Lot 53 - Beautiful Main Front on Lake Gaston - 20,000 +/- Acre Lake - 350 Miles of Shore Line
Lot 53 in Peete River Farm Subdivision on the main lake of Lake Gaston. The lot has mature hardwood and pines creating an exquisite home site overlooking the lake. Boat dock or dock and boathouse are allowed. There is county water and electric on the premises. Peete River Farm Subdivision is located approximately 3.5 to 4 hours from Washington DC, approximately 2 hours from Richmond and 1.5 hours from Raleigh, NC. So a short drive out of the city to a wonderful get away on the Lake will make the drive worthwhile. The Lake provides some of the best striper, bass, walleye, crappie and cat fishing around. If you're not a fisherman the Lake also provides some great waterfowl hunting. With over 20,000 acre of surface water the Lake provides plenty of room for boating, water skiing, wave runners and just about any other water sport imaginable.
Lake Gaston is a "community" of the privately owned property surrounding the Lake (no public parks, but public boat ramps). The 20,000+-acre lake has 350 miles of shoreline in Virginia and North Carolina and 5 counties including Mecklenburg and Brunswick in Virginia and Warren, Halifax and Northampton in North Carolina. It is 34 miles long and 1.3 miles across at its widest point, with average water depths of 40 feet. This is a privately owned lake along the Roanoke River Basin created to generate hydroelectric power. The facility is owned by Dominion Resources and like all bodies of water this size, it operates within the regulations of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and the U.S. Corps of Engineers. It is monitored by the U.S. Coast Guard and the Wildlife Commissions of both North Carolina and Virginia. Dominion Power owns the lake and the shoreline. They also own a variable "strip" of land surrounding the shore, which is needed for slight variations in lake elevation and emergency flood control. Your permitted use of the land between your property line and the shoreline (which varies depending on the topography) is regulated by Dominion's operating license, as is your permitted use of the lake for constructing docks. The main body of the lake runs east/west and is approximately 35 miles long between the dams. Eaton Ferry Bridge is the only bridge crossing over the main lake and is centrally located and elevated to allow boats to go under. The lake also includes 20 Creeks that run north or south off the main body.
Because of our recreational and relaxed pace, our population of residents on the Lake is drawn primarily from a very large and diverse mix of vacation homeowners and retirees. Approximately half are full time residents.
