Enjoy the Lakeside Lifestyle in Your New Construction Home Near Charlotte, NC

The gentle lapping of water against the shore, the warm summer breeze rustling through the trees, and the peaceful stillness that comes from living on a lake are just a few reasons why so many people dream of owning a home on the water. 

Known for it’s beautiful sunsets and plethora of outdoor activities, Lake Norman is the most well-known lake in Charlotte, recently landing #7 on the Most Picturesque Landscapes in America list produced by Storyboards. In addition to Lake Norman, dozens of other lakes throughout the area make lakeside living an achievable dream for those in and around the Queen City.

The Dream vs. Reality

The draw of lakefront living is undeniable, but finding a lake home can be a challenge. The inventory on used homes continues to be low, with bidding wars and homes selling in under 24 hours, buyers in the Charlotte area are challenged with rising prices and few options. And those lucky buyers who win the bidding war are often settling for a home that they will ultimately spend more money to renovate to fit their needs.

For these reasons, many lake lovers are turning to new construction to eliminate the competition and have full control over designing the home of their dreams within their preferred budget. However, deciding to build comes with a new set of challenges–finding land, understanding the process and making the right choices can be overwhelming. 

The cost of building a custom home can be daunting, however there is another option. Building a semi-custom home allows you to save money by choosing from an established set of floor plans, but still allows the flexibility to modify the plans and personalize the home selections to design a dream home that is uniquely your own.

Caruso Homes takes the uncertainty out of building a new lakefront home. Our team has done the legwork to find premium lots in the areas that are most desired. We will be with you every step of the way. From empty lot to move-in, our team will guide you through the process to build a semi-custom home in the location of your dreams.

Discover Lakeside Properties

It all starts with finding the right location to build on. Caruso Homes lot and home packages offer the benefit of knowing that the property has already been assessed by our team and is viable to build on. We estimate the cost to build one of our Caruso Homes plans on the property, however the buyer is free to change the plan to another home that meets their needs. Then the fun begins–with hundreds of features and options to choose from and the ability to make customized changes, buyers are able to personalize their lake home to include everything their hearts desire.
