Special Features

Waterfront Real Estate

There are 191 homes located at the waterfront and the typical frontage size is about 30 to 50 feet. The boat docks do come with many of the houses, but when it comes to owning a boat, it is completely voluntary. Although owning a boat is not a requirement, the boats are still exclusively owned by the association and thus, have a requirement of what type is allowed. Boats must be electrical (no gas or motors are allowed), and they must be no longer than 16 feet. The lake association offers boats that may be reserved for the homeowners who do not own a boat. Rentals include 3 touring/fishing boats, 3 party boats that seat up to 7 people, 3 paddleboats, and a large party boat that seats up to 10.

East Lake Village Clubhouse

Located adjacent to the lake, the clubhouse area is comprised of a kid’s pool, an adult pool, boat house, basketball and volleyball courts. The clubhouse itself features a fountain area, lounge area with plasma TV, and many free activities such as Super Bowl Sunday parties where neighbors can gather around together and socialize. In addition, there is also a downstairs room where parties are usually held.

Private Community

Perhaps one of the best features of East Lake Village is its private community. Although it is not gated, crime rates in East Lake Village remain very low. The majority of the facilities provided are only for residents. Required residential I.d.’s for use of facilities gives a sense of exclusivity to the neighborhood. For homebuyers who are searching for a neighborhood with clean surrounding areas and a safe environment, East Lake Village has a lot to offer.

Community Pool

East Lake Village has a park available for enjoyment with family and friends. It is about seven minutes drive from the main East Lake Village clubhouse.

Views

Generally, East Lake Village community has gorgeous mountain views that may be seen from many angles. The houses around Regency and Traditions, in particular, have a good location for the mountain views. Maybe the most desirable view in the neighborhood is to have an actual view of the lake. Many of the homes have waterfront views and always tend to sell at a premium.

Low Maintenance Yards

The advantage to this is that the relatively small yards are easy to clean and maintain and therefore does not need too much attention. This is especially important for homebuyers who do not have the time for gardening. For homebuyers who are into planting and attending to their yards, the East Lake yards still provide enough space for some garden area. A homebuyer looking for a giant yard or very large lot might have a tough time finding a satisfactory plot within the East Lake Village homes.

HOA but No Mello-Roos

The main HOA is $60 a month, which includes the gym, pool, lake and clubhouse. In addition to some the HOA dues, homeowners will need to consult with their board before the installation of satellite dishes and any exterior renovations.

Cul–de–sacs

Many homebuyers are looking for a quieter place for their homes and the cul-de sac features of East Lake may be perfect for that! Houses located on cul-de-sacs provide a quieter atmosphere away from the noise of main streets.
