Equality, AL 36026
Listing cancelled – 3-14-13: Please call for details…. Heads up Parker Creek buyers looking for 4 bedrooms and a quality, rustic feel. 128 Orchid Drive is a move in ready home in the heart of the Parker Creek area of Lake Martin. The home is protected in a short slough right off the big water, so swimming is great, and action is close by.
The home is on a leased lot, but Alabama Power has offered to sell the lot. Details are available by contacting John Coley at 334 221 5862 or emailing him with this form or at info @ lakemartinvoice .com – The owners have been mailed a certified letter from Alabama Power saying that this lot qualifies in their new lot purchase program. It can be purchased for $150,000 from Alabama Power. Neither Lake Martin Voice Realty nor the owner make any guarantees about the terms of the lot sale by Alabama Power, but to be sure, this is an extremely unique time in the history of leased lots and waterfront real estate on Lake Martin. If you would like to learn more about the Leased Lot real estate market on Lake Martin, click here for the leased lot category on the blog. But please keep in mind that most of these were written before AL Power sent out these letters, that is, before 9-27-12.
But hey, enough about the letter. This home is a great buy regardless of whether it is deeded or leased. The home is priced to take the leased lot into account.
The yard is flat and wooded and is very private. From the street the home is tasteful and rustic with a mountain cabin feel. As you enter the street side door, you find the kitchen immediately to the right. Wood floors and ceilings, and even walls lead into the main living area on this level.
The home has 4 bedrooms a three baths, plus a loft and a lower living level. The main level has a split floor plan with 2 beds and full bath on one side, and a master suite on the opposite side.
The loft area is currently being used as a study, but could also work as a 5th bedroom.
Back on the main level, the master suite on the opposite side of the main living area from the guest bedrooms. It shares the fireplace with the living room and has a full bath attached.
Tucked between the kitchen and the main living area are the stairs to the lower level of the home. Downstairs you find another great living space, access to the lake, the 4th bedroom and full bath, and a huge storage area.
I know you must like to hang out and relax outside and near the lake. Why else would you be here, right? This home has plenty of areas for that. The deck off the main level leads to the lake. Parts of it are covered, and all have a great view of Lake Martin. The lake level also has plenty of spots to enjoy the shade and outdoors.
The woods to the left of the home keep it feeling extra private, and the sandy beach is ready for fun. This low maintenance yard has a fire pit and zero grass to mow.
From the end of the dock you can see how close you are to the big water of Parker Creek, and appreciate how protected you are from big boat traffic.
To recap: Parker Creek, 4 bedrooms plus a loft, rustic feel, move-in ready, lot available for sale. Come see for yourself how private it feels to be right in the middle of Parker Creek.
