Tucked away on beautiful wooded lots along the Lake Norman shoreline are two side-by-side subdivisions that are truly separate but equal is most every way. Pine Isle and North Shore were the first Crescent Homes developments on the Brawley School Peninsula in Mooresville. The Point came shortly after these two smaller, serene waterfront communities.
In 1991, Crescent sold M.I. Homesthe Pine Isle land and Developer/Builder Robert Ingrim the North Shore land. Although they started out as separate subdivisions and still are in that they have different Home Owners Associations and amenities, I honestly think that they blend together so perfectly that they feel like they are one.
Located towards the end of Isle of Pines Rd in Mooresville, most of the lots are heavily wooded and truly offer a retreat feel. The homes range in size from about 2000 sq. ft. to over 5000 sq. ft. While mostly two story homes, there are one story ranches scattered throughout both subdivisions.
They both have Community Club Houses, pools, recreation areas and, most importantly, BOAT SLIPS. The original buyers of the lots/homes had the option, for $4000, to have a deeded boat slip. Most of them opted to buy one even though it was’t thought of as necessary.
Today, because of a shortage of boatslips on Lake Norman, it makes a huge difference if a home in North Shore or Pine Isle has a boat slip. Who knew?
In the past year 10 homes sold in Pine Isle and North Shore. Prices ranged from $330,000 to $1,150,000. If you take out the waterfront homes the average sales price for the past year was $391,780. This is partially a function our our current real estate market as there are some lovely $400,000+ homes for sale but that price range happens to have a glut of active listings in the greater Lake Norman area.
One detail to note: Robert Ingrim used Synthetic Stucco (North Shore) and M.I. used Hard-coat Stucco (Pine Isle). Many of the synthetic homes have been refaced with brick or siding but it is important to know this if you are thinking of buying. (See my article about Stucco).
