Buying a spacious home in and around Lake Oconee in March and April is often hand-in-hand with consideration about the possibility of disposable income. Why? The Masters in Augusta is on many minds this time of year and, because rental rates for the Masters is often lucrative and can rival beach or mountain vacation rentals, homeowners with space to spare have a couple options open to them. Many can (and do) take advantage of a tax “perk” that allows Georgia residents to rent for up to 14 days without paying taxes on rental income.
However, what should also be on the radar of the corporate set is the purchase of one of the area’s spacious homes as a collaborative space. A recent focus on retreats where team members can come together to work, play, and rekindle their enthusiasm in an opulent, roomy environment, makes a luxury home at Lake Oconee a perfect solution.
There’s no question that corporate retreats are effective for team building and enhancing work relationships, but greater success is achieved when there is a balance between work and unstructured free time. Breaking up fervent brainstorming with outdoor activities such as what a lakefront property offers, can keep the brain moving and the creative juices flowing.
For example, 145 Barrington Hall in Great Waters is, quite literally, perfect for this purpose. With 8 bedrooms, 7 full baths (and 2 half baths), gourmet kitchen, multiple laundry rooms, 12-seat movie theatre, game room, exercise room, wine cellar, infinity pool, and additional apartment in 13,000+ square feet, this extraordinary home makes incredible use of space and provides plenty of breathing room for private time and also communal activities. Out of doors, 273 feet of water frontage on a large lot provides both sunset and sunrise views as fuel for soul-restoration and work epiphanies.
Set the scene for your own epiphany at any one of these lakefront luxury homes.
