Sunset Lake Highlights
As its name suggests, this neighborhood's crown jewel has to be Sunset Lake, a 125-acre body of water that showcases its own boathouse, lodge, and bridge. This natural lake dates back to an ancient stream that flowed over a granite dam—but today, it's the perfect place for residents to fish or boat all year-round.
Sunset Lake was originally developed into a subdivision in 1985. Today, the area consists of three separate neighborhoods: Sunset Lake, Sunset Lake Estates, and Sunset Lake Village. Each community has its own one-of-a-kind locale, but every home is sure to come packed with a vast variety of luxury features, as well as plenty of land.
