The following is from the December 1988 echo. It’s interesting to see that many of the things covered in the article are still topics of discussion today, 30 years later. Take the following quote for example: “…’What are we?’ Please, let’s define what we are so we can be that. Again, it is the most difficult question we have: Are we a Resort, Country Club, Retirement Community, Subdivision, or etc.”

Click here (or click the listing photo below) to link to the listing information for 375 Cutthroat Ridge in Bent Tree. The 4 bed, 3½ bath home hit the market a few days ago with an asking price of $435,000.
UPDATE – The property did close on November 20, 2018, and sold for $145,000. That was $25k more than the home sold for in 2015.
The Georgia MLS info still shows the sales status of 1739 Little Hendricks Mountain Road as “Under Contract”. But, rumor has it that it closed before Thanksgiving. Click here to link to the listing information.
“The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. in the lower level of Club Tamarack. Come at 9 a.m. for coffee and donuts with your neighbors.” – L&W email
Bent Tree’s General Manager is the guest speaker.
Incidentally, two out of the three newly elected Board members (serving 2019-2021) are current (2018) officers of the Lake & Wildlife Committee.
Bent Tree Community Properties, Inc. (BTCPI) is the corporate entity established earlier this year to serve as the brokerage for Bent Tree Community Inc.’s (BTCI) plunge into the real estate business.
Those in attendance at yesterday’s BTCI Board meeting were given the opportunity to sit in on the first ever stockholder meeting of BTCPI. BTCI is currently the sole stockholder (500 shares) of BTCPI stock. The initial/current board of BTCPI consists of the directors of the 2018 board of BTCI, so those directors were the ones participating in this first meeting. Two actions were taken at the meeting. The first was to approve the steps taken so far to set up the new corporation (Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, etc). The second action set forth the structure of BTCPI’s Board beginning in 2019. There will be seven directors: The four officers of the 2019 BTCI Board will be members of the 2019 BTCPI Board (not necessarily as officers of BTCPI…but directors). The chair of the 2019 Land Analysis and Development Committee and the chair of the 2019 Architectural Committee will also be directors. The final director will be Gil Lewis, the broker. His agreement includes the provision that he will be the Vice President of Bent Tree Community Properties, Inc. It’s a whole new ball game, but with some of the same players.
1. a place, typically a large, deep pit, from which stone or other materials are or have been extracted.
2. game or prey; specifically: game hunted with hawks
The photos above and below were taken at the quarry on Sunday. Both definitions of the word came to mind when the hawk turned to stare at me.
The agenda for Tuesday’s Board of Directors Meeting is available on the official Bent Tree website. There are a lot of interesting items on the agenda, including some “Old Business” that I must’ve missed whenever it was first discussed as “New Business”.
Property owners may attend/observe Board meetings, but cannot participate in the discussions. If a property owner wants to address the Board about something, whether or not it is on the agenda, they may sign up before the meeting to speak at Open Forum.
