With 520 miles of waterfront, Lake Norman homes for sale span a diverse shoreline, offering many view options.
The Good: Jaw dropping open “ocean like” views. Typically more private since no homes face directly at yours. Great lifestyle to watch all the boating activity.
The Bad: Much more boat traffic & noise, which leads to choppier water. This causes more wear on the dock, shoreline, and any boats you have in the water.
The Good: Coves are typically quieter and friendlier for swimming, kayaking, and paddle boarding. You'll deal with less wear and tear on everything in the water.
The Bad: Less private, as other waterfront homes may face yours. Water access might be limited in the winter season depending on cove size and depth.
