Located just around the corner from The Palisades on Youngblood Road is Southern Trace being built by Lennar Homes.
In addition to being convenient to the interstates, restaurants and retail, Southern Trace is convenient to McDowell Nature Preserve, Lake Wylie and Carowinds. Lake access is really close at the Copperhead Island public boat launch next to McDowell Nature Preserve.
Access to I-485 is approximately 20 minutes away. Charlotte Douglas International Airport is 12 miles from Southern Trace via Steele Creek Road, and Uptown is just under 40 minutes away depending on traffic. If works take you to the Ballantyne area then that is only 15 miles away. The closest everyday shopping is less than 3 miles away at Rivergate just east of McDowell.
Southern Trace has a pool and cabana for resident use.
The community offers several floor plans for 2- and 3-story homes on average size lots of a half acre or smaller.
Lennar is offering plans from two of its different home collections – Traditions and The Hall. Many of the homes feature brick and stone veneer with hardboard siding and large front porches.
Traditions homes are priced from $276,990s to $346,490s and are sized from 2,642 square feet to 4,734 square feet. Homes in The Hall collection start at $355,490s up to $429,990s. They are considerably larger starting at 3,567 square feet to more than 6,000 square feet. These plans include 3-car garages and 3-story homes.
There are 25 homes currently listed for sale in Southern Trace and all are new construction. Fourteen of the homes are under contract as of March 30.
Lennar sold 34 homes in the community during the last 12 months. Because it is a new home community, the sales data is not very useful for analyzing the market for Southern Trace homes, but the homes that have sold are averaging $100 per square foot.
The neighborhood is zoned for Palisades Park Elementary School, Southwest Middle School and Olympic High School.
There are many great Lake Wylie-area communities to choose from and Southern Trace is a great choice, especially if you want to be near Lake Wylie and also convenient to the Steele Creek area or South Charlotte.
