Lake Norman is the largest man-made, deep-water lake in the Carolinas. It offers over 520 miles of stunning shoreline, is over 30 miles long and a mile wide at its largest point, which makes its nickname, “The Inland Sea” quite fitting. In the early 1960’s Duke Energy damned the Catawba River to create energy for the fast growing Charlotte area, and a last, Lake Norman was born.
Over time more and more waterfront land around the lake was slowly sold off and Lake Norman became a place where people would visit on weekends to get away from the city. As time went by development started and more and more families began calling Lake Norman home.
In the early 1990’s Cresent Communities started their biggest Lake Norman Community project to date; The Peninsula Club in Cornelius. Around 10 years later they launched another beautiful Luxury golf / waterfront community in Mooresville named The Point.
Although The Peninsula Club and The Point might be known as the 2 most standout communities on Lake Norman and are most definitely worthy of the hype, there are hundreds of other stunning waterfront communities along Lake Norman’s 520+ miles of shoreline that will more than suit your needs. When deciding on a home in the Lake Norman area, no matter the community, you cannot go wrong.
Residents of the Lake Norman area are just as excited to brag about their experience living here as they are to actually live here, which in itself is a testimony to just how great the lake lifestyle here can be. Being just 20 minutes north of a major city supported by a strong economy, 3 hours from the Ocean, 1.5 hours to the mountains and 4 beautiful seasons area are a few examples of that brag-worthy lifestyle, and the low cost of living is just the icing on the cake.
