I hope you have enjoyed the lazy days of summer as much as we have. Try to “soak up” the last few precious weeks left before having to gear up for a much more structured, hectic time after the Labor Day holiday.
There are some great luxury properties available on the market right now and we have the opportunity to showcase a few of them this month inside the pages of this issue.

Unrivaled Golf Course and Lakefront Estate
By Linde Hyder
“The best of two worlds come together beautifully in this captivating French Country manor, where inspiring golf course views are surpassed only by pastoral lakefront vistas. Situated just outside the quaint township of New London, the 1.65-acre property is enviably positioned on the 14th hole of the exclusive Old North State Club, ranked among the Top Ten golf courses in North Carolina. Additionally, the residence overlooks Badin Lake, a 5,350-acre lake offering 115 miles of pristine shoreline and endless opportunities for water enthusiasts.” View Editorial

Our Favorite Lakefront Living Sanctuaries
By Alyssa Mammano
“Lake Norman, North Carolina
Surrounded by eclectic small towns, Lake Norman is 34 miles of peaceful outdoor sanctuary. Miles of walking trails draw locals outdoors to enjoy the clean, crisp air of Lake Norman’s four distinct seasons. Visitors venture to this charming college town for its picturesque downtown dotted with family-friendly shops and eateries. An old-world ambiance is evidenced through brick roads and historical architecture that comes alive with street vendors. On the water, greenways lead to the perfect picnic areas and paddleboarding opportunities.” View Editorial
Lake Life at its Finest
By Linde Hyder
“The sun rises over pristine water, marked only by the ripple of a jumping bass or gentle wake of a fishing boat. Morning coffee is enjoyed on the deck watching paddle boarders and kayakers. Later, after a busy afternoon spent tubing or skiing, it’s time to relax with a sunset cruise to the club for dinner. This is the essence of lake life. Add Lake Burton’s 62 miles of scenic shoreline punctuated with picturesque homes and you have lakefront living at its finest.” View Editorial
