Year Purchased: 2013
About: We are both natives of Charlotte. We went to rival high schools and then rival colleges before we met after college back in Charlotte. Despite our different views on ACC basketball and football, we both agree on our love for Lake Wylie.
Why Lake Wylie: I grew up coming to Lake Wylie on the weekends to my parents cabin located very close to Sweetwater. After college I became a General Contractor, renovated their cabin and was able to live there while the renovations took place. (LUCKY ME!) Needless to say- I was hooked! I loved Lake Wylie. I had been looking for a place of my own and jumped at the opportunity when Sweetwater came on the market. The place needed some work, however it had a certain charm that I knew couldn't be passed up. We bought this wonderful cottage, renovated it for a year, and it is now available for rent.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Easy drive to downtown Charlotte, near Airport, yet a relaxed world away from crowds and noise.
