If you have been looking for a peaceful place on or around Lake Norman with that small town feel, but close to the big city, then Lincoln and Catawba counties on the west side of Lake Norman might be the perfect fit for your new custom home. Whether you are a retiree or a family, this area is excellent for both. There are several small towns on the west side of Lake Norman such as Denver, Iron Station, Terrell, and Sherrills Ford – where we are building our new custom home model, the Claremont, that will be opening later this year. There’s lots of land for sale on and off Lake Norman that would be an excellent fit for an Arthur Rutenberg custom home.
The small towns on the west side of Lake Norman are some of this area’s best-kept secrets. Denver, formerly known as Dry Pond due to a small pond that was located at the corner of Highway 16 and Campground road that would dry up during the summer heat, has a lot of family-owned shops and restaurants that help create that small town feel. They also boast some beautiful neighborhoods and highly rated schools – making a new custom home a good investment in this area. While it is growing, it still has a firm grip on that tight-knit community that makes it so unique.
Just up the road from Denver, you will find Iron Station which received its name due to its history as a mining town with a train station. Although Iron Station seems pretty intertwined with Denver as a community, it is a quiet little town of its own with some beautiful acreage for sale that would give you plenty of space to build the custom home of your dreams. It is also home to our current model in Verdict Ridge which is in a golf course community. If you are looking for land in the highly rated Lincoln County School District, Iron Station is it.
One county over, in Catawba, you will find Terrell and Sherrills Ford, not far from Mooresville. This area boasts some beautiful lots on Lake Norman, such as Pearl Springs Village, the location of our upcoming new model the Claremont. This area is growing quickly, with plans for a Birkdale style shopping center right in between Sherrills Ford and Terrell.
If you are looking to build your new custom home in a country setting or a small town community, all while being close to Charlotte, then come and visit us at our current model in Verdict Ridge at 2208 Pine Valley Drive in Denver.
