MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- If you're looking for luxurious lakefront neighborhoods, realtors will tell you The Point in Mooresville definitely makes the list. Earlier this year, Donald Trump inked a deal to pay $3 million for the golf course there. A recent check of houses on the market shows a wide range of prices from $460,000 all the way to $3.1 million.

One of those homes is listed by Julie Jones of Lake Norman Realty.

"This is one of the nicer ones," she said of the three-level home which offers an eastern view of the lake. "The first thing that you notice when you come into this room is your eye goes directly to the water," she explained as she gave us a tour of the opening foyer. "You can't see the ground."

Listed at $2.795 million, buyers can also purchase the furniture, bedding and window treatments, most of it custom-made for this house. There is evidence of that in the large dining room table.

Nearby, the kitchen has a double granite island and top-of-the-line appliances, something Jones said buyers in this price range expect.

"They expect all the bells and whistles," she added.

The first floor has a large master bedroom with windows also showing off the lake view. The nearby master bath has heated tile floors, a walk-in body spray shower and a television conveniently placed in the water closet. Upstairs, there are guest rooms, one with a private balcony overlooking the pool, the lakefront sandy beach and dock.

"It's your own private little piece of heaven," Jones said.

And if it happens to be raining outside, you can take a break in this home's over-the-top lower level.

A custom theatre is complete with red velvet curtains, seating for you and your closest friends, and a screen that Jones said cost around $32,000. All of the components are controlled from a touch screen control.

"On a scale of one to 10, this is probably a nine-and-a-half," she said.

When the movie is over, Jones says you can head to your very own bar. It faces the downstairs living area and game room and stands out because of its size.

"It is bigger than a lot of pubs," she said. The current owners love the home and all it offers, but Jones said for them, it was time to sell.

She's averaged a showing a week at the home since it went on the market about three months ago—pretty good after a few slower years in the high-end Lake Norman market.

"The upper price ranges have suffered the past few years, but this spring we feel like we've got a spring market again for the first time in three or four years," she said. She's optimistic the area she specializes in is making a healthy return.
