2- and 3-acre lots now available

You can now live on the green of a former golf course. Lake James Acres offers lakefront properties. The landscape is all that remains of the Lake James Golf course, 7555 St. James Drive in Holiday Shore. Lake James Acres is a divided 96-acre 18-hole golf course into 37 lots at two and three acres apiece. They will be up for grabs August 1 for $70,000 to $80,000.

This project is two years in the making. Water and sewer service is finished, and work on the streets is almost complete. The owners closed the golf course in 2001, and TP inc. purchased the land the following year.

It's "country living with modern conveniences." The terrain includes multiple lakes that will touch most of the properties borders. Several will have the lake fronts.That way it's not going to be a subdivision-owned lake. Residents can fix and maintain their own property."

Buyers are free to build their own homes, but must meet specifications spelled out in a covenant. Rather than build a subdivision, we're letting people select their own builders. It's very personal.
