Dreaming of owning a home on a pristine mountain lake front in Western NC? A private extraordinary wilderness retreat nestled in the Smoky Mountains, far removed from the hustle and bustle? Then consider the casual elegance of Fontana Lake Estates, a gated community of estate-sized home sites in the southern Appalachian mountains. This is an opportunity to purchase premium Western North Carolina real estate on Fontana Lake, a scenic 10,600-acre body of water that stretches for 30 miles along the southern edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Since opening in 1996, more than ninety owners have built permanent homes or seasonal getaways on
this prized Fontana Lake real estate. The 1300-acre community occupies a four-mile private peninsula framed by the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Nantahala National Forest. Fontana Lake Estates’ mountain land offers unspoiled views, emerald waterfronts, lush mountain foliage, and breathtaking sunsets.
Lake front homes and home sites as well as lake view homes and homesites are available. Call 888-777-1090 to arrange a private showing of the most superb mountain real estate in Western North Carolina.
Fontana Lake Estates offers mountain living at its best — Western North Carolina lake property in a pristine, unspoiled setting that’s framed by a backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains. It’s a lush paradise of spectacular mountains, pea
ceful lakes, rushing streams and undisturbed woodlands that adds beauty to every home; and naturally invites an outdoor lifestyle.
Fontana Lake Estate’s developers — Paul Kell and Charles Norwood — went to great lengths to preserve the land’s natural beauty by providing underground utilities to each of the estate-sized lots. Our policy of judicious timber cutting continues to
be enforced by covenants that protect the wilderness setting. As a result, many of Fontana Lake Estates homes are virtually hidden from their neighbors.
Fontana Lake is a boater’s and fisherman’s dream. Many sportsmen fish the lake’s deep waters for bass, walleye and pike. And for fly fishermen, the lake provides access to some of the region’s favorite trout streams, hidden deep in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and only accessible by boat or by foot.
With more than 90 seasonal and full-time residents. Fontana Lake
has grown from a promising Western North Carolina mountain property into a well-established residential community.
The developers and Property Owners Association have provided essential amenities without sacrificing the wilderness character of Fontana Lake Estates. All utilities are underground. The wide main access road is paved and stretches five miles from the entrance at US 19/74 to the tip of the Fontana Lake Estate peninsula. And well-maintained natural roads provide all-weather access to all homes in the 1300-acre community.
Most lakefront homes have private docks or boat slips. And for homes with lake and mountain views, there’s a private marina with boat ramp, dry storage units, day use docks and lakeside gazebos with swings, picnic tables and grills. The development also has one and one-half miles of wooded walking trails with an observation deck overlooking the lake. More Amenity Information.
