Kevin Eason has been the General Manager of the StillWaters Residential Association for several years now. Kevin is extremely competent and helpful, and the neighborhood has benefited from his expertise. Recently I sent Kevin an email, asking him some general questions about StillWaters. In the course of selling waterfront real estate around Lake Martin, I get asked for information I don’t have, and it is really nice to have someone like Kevin to lean on for good answers. I am extremely grateful for his advice below! The best way to reach Kevin directly is to call him at his office at 256-825-2990 or see the equally informative StillWaters Residential Association website here: StillWaters RA.

Q: How many total acres are inside StillWaters? How much of that is waterfront?
A: StillWaters is approximately 2,400 acres and we have 23 miles of private roads.
I do not know how much is waterfront but we have several miles of waterfront.

Q: How many unimproved lots?
A:There are currently 759 vacant lots; however, a few lots are very large and could be subdivided into several more building lots.
Q: What is the breakdown on waterfront lots vs. interior lots that are unimproved?
A: I do not have a breakdown of waterfront to interior lots. I can tell you there are only 14 vacant waterfront lots left, a few are listed for sale by their owners.
Q: What do the homeowner association dues cover?
A: The SWRA annual dues include the maintenance of the private roads, gates, pool, tennis courts, park, and other common areas.
Q: What percentage of your residents are permanent?
A: We think we have approximately 600 permanent residents. This is difficult to determine because a portion of our residents live in StillWaters six months out of the year and then somewhere else the rest of the year. There are 954 registered voters inside StillWaters.
Q: What frequent questions do you get from new or prospective owners?
A: The most frequently asked question by new interior owners concerns access to the water. The marina has plenty of boat slips for rent and you can pay an annual fee to use the boat ramp. We do not have a beach or other access for owners. The most frequently asked question overall is where can I rent more storage space.
Q: And lastly, how are the sales in StillWaters?
A: We had 157 properties sell in StillWaters in 2015, 136 sold in 2014, and 132 sold in 2013.
