35 Sterling View Drive, Lake Martin
Eclectic, AL 36024
New Price! – Lake Martin home for sale- Welcome to 35 Sterling View Drive, a rare gem of a cabin on the south side of Lake Martin. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin is located in the Tallassee Slough with a beautiful view of Kowaliga Bay spanning all the way to Kowaliga Bridge. This is a historic part of Lake Martin – many people grew up coming to this part of the lake – and it’s simply rare to find a 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin in good condition, with a good view, in this area.
The heavily wooded property has over 300 feet of shoreline, and while you are looking out to one of the biggest views of Lake Martin, the cabin feels peaceful and shady.
The street side of the home has a large parking pad and a 2 car garage. The landscape is natural and low maintenance.
You’ll immediately notice that all major indoor and outdoor living spaces are oriented to take full advantage of the view. There are plenty of areas to enjoy that view including a covered porch, a dock with a covered boat slip, a large upper level deck on the lake side of the home, and a screened porch on the lower level.
The great room is full of windows and French doors. It has vaulted ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, and is open to an updated kitchen. In the kitchen you’ll find lots of counter space, plenty of cabinets, modern appliances, and a pantry.
Just off the kitchen is the large upper level deck where you are very close to the water, and shaded by the landscape.
Around the corner from the great room is the master bedroom and attached bathroom.
In between the great room and the master are the stairs leading down to the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms and second full bath.
At the bottom of the landing is a tiled laundry with lake access. Wet swimmers can enter through this door, head straight to the bathroom, and leave wet towels and bathing suits downstairs.
On the opposite side of the landing are the 2nd and third bedrooms. From the laundry area, we walk out onto the covered screened porch at lake level. it’s a short walk from here to the water.
At the lake’s edge the water is clear and shallow with a sandy bottom, perfect for swimming, plus deeper water off the end of the dock. You can see Kowaliga Bridge in the distance, and know you are just minutes from Anchor Bay Marina, Kowaliga Marina, Sinclair’s Restaurant, and Chimney Rock.
The covered boat house will protect your boat, and there’s plenty of room for friends who visit to tie up their boats as well.
For those who are nostalgic about this historical area of Lake Martin, and those who love the shady, peaceful feel of a cabin in the trees, this could be the lake retreat you’ve been wishing for.
