Seven Lakes Ownership
Seven Lakes is an un-incorporated gated community located in Moore County- which is about 10 miles from the historic Village of Pinehurst- also know as the “Home of American Golf.”
From a tax perspective this means that there are no city taxes, only county taxes. The current county tax rate for Seven Lakes is .467 per $100,000 of assessed value, so someone with a house valued at $100,000 would pay $467 in taxes per year.
There is a Homeowners Association which maintains the entrance gate, the streets, the common areas, controls and enforces the restrictive covenants, and manages all of the amenities. The list of amenities includes seven lakes and their dams, the pool, the horses and stable, the clubhouse, tennis courts and playgrounds. The current annual fee for a home owner is $1,025 for all of these amenities.
There are two gated sections that are governed by the landowners association- The NORTH and the SOUTH. The “North Side” features the seven lakes, the pool and the stables while the “South Side” features 7 Lakes Country Club. Only property owners have access to the lakes, and all boats must have stickers to gain access. The golf course has members, but takes outside play every day of the week. The golf course is a gem and has been a favorite of golfers since it was built in the mid 70′s.
