At a Glance
RiverPointe is one of the older, planned development neighborhoods on the Charlotte, North Carolina side of Lake Wylie. Many of the attractive, traditional style homes were built back when Highway 49 was still a two lane road. And while the community may have been considered an outlying Charlotte neighborhood at one time, RiverPointe’s Steele Creek location has seen tremendous growth since the community was first developed.
RiverPointe’s established setting and traditional architecture make it a desirable neighborhood for many Lake Wylie home buyers. The rolling topography of the neighborhood creates extended, long-range lake views for both waterfront and interior homes. The tennis courts, lake-view community pool and particularly the boat slips are all desirable features of any Lake Wylie waterfront neighborhood.
Prominent Charlotteans, notable Lake Wylie residents and even professional NBA basketball players have all called RiverPointe “home” at one time or another.
What We Love
The established setting – mature trees and traditional architecture. RiverPointe is a “classic” neighborhood.
What We Don’t
The community is undergoing a shift. Prices represent a good value for the square footage, but some homes require a certain amount of upgrading.
Mostly 1990s and early 2000s traditional style architecture. Interior homes start at the mid $300s. Waterfront homes start around $600s – $700s.
Located in North Carolina off Hwy 49 South heading towards the Buster Boyd Bridge into South Carolina, (across the road from The Palisades entrance). Riverpointe is adjacent to the McDowell Nature Preserve.
Around the Block
Riverpointe’s prime location makes it convenient to much of the surrounding Lake Wylie area. Head to RiverGate for shopping, dining and retail – or cross the bridge for variations of the same. Adjacent McDowell Nature Preserve is the largest public park in all of Charlotte-Mecklenburg County & it’s right next door.
