The west side of the lake is less developed. There are services at 73 and 16 (Lowes, Wal*Mart, grocers, etc.)

Concord is very suburban and likely more affordable than most areas of Huntersville / Mooresville. It has a great downtown, which is a nice counterpoint to the chain-stores on its southern border (which can be good if you need a run to Target). Plus, even though you don't want to live in the city, it's proximity to Charlotte allows you to take advantage of the larger city's resources pretty easily/regularly. Low crime, lots of really lovely parks and greenways, and festivals that have a small-town feel. I'd check it out.

Try Lake Wylie instead of Lake Norman. The Sanctuary is a very upscale neighborhood. Very quick to downtown.
