Lake Anna is the second largest lake entirely in Virginia, with 250 miles of shoreline and 13,000 acres of beautiful, clean water. The lake is 17 miles long and surrounded by rolling farmlands and hardwood forest. It is located in central Virginia between 3 major cities; Fredericksburg, Charlottesville and Richmond, and only an hour and a half from Washington, DC.
What about the fact that Lake Anna is over 17 miles long?
That’s a pretty big lake and Lake Anna is that big with over 250 miles of shoreline. Along those many miles of shoreline are waterfront homes, waterfront lots, water access homes, and water access lots, some of which are for sale. It’s easy to find out which ones are: just click on the appropriate links to the left or above and you will find them. Right now the inventory is plentiful. There are many choices no matter what type of property you are looking to buy. This just may be a great time to buy real estate be it a vacation home, land, a full time residence or an investment.
That brings us to the question… Why would you want to buy real estate here at Lake Anna? Could it be because it is still relatively inexpensive to have a lovely waterfront home on a beautiful piece of land with great views of Lake Anna for the fraction of the price of a similar home on a similar size lot along the Atlantic Ocean? Well, that’s a fact. If you crave the water, and many of us do, you can have the best of both worlds; a place near or on the water. Buying a re-sale home is possible or land can be purchased and a home built to your specifications. Your real estate options are many.
Lake Anna properties vary in price from low cost access lots to expensive luxurious homes on spectacular waterfront lots. There’s something here for every budget and no matter the cost of the land or the cost of the home, we all get to enjoy Lake Anna in the very same way. It is shared by all of us, even those that do not have property here at the lake. They have access through Lake Anna State Park and the marinas that surround the lake. It is often those that come to visit the state park and put their boats in at the marinas that find they want even more and they too decide to purchase their own spot at Lake Anna.
Whether you live here or are visiting, Lake Anna offers many pleasures. For those that love to spend time swimming, water skiing, tubing, fishing, sailing, kayaking or just feasting their eyes on the water, they’ll find that this is the place to do it. There are any number of fishing tournaments held for the avid and novice fisherman and woman. You’ll find all sizes and shapes of boats. Fortunately for us we do not have a limit on the size, or for that matter, the number of boats we own.
Lake Anna maintains it’s rural identity through the efforts of property owners and government entities. We are able to enjoy the best of both worlds, the proximity to large and mid-size metropolitan areas and the countryside that surrounds Lake Anna. It has proven to be a sanctuary for many of us.
