Whether you’re looking to build your dream family legacy home or you’re ready to escape to lake living right now, the popular Long Cove luxury community at Cedar Creek Lake has several options that’ll fit you.

If you’ve ever tried to purchase land to build your dream home from the ground up, you’ll know it’s not as easy as it sounds. Finding available land that’s truly buildable is a challenge. Luckily, Long Cove has a few last lakefront sites in the established Dodd’s Point neighborhood that can be combined to create an acre-plus of waterfront property ready for construction. The lakefront home site, available for $1.75 million, measures 0.775 acres with 227 feet of waterfront land. The adjacent lot is available and can be combined to add a half-acre.

Back in March we told you about Long Cove’s newest luxury lakefront neighborhood, Henderson Bay, and now we’ve got complete details about the sleek new townhomes being built there by Robert Elliott Custom Homes, starting from $695,000.

Since the beginning, we’ve followed Don McNamara’s Long Cove development as it’s become a sprawling 1,000-acre second-home haven and a go-to weekend spot for many in the Metroplex. Long Cove, located on the clear, deep end of Cedar Creek Reservoir, was inspired by getaways like those of the Seaside and Watercolor communities in Florida.

But this new 40-acre private and protected cove will feature sandy beach volleyball, a slide into the lake, lakeside fire pits, shared play fields, and rolling lawns. Plus there’s an amphitheater large enough to host an orchestra for outdoor concerts.

The contemporary two-story Long Cove townhomes have two different floor plans to choose from: a two-bedroom, three-bath interior lot home that has 2,422 square-feet or a three-bedroom, five-bath corner lot home that has an impressive 3,198 square-feet. In total, there will be only eight townhomes built. (more…)

Long Cove is hosting a Lake Home Sales Event for Henderson Bay, pictured here, this Saturday, March 31st on Cedar Creek Lake.

It all started with a big idea – to create a luxury lake front community close to Dallas with all the comforts of home, but without all the maintenance. A place where you can unplug, unwind, and enjoy time with your family and friends. That place is Long Cove, the brainchild of Dallas’ own Don McNamara, developer and investor behind Cityplace and West Village in Uptown. Inspired by getaways like those of Seaside, Watercolor, and Horseshoe Bay, the folks at Long Cove bring those memorable experiences closer to home, spanning more than 1,000 acres, and boasting six miles of shoreline at the clear, deep end of Cedar Creek Reservoir – and it just keeps getting better with newly developed Henderson Bay.
