The Sanctuary - ,

The Sanctuary, a lakeside community on Lake Wylie in Charlotte, NC, proves that it's possible for a community to be idyllic and ideally situated just minutes from a business and cultural hub.

Only 20 percent of the land in the Sanctuary will ever be developed. Generously sized, wooded lots, ranging from 2 to 13 acres, allow owners the freedom to build multiple structures - from guest cottages to work studios. This beautiful 1,350-acre community features 17-acre waterfront amenities including The Camp & John James Audubon Lodge. Here, families play together at the pool, kid's room, exercise facilities, and the tennis courts. Nature trails wind along the shoreline and near interior for more than 20 miles. The boating center offers canoes and kayaks for exploring the coves and water trail.

Only minutes away from I-485, I-77, I-85 and the Charlotte Douglas Airport.
