New Home Communities in Cornelius

On the banks of Lake Norman, Cornelius makes an excellent retreat for the harried urbanite or perhaps the ideal location to retire. People have been coming here for decades for a variety of reasons, but the beauty of the lake, the low-key atmosphere, and the access to Charlotte, one of America's great up-and-coming cities, are the reasons they stay.

If you love being in the great outdoors, or even just seeing a lot of greenery out your window each morning, Cornelius is the perfect spot. Lake Norman is undeniably the centerpiece of the Cornelius area. At 50 square miles, with 520 miles of coastline, it's hard to miss when you take a look at the area. You'll notice innumerable boat repair shops, fishing and bait stores, and other accoutrements of lake life scattered around the area. Consider that your invitation to jump right in!

Cornelius is ideally located to take advantage of the lake-- it has the lion's share of the coastline, maximizing your chances of getting a view from your backyard, or at least living near one. Not to mention, if you do have a boat, you're never far from a boat launch, which puts Lake Norman at your fingertips.

But swimming, boating, and hiking aren't the only activities in the area. Give your hiking boots a break at Michael Waltrip's Racing World, as you listen to knowledgeable tour guides explain Michael Waltrip's legacy in the world of NASCAR racing. Part gift shop and part museum, this little shop is worth a visit, especially if you have a NASCAR fan or two in your family. Golf also takes center stage in Cornelius, whether you join The Peninsula Club for classic country-club golf. If you're less traditional in your approach to golf, or you have kids, head to Lake Norman Miniature Golf for a fun and entertaining afternoon of golf on a smaller scale.

If you are moving with kids, Cornelius is known for its commitment to education. Some of the best private schools in the Charlotte area are located in Cornelius. The Woodlawn School, St. Mark's Grammar School, Cannon School, and Davidson Day School are all just around the corner.
