A home on the water. For many people this vision represents the ultimate residential dream. And when you buy a home in Davidson and Cornelius, the twin aquatic havens located just north of Charlotte, the dream becomes real.
Situated on the picturesque shores of radiant Lake Norman, Davidson and Cornelius represents a nature borne haven of azure crystalline waters and fresh ebullient green spaces. People bike and walk their way through its tree-lined trails and avenues and boat their way through its endless waters, stopping to gaze upon and immerse themselves in any number of scenic expansive parks and award-winning conservation spaces; indeed, Cornelius itself is home to no fewer than 10 parks as well as a famous country club, and also boasts a world class golf course. And Lake Norman State Park ranks among the most beautiful and stately area attractions.
And if anything rivals the vast natural splendor inherent in this area, it is the architectural wonder of homes in this area. Inspired by the classic architectural styles native to both Europe and the American south, these residences range from historical manses to sharp contemporary single family homes. Here you can still find broad front porches and sprawling, tree-lined lots; a perfect place to raise a family, retire, or just make your own home in a cradle of comfort.
It comes as no surprise that Davidson and Cornelius are prime places for fun and recreation.

Plus these historical towns, which claim their origins in the cottage and railroad industries, are home to national landmarks that include the Potts Plantation and Smith Cottage Complex.
These havens also serve as a haven for shoppers, as Downtown Davidson and Downtown Cornelius are both known for its vast variety of luxury boutiques and specialty shops, from bridal to gift to candy to consignment stores.
