Overlook is the award-winning lake community that led the way for explosive growth in northwest Mecklenburg County, NC. It was developed by Crescent Resources, the real estate arm of Duke Energy, as a way to demonstrate that neighborhood development can successfully co-exist with the valuable natural environment of Mountain Island Lake. One third of Overlook's homes are directly on the lake, one third have deeded community boat slips and one third have use of the community's boat storage lot. Overlook is truly a lake community.
The neighborhood features private lake access, a clubhouse and pool, playgrounds, and nature trails. Because Mountain Island Lake is the water source for Charlotte and several counties, trees and natural vegetation remain undisturbed -- one reason why residents marvel at being away from it all while still being close by. Uptown Charlotte is an easy 20-minute commute and some of Charlotte's best schools, NorthLake Mall and the National Whitewater Center are only minutes away.
