It is rare in the world of Lake Norman real estate to meet a developer whose passion is to build and develop while focused on integrating their new homes/plans with the surrounding established neighborhoods; and with an overall vision to create a better sense of community for the entire Denver area.
I had the pleasure of meeting with T.G Daniel, Jr. and Tom Daniel lll yesterday to hear about their short and long term plans for the Westport Club in Denver on the southwest side of Lake Norman. I was extremely impressed with their vision for the future of the greater Denver area and their desire to improve the existing community through their plans for residential, recreation and commercial development.
In 2005, the Daniel’s real estate development firm, Southern Home Management, purchased 250 acres in Denver on the west side of Lake Norman literally across the lake from the very end of Mooresville’s Brawley School Peninsula.
In addtion, they purchased 165 acres of land that was then the overgrown Westport Golf Course which had been closed since 2003. The Westport Golf Course, now 40 years old, was the very first golf course built on Lake Norman way back in 1968. The first thing the Daniel’s did was to restore the beautiful golf course and reopen the Westport Golf Club much to the delight of all of the surrounding neighbors!
The Phase I of the Westport Club housing development includes .5 acre+ lots for single family homes. Home buyers can choose from The Heathers at Westport Golf Club by Southhampton Homes, The Heathers at Westport Golf Club by St. Lawrence Homes or they can bring in their own custom home builder. Some lots are on the golf course or have golf course views.
The second community in Phase 1 is the urban and luxury town homes by Meeting Street. The 72 urban town homes start in the $130,000’s and the 58 luxury town homes start in the $225,000’s. A model home is already available on site.
In the third community in Phase 1, there will be 72 one-story patio condominiums. The home builder, WKB Properties, will be creating 4-unit buildings that will be designed to look like one large single family residence. As of now, the plans range from 1560 – 2100 square feet and will include all maintenance. A great place for active adults to enjoy a relaxing Lake Norman and golf club lifestyle!
One of the most exciting additions is going to thrill many residents around the entire Lake Norman area but especially the west side: The Club at WestPort! . Finally, Lake Norman will have a complete tennis, swim and fitness center whose focus will be on family, single and senior memberships for those looking for true, organized competitive tennis and swimming as well as fitness and training. Run by Robbie Smith of the Charlotte Racquet Club, this facility when complete will have a 5000 square foot club house, 8-13 clay tennis courts, a junior Olympic size pool (the only one planned on the west side of Lake Norman), splash park and 24 hour access to a fitness center.
Did I mention that this wonderful Westport Community is conveniently located about 20 minutes north of Charlotte?
In future articles I will write in more detail about the Westport Golf Club, walking trails, nearby amenities and Phase 2 of this exciting development!
