Lake Norman Waterfront Homes - The Overview

This quick introduction of Lake Norman provides some background information to help you while searching for waterfront homes on Lake Norman. Follow the links for more details.

Size & Location: Lake Norman is the largest lake in North Carolina with 530 miles of shoreline which is longer than entire state of North Carolina measured from East to West (503 miles). It is located just north of the major metro area of Charlotte, currently ranked 25th in the country. Lake Norman's size and location provides an abundance of waterfront homes and recreational areas located just 20 miles north of Charlotte, NC.

Finding your way around the Lake: Most people start exploring Lake Norman by traveling north from Charlotte on I-77. It helps in geographically understanding the southern and eastern shores of Lake Norman by referencing the Exits off of I-77.

The West side of the Lake is less developed yet offers excellent Lake Norman waterfront homes at good values. Explore this area using Hwy 16 (which also connects you directly to Charlotte) and Hwy 150 to drive around Lake Norman through the towns of Denver, NC and Sherrills Ford, NC.

Lake Norman Terminology: Main Channel View, Cove View, Deep Water, Water View and Low Taxes are all terms you will find as you search Lake Norman Waterfront Homes for Sale. Some of the terms are subjective or are used loosely but generally here is how they are defined.

Main Channel Views:
Views of larger channels of the lake that have coves feeding off of them. These views will vary in width and distance with some extending 7 miles. Note: There is not one specific channel that's referred to as the "main channel" but more a collection of channels around the lake. As a result, some of the "main channel views" will be more expansive than other.
Cove Views:
As the name indicates the views are of a cove. A cove is an area of the lake does not have any other large coves feeding from it. Coves vary in width and length and the views change from your location on the cove i.e. if you are looking across the cove or down the cove.
Deep Water:
There are varying interpretation of deep water. We consider a lot to have deep water if you have around 4 ft of water where the boat will rest in the dock. This will provide ample depth for boats of any size.
Water Views:
This can be the most subjective. Some homes will have fantastic views while not being waterfront. Other listings will advertise water views when you can see only a small portion of the lake while standing on the upper deck. Listing agents can only answer yes or no to wether a home is water view. To get an accurate context of the view, look through photos, read the remarks and check out google maps.
Low Taxes:
A listing advertising low taxes is comparing the home's taxes to Mecklenburg County Taxes. Iredell, Catawba and Lincoln counties all have lower taxes than Mecklenburg county.
