The leisure and excitement of lakeside living, a comfortable, small town atmosphere, and convenient proximity to regional commercial and cultural centers, make Lake Wylie remarkably livable. For enterprising individuals, growing families and active retirees, Lake Wylie is indeed the perfect setting for home and business.
Nestled on the northwest shore of 12,445-acre Lake Wylie in York County, South Carolina, the community is ideally situated for both work and play. Lake Wylie is 17 miles from Charlotte NC, one of the nation's fastest-growing commercial and financial centers, and site of Charlotte Douglas International Airport; 15 miles from Rock Hill, strongly emerging as an economic hub in piedmont South Carolina; and less than 75 miles from Columbia, the capital of the Palmetto State. Residents of Lake Wylie also enjoy the advantage of living little more than a three-hour drive from the celebrated Carolina beaches and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Easy access to all points beyond the engaging surroundings of Lake Wylie, if desired, is provided by SC Highway 49, I-77 and I-85.
Lake Wylie's location, quality of life and the productive involvement of our residents have helped establish a dynamic business environment. Carefully planned infrastructure improvements and close attention to preserving the area's natural beauty assure continued quality growth.
The Lake Wylie community offers a wide range of housing options. Elegant lakeside living, cozy wooded neighborhoods and spacious, convenient condominiums add to the feeling that you are enjoying life in a year-round resort.
