A beautiful lakefront community that sits along both the North and South Carolina border. You can retire here, raise a family here, or even commute to Charlotte from here (it’s just 17 miles away), all while feeling like you are on a permanent vacation. Welcome to Lake Wylie.
When it comes to life in the Lake Wylie area, things are pretty laid-back and peaceful. It’s not hard to find a home on the water, and even if you are not already into boating or fishing, you might find yourself becoming interested if you hang around for a while. People take their boats to dinner — a far cry from the hustle and bustle of nearby Charlotte. The majority of the actual Lake Wylie community is in South Carolina with parts in North Carolina, which means plenty of access to jobs, shopping, schools, and entertainment. The weather in Lake Wylie rarely gets too cold. Summers are warm and humid and winters are usually mild. There really isn’t a reason not to fall in love with the area.
Lake Wylie itself dates back to 1904 when a dam was built near Fort Mill, South Carolina. That dam created what would become the oldest lake on the Catawba River. In 1924, the dam was rebuilt, creating a much larger lake. The name comes from Dr. W. Gil Wylie, the man who put together the original Catawba Power Company, which is now Duke Energy. Duke runs Lake Wylie these days, providing boat access, even water levels, and a fishing area year-round. The Lake provides water for Belmont, North Carolina and Rock Hill, South Carolina, as well as providing support for the Allen Steam Station, the Catawba Nuclear Station, and the Wylie Hydroelectric Station.
Lake Wylie in itself is an attraction. Locals love to fish, boat, swim, and spend entire weekends on the water. You can even eat at several restaurants that sit along the shores. Natural beauty beyond the lake is also important here, as there are several parks and even a botanical garden nearby. For shopping and other entertainment opportunities, Charlotte is just a few miles away, and it has everything you could ever imagine, ranging from museums and amusement parks to sports and concert venues.
As you might imagine, Lake Wylie offers ample lakefront living. It is like being on a quiet vacation getaway 365 days a year. There is also plenty of land for sale by the lake so you can build your own custom home along one of the area’s winding roads. Neighborhoods in Lake Wylie tend to be environmentally friendly, feature larger wooded lots, and some even have pools, clubhouses, tennis courts, and boat slips and docks. Whether you want an upscale home in an intimate neighborhood or something more laidback and secluded, you will find it all here. Apartments and condos are also available in some areas.
