Lake James Waterfront Lots & Land
If you’ve been dreaming of building a lake house, Lake James, NC may be the perfect location for your dreams to become a reality. Along this gorgeous lake’s 150+ miles of shoreline, lots are listed for sale, ranging in size from half an acre to over 10 acres in total. Many lots are still wooded when they’re listed for sale, while others have already been cleared and prepared for construction to begin. Some lots are slightly removed from the water’s edge (but still within walking distance of the shore), but many are located directly on the waterfront. If a waterfront lot is a must-have for your dream retreat, you’ll find many options to choose from around Lake James.
Some waterfront lots around Lake James include specified areas of shoreline, some of which may be suitable for dock construction. If you enjoy fishing, boating, or just watching the sunrise from the pier, you may want to consider looking for a lot that has space suitable for a dock. Due to Lake James’ location in the Blue Ridge Mountains, lots around the lake are often sloped to varying degrees. Some have a gentle slope down to the water that is easily walkable, with no staircase required. Others are much steeper, and a staircase would need to be constructed in order to reach the waterfront. Keep this in mind as you search for the perfect lot, especially if you or your loved ones have specific accessibility needs.
The lots around Lake James are all included in various subdivisions, including Bear Cliff, Black Forest, Old Wildlife Club, Plantation Point, Sunset Point, Waterglyn, The Arbor at Lake James, and The Peninsula at Lake James.
