We just visited Del Webb’s new Active Adult Community at Lake Oconee Greensboro Georgia.  Lake Oconee has been a hot spot for those fortunate enough to “retire to the lake” for years. It is the home of Reynolds Plantation where homes go from $400,000 to well over a million.  The area has developed high end shopping and gourmet restaurants.  I have heard a lot about Lake Oconee and now after visiting can see why it is a very nice place to live.

Del Webb at Lake Oconee is coming along nicely. Most of the streets are in as well as the model home park and the sales center.  I toured several lot pods and was surprised to see high elevation lots with nice long vistas the fortunate homeowners will get.  In my mind I am thinking everything was going to be flat, but that is not the case. Also some very nice lake view lots were spotted on at least two pods.  

At the entrance will be a large community monuments with a gorgeous waterfall feature that should give quite an impression. Then the gated security follows as you enter this new 55+ community.  The sales center and model home park will be on the right. Looks like maybe 12 model homes from my count.  The 21,000 square feet activities center will be nearby.  The elevation slopes as you follow the Del Webb Parkway through the community towards the lake.  At the lake there will be two boat ramps and docks with about 40 boat slips for the community.  On the hill to the left will be a nice covered pavilion for picnicking with a view over the lake.  A quite interesting feature being planned is a RV and boat storage facility right on the property.  That would be nice to have your boat right in your community next to your boat ramp with no highway towing necessary.

My wife and I are still talking about this new community and I am sure there will be quite a stir the Ritz Carlton Lodge on August 3 & 4 when when the VIP preview event will take place. If you have an interest in 55+ lake property and communities, you need to go to Del Webb’s Lake Oconee web page and register for this VIP event as soon as possible. I believe it may be booked up but an opening is possible if you act now.  

We have toured two other Pulte Del Webb communities and were very impressed by the livable, energy efficient floor pans. There will be the same floor plans offered here, plus Villas.  There will be 895 lots on 400 acres, so this is a reasonable size community.

Del Webb at Lake Oconee community is located off Lake Oconee Parkway in the middle of Georgia’s Lake Country and very near the Lake Oconee Village shops.
