Ready to build that waterfront dream home on Lake Wateree? Maybe looking for an affordable weekend retreat? An empty lot on Lake Wateree may be just what you need.
Duke Energy, and then its land management company, Crescent Land Management, has been selling-off Duke Energy owned property around Lake Wateree since the 1960s. One thing to keep in mind when looking for an empty lot on Lake Wateree, is that every lot on the lake has been purchased and sold many times since the '60s. If a lot is still vacant today, nearly 60 years later, there is a reason.
Duke energy drops the lake level every winter for maintenance, so you need to ensure your lot has enough water depth to absorb this drop and still have sufficient depth to float your boat at the end of your dock. If not, your lot is "mud front" half the year instead of "water front." You also need to ensure your lot has sufficient number of feet of water frontage to qualify for a dock permit, among other considerations.
