Cornelius Real Estate
Cornelius was established in the late 1800s as a cotton and farm community, and has since transformed itself into a laid-back, quaint town lining the shores of Lake Norman. Adding 54 miles of shoreline when the lake was first formed, Cornelius has become the place to be for home buyers seeking a waterfront residence.
Home owners in Cornelius enjoy a commute of less than 30 minutes to Uptown Charlotte and to the Charlotte / Douglas International Airport. The town sits just off I-77, with a convenient and innovative Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) at exit 28. Aesthetically pleasing and functional in its ability to reduce traffic congestion, the DDI was constructed in early 2015 and continues to be one of the pleasant surprises residents and visitors find in Cornelius.
