Forest Lake Village at Lake Sinclair- Prestige Living at Practical Prices

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695

Forest Lake Village at Lake Sinclair is one of the few site built only neighborhoods on the lake.  With Lake Sinclair being nearly 60 years old much of the shoreline has been developed since before 1980.  There are lots of older fishing cabins and even travel trailers and many manufactured homes on Lake Sinclair.  Forest Lake Village on Lake Sinclair was one of the last huge developments in Putnam County and was developed and sold as a site built on neighborhood.  Forest Lake Village also is the only neighborhood that not only has private lake access, but interior lots have green ways that go to Lake Sinclair and some interior lots even offer nice lake views.

Forest Lake Village also has an active Home Owners Association with very community involved members.  You can check out the dues and meeting minutes and other neighborhood news via the Forest Lake Village at Lake Sinclair website.  You will also find a copy of their bylaws and subdivision covenants right on the web site as well.  And there's also the Village News on the site where you can find news about things affecting the subdivision.  

The location of Forest Lake Village subdivision is in Putnam County which has the lowest millage (2009 15.9)  rate of the three counties that border Lake Sinclair making property taxes much lower than on comparable priced homes that are in Baldwin or Hancock counties where other restricted communities are located.  The entrance to Forest Lake Village is right off Highway 441 about midway to Eatonton or Milledgeville.  This location makes it a very convenient location with just a short drive to shopping in either direction.  The web site also contains a map of the subdivision and most roads within Forest Lake Village or cul-de-sacs with a couple of  exceptions for ones that circle from and back to the main entrance road.  This makes it a less traveled subdivision and makes going out for a walk really nice.

There are currently 12 homes on the market in Forest Lake Village at Lake Sinclair.  Five of these are interior homes and seven are actual water front homes.  Prices on off water properties range from $165,000 to $195,000.  Waterfront listings start at only $347,000 and go as high as $799,000.  Recent sales include three interior homes and one waterfront property.  For more details on any of these listings click the links above or give me a call at 706-485-9668 (work) or 478-456-5161 (cell).  I'd also be more than happy to schedule a showing on any available home.

Right inside the entrance to Forest Lake Village is an information center and although not manned is a great source of information posted inside an area.  Lots of business cards, fliers, a map of subdivision, covenants are posted and new pertaining to HOA meetings as well.  I'd be happy to put you in touch with the President of the HOA if you want any more details if you give me a call.

Tammy--Great description of Forest Lake Village.  Years ago I thought I might want to own lake front property.  Now I am very content to like one mile from Lake Erie.  I can walk to the lake or I can drive down to enjoy sunsets and I don't have the erosion and upkeep to worry about.  I still love the opportunity to be near the water.  Thanks for the tour.

Mary - I feel the exact same way.  I live in a Lake community with deeded access, but not waterfront.  It's only a half mile walk to a lake lot that all property owners have the right to use from my house.  In the summer I walk my dogs there and we go for a swim.  And my property taxes are under $500 a year for deeded acess property.

Oh, I forgot about the lower taxes.  That is another benefit.  Have a relaxing evening.

Tam ! I love these local narratives on these areas at Lake Sinclair !

...and waterfront for under $350k sounds like a very nice deal for a place to retreat to like this !

Tammy - Love your presentation of the Forest Lake Village at Lake Sinclair.  I'm surrounded by the ocean but love lakefront properties and have so many fond memories of the fun my family had at my aunt's lakefront home when I was a child.
