Why?
Searching for homes in the "Lake Wylie Area" can be challenging because Lake Wylie is located between North and South Carolina and consist of several counties and cities. To confuse matters there is a city of "Lake Wylie" but it only covers a small portion of the area. On the other hand, the larger cities have a footprint that would not be considered the "Lake Wylie Area". In addition, a city like Charlotte, touches 3 different lakes. So if you searched for "Charlotte and Waterfront" your results would include properties from Lake Norman, Mountain Island Lake as well as Lake Wylie.

Previously our MLS had a special designation for Lake Wylie called Area 15. This made searching within the Lake Wylie Area straight forward. With our new system this special designation no longer exist therefore we created the "Lake Wylie Options" feature to include properties only in the Lake Wylie Area.

Lake Wylie offers the relaxing lake lifestyle while being close to the cultural and commerical area of Charlotte, NC. With 325 miles of shorline there are many Lake Wylie homes for sale that provide fantastic recreational activities like boating, water skiing, sailing and golfing.

Lake Wylie is the only man-made lake that is located in both the states of North Carolina and South Carolina. The lake spans a surface area of approximately 13,400 acres and has nearly 325 miles of shore line. Lake Wylie is situated among three different counties: York (SC), Gaston (NC), and Mecklenburg (NC). Each of the three counties offers potential residents a wide variation of lifestyle choices. The Lake Wylie area consists of the cities of Lake Wylie, Tega Cay, Fort Mill, Rock Hill, Belmont, Clover, York and Charlotte. Each city has its own "personality", with a variety of shopping and amenities as well as different school systems.

The York County portion of Lake Wylie is just 17 miles from Charlotte, one of the fastest fastest growing commercial and financial centers in the South and the site of Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Lake Wylie is one of eleven lakes on the Catawba River, which is operated as a system by Duke Power, with water being progressed around each lake as desired by the power company.

Tega Cay South Carolina History

In 1970, the Ervin Company broke ground on 1,600 wooded acres of land on Lake Wylie formerly owned by the Duke Power Company. They named the area Tega Cay, meaning “beautiful peninsula” in Polynesian.

First built were the roads and then the clubhouse, along with pools, tennis courts and a golf course. Then home construction began, with a guard gate installed at the entrance. The Polynesian theme continued to be carried out through the entire town, from street names to home design to the clubhouse decor.

In 1982, in the middle of the contractor filing bankruptcy, Tega Cay became a city in order to ensure the privileges and defend the best interests of the Tega Cay homeowners and to better direct the community’s future. The people chose the strong Mayor form of government, with a mayor and four council members serving two-year terms.

The Police Department was established in July 1983. In the fall of 2000, the City annexed three new areas consisting of Stonecrest, Crescent and Nivens Creek Landing. Stonecrest will bring the first planned retail and commercial properties to the City, along with town homes and apartments. Crescent will consist of town homes, while Nivens Creek is owned by Duke Power and serves as a boat ramp for area residents.

  • 27 holes of golf and clubhouse/pavilion
  • 8 lighted tennis courts
  • Beach and swim center
