LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: This property is located in south Virginia on the NW shore of Lake Gaston (Poplar Creek) between I-85 and I-95 halfway (80 miles) between the two southern state capitols of Raleigh, NC and Richmond, VA and only 200 miles from the nation's capitol, Washington, DC.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Of the 156 acres, 116 acres is cutover timber land replanted in 2014. 30 acres is still in mature timber mostly along the waterfront and a Stream Managenent Zone (SMZ) that runs through the property. This SMZ has many beautiful building sites on both sides with great views of mature hardwoods in the ravine carved out over the centuries by the no-name stream. Here is an aerial view of the SMZ. The other 10 acres provides a private deeded access to state road 903. Here is a 2015 map showing all 156 acres in four tracts.

UNIQUE FEATURE: The peninsula that portrudes into the lake from the southwest corner of the property has great possibilities for a large house with 270 degree waterfront view. Here is an aerial view of the peninsula. Here is a clip of the 1999 plat zoomed into the peninsula area of the plat showing exact dimensions. See the whole 1999 plat that is minus the 10.1 acre tract for private access to Hwy 903 that was purchased after 1999.

Lake Gaston: A real plus for Lake Gaston is its relatively constant water level, which generally fluctuates only 6 inches higher or lower than its average 199.5 feet above mean sea level.
