At a Glance
Adjacent to the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont NC, McLean is one of Lake Wylie’s last great settings for a large-scale, master-planned neighborhood. Upon completion McLean will be quite an addition to similar designed neighborhoods such as The Palisades, HandsMill on Lake Wylie and Reflection Pointe. The neighborhood features some of the area’s finest custom home builders. Lake Wylie waterfront and interior home sites are available. Still very much in it’s early stages of growth, McLean will eventually offer Buyers various price points and lot sizes to choose from.
McLean’s location on Lake Wylie is rich in history. Originally known as “Seven Oaks”, the area surrounding McLean was purchased by Daniel Stowe shortly after WWII. Stowe later donated the land currently occupied by Stowe Botanical Gardens. McLean takes it’s name from the historic John Davidson McLean house first built in the 1850s which still sits on the land.
What We Love
Impressive builders – both local and regional, gently slopping topography and a thoughtfully planned community overlay. McLean has all the makings for a fantastic neighborhood.
What We Don’t
Too soon to tell. However once construction & development are completed expect serious congestion on Highways 279 and 273 unless something is done to widen the roads.
Three sections feature different styles and lot sizes. South Shore has estate homes and waterfront sites with custom and semi-custom builders – prices from $600k. Overlake will feature traditional single family homes. The Conservancy now building low maintenance, cottage style single family homes from the mid $200k.
Towards the northern end of Lake Wylie at the intersection of NC Hwy 279 and NC Hwy 273, between the Catawba Creek inlet and the South Fork river. Adjacent to the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens.
