The entire Lake Norman area is a beautiful and exciting place to live, but it’s hard to beat being right on the water! With over 520 miles of shoreline and 32,510 acres of surface area there is endless amounts of fun to be had on and off the water.
Lake Norman is not only beautiful but unique too.
Did you know that in the 1990’s, scientists found a species of freshwater jellyfish in Lake Norman and no one knows where they came from?
There is also an urban legend of a sea monster named “Normie” living in the depths of the lake. Good luck trying to spot him, though! (Learn more about Normie here.)
If you enjoy beauty, excitement, and a little bit of quirky, then Lake Norman may just be the place for you.

While most houses in the area take on a more traditional style, the custom home builder for this home constructed a well built steel frame home with unique angles and an emphasis on the easy-access sunning decks on both the upper and lower levels.
