Home Tours will be Open to the Public on Weekends through December

The chic farmhouse decor of the Southern Living Inspired Home at Harbor Club on Lake Oconee

When Harbor Club on Lake Oconee was hand-picked as a Southern Living Inspired Community earlier this year the award-winning lake and golf community embarked on an ambitious partnership with the iconic publication that culminated this month with the grand opening of the beautifully conceived Southern Living Inspired Home.

Framed by the 11th hole of the award-winning Harbor Club golf course, the Southern Living Inspired Home is open to public tours every weekend through December; Saturdays 10am - 5pm, and Sundays 12pm - 5pm. And the home will be decked-out for the holidays starting Saturday, November 18.

Harbor Club general manager, Brandon Matney, points to the community’s quarter century legacy with Southern Living. Says Matney, “Many of the very earliest houses at Harbor Club were Southern Living Houseplans. Today, Harbor Club and Southern Living continue down the path of embracing the extraordinary virtues, culture and sense of lifestyle common only to the South.”

There is no charge to tour the Southern Living Inspired model home, although a $10 donation is suggested which will fully benefit the Greensboro-based Circle of Love Center. The center provides direct and support services to domestic violence victims and their children in Greene, Morgan, Putnam, Baldwin and Hancock counties (http://www.colinc.org).

The Southern Living Inspired Home is a 3,500-square-foot, four bedroom, four bath plan called The Woodmere, with a modern farmhouse décor with southern chic. The home was built by the community’s in-house homebuilding company, Patriot Builders, and offers a flexible plan on the main floor featuring a great room with fireplace, open concept eat-in kitchen and a formal dining room. Three bedrooms and two full baths flank the central living area with a split bedroom design.

Shiplap and other details adorn the public areas and master bedroom. A cathedral ceiling in the main living space is accented with true re-claimed timber frame beams. The spacious kitchen is offset but open to the living area, and features Woodmode cabinetry, quartz counter tops and professional grade appliances. The luxurious master bath features the same southern chic flair with a European bath twist. Additional second-level finished rooms offer more living space and/or guest bedroom accommodations. And an open-air outdoor living space comes complete with a central fire pit, oscillating fans and a grilling station, while bringing the impeccably groomed golf course into perfect view.

The Southern Living Inspired Home at Harbor Club incorporates the latest products and services of Southern Living national program sponsors; Pella Windows and Doors, Lennox Heating and Air Conditioning Systems, and James Hardie Siding and Trim.

The neighborhoods are marked by charm, taste, and Southern spirit that embody a distinctive pride of place.
