Ranch Homes for Sale

Lake Norman, North Carolina, is the state’s largest man-made freshwater lake. It was the result of the construction of the Cowans Ford Dam established in the early 1960s. With five hundred and twenty miles of shoreline in multiple counties, it is an excellent place to buy a home just twenty miles from Charlotte. Parts of Lake Norman extend into Mecklenburg, Lincoln, Iredell, and Catawba Counties. Because of its massive area and the fact it borders several towns and cities in different counties, the real estate at Lake Norman is diverse and includes something for everyone. Among the popular homes at Lake Norman are several ranches. Ranch homes near Lake Nortman include single-story properties on and off the water. Regardless of their location, ranch homes offer homebuyers many advantages.

The advantages of living in a Lake Norman ranch home include one-level living without having to haul laundry or the vacuum cleaner up and downstairs. Without multi-levels, the risk of falling is decreased, life is easier on the knees, and it is easier to escape in the event of a fire. Additionally, noise doesn’t travel as easily across a ranch house compared to through floors, so ranch homes are generally quieter than multi-story homes. Moreover, ranch homes are typically easier to sell because they are always in demand, and this is even more true as baby boomers seek single-story homes in which to spend their golden years.

Other advantages of ranch homes include an open floorplan that often combines the family room, living room, and dining room into a single space that opens into the kitchen. This feature makes ranches great for hosting family dinners and holiday celebrations. Popular among the Lake Norman ranch homes are the waterfront ranch homes at Lake Norman. Lake Norman waterfront ranch homes are perfect for those seeking easy access to recreation opportunities, and beautiful views.
