One of the Carolina’s most hidden gems is Roanoke Reserve. A naturally preserved 35-acre wooded enclave that surrounds a deep-water cove with 2,850-feet of shoreline on the main lake, Roanoke Reserve is located on Lake Gaston near the North Carolina-Virginia border. First-time buyers of Reserve property have the advantage of choosing both the perfect spot among several options ─ more space and natural privacy, a smaller lot, or being part of a closer-knit community ─ and tailoring their home design and living space to be just right.
Living on the Reserve is simplified by personalized concierge and living assistance programs. The whole custom approach makes it perfect as a favorite escape destination or year-round home base ─ with easy, carefree living for residents at all phases of life, their extended family, and friends.
“The authentic rural, friendly and more relaxed way of life reflected in the communities around the lake, close to the Reserve, take you back to simpler times. Yet, it’s an easy drive or just a mouse click to the rest of the world when you want or need to tune in,” says Anne Hartley, co-owner and developer with husband Al .
The natural beauty, mixed forest, inspiring views of water and nature, and slightly buffered waterfront setting make the Reserve one-of-a-kind; not to mention the weather is most favorable with mild temperatures and a distinct change of seasons. In addition to the full spectrum of water-based activities, golf courses, a day spa, retro country stores, quaint restaurants, and shopping are all nearby.
Roanoke Reserve is two hours away from Williamsburg and Jamestown and an easy drive south to the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area or north to Richmond and DC. Rosemont Vineyards and Winery is only a 15-minute drive from the Reserve. “We take great pride in making the Reserve a reality and always enjoy the opportunity to personally introduce this special place to newcomers,” says Hartley.
Roanoke Reserve is ideal for those seeking upscale waterfront living tuned to their personal lifestyle and stage in life ─ and value the eco-friendly principles of preservation, appreciation for nature and environmental compatibility.
