Aside from supplying surrounding counties with electricity and water, Lake Norman also happens to be a great place for house enthusiasts on the lookout for attractive real estate -- and one in particular caught our attention. Voted as the Wall Street Journal's House of the Week, this North Carolina home is truly a stunning waterfront retreat.
A little under fifty miles north of Charlotte, the house is seated on the banks of the state's largest man-made lake. This luxury property comes in at 9,000 square feet, complete with six bedrooms and six full-sized bathrooms. It also boasts several features that are worth mentioning: A deepwater dock that can anchor several water vehicles including jet skis and a 30-foot boat (whoa!) and a temperature-controlled wine room. The panoramic views are certainly nothing to scoff at, either.
Previously, the lakeside residence was listed on the market for $2.4 million, but it was made available last week for absolute auction (so, a required minimum bid isn't set.)
For images of the house as well as the homes it competed with this week, be sure to watch the video above. And for a peek at America's most expensive real estate, be sure to flip through our slideshow below.
