By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with THE TEMPLE TEAM

Lake Norman .... 

Located between Huntersville and Statesville has seen tremendous growth over the past 50 years since the lake was filled. A major Interstate - I77 was completed and made commuting from Charlotte to Lake Norman a breeze! Therefore, the Lake has become a very popular place to call home for many including, professional ball players, race car drivers, executives, retirees and those looking for a second home or vacation home. 

There are a wide variety of options to choose from when it comes to housing! There are condos, quaint cottages and bungalows, waterfront homes, waterview homes, mansions, country clubs and luxury resort style living ... the choice is yours!

In addition to the fabulous FUN aspects of Lake Norman, it’s appeal is also the close proximity to the city of Charlotte with it being only a short 12 mile drive north on I77 from the nation's second largest financial institution!
