Lake Norman Waterfront Homes are sometimes referred to as the “inland sea” of North Carolina; it offers 520 miles (840 km) of shoreline and a surface area of more than 32,500 acres or 50 square miles. It is the biggest lake in NC. Full pond at Lake Norman is 760 feet above mean sea level. Interstate 77 and North Carolina Highway 150 cross Lake Norman at different points, and North Carolina Highway 73 passes just south of the lake at the foot of the Cowans Ford Dam.
As a place to live, Lake Norman is tough to beat. Just a short drive north from Uptown Charlotte, many who work in Center City live at the lake. Towns on the I-77 corridor include (from south to north) Huntersville, Cornelius Homes, Davidson, Mooresville. Towns on the west side of the lake include Denver NC, Sherrills Ford, and Terrell and have recently benefited from the completion of the new Hwy 16 bypass which makes for a breeze of a commute. In general, the east side is more cosmopolitan and has more to offer in the way of shopping and dining. However I-77 traffic can be brutal and the planned construction of new toll lanes will begin next year – so this will most likely exasperate the issue. The west side is more rural but is developing quickly now that the new highway 16 is complete. Commuting to downtown from the west side is considerably shorter. Both sides offer high-end subdivisions as well as hidden gems in unincorporated areas – so it’s all about what you like.
