Lake Norman Homes for Sale

As part of the Cowans Ford Dam construction in the early 1960s, the state’s largest man-made freshwater lake was also created, Lake Norman. Lake Norman in North Carolina comprises five hundred and twenty miles of shoreline with a fabulous location roughly twenty miles from Charlotte. Parts of the lake stretch into Lincoln County, Mecklenburg County, Catawba County, and Iredell County. What many do not know is, beneath the waters of Lake Norman there are a few undemolished towns, including buildings and roads, well concealed by the lake’s remarkable depth. 

In addition to an impressive amount of shoreline and a fantastic location, Lake Norman offers seemingly endless recreation opportunities, as well as quick and convenient access to the services, amenities, and attractions of multiple towns and cities. There are many restaurants and shopping options along the east side of Lake Norman. This part of the lakefront is more densely populated compared to other parts and is an excellent choice for those seeking an active lifestyle. Many of the communities that bound the lake on the east have historic downtowns and multiple choices for entertainment, shopping, and dining. On the west side of Lake Norman, the lifestyle is a bit more laid-back. The west side is considered the quiet side and neighborhoods are not as densely populated or as close together. 

At various points along the shoreline, you’ll find opportunities for paddleboarding, skiing, boating, and swimming. Fishing is also a popular pastime at Lake Norman as it is home to gar, bass hybrids, catfish, crappie, and bluegill. There are also Lake Norman cruises, and if you are lucky you might spot the local celebrity Lake Norman Monster. With several marinas along its shores, the lake is also on the Jet Sports Boats Association tour, in addition to hosting several yacht clubs and water sports teams. That said, the water isn’t the only benefit of living near Lake Norman. The surrounding area also encompasses four significant parks, multiple golf course communities, and an exotic animal zoo, not to mention the stunningly diverse housing choices.
