They are building homes at The Reserve at Morrison Plantation prices from $232,000 -but only 1 remaining now.It is very close to the lake and some homes had waterviews, but imagine they are gone. This is a new part of an older SD-Morrison plantation where there are also quite a few resales in your price range. I don't know how I feel about the older part of MP.Fairly large SD for the area and lots are smaller,roads in the SD a little busier, but it has a nice pool area and Tennis courts and is very close(walkable with sidewalks and pedestrian crossing)s to Lowes YMCA and shopping /restaurants etc and access to I77 to Charlotte.It doesn't have access to the lake for boats or swimming, but then majority of HOA/cooky cutter SDs don't.
Other similar SDs are Wyndham shores- quieter area but not much further from shops etc.Right next to Lake Norman elementary school. Has 2 pools/boat storage and a boat ramp. Larger lots. Smaller SD.
Also Winslow bay. My favorite SD out of these 3. Has tennis courts, park, pool and boat ramp. Larger lots. Some streets are nicer than others. Very walkable (IMO- I'm English!-about 1/2 mile) with sidewalks all the way to Winslow Bay commons which has super Target, TJ Max, Ross, Part city, etsmart etc plus coffee and a couple of places to eat. Further from Schools
but closer to I77. Very pleasant.
In these SDs you would expect to get a 2300-2500sq ft 3-4 bed or maybe bigger for around $200k
Harbor cove with pool and boat ramp. Very much the same as the last 2 and about the same prices/age etc. Again on a busy road like Water oak below.
Then there's Water oak which is newer (2005 onwards) . A little further out off a very busy road-close to the high school.
Right next door is a new shopping center with Harris Teeter and a few places to eat.
These lots are very small, but the homes are cute. It has a nice pool area and you can walk down to the edge of the lake.
Most of the homes are under 2000 sq ft but becasue its newer they are still around the $200k mark or less.
These are the SDs I would recommend for ones with pools and HOAs.They're all with 1 OR 2 miles of each other and have good access to I77 etc. Traffic on HWY 150 can get quite heavy at peak times, but it always moves and nothing like what we were used to in the UK.
These SDs are all within the city of Mooresville.They have city water/sewer and trash collection. The propertt taxes are about twice what you'll pay for a home that's Iredell county taxes only.
We are Iredell only .TV of $290k and we pay $1600 per year taxes.
If you don't have city water/sewer/trash then you have either a community well and you pay them for your water, or you have your own and your water is free!!! That's what we have. For sewer you have a septic tank.
Well water is divine!
Outside of these SDs into the more rural, less cookie cutter SDs there are many areas that have a mix of different ages/sizes and styles of homes around the lake.
We live in the area known as Mallard Head off Brawley School Rd. CLose to elementary and middle school and not far to LN High where our son goes. It's a penninsula with several roads off it and the lake and golf course are eveywhere really.
The SDs vary a lot.We live on one of the first established in the 60s when they created the lake, but all homes are different ages. Lots are .5 acres or more. Lots of trees-no pool or comm features but some of the non lake front homes are waterview. Others which are more likely to be in your price range back onto the golf course.
We live off Canvasback Rd.
My parent own a small house further down Brawley School Road off Stutts rd. This has Stutts Marina and Holiday Harbor Marina off it and has many different areas off it.Some are a little run down with some trailers, but others are pretty and there are some lovely waterfront homes. Parents bought their home in 2006 and never had any problems and it stands empty for 6 months of the year.
This is whwere the round house is. Some of the small SDs have community lake access with picnic tables and swim area etc. None have pools.
Lots of places to look at in your price range.
How close are you to moving here?
Town homes would be mainly right behind the shopping center at Morrison plantation
