The Lake has over 104 miles of shoreline, totaling over 5,000 acres of surface area. Lake Tillery offers five public boat launches and two marinas. Lake Tillery is a full recreational lake, allowing jet skis, water skiing, swimming, tubing, boat docks, fishing, and other water activities. The lake abounds with many species of fish.
There are several things that have made Lake Tillery extremely attractive: the constant water level, water clarity, and the natural shoreline. Lake Tillery is surrounded by the Uwharrie Mountains on one side and Morrow Mountain State Park on the other. The attractive shoreline of Lake Tillery is one of its greatest assets. Progress Energy, the lake regulator, has kept over 17 miles of shoreline for natural areas and another 14 miles (approximately) of shoreline is subject to very restricted access (Impact Minimization Zones). In addition, Progress Energy also restricts waterfront development, therefore maintaining a tranquil and serene lake atmosphere. The shoreline displays custom built homes, ranging in price from $150,000 to $2,000,000 for lakefront homes, many with beautiful docks and some with second level viewing decks. Water access lots, non-dockable waterfront lots and dockable waterfront lots range in price from $15,000 to $70,000+. With boating traffic rated as low to moderate, you can see why so many people describe the natural beauty of Lake Tillery as "breathtaking." And when you see it, you will feel the same.
Lake Tillery, North Carolina has many beautiful communities located along its shore. Many communities here are luxurious and include large estate style lots and houses built by some of the area's leading custom home builders. Home architectural guidelines are in place to ensure that proper homes will meet the overall theme of the neighborhood. Precautions have been taken to keep the land in its pristine state. And to further protect the value of this community, certain subdivision deed restrictions apply, designed to assure the quality of the natural environment for years to come. Each individual property is unique and must be visited in person to truly appreciate.
