Custom Home Builders in Lake Oconee, Georgia
Build Your Georgia Custom Home at Lake Sinclair & Lake Jackson
This is Georgia's Lake Country- Just an hour east of Atlanta, Lake Oconee & Sinclair provide a bastion of recreation and relaxation unsurpassed in Georgia. Five counties surround these lakes- Morgan, Greene, Hancock, Putnam, and Baldwin. The regions are steeped in history- the name Oconee comes from the Creek Indians and means big waters'. And these lakes live up to that name. Over 34,000 acres, and boasting almost 800 miles of shoreline, the region hosts numerous water-skiing and fishing tournaments and golf events. In fact, Greene County alone features 7 world-class courses. Shopping also remains a favorite activity- several boutiques and local shops offer an array of antiques, fashion, furnishings and crafts. Milledgeville, Eatonton, and Madison are stops along the Antebellum trail- where Victorian and Antebellum estates harkens to a bygone era.
All of the "lake counties" are named for Revolutionary War heroes- Nathanael Greene and Israel Putnam were generals of the war. Abraham Baldwin, in addition to his service in the war, served as a congressman, and founded the University of Georgia. Sergeant William Jasper was recognized for a courageous defense of Savannah. And of course, John Hancock was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. As the state capital until 1868, Milledgeville was an important thriving city and subsequently became a stopping point for General Sherman's March to the sea. The city was devastated, but most of the rest of the region, since it wasn't along the route, and sparsely populated, escaped the wrath of the Union Army. Milledgeville is also home to Georgia College and State University, considered to be the state's premier public liberal arts university. Georgia Military College, founded in 1879, now occupies the Old Capitol Building.
Nearby Lake Jackson, though smaller than the twin lakes of Oconee and Sinclair is still large enough at 4700 acres to provide opportunities for water-sports and lots of fishing. It was originally designed to provide electricity for Macon. All three of the lakes are manmade reservoirs, generating electricity for Georgia Power. The youngest of the reservoirs is Lake Oconee. In less than 25 years, it has become the premiere destination for lake living. Many upscale developments and resort communities have been established here- Harbor Club, Reynolds Plantation, Port Armour, Cuscowila, among others. There are multimillion dollar houses in many of these developments, and, like many reservoirs, affordable housing just around the next bend of the lake. You may have always dreamed of living on a lake, wetting a fishing line from your back yard, or watching a lake sunset from your deck or pontoon. Maybe its inspiration to write a novel- as three noted authors have. Whatever it is you are looking for- a second home for the weekend, or a custom home to raise your family, Lake Country Georgia has it. Lots of water, lots of land, and lots of fun.
