Cornelius and Davidson are two waterfront communities on the eastern side of Lake Norman. Located on interstate 77, these towns are popular choices for residents who prefer the tranquility of living near the water, while being able to easily commute into the city. Cornelius is best known for its award winning country club, The Peninsula, and its commitment to green living, boasting 10 local parks.
The town of Davidson derives its name from Davidson College, a prestigious school which predated the community and had a large impact on its development. Located 20 miles north of Charlotte, Davidson still has a quaint, small town feel as you walk down Main Street and visit the specialty stores and restaurants, but don’t be fooled, Davidson has a population of over 10,000 and continues to grow as a result of the continued development around Charlotte.
As with any lake community, there are a variety of housing options, from multi-million dollar waterfront homes to exclusive neighborhoods with large lots and sprawling lawns that offer lake access. With the continued development of both communities you could even build the home of your dreams on Lake Norman!
