopping, antique stores, major supermarkets, home improvement and garden centers, marinas, movie theater, restaurants, medical practices, dentists, and many more services at the lake. We have our wonderful farmers’ market, many local produce markets, fruit orchards, wineries and favorite ice cream stores. We have great local colleges and universities nearby like Virginia Tech, Liberty University, Roanoke College, etc. And we have employment opportunities. You can either commute to the closest city or stay local right at the lake.

Whether you are out on your boat, hiking at the state park or horseback riding at area trails, you can make ‘playing at the lake’ your ‘living at the lake’ life-style.

Client Tesimonials

“Over the last year we have spoken with several real estate agents in the area. Jennifer was the first person that earned our trust by working closely with us, asking relevant questions, and by being extremely responsive to find a home we would love. She took the time to send us updates on homes that were within our budget and exactly what we were looking for. She didn’t just set up a filter and let it automate results. I felt that she looked at new houses on the market and thought about how they might fit our family and what were looking for. We would recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Smith Mountain Lake area.”

“Jennifer has been the best realtor I’ve ever dealt with. She was always quick to respond and meet us wherever, whenever. She got to know us personally and would match us with the best houses. She cared more about our happiness with a home than the incentive she was getting. She helped with dealing with house inspections and dealing with the seller as well.”

“We had a lot of issue’s with selling and buying another home, but Jennifer’s negotiating skills kept us from making big mistakes, like not having a home inspection. Otherwise, it would have cost us $1000.00 dollars. She was on top of every detail, even if it was a small one. Also, she was very responsive in returning phone calls. We highly recommend her as your agent. We will certainly use her again if need be.”

“Jennifer is a real estate agent we would use again. When choosing a real estate agent you want someone knowledgeable in all areas of buying and selling, who knows the “ins and outs” of the local area that also has a great personality who can make the sometimes stressful experience as enjoyable as possible. Jennifer is a triple threat! Very knowledgeable of the real estate business and the processes that go along with it. VERY RESPONSIVE. We were buying a property in Smith Mountain Lake and we lived out of town and that was difficult for us. Jennifer made us feel like we could call her anytime and that gave us a level of comfort.”

Answered all of our questions and understood completely what we were looking for and got us into the house of our dreams. Jennifer is an AMAZING agent. We plan to use her in the future and refer her to everyone we know. ”
