CORNELIUS, N.C. (October 30, 2020) — An extraordinary $5.25 million waterfront home is the highest-priced residential sale in Cornelius. Located at 16914 Belle Isle Drive, the estate is perched on nearly 400 feet of shoreline and boasts a covered boat dock, private beach area and panoramic water views. Marzia Mazzotti, of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Lake Norman office, brought the buyer.

Luxurious interior features include seven fireplaces; a custom chef’s kitchen with Sub-Zero refrigerator, two dishwashers, 12-foot ceiling and reclaimed beams; private master retreat with spa-like bath and morning bar; wine storage room with cooling unit; and home gym. An expansive lakeside terrace showcases retractable screens, radiant heat, wood-burning fireplace and outdoor kitchen with gas grill and double-burner cooktop. A new synthetic boat dock is crafted with a covered electric lift and dual sports port, offering the ultimate lake lifestyle.


“This home is exquisite and its location is even better. The Florida-based buyers were drawn to its level of privacy, expansive water views, large backyard and laid-back lakeside vibe. The record sales price indicates a strong luxury market, and the wide-range appeal of Cornelius in particular.”
