When you imagine your custom luxury home, the location is as important as the home itself. What is a dream house without a dream view? If you’re building a custom home and want to ensure you have a beautiful view and plenty to do, you can have it all at Lake Norman. 

Lake Norman exemplifies what it means to live on the water. There are few other sites in North Carolina where traveling by boat is as enjoyable and exciting as traveling by car. At Lake Norman, you may view a peaceful, calm sunset over the water or dance to a concert from the comfort of your boat.

Here are five reasons to build your custom lake house at Lake Norman. 

Five Reasons to Build Your Custom Luxury Dream Home at Lake Norman

1) Lake Norman is Large

Lake Norman is the largest manmade lake in North Carolina. There are over five hundred miles of shoreline surrounding the lake, and much of it is available for residential development. How is that advantageous for homeowners and builders? There is still plenty of room for your custom luxury home. Land values are still relatively reasonable, generally ranging from $80,000 to $200,000 per acre. 

Even though hundreds of thousands of people live near Lake Norman, you can still find many peaceful communities and plenty of seclusions. If you like being close to shopping and entertainment while being able to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Lake Norman is the best of both worlds.

2) Lake Norman Has Great Weather

When you live at the lake, you want to enjoy lake life as much as possible. If you choose to build on a mountain lake, you might only have six months of good weather. Lake Norman is located in the perfect place for great views of the foothills while hardly ever being too cold to get out in a boat. 

The northern reaches of Lake Norman see a little more snow each winter than the southern portions. Generally, however, you can use the lake all year, with several months of comfortably warm temperatures for watersports.
