That's the "best of both worlds"!! Nice location & Davidson is such a quaint town.

My cousin was looking along the coast for the past 2 years & gave up. Between the hurricanes & the cost of insurance, it was untouchable for them for anything of decent size. They're now building in Mooresville & will vacation on the NC coast

I really like the 2nd pic! I hope to live in a craftsman or bungalow style house one day. I wonder how much a house like this would cost?

I to would 'rethink" the coast as opposed to lake front property.Once you are in your house and on the lake i dont think you'll want to leave it.
As far as an investment especially in Davidson you have made a wise choice.
Now are you currently living here?

We're moving from TN...............we are thinking exactly the same about living on the lake---that just maybe we'll like it so much that we'll just stay there for retirement and go to the coast for an occassional "beach fix"!

Glad you like it - that is our house.

In that sub that model house will cost $300K-$350K depending on how much you load it up with options.

Default Question about Waterfront in Davidson

Here's a questions for those people who have waterfront locations. Do you actually own the waterfront property? Would it be possible to truck in some sand an build a tiny "beach" on your waterfront--maybe even put in a token palm tree (if you could figure out how to protect it in the winter)? If I could just sit on some sand, look at a palm tree and watch the sun on the water, I wouldn't need to go to the beach.

Most lake developments specify where the lake ends and your property line begins. In Lake Lure, NC, lakefront property is subject to all rights the Town of Lake Lure may have to the 995’ contour elevation above sea level. The lake boundary is defined as the contour elevation 995’ MSL. The town claims ownership to all land covered by the waters of Lake Lure at full pond. Full pond is defined as the 990’ elevation. Therefore, someone building a boat house in the lake is actually building on town property and the construction must conform to town rules and regulations.
