Waterfront Real Estate Auction

Smith Pointe Subdivision

10 Waterfront Building Lots and 2 Waterfront Recreational Lots

All on beautiful WEISS LAKE in a gated community with underground electricity, county water, and paved private road.

Selling on location at County Road 546, Centre, AL

     We are privileged to offer at public auction the Smith Pointe Subdivision. Smith Pointe was originally part of the Hugh Smith Estate. The heirs decided to develop this beautiful subdivision and spared no expense in their development. A private road was built that meets the county specs for a county road in Cherokee County. Underground utilities were ran including electricity and public water. A nice electric gate with stone columns is the entrance to this great waterfront community.


     Smith Pointe boasts over 4,400 feet of Weiss Lake shoreline. All lots are on very good water and most are on the Coosa River channel with easy access to the water. These beautiful waterfront lots are both open and wooded with level terrain from the road to the water. The 10 building lots have mild restrictions of 1,300 sq ft for a site built structure.  No mobile or modular homes are allowed on the building lots. The 2 recreational lots are restricted to only one camper, RV, or Alabama Power approved elevated structure per lot. This protects from overcrowding and keeps with the intent to make Smith Pointe a welcoming waterfront community for recreational purposes or for permanent waterfront living.


     Smith Pointe rests on beautiful Weiss Lake which consists of 30,200 acres and is fed by the Coosa River, Chattooga River and Little River. Weiss Lake offers over 447 miles of shoreline with shallow flats , large coves, under-water drop offs and deep channels. It is considered "The Crappie Capital of the World". Smith Pointe is nestled in the quiet countryside of northeast Alabama, and centrally located in the ABC Triangle of Atlanta, Birmingham and Chattanooga. Smith Pointe is only 10 minutes from Centre, AL or Cave Spring, GA and only 30 minutes from Gadsden, AL or Rome, GA. Cherokee County, Alabama is a great place to live, work, and play!

     This is YOUR opportunity to own some of the nicest waterfront lots remaining on Weiss Lake. The Smith family has decided to offer owner financing on these lots making it even easier for YOU to build that dream waterfront home or Alabama Power approved elevated structure or to simply find a great waterfront community to park your RV or camper. Get ready to cast your cares away for the weekend, the summer, or year round. Get ready to make Smith Pointe YOUR new favorite place to be! "There is No Life like the LAKE Life".
