We are looking to relocate back to NC in this area. We want to be in the LKN area and want to build. However, one thing that I have noticed is that most existing homes have septic for their sewer. I've never had that and would prefer not to have it. Is there anywhere that you can build with city or county water? We are looking for about an acre so downtown is not an option. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Do you want to build on your own lot?

You're going to have trouble with this.. The infrastructure for city water/sewage isn't there yet, or at least in the good parts where you can get some acres and avoid congestion..

I would love for electric wells to be coded out for Denver and Mooresville. It's slow though..

Yeah there are 2 problems. 1) Most of the builders building neighborhoods that would likely have city water/sewer are building on smaller lots. 2) In order to get 1+ acre, it often means looking further out where city water/sewer is less likely.

What’s your budget?

Doing a quick search on the MLS, the closest I could find was 3735 Lenox Lane - this is in a neighborhood where most of the lots are smaller, but this one is 0.75

I also see a couple with septic tanks but at least on city water, such as 4243 Island Fox Lane, 8104 Graham Road, and several in a neighborhood called Harbor Oaks.

You might be able to go to the builders websites to see if they’re building anything that’s not on the MLS.

What don’t you like about wells/septic tanks? I just moved out of a house that had well/septic and they’re not bad. The septic in particular was hardly any maintenance. We had some issues with our well but I do miss not having a water bill.
