This is a Truly Eye-Catching Property
This property is generational; There is something here to entice folks of all walks of life, all year long with something to do.
Nestled in the rolling hills of West Georgia, this rare 566 +/- acre recreational retreat offers a culmination of outdoor pursuits, sporting adventure, and family living on a private 51-acre deepwater lake. Located in a country setting approximately halfway between two of Georgia's largest cities, this property offers a rural lifestyle but is not too far away from major conveniences. Chimney Lake features a magnificent waterfront home set up for entertaining and with beautiful views of the lake. Deep hardwood forest ravines, four flowing streams, open pastureland, hayfields, wildlife, a lake, and heavily wooded areas offer both an air of seclusion, along with dynamic scenery among the diverse 566 acres. With exceptional roll, the property features nearly 150 ft of elevation change.
“From a habitat standpoint, this property is an open canvas. Because of the vast amount of mature natural timber, water, and open fields, there are a lot of easy things one can do to this property to customize it to one’s own uses. If it were me, I would thin the timber for aesthetics, reintroduce fire and maximize the hay meadows for both wildlife, aesthetics, and some income. I could have this property turned into both one of the most beautiful and most wildlife prolific properties in Georgia and not spend any more money than what would be harvested in the timber. Because of the roll, and soil fertility, I could have a great quail, deer, turkey, and duck property.” - Jon Kohler
The 51-acre private, deep water lake is exceptionally watered, fed by three flowing streams, which total 1.5 miles of streams. Aside from finding a lake of this size for exclusive private recreational use, what also makes this lake so unique is the 2.5 miles of grass, park-like accessible shoreline.
"This lake had one of the most unique features I have seen in 30 years. 100% of the lake frontage is driveable with a golf cart. It’s super kid-friendly. It’s like a private park.” - Jon Kohler
The property has great deer and turkey. Whether kayaking, biking, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, waterskiing, tubing, or sunning along the 51+ acre lake, the recreational pursuits at Chimney Lake are nearly unlimited. This property offers recreation year-round.
“What immediately struck me about this property is it's generational. There is something here to entice folks of all walks of life, all year long with something to do.” - Jon Kohler
“There is more than enough good fishing for the current family. However, given the quality of the water, and the size of this lake, a few simple things could turn this into a world-class trophy bass fishery. It would not take much.” - Jon Kohler
Rich wood tones, grand living spaces, porches-a-plenty, and lakeside views make this spacious, 6,100 +/- square foot lodge something to behold. The lodge is great for family and entertaining and has five bedrooms and four and a half baths and two kitchens (one downstairs and one upstairs). The downstairs floor has its own self-sufficient living quarters and would make for a great in-laws suite complete with a full kitchen and laundry room of its own. The home is inviting from every corner with beautiful curb appeal and bright and plentiful windows. While one could relax by rocking chair on the front porch, by porch swing on the back patio, or simply drink a cup of coffee off the back deck, perhaps the best way to enjoy the views is by the dramatic outdoor lakefront kitchen and outdoor space. Located just steps off the house's indoor kitchen - amplifying ease of entertaining - this outdoor space looks like a scene straight out of HGTV.
“I know in my business, I hear a lot of folks talk about spending time with their grandchildren. The trick isn’t getting the grandkids to come, oftentimes it’s their parents. Sometimes, it’s tough to find room for three generations to spread out with enough space. Not here in this in the 6,100 sq ft home! Not only is there something to do for everyone but in my experience, having that space makes family time more enjoyable.” - Jon Kohler
The property also comes with an old western-style home office on the southeast portion of the property and an additional 3 BD/ 1 BA rental property along the northwest portion of the land. For the equine lover, there is a beautiful horse barn overlooking open pastures, a hay barn, and an equipment barn on site, and the Social Storm aspects here are particularly appealing.
The property is in close proximity to nearby towns and attractions, with downtown LaGrange only 20 min away and featuring numerous charming and quaint eateries. Chimney Hill is just 40 minutes away from Columbus, Georgia's second-largest city, and it is just one hour to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for air travel and is just 20 minutes to the famed Calloway Gardens, and 30 minutes to the Chattahoochee River.
“I like the area coming here from Lick Skillet and Turkey Scratch. This area is just cool - Smoke Rise, Hogg Mountain, Old Chimney, Wood Valley, Pioneer Village, Cannonville - they're all really cool names.” - Jon Kohler
Chimney Lake also shares an additional value feature that makes it even more unique. In our experience of selling over $1B in properties like this, over three decades in all types of markets, we recognized that some properties were sought out not only for recreation and enjoyment but also as a place for protection and wealth preservation. Over time, we developed a 10-point scorecard of measuring these attributes and a decade ago we trademarked the term Social “Storm Properties.” Chimney Lake is a great social storm property.
