The Ridge Neighborhood Tour on Lake Martin

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the new “Russell Cabins at the Lake.”  These are new cabins within the The Ridge development that are supposed to channel the simple feel and nostalgia of Russell rental cabins, but will be deeded homes that you’ll own and not rent.  Basically, it is Russell Lands’ solution to people who have asked, “Can I buy my Russell Cabin?”  They are in the $800-$1m price range.   The homes will be on the Kowaliga Bay part of Lake Martin, and are only a small part of The Ridge’s total development.

If you would like to see waterfront homes and lots for sale right now in The Ridge, CLICK HERE to go to my Ridge Neighborhood page. I have a report that shows every waterfront home and lot for sale – by all agents, all brokerages, on Lake Martin. It pulls from the Lake Martin MLS so it will be current no matter when you visit the page.

The Ridge is a huge waterfront development in the middle of Lake Martin, AL.  Like most newer developments, The Ridge has all kinds of neighborhood amenities like sidewalks, a clubhouse and pool, beach area, tennis courts, hiking trails, etc.  It is home to The Ridge Marina, and was developed by Russell Lands, a company that builds high end neighborhoods on Lake Martin.

The Ridge has an Alexander City address, and has all the city utilities you would expect. By car it’s convenient to some of the more city-fied, hip shopping and eating spots like Catherine’s Market and SpringHouse, so if you forget your gluten-free brownie mix, you’re in luck. By water, The Ridge is in the center of Lake Martin – Chimney and Acapulco rocks are right around the corner.

Lots vary, of course, because this is Lake Martin.  Some lots in The Ridge are steep and rocky with huge deep water views.  Some are further back in a slough and are more quiet and gently sloping.  Basically, you’re paying for the location on the lake, the strict architectural review of structures, the list of approved builders, the sense of exclusivity, and the neighborhood amenities. If this fits your style, The Ridge might be a good match.

There’s also a townhouse community called The Ledges at The Ridge within this neighborhood that offers waterfront town homes.
