Privacy on Kerr Lake just got a little more private.
Lots on sale now in Somerset Plantation, the first gated community on the 50,000-acre lake that straddles North Carolina and Virginia. Kerr Lake extends 39 miles up the Roanoke River, and it has more than 850 miles of shoreline. Built by the Army Corps of Engineers to provide flood control and hydroelectric power, the lake also attracts boaters, fishers and campers. “You can always find privacy on Kerr Lake,” said W.A. Currin, who, along with his business partner Tommy Hester, is developing Somerset Plantation under T & W Investments in Henderson.
Nevertheless, Hester said he and Currin saw a need for a gated, private community on the lake. “We’ve been buying everything we could find on the lake.” Currin said. The partners – with 18 years’ experience developing and selling property at the lake – have fond memories of the lake. Hester learned to water-ski there, and Currin fished it. “It’s just such a fantastic lake,” said Currin, who has lived at several locations on Kerr Lake.The 51-lot development project took a lot of patience and a little luck.
