Do you want to be a part of Crescent’s next BIG upscale Lake Norman housing community? You will have to look north of Mooresville on up to Troutman to find Falls Cove, with plans for 740 lots on 900 acres located next to the Lake Norman State Park. Crescent ‘s sixth community on Lake Norman, Falls Cove’s homes are expected to range from the high $400,000s to more than $1 million. Starting in the $70,000s, lots will be one-half to two acres. Lot sales will be open to the public starting this Saturday, June 29th. Ground breaking is expected by late July and initial homes ready for buyers to customize by October.
According to today’s article in the Charlotte Observer, (www.charlotte.com) the architectural style will be “Southern Artisan, an adaption of the arts-and-crafts style in older urban neighborhoods such as Charlotte’s Dilworth.” Having sold authentic Craftsman homes in the Pasadena area, I find the “new” construction designs to be a very watered down version of the real thing and lacking in some of the wonderful architectural details. I’m hoping that these homes will have more of the original features!.
Falls Cove will actually be two distinct communities. Streamwood, which will be located in the town ofTroutman off Perth Rd , will have public sewers and 134 lots in its first phase. Parkwood, located in Iredell County, will be adjacent to the Lake Norman State Park. It’s first phase will have 80 lots including 60 waterfront lots with an opportunity for private docks.
The ten-acre amenity park will feature a community activities center with a full-time activities director, a junior Olympic pool, kid’s splash pool, a playground, a picnic pavilion and six tennis courts. “Meandering streams and seven miles of nature trails will run throughout the community and connect to the state park.”
What about traffic? The good news is that it will never be another Brawley School Road because there are three roads leading in and out of Fall Coves. So, even though it is 6 miles north of Mooresville, it may not be a bad commute to Charlotte or even up towards Statesville, Hickory or Winston-Salem.
