CANNON COUNTRY: Built in the mid-40’s, this one-of-a-kind property was named after one of the first families to settle in Rabun County, who has decided to list their beloved Lake Burton estate. As well as being one of the first lots leased on Lake Burton, it is also one of the largest lots on the lake. The total privacy and serenity of the 3.69 acres offers a huge quiet cove with almost 400 ft of shoreline!!! CannonCountry is a true original and one of the last authentic Lake Burton properties left on the entire lake. Tucked away on a small, private cove it lies within the very desirable Cherokee Cove, on the south end of the lake. The almost 4-acre property is typical of this area: virtual thick green mountain rainforest-like terrain. CannonCountry is surrounded by open-space Georgia Power land, adding even more private wooded area, protecting the area’s natural wildlife. This property is covered with beautiful blooming mountain laurel, magnolias and massive trees, which only add to the tranquility and already peaceful terrain from both the cottage above and the boathouse and floating dock below. The spectacular 372 ft of shoreline and your own private cove ensure safe swimming for all! Cherokee Cove is becoming one of the most desirable areas due to very little boat traffic and its close proximity to Atlanta. The glassy diamond-studded sunrise waters make the property next to unmatchable and one that plays host to the best area on the lake for all types of watersports. Original EVERYTHING, this property exudes rich history and 5 generations worth of fond memories. The original one-room structure still houses the beautiful large working rock fireplace. Story has it that it was one of the first ten structures built in the 1940s and remains the main living room of the cottage today. Several additions have been made to the home since 1945, including a large family-style kitchen with panoramic window views of the lake below, two guest rooms that share a full bath, and a porch to soak in the beauty of the emerald green lake as it glistens in the sun. The newest addition is the large master suite with its own private entrance, A/C, laundry and large bath. The Cannon family carefully created each remodel to ensure the cottage maintained its original charm. The 'Love Shack' is a quaint bunkhouse that accommodates additional room for family gatherings and reunions. A stone patio completes the property with the perfect ambience for alfresco summer dining. This property is a MUST SEE!!! Whether you are nostalgic for the 'good ole days' on Lake Burton or seek privacy galore to build your dream lake home, CannonCountry offers unsurmountable options and is waiting for you to make it your own.
