A luxury lakefront neighborhood is back on the market of selling premium lots for upscale houses.

Stillwaters of Lake Robinson, a 50-acre gated residential community, has one new house under construction and several lots have closed or are near closing. Ten homes have been built on the almost 150 tiered lots overlooking the lake and toward the Cliffs at Glassy and Blue Ridge Mountains.

Joe Orr, a homeowner within arguably the most scenic community in greater Greer, is a stakeholder with Bald Eagle Partners. Orr has assembled a marketing team that is on site.

The property’s address Taylors in Greenville County.

“We’re running wide open,” Orr said. “We have our activity team together and are hearing from people around the country asking about these lots.”

The property lay dormant, when the country fell into a recession, for almost eight years with the exception of a handful of homes built.

A premium 10-boat dock has been built, a $35,000 upgrade to the pool with hot tub and clubhouse is scheduled. An area for grilling and kitchen use is available for homeowners. A fire pit is just outside the clubhouse and the one-mile shoreline has a nature trail.

The homes are geared for the empty nesters and upscale lake living, Orr said. 

Fishing, kayaking and pontoon boats are allowed on the lake. No swimming is allowed.

A community garden has been productive with plots for each participating homeowner. The trees lakeside have been cut to 10-feet to keep the integrity of the views.

“The relaunch of Stillwaters on Lake Robinson is another positive indication regarding the health and vitality of the City of Greer,” Perry Williams, a commissioner with the Commission of Public Works. “The commission is well positioned to provide the most reliable and inexpensive utilities to our new neighbors. We applaud the efforts of all those involved in this endeavor.”

Bald Eagle Partners LLC purchased the notes that had been held by banks and the remaining property, it was announced in 2013. The company secured $20 million to fund its program to acquire builder-ready lots in residential communities throughout southeastern United States.
