Remarks courtesy of the owners: Off the grid homestead! Imagine finding 18 beautiful acres bordered on one side overlooking a Georgia Power lake and the other side by the Chattahoochee National Forest. From your homesite, you see 600 feet down to the lake and the hills of both Georgia and South Carolina. Look at a map of Georgia in the far northeast corner. See that little dent where South Carolina pokes into Georgia. Zoom in closer and you’ll see lake Yonah and just to the east Tallulah Gorge. That dented in slice of the border, on top of the mountain overlooking the lake and South Carolina is your homestead. Fish in the lake and hunt in the forest! You could easily build three homes on the property and never see each other. The view is breathtaking. Feel the stress drain from your soul as you soak in the thought of owning this beautiful piece of land, just minutes from Toccoa and less than an hour from Gainesville, Ga. My brothers and I acquired the land in 1979 and built our own off-the-grid cabin. For years we used a gas generator and charged tractor batteries for electrical power. Our water source has always been rainwater, but we now have power from Georgia Power. You could have solar power! If you have ever thought about building off the grid, consider that you need a place to live while you build and this property comes with the original cabin. A few cuts below a finished home, but a large jump up from a tent. The cabin sleeps 4 and has an 1100 gallon water tank of running rainwater, a toilet, shower, and kitchen. A window ac unit cools it off in the summer and a wood-burning stove heats it in the winter. It’s a perfect stay place while you build your dream. Have you ever watched Living Off the Grid? Although there are other houses in the area, your land protects you for seeing or hearing them. Yes, it’s a steep drive with a switchback, but hey, you are on top of a mountain. Yes, there will be challenges in building, but we did it in the early ’80s and you will have the benefit of staying in the cabin we built as you build yours in this new millennium.
