Twenty minutes north of Uptown Charlotte lays the waters of Lake Norman, making this a great getaway destination for Charlotteans or even better yet, a relaxing place to live.
Life seems a little more easy-going at the Lake! With over 520 miles of shoreline, water sports are in abundance. However, if you prefer to enjoy the water from a distance, you are sure to fill your itinerary with shopping, dining, golfing, etc. - there are plenty of places to make the most of your day.
Some of Charlotte's most magnificent homes line the shores, but no matter your price point you can find a place here.
