Unique, custom, tranquil, serene, amazing!   I recently listed this gem in Lake Caroline.  For those of you not familiar with Lake Caroline here is what the Association has to say:

Lake Caroline is a gated community situated on a pristine lake, surrounded by 1,400 acres. We currently have over 1,000 single family homes located in  Caroline County, Ruther Glen, Virginia. (4 miles off of I95). Our lake covers approximately 277 acres flowing west to east. The lake is over two miles long with a depth averaging 15′ throughout, and 32′ at the dam. Graced by a 10 mile tree-lined shore, the lake is fed by numerous hillside springs, natural wells, and Stevens Mill Run.Nestled in the peaceful serenity of a lakeside community, our members enjoy many amenities throughout the year. Our residents have access to a swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, a clubhouse, and 24/7 security. In addition, there are two sandy beaches and nine recreation areas some with pavilions for parties or gatherings, providing lake access for swimming, boating and fishing. Water activities are available to all members via our two marinas.
