Yesterday afternoon I was at a few lake properties that are for sale with someone that is considering purchasing at Alexandria’s Chain of Lakes and was reminded of a good buy at the east side of Lake Carlos. The address is 8196 E Lake Carlos Drive NE (NO LONGER AVAILABLE….THIS PROPERTY SOLD) is a listing of Counselor Realty’s that went on the market late in October of 2013. It has 150 feet of nice and level shoreline. As you’ll see in the photo to the left showing the lake viewed from the porch, there is a little emergent vegetation to the left and some out in the distance. You will also see it in the video I recorded with my iPhone on October 30th.
Two points. First, in the video you will also see that this location has a nice, sandy bottom. And second, there is 150 feet and the emergent vegetation near the shoreline is on the left side of the property (looking at the lake from the home). The vegetation in the distance is attractive if you have young swimmers as it will keep irresponsible boaters safely away from them.
