Water Front homes are available close to Atlanta for under $150,000
Every day is like vacation. This beautiful private lake is suitable for virtually all water sports including skiing and wake boarding, and it is only 30 minutes from Buckhead. Leave the rat race of the city and relax

You will quickly forget the city as you kick back in the rural setting of this charming, tree lined lake. Cast for dinner off your private dock but don't be surprised if you tie into a 10 pound largemouth bass. Or join the birdwatchers and enjoy huge varieties of birds and other wildlife that are prolific in the region. Weekends usually find three or four pontoon party boats rafted together in the center of the lake as swimmers, young and old, drift about in the cool lake waters. Perhaps there are one or two wake boarders circling the lake showing off their newest jump or flip.
Sometimes it feels like you are stuck in the 1970's as the several vintage power boats take to the waves. And that is how should feel. Norris Lake was created in 1936 as a Fishing Camp featuring a number of small fishing cabins to serve as weekend retreats for the Atlanta City Slickers. Most of the original cabins have been dozed and new spacious homes now stand in their place but there remain a few tiny, block boathouses, barely large enough for a modern boat. New waterfront homes are still being built on this hidden lake, just minutes from Atlanta.
Norris Lake has a Snellville, GA mailing address but it is located part in Gwinnett and part in Dekalb and is just a short hop from Rockdale County. Travelling from Snellville to the Stonecrest Mall you will pass within a 100 yards of the lake and never even know it is there. So convenient, the lake is just seven minutes form the Wal-Mart Super Center and Publix in Centerville and 15 minutes from Conyers, Snellville and the Stonecrest Mall. It is truly country living at it's finest.....vacation every day. Waterfront homes can be purchased for as low as $150,000 or as much as $350,000.
