Lake Hickory Living

Affordable, Beautiful, Great Location, Discover Paradise at Anchors Landing

Do you want to pay lower prices for waterfront property? Do you want a prime location that isn’t far to drive, but still has gorgeous deep water with great boating, fishing and breathtaking views? Does being in a gated, secure waterfront community appeal to you?

Of course, all of the above appeal to you. And, whether you live in the Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton area, Charlotte, Huntersville or Asheville, Anchors Landing on Lake Hickory is just your kind of neighborhood.

“Anchors Landing is no further from Charlotte than the north shore of Lake Norman,” says Matt Lahtela, Director of Sales and Marketing for Realty. “And, of course, at Lake Norman you have to contend with 1-77. If there’s an accident on Interstate 77, then it could take three hours or more to get home every night. That gets old.


“At Anchor’s Landing, traffic is the LEAST of our worries,” Lahtela says with a smile.

Lahtela points out that most local folks around Hickory have no further drive to Anchors Landing than a trip to the grocery store. For those in Charlotte and Asheville, it’s just a relaxing hour (or less!) away.

Yes, and there are other substantial advantages to Lake Hickory over most other recreational lakes. “Most of them, like Lake Norman, are so congested with boat traffic,” said Lahtela. “But Lake Hickory is a breath of fresh air … beautiful, tranquil, relaxing by comparison. And, the prices, well, someone was telling me about some lots in gated communities on Lake Norman going for about three-quarters-of-a-million dollars!”

In addition the beauty of bountiful wildlife and hardwoods, Anchors Landing has an exquisite lakefront clubhouse, swimming pool, community boat slips and dry boat storage and nature trails. Most of the homesites are heavily wooded and an acre or more. The topography of the land is rolling with many homesites sitting up high with spectacular views for miles. Nature lots start at an unbelievable $49,900!

“What an excellent value for your money these days,” Lahtela says of Anchors Landing. “Certificates of deposit are earning such a low rate and the stock market has been on a scary downward spiral. Im reading all of these top financial magazines and newspapers … The Washington Post, USA Today, and they’re saying waterfront real estate is such a safe place for your money. And they’re not making any more waterfront property, you know!”

Lahtela says his buyers come from all over the United States even China and Korea. “The fact that it’s a gated neighborhood is especially attractive to women, for the security. And the nature trails are a huge draw; I’ve seen studies that say walking/nature trails are the top amenity requested in upscale communities today. I’ve seen so many people walking their dogs at sunset. It seems so peaceful and relaxing.”

Anchors Landing has over 25 acres of stocked interior lakes that also have spectacular views and are equipped with sparkling fountains. ”You get the water, the great views, trees, the peacefulness, everything without taking a chance that a motor boat or jet ski will wake you up at 6 a.m. in the morning,” says Lahtela.

Pristine Lake Hickory has 105 miles of shoreline. Lahtela says it’s the third lake in a chain of lakes created by the Catawba River. “That means it’s two lakes nearer the ‘source’ than Lake Norman, and it’s naturally cleaner. And, it fluctuates the least of any of the lakes in the chain. That’s a huge plus because some recreational lakes fluctuate as much as 20 or 30 feet.”

The swimming pool at Anchors Landing includes a Jacuzzi spa and the clubhouse has a full-service kitchen, fireplace and hardwood floors. “Purchase a homesite here and you get the whole community,” says Lahtela. “And the location of this place is just perfect-l0 minutes to a 350-bed hospital, a regional airport and only about an hour and a half to the Greensboro area. And, listen to this, in about 35 or 40 minutes, you can be at the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Blowing Rock and Boone!”

Lahtela says great loan packages are being offered right now, including those that have long-term, low-interest financing. Another great advantage to becoming a part of Anchors Landing is that you can purchase your homesite now and build later, when you’re ready. And, you can choose your own custom builder. Whether for retirement, permanent or vacation home, building when you’re ready gives you great flexibility. You can buy at today’s prices, yet build when you’re ready.
