At a Glance
The Yachtsman is one of few dedicated Lake Wylie waterfront townhome communities. Located in the Steele Creek region of southwest Charlotte, The Yachtsman consists of approximately 100 interior and waterfront or waterview townhomes. Community amenities include a marina for residents, private beach area, pool, tennis court and dry boat storage.
Townhomes in The Yachtsman are made up of 1story, 2story and 3story units ranging from 2 to 3bedrooms. Despite the relatively few number of homes available in the community there is a fair amount of consistent turnover.
The rolling topography of the neighborhood is such that many non-waterfront townhomes still have a waterview of Lake Wylie, although it may be somewhat limited. The popularity of The Yachtsman remains strong for the overall convenient location to Charlotte and nearby retail.
What We Love
Wide, main-channel views of Lake Wylie for those lucky waterfront or waterview owners. Ponds and fountains throughout neighborhood provide alternative appealing views.
What We Don’t
Overall an attractive neighborhood but greater thought was needed to some elevation designs. The uniformity on some buildings are ho-hum.
Prices range from the mid $100k to high $200k. The 1story homes are harder to come by. Otherwise options are typically available.
The Steele Creek region of southwest Charlotte and Lake Wylie, off Shopton Road West. The Yachtsman sits on a slight peninsula overlooking the main channel of Lake Wylie – little to no through traffic.
