Cottages and row homes line the edge of Silverock Cove.
Part of the plan when we designed Silverock Cove was to take the principles of New Urbanism and apply them to Smith Lake.
New Urbanism is mostly concerned with creating communities that are configured around the following aspects: walkability, diverse housing, quality architecture, connectivity, sustainability and a number of public spaces at the center of the community.
You are probably familiar with a number of communities built around the principles of New Urbanism. Communities such as Seaside, Florida and Blount Springs in Alabama utilized many of the ideas that have come from New Urbanism.
While Silverock is a small resort community, the fundamental approach to these design trends can be seen in the planning of the site.
The walking paths lead you past your neighbor’s porch and down to the swimming pools. The amphitheater is in the middle of the development, allowing for a perfect spot to have a picnic or toss a football. A mix of cottages and row homes enjoy lakeside views.
As our crews are now at work on Phase IV of Silverock, the initial vision is becoming a reality. If it’s been a while since you’ve visited us, come back by and take a look at all of the completed work. We believe Silverock Cove is a unique lake community, and one that is well suited to the environs of Smith Lake.
There is a lot of work going on in Phase IV at Silverock as several new homes are under construction. At the top of the hill, the new swimming pool is nearing completion, and should be ready to go later this Spring.
The new pool is secluded in a thick cover of trees, and will provide a relaxing spot for swimming and sunbathing at the edge of Silverock.
This week, the road in Phase IV was paved, so next time you visit you’ll have to drive around the loop and see all of the new progress.
Spring will be here before you know it. We’ll see you soon at the lake!
View of Point William from Smith Lake
Things are progressing at Point William–the development just down the road from Silverock. Some of the first homes are nearing completion, and photographer Chris Luker stopped by recently to document the progress.
Point William’s homes are situated among the rocks, looking down from a hilly vista over the lake. Construction is ongoing, and the road is nearing completion. Soon, work will begin on the pool and landscaping projects around the site.
