Located in South Charlotte on the shores of Lake Wylie, the site is a beautiful nature reserve community featuring mature hardwoods, rolling topography, and over seven miles of shoreline. The ±1300-acre site consists of less than 200 ‘private reserves,’ home sites ranging in size from 2 to 13 acres. The community will include more than 20 miles of nature trails and meandering hard surface trails interspersed with meditation areas, wilderness parks, and recreational parks throughout. A 17-acre campsite, the John James Audubon Lodge, serves as the community activity center with a watercraft center, tennis courts, swimming pool, stone amphitheater and picnic site. To sustain the natural setting and environment that define The Sanctuary at Lake Wylie, the project has integrated innovative measures into the infrastructure design and construction process. Low Impact Development (LID) methods have been employed in storm water management and erosion control and are maintained during individual lot development through Green Building Education provided to Guild Builders and Preserve Owners. Approximately 10 miles of roadway were designed and constructed to minimize environmental impact. Existing roads were improved to current NCDOT and CDOT standards to include reclamation and widening of 2.5 miles of Shopton Road.
