Tega Cay, South Carolina, Love where you Live?
If you are familiar with my blog, by now you have all figured out….I REALLY love where I live!~
And if you are NOT, welcome, let me show you some
Everyday I truly look around and feel there is no other place in the world I would rather be.
That is a great feeling too. It is a small suburb surrounded near big city life. We have the best of both worlds…if we want peace and quiet we have it. But then we are a cars ride away from beautiful cities surrounding our area. Our closets city is Charlotte, North Carolina, which is 15 minutes away.
The school systems here are top notch.
Raising both ours sons here have given them the best experienced being part of the band, traveling and not to mention a fabulous education. Both are sons are Clemson University attendee, and one graduated now going onto medical school.
One of our favorite things to do in the Summer is enjoy our Lake. Lake Wylie that is.
The man-made lake was first formed when the Catawba Power Company built the Catawba Dam and Power Plant near India Hook, South Carolina in 1904.
This dam impounded the Catawba River and created Lake Catawba, which was utilized to create hydro-electric power. In 1905 the Catawba Power Company became part of the Southern Power Company.
In 1924 the Southern Power Company raised the level of the dam and a built a new Catawba Hydroelectric Station to replace the original. This new facility opened in August 1925, increasing the surface area of Lake Catawba from 668 acres to 13,400 acres. The Southern Power Company was merged with Duke Power Company in 1927.
In October 1960 the power station was renamed the Wylie Hydroelectric Station and the lake was renamed Lake Wylie, both in honor of Dr. Walker Gill Wylie, one of the founders of the original Catawba Power Company that had created the lake and become Duke Power.
Not only is the Lake beautiful, the homes on the water are spectacular.
They truly have a little slice of heaven here.
Let’s take a look at some of the stunning homes on Lake Wylie. Lake front homes come at a premium price here.
