Property Description

31+ acres on Lake Norman. Owning Lake Norman waterfront property is a highly sought after commodity. With over 520 miles of shoreline, every single acre is spoken for and large vacant lots are few and far between. This offering of 31+ acres offers well over 400 feet of waterfront access, a secluded cove with a dock, great road frontage on Highway 16, as well as county water and sewer availability.


This offering is made up of two contiguous parcels that make up the 31+ acres to be sold together. The land borders Highway 16 on the west side and is mostly pines mixed with a few hardwoods as the land slopes down to the shoreline. The eastern side of the property has well over 400 feet of waterfront access with a nice dock. A creek on the north end of the property meanders through pretty hardwood bottom and feeds into Lake Norman.

Highest and best use is for the property to be rezoned for Mixed Use for commercial and residential opportunities.

However, this could be a perfect situation for someone wanting their own private legacy lakefront property.

Current Lincoln county zoning information can be provided upon request from qualified buyers.


There is an older home on the property along with a couple old barns. The home is over 100 years old and is inhabitable. The barns are fallen in and unusable also, however the barn wood could be salvaged for various creative projects. There are two different old road beds that lead you to the lake and to the creek bottom as well.
