LAKE LANIER HISTORY & INFORMATION
Forsyth County, one of the nations fastest growing communities, is an area of pastoral rolling hills and beautiful countryside. The county is slowly changing as new residents move into the moderate to lavish subdivisions. Many of these residents are building near the shores of Lake Lanier, a 38,000 acre man-made lake, and in the southern end of the county where access to Georgia 400 makes for an easier commute to downtown Atlanta. Forsyth County, named after statesman John Forsyth, was established in 1832 by legislative act. Forsyth is noted for its equestrian events, and is still agrarian and rural in many parts. Many Atlantans have discovered that living near the lake outweighs the commute to employment. The area is especially attractive to airline pilots and those who do not work regular business hours as well as those who commute to office parks along the Georgia 400 corridor. The great majority of residents live at the lake full-time, as opposed to a decade ago when the lakeside areas were sparsely populated except for the summer months or weekend retreats. Cumming homes for sale start at about $150,000 and Lake Lanier homes for sale and luxury estate homes are priced up to $4.5 million or more, and a deep water one-half acre lot with boat dock privileges can range $300,000 to $600,000+. As with most resort type areas, there are pockets of Lake Lanier estate-type homes in price ranges close to $5 million or more. Country living near a tranquil deep-water lake is the dream of many. If the idea of watching sun sets reflecting across the water from the comfort of your own deck or dock appeals to you, contact us to explore the possibilities of Lake Lanier real estate in Forsyth County.
