The Sanctuary is a 1300 acre, Audubon International recognized, waterfront community on the North Carolina side of Lake Wylie. Wooded home sites, called “private reserves” begin at over 2 acres and range to over 13 acres. The Sanctuary includes a total of 187 custom-built homes, with an average lot size of 5 acres. Only 20 percent of The Sanctuary’s 1300 acres will be developed, the remaining land will be left untouched. Custom builders within The Sanctuary practice green-build construction.
Amenities include 200 acres of natural areas and seven miles of Lake Wylie shoreline, a waterfront lodge with swimming pools and tennis courts, fitness center and kitchen, a boating center for canoes and kayaks, and more than 20 miles of walking trails.
The Sanctuary is quickly becoming one of Lake Wylie's most sought-after custom home communities. Outdoor recreation activity abounds in this area, and new retail developments like Rivergate also offer dining, entertainment and convenient shopping.
