Today we’re excited to share some BIG news for LakeTown! Legendary architect, Bobby McAlpine of McALPINE Designs, has officially selected Kennebec for the location of his next Lake Martin home. Bobby is a native of nearby Montgomery, Alabama and is no stranger to Lake Martin. Some of his earliest architectural designs line the shores and are some of the most sought-after properties on the lake. His distinct design style for Lake Martin is extremely recognizable and remains very popular to this day.
After visiting Kennebec, Bobby was instantly impressed by not only the architectural vision of the area, but also the commitment to preserving the natural roots of the land. He found the site he purchased exceptional and unique. He immediately recognized the long-term value of building in Kennebec and just couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
We are honored and excited to have Bobby McAlpine as a part of the Kennebec community.
