Our new listing is conveniently located near the back entrance of the Twin Oaks community, providing easy access to Floral Lane, which leads to the best Cornelius has to offer. Cornelius ranks 14 out of 183 as one of the best places to live in North Carolina, according to Niche. A highlight of living here is the walkability. Twin Oaks offers the opportunity to leave your car at home since most day-to-day activities (including a trip to Uptown Charlotte with nearby Park and Ride stops) can be done on foot.  However, if you prefer to drive, everything is just a short drive away.

Take a stroll on the paved walking track at James Hoyt Wilhelm Park—practically across the street.   James William Hoyt Park, nestled behind Cornelius Elementary in Cornelius, NC, features a well-maintained ball field, clean restrooms, and a smoothly paved walking track. This image captures the vibrant green spaces and recreational facilities that make it a favorite among local families and sports enthusiasts.


Visit a handful of boutique shops and gift stores on Catawba Avenue, or stop by the Cornelius library and greet the Mark Twain statue as he welcomes you to the vibrant Cornelius arts scene, all less than a mile away!   

Continue a couple of blocks east, and you will be greeted by the charming downtown “Old Town Cornelius” (OTC), known locally as the cultural arts hub of Lake Norman. This transformation is due to grassroots efforts by local visionaries who have brought arts and music festivals like the annual Tawba Walks and monthly 2nd Friday Festivals, as well as the new CAIN Performing Arts Center, which offers concerts, plays, and art classes to the public.

Grab a coffee, craft beer, or wine at the laid-back Old Town Public House (OTPH) while enjoying food truck eats and live music. At the heart of OTC, you'll find Oak Street Mill, which hosts an eclectic variety of shops and retail spaces, including the new Seven Oaks Venue, perfect for your next special event. Daily errands are a breeze with two grocery stores and pharmacies also located in OTC.

When it’s time to return home, you’ll appreciate that with only 66 homes and no rentals allowed, homeowners relish their low-maintenance lifestyle, confident that their neighbors are equally invested in the community. Connect with your neighbors and get involved in the community through the active Twin Oaks social calendar and clubhouse or take a dip at the neighborhood pool.

As you enter Twin Oaks, you'll find that all the homes are built from full brick with carports and driveways. Ample parking contributes significantly to the neighborhood's appeal, a feature you don’t miss until it's absent. You won’t see cars parked on the street, and the covered carport simplifies tasks like bringing in groceries or providing a dry area for guests to wait at the front door when it's raining.

Our listing is 19986 Oak Leaf Circle.  As you step inside, you'll find freshly painted rooms and a neutral color palette with hardwood, LVP, and tile flooring seamlessly flowing together. Cook meals in the functional kitchen, which features a gas stove, stainless appliances, and granite countertops, while the convenient laundry area also offers a gas dryer. Entertaining will be easy with the open kitchen overlooking a dining area and great room, which features a dramatic sloped ceiling and brick fireplace.

Appreciate the garden you've created in the backyard as you relax with an afternoon beverage while enjoying the library book you picked up in the morning or one of the many you keep in your built-in bookshelves in the front study/bedroom with adjacent full bath. In the evening, use the upstairs bonus room for a new hobby or host out-of-town guests.

At the end of the day, unwind in the primary bedroom with your spa-like bathroom, featuring a walk-in shower and sophisticated tile work. Organize your favorite reads or set up a cozy study in the second bedroom, adorned with built-in bookshelves and versatile enough to welcome guests.  The upstairs bonus room could be your new haven for hobbies or a retreat for quiet contemplation.

This move-in ready townhome has easy access to Uptown Charlotte, I-77, and Lake Norman. Most impressive is the opportunity to enjoy the low-maintenance 55+ lifestyle at a fraction of the cost of any other Active Adult Community in Cornelius.
