‘Timberlake Lodge’ at The Lake at Lissara is getting its final touches for Spring Parade

'Timberlake Lodge'

The Lake at Lissara, a 254-acre low-impact neighborhood endorsed by beloved American realist artist and designer Bob Timberlake, has many folks eagerly awaiting the Spring Parade of Homes, with the emerald green Lake Lissara and the Adirondack-style lodge complete with all the finishing touches.

Reminiscent of a secluded mountain cove, The Lake at Lissara is located off Shallowford and Conrad Roads in Lewisville, steps away from the Yadkin River.  Scenic Lake Lissara, 21.5 acres and 65 feet deep, is the largest private lake built in Forsyth County in over 80 years.  

Lissara has intrigued, captured and stimulated Timberlake’s creative heart, mind, and hand.  He, not only an artist and designer, but also a conservationist, has guided many aspects of the community.

Entrance Feature
Timberlake’s design influence can be seen in special details throughout the neighborhood such as in the entrance layout, street signs and the greatly anticipated ‘Timberlake Lodge.’ His portrayal of a simple life lived in North Carolina epitomizes Life Lived Well™ at Lissara.

The Lake at Lissara has an inviting, rustic atmosphere with winding roads and wooded lots, blended well into the preserved natural surroundings.  Streams are spanned by arched stone bridges constructed from granite quarried on-site and majestic night sky views are protected by the lighting practices of the International Dark Sky Association.

View of Pilot Mountain
Perpetual conservation easements preserve over 50 acres of common area, streams and wetlands. Picturesque walking trails will wrap around 3 miles of shoreline protected by natural buffers, where views from Pilot Mountain can be enjoyed and rustic sounds of wildlife liberate the hearts of those who love the outdoors. 

With over 100 cumulative years of developing experience, and the last six devoted to Lissara, the developers are ecstatic with the results of the intensive planning and efforts by their dedicated team.

“Our intent was to create a place unlike any in the Piedmont area- coming home to Lissara will convey the sense of escape and relaxation that a vacation home offers in a gorgeous setting, only 10 minutes from downtown Winston-Salem. We are gratified that 12 purchasers have found us and shared our enthusiasm for this special place, even before our grand opening,” relays Brant Godfrey, of Lissara Partners. 

The development will have a total of 100 lots with Townlands lot prices starting at $72,500, Woodlands lots starting at $90,000, and Lakelands lots starting at $200,000. Home prices will range from the $400s to over $1 million; currently there is a home for sale built by David Stenson priced at $639,900.  The sizes of the lots range, but if you are looking for an estate tract, The Estates at Lissara offers lots to suit, from three to 30 acres, priced from $35,000 to $65,000 per acre.

Lots can be sold to builders and home buyers who wish to build now or later, with no time limit to begin building.

A few of the details inside the 'Timberlake Lodge'
The community lodge is constructed of stone and recycled pine timbers clad with a local poplar-bark. A stone, floor-to-ceiling fireplace rising under heavily rafted eaves that support a vast twig chandelier warmly welcomes its visitors.

With a full kitchen and bar, residents may utilize the Timberlake Lodge to host events for nearly 200 guests. Residents can spend the afternoon at the lodge visiting with a neighbor or pass the day relaxing in a rocking chair. Owners can enjoy particularly impressive panoramas of Lake Lissara from the observation deck or while paddling a kayak or canoe. The boat dock is offered to homeowners for launching approved water craft.

Gaelic for “beautiful valley,” Lissara is named after the origin of the McMordie family, the landowners of the lake valley who migrated from the Lissara Townlands, County Down, Kilmore Parish, Northern Ireland.
